Duster Coat - H&M | Tee  - Uniqlo | Denim - Zara | Sneakers - New Balance | Bag  - Mulberry

Dustiest mirror ever! This was not the wisest outfit, socks are a bad idea in this weather. And coats. And grey tees. And heavy eye make up too actually. These before photos are pretty shocking but can you imagine the afters? Not good. On a normal day though this is a super comfy outfit.

How are you? After saying I felt better in my last post I got ill again (totally jinxed myself!) I was ill for ages because of something called labrinthitis, nothing to do with CF at all but just a pesky extra thing which made coping with CF much harder. It's crazy but it seriously put my life on hold and now I'm so behind on a lot of things. But the good news is I get to recover in Lanzarote because I got the go ahead to go on my holibobs, woo! I'm so excited, we're renting a villa with our own pool so I'm gonna buy a big massive rubber ring and float around in it  until it's time to go home. But because I didn't dare prepare in case I couldn't go I am SO unready...I am pale and I only have one swimsuit that fits me (I'm not a bikini gal at all!) But as long as I have all my medicines that's all that really matters!

So this will probably be the last post until then, I might do a post on what I packed to bring with me and a holiday outfits thing when I get back but I'm planning on keeping my packing very minimal! Anyway have a good week and I'll speak to you when I get home.

  4. Wah, have the best hols ever! I've had labrinthitis before - it sucks. :( I'm developing a love for duster jackets, I definitely need a simple, soft looking one like this!

  6. I haven't half missed your blog Josie - going to have a good nosy through your previous posts now and see what I've missed. So sorry to hear you've got labrynthitis - it's where all my illness seems to have stemmed from, ever since I got it 2 and a half years ago. I think I had an unusually extreme case of it - I hope you aren't suffering so much because vertigo is the least fun thing I ever felt! I hope yours clears up in the few weeks they say it should too :) enjoy your holiday as much as you can and be careful not to be alone if you do have vertigo symptoms - the attacks came at any time for me, even in the middle of the night! I think floating around a swimming pool is exactly what the dr ordered, it sounds heavenly! I expect to see many photos of cocktails (even if they're alcohol free ones!!) and sunny views xxx

  23. Glad that you are on the mend and the holiday is still possible. Floating in a ring for a week sounds like it will do you the world of good. I like this outfit the black
    top so if it rains or the weather suddenly turns you don't freeze. The trainers are a lovely colour for summer Lucy x

  30. I love these shots, they are so artsy! Lookin' super gorgeous as always Josie! <3

    Love that your outfit isn't too summery; there's nothing better than mixing seasonal dressing in my eyes, makes such a refreshing change. Am so sorry to hear you've been ill, you poor thing! So delighted you're off on your hols, bloody well deserved! Lanzarote sounds divine, as does a villa! It may sound sad but one of the best holidays I remember from childhood was just chilling by the pool, reading and spending time at a villa in France! SO glad it's not just me that hates bikini's, I just don't feel they suit me at all haha :)

    Hope you enjoy every moment lovely, have a fabulous time xo

    Hooray you're going on holidays! Whoooo! You definitely need to get one of those donut shaped and designed floaties, they're pretty cute with their sprinkles and all. They'd make pale skin look pretty rad too you know. Or so I've been told...

  44. I love a day outfit with these kind of trainers - no idea why! I just find it so cool and effortless, especially since I don't see those style of trainers so much anymore (could just be I haven't paid much attention on the streets!)
