'Baby it's cold outside' // Morning Musings

IT'S SO COLD!! I feel like I'm walking in a freezer every time I step outside :( Is it this cold everywhere else or is it just Nottingham or am I just a wimp? I'm not quite sure...

Anyway, I met up a while ago with my friend Nora for coffee and chats and managed to dig out this shirt from my mum's wardrobe to wear. I don't even know where she bought it from but I love the embroidery detail at the top.  Honestly, I haven't worn white in like three years just because I'm so paranoid of getting something on it but this shirt is just too nice.



Shirt; My Mum's
Blazer; Matalan
Jeans; New Look

I saw this text post on Tumblr recently and spent a good five minutes just thinking to myself about how true it was.


 It reminded me of a scene from the film The Holiday where Kate Winslet's character, Iris, is being given some good old fashioned advice - 'Iris, in the movies, we have leading ladies and we have the best friend. You, I can tell, are a leading lady, but for some reason, you're behaving like the best friend.'  Yep. You don't wanna go living your life as the best friend in someone else's movie, but the leading lady in your own... as weird/abstract as that may sound. But I hope you get the point/idea/message!  It's nice to remind yourself every now and then just how important you actually are. I think it's easy to get lost sometimes in thinking that you have to be a certain way, act a certain way or be a certain type of person in order for you and your beliefs, views or opinions to be taken seriously. You don't.  This is something I struggled with loads during school and college while constantly being reminded by teachers about how quiet I was. Is being quiet a bad thing? Obviously within reason, it's not like I would just sit there and not communicate ever with anyone... I just wasn't as loud as everyone else. Everything is so cut-throat and everyone is so harsh with each other it feels like if you're not standing up and shouting out your opinions, you have nothing worth saying... What do you guys think?
