Day 360: The King and I

              • Purple dress: Gap
              • Boots: Primark
              • Scarf: M&Co

Had a lovely cultured day today. I spent the day with my Aunt and we went shopping, visited the newly reopened and fabulous Portrit Gallery, had an early dinner and then went to see the King and I at the theatre. The show was really excellent.

I do love this dress and am trying to style it diffeently every time. I hadn't thought about pairing it with this scarf until I stood in front of the rack of scarves in my wardrobe. It leapt out and I really loved the colour combinations.

Day 358: Back to reality

              • Purple dress: Gap
              • Jeggings: M&S
              • Boots: Primark
              • Cardi: Gap
              • Scarf: M&S

Well the festivities are well and truly over now and its back to reality. I don't return to work for at least another week so have plans for catching up with things in the house, friends and of course the final pieces of training before the big run at the end of the week.

Day 356: Extension mention


          • Aubergine lace top: M&Co
          • Black leggings: Gap
          • Shoe boots: Marks and Spencer
          • Scarf: Marks and Spencer

So I had a fairly relaxed Hogmany. Attended a concert at the Concert Hall and then home for the bells with family.

I had forgotten that I had bought some hair extensions so decided to try them out this evening. They are quite a good match with the rest of my hair although not a lot longer in length. The effect is more about biggar hair than longer locks!

Day 355: Autumn/Winter 2011 trend challenge - Jewel tones

I am returning to my Vogue challenge to create all their key Autumn/Winter 2011 trends from the clothes I already have in my wardrobe, since I'm banned from shopping. Today's look is all about jewel tones.

This look is all about sumptious colours and fabrics and I have chosen the amthyst hue.

Vogue UK's Spring/Summer 2011 catwalk report

              • Purple dress: M&S
              • Boots: Primark
              • Purple tights: M&S
              • Beads: East (gift)

I do love this dress but finding new ways to wear it has been challenging. I would normally have gone for a contrasting colour of tights but the challenge gave me the chance try out the look.

I think in the case of Lori's Wardrobe versus jewel tones that  this season's trend can be created without a visit to the High Street.

Day 346: Braw britches

              • Jeggings: M&S
              • Black cardi: Gap
              • Boots: Primark
              • Pashmina: Bazaar, Turkey

I am yet again rocking the top knot. These jeggings are now to big for me round the front and it wasn't until I saw this image that I realised they now look like an old fashioned pair of britches - they gotta go!

Day 345: Uggs are for mugs

              • Jeggings: M&S
              • White lst: Primark
              • Cardi: Primark
              • Boots: Ugg Australia

Actually they are not, I love my ugly beautiful Ugg boots but I have barely worn them this year. They seemed just the thing to go with a lazy day.
