Hi! How are you? It feels like ages since I last blogged but it was only just over a week ago really. This outfit was from aggggges ago but it's one I've been wearing a bit recently when I haven't been stuck in pyjamas. It's definitely more than a bit inspired by one of my favourite ever tumblrs, Death By Elocution...I recommend you go check it out, the girl who runs it has the best style. Tomboyish and current but not so trendy that the looks are irrelevant after a month...classic enough to mean that you can get inspiration scrolling through months of posts (um, not that I do that...ahem.)

Anyway the reason I haven't been so active lately on my blog (LOL I say this like people have noticed!) or in real life for that matter is that I was hit with some mystery illness. Not CF related and actually not so much a mystery any more as I think it is this ear thing that's going around. I've just been permanently dizzy for weeks and then the IVs I was on made it 10x worse so I got very sick and had to stop them early. Even though it's not CF related it still affects it because I've been too ill to eat or do proper physio so I've lost a lot of weight and my lungs are feeling rubbish which sucks a bit because I was doing quite well. I'm feeling a little better now, I have to have some tests at the hospital tomorrow (who invented 9am appointments? And how lazy does that make me sound?) and I hope they're ok because if not I'm not allowed to go on holiday next week! So I'm crossing all my fingers and toes.

It's also meant my Etsy had to take a bit of a backseat which is annoying because I had lots of plans! I haven't been able to add the new stock I wanted yet but I did add free UK delivery (hollaaaa!) so check it out here

Hope you're well!

  7. I'm glad to hear you're feeling a little better now, I hope the improvement continues! I feel you on the 9AM appointment though. It takes me so long for my mind to wake up after my body, so early appointments mean fingers crossed the coffee kicks in so I can take in what they're saying to me without being all groggy! Loving the outfit, I've been reaching for similarly casual pieces lately. When I'm out of my PJs I just grab trousers + a top without even thinking about it much.

  29. Hi Josie! I'm glad you're feeling better. I had no idea there was an ear bug going around! I kept checking your blog from now and then and I had noticed you weren't blogging but yes, I sort of figured you might have felt poorly! :(

    The outfit is great as usual :) and thank you so much for replying the camera question! It's exactly the same model I'm going to get!! I guess I will - your pics are always great quality xxx

  32. Cute outfit! Love the lippy too, really brings it together. That sucks you still feel ill, hopefully if you've figured out what it is shouldn't be too hard to sort? Anything to do with ears always sucks xx

  42. very cool outfit! I love how lightweight it is and super comfy. I do think I need alike for me.
    good to hear you're fine now and in some point it was good you didn't disappear due to CF

    ReplyDelete
  43. Oh no, you got the dizzyness :( I hope it's a bit better now, did they give you anti sickness tablets? This is going to sound so weird but the only position I could kind of sit in was face forward on the pillow with the rest of my body in a kneeling position behind me - it might help a bit if you're dizzy at bed time (or any time as it happens with this rubbish illness). Still looking very gorgeous though Josie, I didn't even make it out of PJs most days for agesss! I love those trousers, I have a thing about smart trousers right now and you've managed to pull them off in a more casual daytime look - I can only ever seem to make them look work-like! Definitely need to invest in a plain grey tee :) feel better soon and make the most of the R+R on holiday! xxx

  44. Really hope you got on okay at your appointment Josie. You look lovely as always!

  48. I love this outfit so much. You really have basics down to an art form! Your blog is really fantastic. I can see myself in pretty much all of your outfits. Hah
    Looking through your blog makes me really impressed by how neat your room is though... I am so messy when it comes to my room! I suppose posting photos on the internet is a good incentive to keep your room clean though... haha

  49. Just had to comment on how great you look here, seeing you in those (cigarette?) trousers has made me want to buy them purely to emulate this look <3
