OUTFIT: The Native American


Isn't it just typical? It's been the worst summer in years, nay, ever, and when the sun finally decides to show up two things happen. Firstly it's Ramadan, so making the most of the sun is pretty much out the window, and secondly I've had tonsilitis for more than a week, so making the most out of the sun is definitely out the window.

I must accept my share of the blame though, I have an irritating habit of not finishing off my courses of penicillin. So when the tonsilitis abated a little, I stopped taking it and hey presto. It was back, with a vengeance.

I was tidying up my cardigan hooks in the bedroom when I (re)discovered one that I had completely forgotten about, buried beneath 5 or 6 others. I have to say, I am ashamed of my bedroom, I imagine that Oxfam's clothes sorting depot is more organised, and probably with less clothes too. I think I need 3 wardrobes to be ok, for now...

I think the cardy is a bit Native American, with a cape style and some retro shades. And it got me myself feeling a bit native, prompting me to dig out a beaded kaftan I purchased in the backstreets of Pokhara, Nepal (Google it, it's beautiful). I tucked that into my trusty bodycon skirt, and wrapped my shiny black ASOS belt around it.

To finish it all off, I stuck on a diamante encrusted feather headband I snapped up in the Winter Topshop Sale.

What with being so annoyingly ill all the time, I've been pretty much house-ridden. To keep boredom at bay, I've downloaded the Nyan Cat game on the iPad. If you've ever seen the Nyan Cat video (if not, where have you been?!) it's a bit like that. I get seriously competitive on any type of game and must win at all costs.

Now, if you'll excuse me, I'm off to swoop me some milk, cake and gold coins. 

Goodbye Life.
