Call off your storm

I realise that this outfit probably isn't going to set the world on fire or scoop any fashion awards but it's a comfy ensemble I've been wearing a lot over the last few weeks and features two of my new favourite things, both from ASOS -  my ombré skinnies and my quilted t-shirt.  I was super impressed when these jeans came as all of the other skinnies I own are quite thin material and almost quite jeggings-y but these feel like proper thick 'jeans'.  To be honest I think ASOS have really upped their game over the last few months as the quality of their own-brand offerings seems to have really improved - has anyone else noticed this? I am a little embarrassed to admit that when I was looking back through my orders to find a link to these items I had to go back quite a way, I've made six orders in the last month, um... ooops!

This weekend we're going down to Weymouth for Wessex Food Festival.  We're also going out for lunch on Sunday with some of Tom's family which will be lovely, but both elements of the weekend bring challenges as I'm currently trying to combat my weight loss plateau by low-carbing - basically I'm allowed 40g of carbohydrates a day which is not very much. Luckily, for the sacrifice, I am seeing some good results and have got below the same three numbers I have seen on the scales for the last few months, but I am getting pretty sick of chicken and I am craving Dairy Milk like you wouldn't believe.  I had a dream I accidentally ate a biscuit and freaked out the other day, bit much! If any others of you out there use MyFitnessPal for tracking food and exercise and fancy adding me I am 'rosietap' on there.

This week has flown by in a whirlwind of lovely social engagements - seeing a friend who is about to have a baby and getting excited about children's books (I bought the little girl she already has Each Peach Pear Plum, did anyone else read that as a child?) as well as going for dinner in a lovely country pub on Thursday night - steak and eggs being on the menu was a lucky inclusion for this hungry dieter!

As you can see from the outfit above and the million times I've mentioned it on here, I'm definitely embracing the jeans at the weekends at the moment but I've also been trying to bring some pretty dresses out of the wardrobe - this one was kindly given to me by Char and was worn to work on Wednesday, teamed with my new favourite New Look cutout boots and a chunky black cardigan.


Hope you've all had a lovely Saturday so far (jealous of those of you who have only just got up, haven't had a lie in in ages!) I have just come back from the Bournemouth Park Run and am about to tuck into a big brekkie and then take these achy legs away for the weekend.  Despite the bad forecast it is beautiful sunshine here so hope you have some where you are too.

  1. Sounds like a very busy but promising week that just continues into the weekend. Love both the jeans and the dress. Sadly I'm looking at a wrath of dark clouds outside, so it's not so nice here. Have fun at the food festival!

  4. I loved 'Each peach pear plum' I once recited it for my Halloween guiser 'joke' and can still recite it now word for word. I am one cool kid! Also really like the quilted t-shirt. x

  5. I love those jeans and the top. The dress is also very lovely.
    Good luck on your low carb diet, the diary milk craving will pass! I've started SW and can't believe that I haven't had chocolate for two weeks and am not missing it. Recovered chocaholic maybe, or maybe too soon for such a big claim! x

  10. That dress is adorable. I LOVED Each Peach Pear Plum as a child. Alan Ahlberg is a literary genius and Janet was such a talented illustrator. xxx

  11. I love your stripey jacket, and you look so adorable in that dress, it's gorgeous!! Low carbing sounds stressful, but if it's working for you then good stuff!! I like the idea of keeping a food diary, but think it could send me into a tailspin of being overly pre-occupied with what I'm eating. Gah! Hope you had a lovely weekend sweet pea. xx

  13. Bought this jacket and it was delivered the next day. Fits perfectly, is a great color. Doesn't bleed onto my clothes even though I've never washed it. Perfect for college campus wear. i would recommend Harvard Square HS220 Nylon Storm Jacket
