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!

New jeans! New jeans! This is so exciting. If you’ve read my old posts you’ll know that I hate my current jeans. The jeans themselves are fine but they don’t fit me right and they were a very poor purchase and I have no excuse because I tried them on and everything, knew they were wrong but bought them because I wanted to give up on my search. Anyway, because I hate those jeans, I’m buying a lot of new trousers at the moment as replacements. I already posted about my new Gap cords, which are amazing; and unfortunately I posted the eBay link for the Yours jeans I love but are absolutely not the size they claim to be. As the Yours jeans didn’t work out, I was on the hunt for something new (and preferably in a sale somewhere.) Well, I found them!

2014-11-07-1

They’re from ASOS, they were in the sale (still a little more than I wanted to spend at £16 but I really can’t complain) and I love them! I never would’ve bought this colour before, but after my artRAVE outfit, which featured dungarees of a similar colour, I felt confident enough to go for it and I’m really glad I did. They’re high-waisted, which is another thing I felt unsure about but I decided to just go for it anyway. They’re so cute, surprisingly comfortable, and I’m just so happy with them!

2014-11-07

I decided to keep everything else pretty dark for their first outing into the world (apart from, obviously, the gold Docs) so I teamed them with the trusty Select shirt from so many years ago I’ve lost count and my Lady Gaga shirt. Also worn with the chunky Gap cardigan I’ve posted about before, because it’s cold out there but I’m still refusing to get my coat out just yet!

Today’s outfit, much like the last two I posted, is really, really boring. I’ve done nothing today but sit at home and eat biscuits, so I didn’t need to be wearing anything special for that. However, I do love the shirt I have on today and I do feel kinda cute so I’m posting it anyway.

(I get really bored of these poses I do so I went a little bit superhero today)

Today’s outfit is my ripped jeans from Primark, which I’ve had for years, a Topshop hoodie I got for Christmas a few years ago, and my Allison Weiss shirt! It’s a great lazy day outfit but also a pretty good gig outfit/I want to feel like I could kick someone’s ass but I don’t want to put any effort into my look outfit.

October 28th, November 4th

Okay… some outfits are just too boring to be given their own posts. Here are two of those. I’m documenting them as part of my reminder to myself that it’s okay to be boring sometimes, as long as I don’t make too much of a habit of it!

IMG_0320

Here’s the first. October 28th. This cardigan is actually forest green but has decided not to appear that way. These are the jeans I’ve mentioned before, the ones I hate (they’re from New Look and there’s nothing wrong with the jeans themselves I just don’t like the way they fit me). I’m still searching for a suitable alternative so that I can either customise these in some way or give them away. Jurassic Park shirt was £3 from Primark and I love it even though it does have to stretch across my boobs a little more than either of us would like.

2nd is from November 4th (and, I admit, November 5th too). I’ve been looking for some cords for a really long time but I could never really find them anywhere. This picture isn’t great because it looks like they don’t fit me on the crotch but they actually do… oops. Anyway, I’ve been looking for cords for a while and I walked in a sale in Gap the other day and found these. Turns out they were even cheaper than I expected too, with the tag reading £19.99 but them actually coming in at £11.99. Score. Shirt is from H&M basics and was about £5 I think. The absolute simplest, blandest outfit of all time but really comfortable and I felt really cute. Especially when it was all teamed with my gold docs and my go-to scarf.

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 🙂
