What I wore today - Grecian and floaty

Hello beauties, hope you've had a good day. Mine has been a bit crazy today! Am awful day at work but then an amazing evening as...I bought a new handbag from Selfridges in the sale! It's extremely exciting and I'll be showing you tomorrow ;)

As i said yesterday I might choose something girly and floaty to wear today so I did! The skirt is actually a dress that I've folded over and twisted around, it looks a bit bunched up around the middle so I put a belt on to try to pull it all together a bit - but I still like it and think it looks quite sweet. My outfit is a bit topshop overload; boots, skirt and necklace - its not deliberate though! Mixing pastel lilac and royal blue is a bit tricky but I wanted to try something different, I've never worn this outfit before and usually try to mix old stuff with new stuff to make sure I wear the clothes in my wardrobe - I'm a big fan of recycling my wardrobe, otherwise I'd spend hundreds on clothes every week which unfortunately just isn't practical :)

The weather is still rather rubbish in the UK, it's not good for fashion choices as you have to consider your outfit for the day and how it'll last/if you'll be warm enough/if it'll keep you dry...very annoying! From what the weatherman said its going to stay wet :( I guess I'll start to plan my autumn/winter wardrobe!

To be honest I don't often plan my outfits for future days, unless I'm feeling inspired of course. It's usually a case of getting ready in the morning and putting on something I feel comfortable and good in, if I'm uncomfortable or not happy with my outfit I'll throw a strop and it will ruin my day! It's unbelievable how much clothes can change your mindset...

Do you try and dress so your comfy as well as looking good?
What's the weather like where you are?

    I'm in California & the weather is cold and windy where I live now. I moved from a super warm and dry part of the state. The recent cold and wind has made it hard for me to know what to wear...I feel out of place wearing pants and sweaters while others around me are wearing shorts and sandals (because they're used to this odd weather).
