OOTD| Denim + Boucle


For me denim and the words: weekend, freedom and relaxation are synonymous so I tend to gravitate towards the denim contents of my wardrobe when I'm not in work mode. This faux-denim-jersey-peplum dress - an oldie from George at Asda -was worn a few weekends ago for a cosy evening of food with friends. 
My weekends these days are pretty low-key compared to what they looked like a few years back. The thought of club hopping and binge drinking makes my soul shiver a little; good food, great company, the board game Articulate and a bottle or two of Californian White Zinfandel is as wild as it gets for me these days. And I prefer it this way. 
In keeping with the whole 'recycling my wardrobe' thing I seem to be on at the moment, I've rediscovered my love for my Nike wedged trainers (which were dashed aside a few months ago in favour of my red Converses and Vans). I'm fully aware that no one 'does' wedged trainers anymore apart from me, however I'm fully at peace with this and long may they live through me! The added boucle bomber jacket to this effortless ensemble was a sale purchase from H&M. To be honest I hated this jacket when it arrived but was too lazy to return it and became stuck with it. Nevertheless, it's a good lightweight and semi-smart layer up for the autumn.

Despite copious amounts of Lemsip and what seems like bed arrest this weekend, I'm still flu-ey as f**k! Work today was a write off and the thought of dragging my behind in tomorrow fills me with despair. But it's got to be done!
I hope you've had a better start to the week than I have. 
Whatever the case, I suppose it can only get better. Right?!
