Fashion related (and totally non-fashion related) things that have made my world go round over the last seven days…
Spring forwards, Fall back
This is it. I’ve been in denial about the changing seasons for weeks now but as the clocks go back and the collective sigh from fashion bloggers can be heard across Twitter (goodbye, post-work outfit post photographs) I’ve finally acknowledged that it’s no longer summer. To combat the glumness, I’ve been filling my evenings with Scrabble, rugby matches – a rather soggy Gloucester vs Bath on Friday – and lots of comfort food.
This week the Great British Bake Off final aired and my friend Polly was in town from London, so we hunkered down on the sofa with some homemade rocky road to watch it. I was Team Kimberly and Polly was Team Frances – in case you haven’t seen it yet I won’t mention the winner, but will instead direct you to this article written by the other finalist, Ruby Tandoh. I first spotted it on Charlotte’s blog and it really struck a cord with me, not least because I found myself reading far too much into each contestant’s comments and expressions than was necessary.
Fitness + Fashion
On the blog this week, I wrote about what to wear when you don’t want to exercise. For me that means wearing something that’s comfortable, practical and that looks good – shameless as it sounds, it really does motivate me when I feel good about what I’m working out in. Fitness aside, I’m off to Berlin soon so if you have any travel tips for me don’t forget to leave them on this post!
