OOTD: Breaking bad habits and hair woe

 Jumper - £6 - Primark, Belt - £1 - Primark, Necklace - H&M - forever ago, T-shirt - H&M - also forever ago, Skirt - Topshop - £20, Boots - New Look - £22, Ring - Gran's Eternity Ring, Bracelet - Christmas from Boyfriend

My hair is currently going through a period of being - not terrible. This never happens. It's kind of in that weird stage between growing and full blown mane - which means I promptly need to find a good hairdresser. The madness has already begun as it begins to turn my entire hair in to one giant blonde knot (usually between where my natural hair colour ends and the bleached death begins.) If anyone can hit a sister up with an affordable hairdresser I can trust in the city centre I would be much obliged. I was utterly distraught when my guy left.

As part of my new year I've resolved to actually wearing the clothes that I own and only buying things that I utterly love. I have purged my wardrobe and still never seem to have anything to wear. Which is stupid because clearly I have all the things - I just need to actually wear them. Obviously the things that survived the purge were kept for a reason, i just need to get round to wearing them. I've had this necklace since forever and never really worn it as it never really fell in to my usual of "must be gold and chunky" but I loved it and was in a buy one get one free or something of the likes. Helps that it matched my lipstick (total accident promise.) This outfit was just something put on to go pick up my Abi. She'd just got her knees tattooed and wanted me to come collect her for a night of dinner and films (prawn,chilli and lime risotto and Phantom of The Opera since you asked.) I'm not usually one for belts over jumpers (and I'm still not convinced) but it is Glasgow and it is cold and quite frankly it looked better than this guy just hanging loose (plus I love this jumper hard.)

Surely I'm not the only one guilty of clothes hoarding?

  1. I like your resolution about clothes! I wish I could also make the most of my existing wardrobe - I must only wear 10-15% of it on constant rotation, while the rest never sees the light of day!

  2. Totally in love with this outfit. Lush!

    Also, if I were you I'd let your hair grow out. Will look ~funky~ for a while but ultimately healthier for it! Anddd.... I think the dyed/natural mix looks good on you!

  3. Love the jumper, and I think the belt looks cute actually! The necklace is great with this outfit, I'm trying to make a rule that of there's anything in my wardrobe that's not been worn between now and April for any reason other than the weather then it needs to go, so we'll see how it goes :L

  7. Aveda's James Dun's House in Glasgow is a really great place to get your hair done. It can be expensive but they give new clients 50% off so it defo won't break the bank first time round and they are really excellent with hair. Best hairdressers I have visited in the city x

  9. Hair wise I use Martin at the Rainbow Room in Royal Exchange Square, he's really good and he listens to what you want and won't do anything crazy unless he's sure you really want it. I tend to go in, tell him how much work I am willing to put into keeping my hair styled and looking good and then let him do what he likes and it's always gone really well. If you're looking for colour too then Gallacher, same salon, is very good. Both of them are very reasonable considering their skill level.
