Fish out of Water

If you think about it, its funny that you rarely see Bloggers posting pictures of them sitting on their beds or at their desk, their main accessories not an Alexander Wang-a-like bag or a pair of Jimmy Choo stilhettos – but a laptop. You wouldn’t see a penguin catching some rays in the desert, an octopus hanging out of a tree in the rain forest, or a camel marching down Oxford Street in a pair of patent loafers… (or so I’d hope anyway!) so its only fair that every once in a while you get to see a blogger in their natural habitat, too!

This is my new bedroom at Uni, which I actually really love; its spacious, airy and light! I’m having internal battles at the moment as to whether or not to decorate it up a bit or not… obviously, since I’m only renting, I can’t paint the walls or anything; but I want to pretty it up in a way which won’t leave it feeling too ‘busy’ – any kind of clutter makes my head spin! So for now I’m going to leave it, until I have a brainwave… so if anyone has any ideas for some crafty DIY decorations I could make cheaply, please let me know! Perhaps some bunting would look nice? What do you think?

I’ve noticed that my posts are getting longer and longer, and whilst I enjoy writing endless ramblings I don’t know what the rest of you think, haha. So I’m going to leave it here and just show you a few pictures from the Miu Miu 2008 RTW collection, which is the collection I believe my highstreet dress was inspired by, and a collection I very much love 2 years on! I also noticed, when looking back at the pictures for this post, how matchy-matchy this outfit is… unintentionally I might add. Soo much navy blue, and my handbag and I seem to be wearing matching scarves… hmmm. I find this quite ironic since I wouldn’t wear my brown brogues yesterday incase they matched too much with my brown shirt! Ohh I despair, haha : )

I would love the first dress here, the skirt is perfectly ruffly, and kind of reminiscent again of clowns with the white, red and navy blue colour palette! Some good ‘clown colours’ there… haha. Pretty sure I’m just making things up now, but hey! Also, there’s nothing wrong, in my opinion, with being inspired by past collections – If you’d like to check this one out in full, you can see it here!

  1. Hello, I’ve been following your blog quietly for a while. I just wanted to say that I really enjoy the ‘rambling’ posts! I love reading about little, interesting, quirky asides. It adds a real ‘human’ aspect to to the work. I like your ‘down to earth’ writing style. It’s great!


  2. I love the photos Katie! Natural and beautiful πŸ™‚
    And your skirt is amazing… I love the colors!
    About your new room…I’m having the same problem. I decided to keep mine very simple, just added some vintage details and photo collages on the walls.
    Once it’s ready I’ll show some photos on my blog πŸ˜‰



  3. This post was really fun to read, I loved all your little analogies and I totally agree! I know I for one attempt to make my life look more interesting than sitting on a computer for half my day, so maybe it’s just the fantasy of getting dressed up and going somewhere to take pictures?

    Your room looks lovely, I like the white walls. I think some bunting would look delightful and it’s so easy to make.

    Cute dress too!
