Please don’t stop the music…

A year of blogging!  Who’d have thought it?  So there to everyone who thought it was just another of my fads:)

While taking the photos this morning I had the iPod on and it suddenly dawned on me that it was a year since my first post.  I couldn’t stop smiling, and then I couldn’t stop dancing…

The skirt is J.Crew, tights are Marks and Spencer, jumper is the Off Duty jumper from Boden and the boots are the fabulous Newburys.

Thanks to all of you for your support, and for embracing my weaknesses, challenging my opinions and reading my waffle – love you all xx

    Would never have looked twice at the Off-duty jumper until I read your blog – Ordered it recently and love it! Wouldn’t have thought of wearing it with a skirt – it looks great!

    I love your hair today, am tempted to have a major chop if it looks like yours!

      They are aren’t they! I rarely wear a skirt so it’s nice to put some wooly tights on with it.

    Happy Blog Birthday and I want that jumper! Do you know it’s the one item they hardly reduced anything off during their sale. Just my luck! Might still get it though :o)

    • Reply deadleighsims January 21, 2013 at 7:48 am

      Sue – yes – it’s the Off Duty jumper, and was only reduced by 15%!! I kept waiting to see if it would go down again, but gave in and bought it eventually! It is worth it though if you like the oversize look.

    • Reply Poppy's Style January 21, 2013 at 7:57 am

      It is fab – it might get reduced further later in clearance – I think it’s higher price as they got a bunch of new stock just before the sale started.

    I love hearing your thoughts and I will reply as soon as I can if you have a specific question! If you prefer email you can contact me at Thanks for taking the time to comment xx
