Run on

I have been terribly neglectful lately. I prefer not to blog out of obligation because the few times I have done, I wasn’t very happy with the result. In some ways I think I am suffering from a lack of inspiration.

I’ve been trying to figure out why. Part of it is that I have been unable to afford anything new for a while, but then I haven’t really needed anything new either.  When I say ‘New’ I mean new to me – I embrace charity and thrift shopping when I have the time. But with ‘new’ comes the fashion equivalent to an adrenalin rush - even a new solid coloured tee makes me want to run home and pair it with everything I own to see what looks best.

For the most part I’ve been a bit bored with clothes and shopping. Don’t get me wrong, there are some amazing things out there, but there are also a lot of the same bits, but in different colours or some other slightly altered state to make it a must-have for the season. When I was looking at bits in the sales, there was very little that sold itself to me.

I am very inspired by the Comtesse de Ferveur and the challenge she has set herself to not buy anything for a year, unfortunately I have a list of things I need to buy in the coming months that started last year due to loss or wear and tear on the currently owned items. In most cases I am either waiting for the right version of it or for the cash to be available in my bank account.

Though I did manage to pick up a few things in the sales and one item that was necessary as per my last runners. They don’t have yellow, but they do have silver - I put the mad red laces in myself as they came with navy laces and I decided they needed a bit if oomph and if you can’t have fun with your runners...what can you have fun with? Plus I bagged them in Size? for half of their original price.
