Blog, ootd

Ahhh I went to see Rachel Tucker!! I’ve never actually managed to see her in any role so I figured I’d have to take seeing her in her own solo show and it was phenomenal. So, as I was going to see Tucker and as I knew I had the following 5 days in uniform, I figured I’d make an effort of sorts.

Crucially, I organised my wardrobe in the day on Monday. Don’t get me wrong, it’s still kind of messy to anybody else, I guess. But it makes sense to me and it’s long overdue (we moved into this house in September and it’s the first time there’s been any kind of order to my wardrobe.)

So, organising my wardrobe meant I laid hands again on my Billabong skirt, which is still one of my favourite items ever. I don’t wear it anywhere near often enough so it was time to pull it out and in order to really showcase it, I paired it with the plainest possible item, a black long-sleeved tee. I ended up really enjoying this outfit and almost not feeling entirely out of place in the ludicrously fancy venue.

I am obviously still working on my remarkably awkward poses and would probably be feeling a lot better if everything I posted wasn’t a mirror selfie but hey ho. Lighting is pretty bad in both of these but overall I had an amazing evening and felt great in this outfit, it’s definitely one I’ll be bringing out again.

See you soon!

hello again!

Blog, Uncategorized

I’m getting back into this again soon, I promise. It’s been crazy. I wore some cute outfits in Scotland a few weeks ago but always had a coat/scarf/twelve protective layers on and forgot to photograph ANY of them.

In the meantime, I’ve used my tumblr to give a little more info on some of the stuff posted in my huge “two years of outfits in one post” post. You can check that out here and I’ll see you again very soon.

Love.

ETA: pictured below is my work uniform, the real reason I don’t have anything interesting to post at the moment. Ignore the mess and awkward pose. Not pictured: the fetching company fleece that accompanies this when the store is freezing which is always. 

January 2016

Blog

So… it’s been a while, huh? (She asks to the void.) Okay, yes, I lost touch with this blog. I won’t make excuses or tell you life got in the way. I started procrastinating in other ways, I suppose, and suddenly taking posting pictures of my outfits and talking about them to nobody in particular became a lot less interesting to me. But now, I see the error of my ways. I suppose largely because I now wear a uniform at least 5 days out of 7 and miss having the freedom to wear, let alone talk about, my own clothes. So, I’ve scrolled through my phone and found a selection of some of my favourite ootd pictures. I’ll present them without context, because it’s going to be long enough as it is. But here goes: the last two-ish years of my life in poor mirror selfies and pictures that are, ideally, supposed to showcase ONE particular item.

A few of my overall favourite items here are the white rose shirt in the top right hand corner (from H&M, of course), the geo print trousers on the second row (from… H&M) and the black and white check trousers (not from H&M! From Primark!!)

I’m going to try and get back at this for real, I truly am. So, see you soon… hopefully.

January 23rd: lots of new things! (Again!)

Blog

Once more, it’s been far too long. I’m getting really bad at this, I apologise. New goal is to post at least one outfit a week, or maybe try to post an end-of-week round-up. I literally have a seven-day week between Uni and work right now, and that’s without taking a social life (and TV…) into consideration. So I am always busy but, hey, I’m always dressed so I have no excuse.

As the blog title suggests, I have more new clothes to show off! Don’t remind me of the times I said I was stopping, please. In all honesty, I only paid full price for one of the items I’m about to share so I’m letting myself believe that’s okay!

First on the agenda is this cute leopard print skirt I got from Forever 21 in their January sale. I love this skirt. It is so comfortable and so cute and just the perfect level of tacky-fab, which is my absolute favourite way to dress at the moment.

I move on, then, to this velvet dress that arrived today. It’s a New Look dress that I grabbed on eBay and it is super cute but also, importantly, soooo comfortable and warm and it makes me happy. I feel like I can really dress this up or down depending on what I choose to do with it and I’m pretty much in love with it already.

Next up is this amazing dress from BoohooPlus. I saw a post about this dress from art-i-ficial and I’m obviously not rocking it as well as she does, but this dress is such a winner and comes recommended for sure. (Bonus picture for this one so you can see how cute the neck actually is!) I can’t wait to play around a little with my accessories on this one and see the directions I can take it in. Shoutout to that spot on my lens that managed to make it look like I have a huge white stain in the middle of the dress… sigh.

