Frankly, it’s too hot here for anything other than minimal dressing. Early summer heatwaves in this part of India are traditionally relieved by late afternoon thunderstorms called Kalboishakis, but climate change has put an end to all that. Not even mad dogs and Englishmen would be stupid enough to brave the outdoors between 9am and 5pm. I, however, was foolhardy enough to a couple of days ago, and my reward was a killer migraine. Since then, I’ve decided to stick to venturing out after sundown, much like a vampire.
I’ve worn this NW3 playsuit on the blog before, although I daresay it fitted better when I bought it. Everything else in this outfit is remixed too. I never used to wear orange but all the tangerines and corals in ss14 have finally brought me around to it. Which is awesome because brown people are born to carry off every single dazzlingly warm hue ever.

Continuing with the ladylike theme, here’s a lovely tea dress today! Being who I am though, I had to add something a bit eccentric to it, so I chose my gold brogues from Goldenponies instead of dainty heels. These, by the way, are the most comfortable and well fitting shoes I own, and they are handmade as well without costing the earth. AND they came wrapped in Mexican newsprint which I admit to hoarding because I was the sort of kid who collected stamps in another lifetime.
Anyway, before I forget, the winner of my ASOS giveaway is: Jennifer Sawyer! Congratulations, Jennifer, your voucher code should be in your inbox. Thanks everyone who entered, I was rather overwhelmed by the response!
Finally, if you missed it, my Instagram was featured on The Huffington Post on Friday in the company of some of my favourite bloggers’. You can check out the article here!

Sometimes I feel ladylike. Much as I love my schoolgirly outfits, sometimes it’s just fun to dress like I’m actually a functional adult. As a low functioning person with BPD, I constantly have the impression that everyone around me has their shit together so much more than I do, but as it turns out, pretty much everyone feels like they are blundering in the dark. Maybe that’s a feature of the human condition. Maybe no one actually knows what they’re doing - they just give off that impression. Bluffs and double bluffs and counter bluffs, and that’s how we trudge, limp and flounder on.
