Where does the time go?

I'm gaining great inspiration from the guest post over at Yes and Yes.
Keeping up the blogging is the key for me, even if it's just posting something that makes me smile if I' stuck for words helps me recover. Maybe it does for others too?

I really need to go buy some black clothing for a funeral. I found that I really don't wear black smartly or formally, if at all really. Most of my clothing is blue or pale colours and some vibrant but no key pieces which are black. Would you say this is a good or bad thing.
At the moment I'm finding it a frustrating thing as I haven't got the money to buy something new just for one day so I'm trying to be wise and buy something that I can wear over and over for everyday wear as well. It's proving tricky. But I've narrowed it down to a couple of things.

From Next

Now I like this but does it seem a bit too showy? I would wear it with black trousers and a black coat/lose cardigan.

From Next

Or perhaps the second one which looks a bit more formal but it might be too clingy.Although I could wear this with tights/leggings and heels with a black coat. I really don't know but both are at the limit of my budget, if not over it.

From New look
This seems a lot more workable and a bit cheaper. But is it a bit boring? And I'm not sure which size to get. This too I'd wear with trousers because I think it's length is shorter than it looks.

Sometimes I wish I was a bloke so I could wear a suit. Still. I wish I didn't have to think about these sorts of things. It's not something I should be thinking about right now. But in blogging it it's helped me to decide a bit more. I shall have to take the plunge and probably get either the top or the bottom one as they seem more appropriate.

Anyway, check out that guest post on Yes and Yes, it's great if you're in a rut. Have fun today and take care.


  1. Yeah, I personally think the first one isn't quite right for a funeral, but either of the other two looks nice!

  2. I managed to buy two nice things in a sale for £14. I was impressed. I'll do a post about it when I have some more time, it'll probably be after or during this weekend when I have time to do a proper longer post.
    But who knows, I might be able to get a picture up before then.
    And yeah, I thought the first one wasn't quite right, but it was the first black thing I found that I liked too that was kinda in my budget hehe.


I love it when you leave comments and I try and get back to you as soon as possible once I've read it. I also like to check out what you have to offer, so don't be afraid to leave your blog link too!
Thank you! ☺
