Flowers of Romance

Coat: c/o Motel// Dress and Boots: Topshop//Hat: Primark

This dress is amazing- looks like a carpet, feels like a carpet and its super snug too. I really should've taken off my coat for a better photo, but it was just too darn cold. I've been feeling a little 'blah' about blogging since being back to be honest, a bit tired of the over sharing, Instagrammed, Twitter mad, commenting frenzy that is blogging. I can't be bothered to snap my (even if I do say so myself) quite photogenic poached eggs and smoked salmon breakfast, or every single cuppa I drink.. sometimes I do (see above), but mostly I don't. I think it's really easy to fall out of love with blogging, it's such a labour intense endeavour at times, people outside of the blogging bubble don't really know this. It's such a fickle world too, a few weeks out and you feel like you've been left behind.

Anyway, that is enough pointless chat for one post. I'm off to watch Falcon with my cat.

  1. Ah i love your coat and you look so snug in your hat :) I know what you mean I think we all go through phases of finding blogging more of a chore than something you love/enjoy doing ox

  2. Lovely dress, looks very snug! It really is so easy to go off blogging some times, I've been out of the bubble since October and I feel like I'm so out of the loop!

  3. It really does look like carpet! But lovely carpet, rather than horrible granny carpet! Is it like central heating in dress form!? :-)

    I know what you mean on the Instagram/Twitter front, I have binges of using both regularly and then droughts in which I feel totally boring and uninteresting so avoid it like the plague.

    P.S I think there are only so many Instagrams of breakfasts and cups of coffee I can appreciate

  6. Oh you look so cosy and snuggled in this outfit I love it :) Seriously wish I could pull off a hat but my hair is just too short :(
    I'm so sorry to hear you're not feeling great about blogging atm :( I know exactly where you're coming from; I find myself questioning quite a lot how I'm doing with it and I've started realising that some people in the blogging world aren't overly nice :/ I went to a couple of press days for the first time the other day and found it quite difficult as I was by myself and I kind of got the feeling that people were looking at me thinking I didn't belong there. I always think it's best to remember it's your blog and only blog about what you want to and not for anyone else. Your blog is one of the first that I read when I started blogging and you are one of the loveliest people I've met through it <3
    Love Holly x

  12. Love this outfit, that dress is indeed amazing! I love your furry hat, as well. I know what you mean about blogging - I've just had two months of being almost completely offline and I feel so much better for it. It can all get a bit much sometimes.

  23. I tried to buy this dress in my local Topshop my other day but it was all sold out :-( it's so beautiful. I know exactly what you mean about blogging, I've been feeling exactly the same recently xx

  25. Sexy coat. I really need to embrace winter but have so far refused to do so. Blogging can be a bit of a chore sometimes, I agree. Just take a break and recharge... with Spanish delights and Falcon, which I must remember to find and watch! Thanks for the suggestion Consuela, xxx

  26. I love, love, love those winter flowers, Raquel.
    You are always inspiring and wonderful.

  27. I am thoroughly jealous that you get to wear a gorgeous coat...and a HAT! I swear I am planning my trip to Russia next November just so that I can indulge in some wonderful winter fashion because I always feel I'm missing out!

    I understand completely what you mean about blogging...I find it so stressful! Especially if I get nasty comments about my photos and whatnot, it can be off-putting!

  35. Ow babs, you'll get your blogging mojo back. I often feel a little disheartened about it, sometimes it feels like I don't have anything worthwhile to say. All the same, this outfit post of yours has to be one of my favourites you've done yet! I LOVE the hat and the coat! ♥ Claire @ Jazzpad
