Forever Mono And A Break.

16th June 2017crelgey

It’s official. Even in Summer I’m a monochrome lover. Granted I maybe don’t look very summery to the average person, but I feel it. Especially in this white strappy cami. If you’ve read my rambling before on outfits, you may remember me saying previously that I wasn’t sure on v-neck tops, as I feel they make me look more broad shouldered than I am. But. I take that back. Because that isn’t the case with this cami top. It may be because it’s a cami over a t-shirt, but I love it.

Leather Jacket – Topshop (old) // Tie strap cami – New Look // Check Shirt – H&M (sold out) // Bralet – Primark // Jeans – Next (old) // Heels – Zara (old) // Clutch – Whistles // Sunglasses – ASOS

Away from outfit talk, I’ve been feeling all kinds of lost, stretched, unorganised, rushed, and uneasy the last couple of weeks. I feel completely out of routine and control and, well, it’s not nice. It’s all mainly my own doing, but at the same time, I don’t know why or how it’s happened. I have taken on some new work. I’ve been on a couple of days of a training course for work work and on top of that, I thought it was a great idea to start stripping the living room walls as I’m sick of it being put off to start re-doing the room. PLUS, all kinds of meetings, induction days and leaving events have been happening for our toddler as he finishes preschool in 6 weeks, ready for ‘big’ school in September. AND my Fitbit strap broke. I haven’t had it on for two weeks and I feel completely lost. Plus, not that I’m blaming it, but I’ve also put on the 3lbs I lost! – Wow, this post is going to get rambley.


I may have a break. Just to get myself re-centered. The things in my head on paper – Somewhere collective rather than in three different notebooks or post-it notes. I have no more or fewer hours than anyone else in their day. I need to learn to optimise what I have. I have a little more on my plate than I did a couple of months ago, I just need to find a new day-to-day plan. It’s perfectly OK, as things/lives/situations change. It’s called evolving. Hopefully, I’ll get some new content ideas and brush the husband upon his recording skills. Though he’s not doing a bad job so far. I’ll still be on social, so don’t forget about me!

    I love the outfit – I’m often rocking monochrome in Summer as well.
    You sound very busy at the moment – I hope your break has the desired effect 🙂

      Thank you Tori. I think a bit of mono is fine. I could never wear full black though. I am, but currently getting there, thank you. 🙂 x

    Love this outfit Caroline! I’m a big fan of all-black, and that doesn’t change in the summer either ha. And good luck with your break. I know what you mean about feeling lost, sounds like you have had a very hectic few weeks!

      Thank you Lauren. It’s been a tad busy. I think it’s more having a lot of loose ends/little things that I may have put of, or that just need sorting, but by the by, I’ll get all done and get myself a new routine. I’m all about routine.x

    I’m forever going to be a monochrome girl 🙂 Nothing wrong with that at all. Love the bra you’re wearing underneath. Wish I could wear similar but the bust is too big… I hear you about feeling a bit lost, it happens and if the blog has to take a step back because of it, that’s ok x

      It sounds like a lot of people are. I just don’t wear colour that well like some and I’m Ok with that. Aw, I love them. They suit my near fried I’m looking forward to the break/no pressure and just finding my way actually. This is a hobby and I have to remember that.x
