Unpretty



"You can buy your hair if it won't grow
You can fix your nose if he says so
You can buy all the make up 
That M.A.C. can make
But if you can't look inside you
Find out who am I too
Be in the position to make me feel 
So damn unpretty
I'll make you feel unpretty too"

This post's TUNE comes from TLC.  Anybody else remeber this song, you can thank me all later for this one, I know it's amazing.  I can't say I'm TLC's biggest fan, all I've ever heard from them has been what I've heard off of the radio or when I used to watch music channels religiously back in the day, but what I do know is that this song is just so so good that I could not have it as one of my TUNE's.  I think it's the message of this song that really makes it strike a chord with me.  I'm 27 now, I give less of a damn now about what people tink of me than I ever have before, I'm willing to embrace my weird quirky little details and mannerisms, but when your younger this is alot harder to do.  I know there are alot of bloggers who are quite young, so what I'm saying to you lot is, just be who you are, don't worry about what other people think, everyone has differing opinions and you're never gonna keep everyone happy, so just do things for you.  I've said my piece.  If you would like to listen to this song and see what I'm banging on about, you can do so here.

Anywho....





 


Dungarees: H&M (£24.99)
Shirt: New Look (£12.99)
Shoes: Primark (old)
Jacket: Primark (old)
Satchel: Camden Market (old)
Watch: Urban Outfitters (old)

I bought these dungarees a few weeks ago and have been patiently waiting to find the right outfit to wear them with, and on a remarkably sunny and relatively warm day this year I stuck them on with my little jacket.

When I found these little beauties in H&M and I was beyond excited just looking at them, but then I put them on and I fell head over heels in love with them.  They fit like a dream, infact they couldn't be any more perfect if they had been tailored for me.  It's fair to say that they are my new favourite thing.

I added my new white shirt, a proper staple in any wardrobe I feel, perfect for under a preffy dress, slip or with a lovely fitting pair of jeans... class!  Combine this with my little jacket which I didn't think I would get the chance to wear again until summer and stuck on my green ballet pumps.

Now, I'm all about staying warm, as I said this happened to be a unseasonally sunny warm day, but normally I am wrapped up and lovely and toasty, but I am on a mission to continue wearing what I want but keep warm, I'll let you know how that one goes... I'm definitely thinking layers are the way forward.

So yup, I do love my new dungarees, I just need to find a proper coat now that they look just right with, I'm sure I'll find one, if not I shall just have to freeze my tits off this winter but at leats I'll do it looking good in ma good old dungarees :)

p.s. I edit all my pics with PicMonkey.

Peace and Love,

  4. Hello there! I came across with the idea lately that has the same thought, yes when we are younger we deal with shallow things too deep and when we grew older, we perceive those things as nonsense already, and laugh about it sometimes.<3 This is such a good post.

  5. Very cute outfit on you! I have dungarees but they are mens baggy ones I use for working in the garden, whilst having fantasies that I actually look like a Land Girl!

    Anyway, I'm newish to your blog, and I know you've already had the Liebster award or are far too popular to consider such trifles, but I mentioned you in my post here as worthy of another one:

  7. Love the song/lyrics.. so true! sadly, we live in a society, that now more than when I was a child/teenager, girls feel 'under pressure' to look/be a certain way...
    Like yourself, now 29, I don't care, I get up for me, I dress for me, do my hair for me.. and I have people around me that love/like me for me and that makes me happy. :)
    Love the dungarees.. I wanted a pair, but never got round to trying any on, you may have re swayed me.lol