And last but most definitely not least, a three-in-one extravaganza of new items. For Christmas, my sister gave me a Topshop gift card and I managed to grab this jacket and the skirt, both of which I love! The skirt still feels like a length I’m not used to, so I’m working with it, but I’ve been wearing the jacket non-stop, and I’m looking to get a few patches for it so I’ll probably be wearing it even more when that happens. Also pictured is a top from Forever 21 that is a little shorter than I’d like it to be but is still really cute as hell and surprisingly comfortable.

And that’s all for now! Like I said, posting more here is definitely on the agenda and once I’ve settled into my new routines it’ll be happening for sure!

December 11th, 2014 – another new purchase.

Blog, ootd

I made a couple of new purchases today, actually. (Remember when I said I was stopping? Ha!) But, as one of those purchase was just a pair of ordinary jeans – my beloved blue jeans are finally ripped to the point I can no longer wear them and I’m heartbroken – and another was a pair of leggings, I didn’t think they were really worth writing about. I know I wrote about a plain green t-shirt the other day but apparently I’ve changed the rules.

Anyway, today I bought these leopard print faux fur boot cuffs and I am in love. I saw them the other day but thought it was probably a bit silly to buy them, but when I had to venture into H&M again today I couldn’t resist. They are so cute and they team so perfectly with my Docs!

I decided to wear them out today after I bought them. Just onto campus but I thought it was far enough to test out how comfortable I feel wearing them in public and also how warm they are. Successful on both fronts! They are super cosy and warm and also I love the way they look so didn’t feel self conscious at all.

I am in love and I am tacky fabulous.

26th November, 2014 – update

Blog

Hey there guys!

So sorry I’ve been awful at posting lately. I started a new job and I’ve had a lot of deadlines lately so not only have I been super busy but I’ve also not worn a single remotely interesting outfit. I’m trying to get back on track though!

I bought this coat last week from ASOS and I really love it. It’s cute and it’s warm and it’s pretty much exactly what I was looking for. I still sorta wish I’d bought the mustard one, but I know that this colour is much better for me so I should stop whining.

Next up on my list is to buy more sweatshirts or cardigans or just layers, really. I own a lot of tshirts but as it gets colder I really need to get thicker clothing. I’m mostly eBay searching for these because, y’know, I’m poor. I’ll be sure to post if I find anything I really like.

And along similar lines, I’m looking to get involved in some clothes swaps maybe? I have a lot of stuff that I don’t wear anymore and a lot of it is lovely and in great condition, so I’d love to give it away to someone who will actually get wear out of it. I’ve been doing some online searching for swaps but I was wondering if any of you guys know of any regular ones? I’m in London, South West and obviously, the closer to home the better but I can travel around most of the city. I was considering maybe trying to set one up at my Uni so if anyone has any experience or advice in running a swap, that would also be much appreciated!

I’ll hopefully be posting here a little more regularly in the upcoming weeks, so until next time!

Intro post!

Blog, Intro post

Hey guys, Rory here!

I started uninterestingootd about a month ago, and it really is/was more for myself than anything else. I’ve always been very self-conscious and feel that I’ve cornered myself into dressing the same way day in, day out. I felt like I wanted to try more things out, wear more dresses, buy things I wouldn’t usually buy. But I also wanted to remind myself that sometimes it is totally fine for me just wear a t-shirt and jeans and that unremarkable doesn’t necessarily mean boring. I can still look and feel cute even if my outfit isn’t anything special. And that’s how uninterestingootd was born. Sometimes I’ll post a picture of a cute dress and sometimes I’ll post pictures of me in jeans feeling lazy. But if I post, it’s because I felt happy and comfortable in that outfit at that moment, so please be respectful in any comments you may make. This blog is as much about my self-confidence as it is the clothes I’m wearing!

I’m still keeping the tumblr open and posting on there a little bit, and I’ll probably keep the askbox open if anybody does want to speak to me about anything at all.

As well as ootd posts I may also post questions or polls, ask you guys for advice or sometimes just do a blog post or two.

Thanks for reading, and all posts up to the beginning of November can be found here 🙂
