Walk this way

Happy Halloween! to those of you celebrating. :) We dont celebrate halloween in Norway but kids like to dress up like little monsters and roam the streets for tricks and treats. :)

Hello floral pants!! Hi there blue heeels! Im really pleased with this ensemble, how it all came together. One of my absolute favourites. I owe it all to those fabularse pantsies which I first laid eyes on during my blogreading. I really love to be inspired by different style bloggers, in this case I squealed a little when the magnificent Catherine from Not dressed as lamb wore these pants. You can see how she styled them here.

Its my first time ever purchasing pants from a webshop as I prefer to try them on before I buy. I have long legs and regular lengths are usually too short. But I couldnt get these floral babies out of my head so I took the plunge after reading the description carefully. The length is fine but I wouldnt mind them being a tad longer, hopefully they wont shrink when washed. Then I will have to wear them with knee length boots only. :)

Another sunny day when I took these pics, but now its back to raining cats and dogs. ;)

Strike a pose!! Im trying to work those heels with an attitude, not sure Im pulling it off though. :P No they are NOT Jeffrey Campbells, just some cheap lookalike/copycats whatever. ;) I spotted them in Norwegian woman magazine where they had done a makeover on a middle age woman and she was wearing these shoes among others. Well if she can then I can I thought to myself and here we are. :) I might be sporting a mutton dressed as lamb but frankly I dont care as the shoes are rocking. ;)

My kittie crew abandoned me this time but luckily my dear frenchie came to my rescue. She apparantly prefers to stay anonymous when portrayed on the blog. :P *laughs*

What Im wearing:

Blazer (oooold)
Top from Boden

Office babe

Im sporting my new pencil skirt from HM, love at first sight it was. :) I hardly have any pencil skirts in my wardrobe cause I have been afraid of them being too bootylicious to wear at work. I know pencil skirts are actually considered appropriate work wear but at my workplace they are scarse. :) I think its due to my office having a casual dresscode and people tend to think that skirts like these are wayyyy to dressed up. :P

Well its high time someone sets the stakes higher, I stribe to make my work environment more feminine and dolled up. :P I guess Im the "office babe" :P Heheheeee Well I dont exactly fit the bill, me wearing no makeup. ;)

My mustard cute shoes from the side, I love em! :) Im currently lusting after another pair similar to these but in green and purple.

Heh my feet look like logs here, must be the camera angle. :)

What Im wearing:

Cardigan from Dorothy Perkins
Top from HM
Skirt from HM (recent)
Tights from Lindex
Shoes from Poetic License

Sunny chevron

Heh didnt take me long to get back on the dress track. ;) I just received this magnificent midi chevron dress from the River Island sale, 50 %  off, cost me only 12 GBP, thats a total bargain in my book. :) There was only one left and it was in my size, I guess I got lucky that day. :P

Meet the crew behind Colour makes people. :P *laughs* Its lovely to have my team, cheering/purring me on as I do my shots/poses routine. Hehehe, click on pic for enlargement. I found it quite challenging to style this dress, bold print and all,  I went for red accents this time.

I love midi dresses/skirts from River island as they often come in a quirky print or vivid colours, just my cup of tea. :) My hubby actually approved of this dress, for once I didnt look like a clown (to him). :P He is quite the conservative dresser himself so thats why. :) More often than not my outfits are too much for him, but I dont give a toss, teeheee. :P Oh I forgot, sideview of boots.

I do love this time of year, the leaves are so beautiful in an array or red, orange, brown and green. I just had to take some photos in front of this tree. :)

I love how the sun caresses my face, making me glow. ;) The style angel sent from above, haha.

Rocking plaids

Every once in a while I feel the need to take a break from my ususal dress/skirt routine, to shake things up a bit. ;) Bring on skinny jeans, ankle boots and a top of some kind and Im good to go. :) I feel more edgy and sassy in skinny jeans than in pretty dresses, hehehee. Epic fail - do not wear white socks with this ensemble :P My leg is pale alright but not bleaching white. ;)

This is my first biker jacket, not real leather though. :P I really like this burgundy colour, didnt think it would suit me but looks ok I think.

Open jacket, heh not the most fierce look/pose Ive got goin, hehehhe but believe me Im not always a goody two shoes in pretty dresses. :P

Tossed the jacket, I love love love this plaid shirt, I wish I had more plaid garments in my wardrobe.

A close up. :)

What Im wearing:

Biker jacket from HM
Shirt from Desigual
Skinny jeans from Cubus
Boots from Din Sko

Boden crush

Weeeeeee, my newest boden luuuve!! I managed to snag a return in my size and my days in agony are over, for now at least. ;)

I totally get why this dress is out of stock in all sizes, its perfect in every way. Comfortable, long sleeved (yes please!),  fitted and true to size. :) and not to forget the fabulous pattern/colours, its got my name written all over it. :P I went for regular length, it ends just above my knee which is fine I think.

Here is my chubby, little fighter whos in war with a stray cat. Do you see the bold hairless patch on her tigh? Thats where she got bit but one can hardly see the wound anymore, its healing perfectly.

I hardly ever purchase any garment from Boden at full prize but this time I had no choice, this dress wont make it to clearance/sale, so if you want one you better act fast. ;)

What Im wearing:

Dress from Boden
Tights from Lindex
Shoes (old)

uh oh no Im not the one taking part in a catfight, Im way to chicken for that. :P Do you remember my black bundle of kitty joy? Last week we discovered a nasty wound on her thigh, off to the vet the next day. Apparently she got bit by another cat, I bet she got in a fight with one of the stray cats lurking around, in fact I know so cause today I caught them in the act. I came to her rescue and screamed my lungs out at the stray cat. He ran off the minute he saw me. ;)

Cute kitty alert!! :) My kitty who got injured have been kept indoors all week, happy as a camper on drugs cause she got a nasty infection in the wound. She was out of sorts the first days but now she is back in business. :) She will stay on antibiotics for another 5 days but she is off her painkillers. The wound is healing well too. I have never seen a catbite before let alone an infected one so this was a new experience. Im glad it  wasnt anything more serious although poor kitty was truly in pain. I hope it wont happen again.

Well enough kitty chat, onto outfit related stuff. :) Im so thrilled, got some new bootsies in rust, I love this years autumnal fashion colours. :) The bootsies fit like a glove on my chicken legs, such boots are soooo hard to come by so I couldnt walk away. :) I know this pic is rubbish but never mind my face being washed out, look at my pose instead. :P

Another rubbish pic, but wanted to show you how the bootsies look from the side. :) At least we got SUN! :)

Everything in this outfit is old except the boots. Hmmm I must really like this cardigan, think I have worn it more or less in every outfit lately *ahem*. Its a stripey thing, goes with everything! ;)

Another Boden love of mine sees the light of day. :) I got this in the clearance sale for next to nothing, apparently this particularly pattern didnt sell very well.......hmmm beats me, hehehee.

Most reviewers claimed the pattern to be too loud, huh oh nothing I cant handle I thought to myself *snorts*
So here it is in all its pattern delight. :) Its actually a shirtdress with a full skirt, typical 50s style which I adore. :) However I chose to downplay it for work as you know pattern being kind of in your face, threw on a cardigan for that.

Do I look swamped or? ;)

Doggie Una didnt want to keep me company outdoors. :P She is cute as a button that one, Im melting inside everytime I look at her. :)
