There are two main conclusions I have drawn from these photos – the first, is that I am really not a fan of round glasses. For over a year I have been wearing these, on and off, and I am horrified that it has taken me this long to realise what an absolute twat I look in them. Secondly, that there is a sure fire reason why I spend the majority of my life stinking of fake tan, and that reason is because I am practically transparent without it; and given that I am not anyone’s vision of an ‘English Rose’, there is time to accept what I simply cannot pull off.
For any of you who don’t follow me on Instagram, these photos were taken moments before I jumped in the car to go to my youngest brother’s party. It was a football party, in the sweltering heat, with over ten under 6 year olds, and this is what I opted for – and no, it was not appropriate, and yes, I did regret it. Not only was I sweating under my own layering but I frightened a good 90% of his friends, who had probably never seen such a hybrid of fashion misconceptions. Nonetheless, long sleeved baggy jumpers and shorts are a British Summertime favourite for me – if only I could find the box I packed all my jewellery into to turn myself from drab to fab.
