Well behaved women rarely make history

(Jumper: Pixie Market, Tutu Skirt: ASOS, shorts under: Stylestalker) #teenvogue

What better way to spend an afternoon by battling the fading sun in a tutu skirt that defies gravity and many other rules of nature. I mean obviously this skirt is great. Maybe the best thing since bread came sliced, but there are things to bare in mind. One, storage- my wardrobe is full, even if it wasn't though, fitting this guy in would be interesting. It is currently sassing it up on my dress mannequin, preventing me from getting within a meter of it. Two- it is sheer!? Why? I guess the idea is to wear it under things, but really. Three- It is so large, sitting down, and general movement become restricted. Fear of knocking everything over to the fear of actually being eaten alive by the thing are both very real realities. Oh well, long may my love affair continue. I said I liked a skirt that was good for spinning, maybe that is me done for the year.

With love from Emma,

Placid as I melt into the sea

(Leopard Trousers: H&M Trend, Wide brimmed hat: H&M Trend, Strappy top: ASOS, Shoes: DIY, Fur Stole: H&M) #teenvogue

Little heavy on the H&M trend there girl. I openly admit that it is my favourite high-street store (ASOS for online). In case you hadn't noticed. I don't wear trousers. Personally, and I am not saying this in order for someone to attempt to change my mind, I find them unflattering on my personal body shape. My child bearing hips can be hidden in a hoop skirt, not in the dreaded jeans! Anyway, moving away from my insecurities. I couldn't pass up these trousers, as is the case with anything from H&M trend these look so much more expensive than they were. The leopard print is raised and adds a bit of texture and uniqueness to them and they are actually comfy. This is something I rarely find with trousers.

Oh the sky is blue forever

Dressing like a jellyfish at the beach is a bit of  a given for me. I have a vague obsession with Jellyfish, they are truly beautiful. As you can see they feature heavily on my tumblr stream. 

Also couldn't resist dragging these plaid trou's out for another spin this winter (although I did wear them all of summer as well). They are the perfect plaid pants, not tacky, good fit and comfy, after I do some post-wash-jean-lunges, I can actually breathe.

Slowly we unfurl as lotus flowers

(Black chevron floral dress: Kate Moss for Topshop, Fur Stole: H&M, Lace up boots: Office, Purse: Mulberry, Ladybirds: Natures own) #teenvogue

Well someone needs a lint roller, or less than 5 cats?

In other news I love dark florals for the winter. I really do. This dress is a Kate Moss for Topshop one I got a year ago still complete with the original tags which I thought was pretty impressive. Now, I quite enjoy this tea dress, bows galore. It is also well made for a Topshop dress- backhanded compliment. What else constitutes a autumn outfit for me? A fur stole, bare legs and boots which cut outs in the toes. I will never dress practically, if you think I will maybe one day you might as well leave now and save yourself some time. However, I am buying tights this weekend, after the snow I think it is time. Sadly.

Get get get in line, and settle down

(Plaid Cardigan: Alexander Wang, Slip dress: Zara, Shoes: DIY, stone necklace: etsy) #teenvogue

An ode to the ultimate plaid princess: Miss Gwen Stefani. I feel a lingerie slip matched with an over sized plaid cardigan would meet her approval.

This picture actually looks like I am dancing to above said Gwen song. But I can't dance so this is mis-representative as a sassy grindy kind of dance- I hate myself.

Out into the grey streets

 (Textured skirt: H&M Trend (red here), textured blouse: New Look, M Belt: Maison and Scotch (here), wedges: Topshop Unique, Purse: Mulberry) #teenvogue

Yes, I know what you are thinking, I do have this skirt in red. But this one is lilac. Pastels, just because. Managed to find the creepiest ally in Glasgow for these, across from the river- got starred at by some builders, in fact they closed a gate after they saw me stumble up in these shoes. Maybe they get lots of bloggers parading around in their place of work in unsuitable footwear. Rude. However, the creepiest ally turned into a pretty sweet one! I love you too Glasgow.

It's been a while since I did an old invert, so I had a revival and look what happened to this one? It's better than making shapes out of clouds!! Bunny got sass.

I've been sleepwalking down to the lake

(Skirt: H&M trend, Striped top: River Island, Cross necklace: Topshop, Leather bag: Zara, Heels: & other stories, fur tail: Etsy) #teenvogue

I fell in love with a white version of this skirt last seen here. I seriously wear it all the time. So when I saw a purple version of it I jumped on it. Although, I was disappointed, the white one was a perfect length (and I mean perfect!), this one is just plain dowdy. As a result I've not touched it since I got it in the summer. But I saw it there and thought I'd embrace the awkward length thing it has going on. I don't mind it like this, paired with some mega trampy shoes and a crop top, but as soon as I have a weekend this baby is getting shortened.

Sorry for the lack of updates- insert generic busy at work comment-
