Getting Dressed IRL





It’s all well and good being interested in fashion and outfits and using Pinterest to pin all the beautiful women you wish you looked/dressed like (here’s looking at you) but some days don’t we all just wake up and say ergh, no.

As in, no, today I will not be wearing dungarees, or mules, or a chic pinstriped suit. Today I will not Instagram my almond milk soy latte with chia seeds or photograph the Net A Porter box that was delivered to my doorstep in the middle of the night.

Today I will be wearing black jeans, stripes and loafers. Because deep down I’m boring and lazy.

Sorry to disappoint you all, but here’s to getting dressed ‘In Real Life’. To wearing the jeans that are comfy. To wearing the shoes that mean you can run for the bus. And the t-shirt that conceals the fact you had a red velvet cupcake for lunch. GIRL POWER.

Jacket – MiH Jeans (how is the still not sold out? I’m baffled. It’s such a good deal!) / Jeans – Paige Denim / Shoes – Mango / T-Shirt – Cos


  • Very chic and comfortable outfit for a real everyday wear. Definitely realistic yet very put together!


    • Thank you Rachel! I’m glad you think it looks put together – always good when you have to go to work but feel like staying in bed! xx

  • FAB post! This is so true for me everyday, if I actually blogged what I wore everyday it would bore everyone to tears cos it’s always the bloody same. This combo here is pretty damn perfect, that jacket is uhhmazing!

    Yes this is so true!!! My everyday uniform consists of comfy tees, black ripped jeans and converse. Especially for school, I’d pick comfiness over anything :p

    I love this post, so true! However you make the casual look still look super stylish. My “Casual look” is more sweat pants and tshirts…clutching ben and jerrys with netfixs on.
