Outfit Post | Country Bumpkin and the Flu

This weekend, I have the dreaded woman flu. I don't know if you've heard, but it's a hell of a lot worse than that silly old 'man flu'. So really, I should have stayed put in bed yesterday, but I had arranged to see a dear old friend and we had such a lovely day. Luckily, she was happy to take a few snaps of me prancing about in a field (I fear I won't be able to muster any sort of energy to make myself up for a wee while); after we'd spent the morning traipsing to the doctors, shopping to our hearts content, stuffing our face with mc donalds and stopping off for a quick pineapple and lemonade (best drink ever, fact). I am now utterly exhausted.

Anyway, you know how I said in my last post that I was falling back in love with Topshop again? Well, these snaps definitely back that up.
Blazer: Topshop Top: Vintage Leggings: Topshop Boots: Annie and the Mannequins Hair: MESS


I am a big fat fan of these velvet flocked check leggings. Not only are they super cosy and warm, they're a complete steal. At only £28 I couldn't quite believe it had Topshop's name to it. And I know, before you say it, yes they're only leggings and not jeans etc. etc. but they are amazing quality and so sturdy! I know I'll definitely be wearing them a lot more now the weather's turning a little bit chilly. Autumn/Winter is definitely my favourite time of year. And although I love the sun, I much prefer wearing comfy, warm clothes; I cannot wait to start wearing my big, oversized, fluffy jumpers and ridiculous PJ's.
Yesterday, the sun was out but there was certainly a bit of a chill in the air (may just be my lurgy..). So even though these leggings are SO warm, I thought I'd team them with something a little lighter. The cream blouse is a favourite of mine (actually the mothers underwear, again). It's silky, loose material means it goes with almost anything, and it's lovely and cool. I also popped on my trusty black blazer and cowboy boots. After all, this is the countryside you know.

Have you all had a lovely weekend? Get up to anything exciting?

I've just been looking for some trousers like yours!! They look lovely! Your hair is gorgeous!

I bloody well wish I looked like that when I'm ill! I must sound like a broken record, but you look amazing as per. And you hair does not look like a mess, if you would like to witness a mess just pop on over to my blog sometime! Hope you're feeling better soon lovely xxx

Julia said...

Your leggings are really cool, they're the highlight of your outfit, which is very beautiful in its whole :D
Also your hair is kind of perfect to me, and I'm definitely trying to get that color... So I wanted to know, did you bleached your hair before dying it ? And what color/brand did you use to get it ?
Sorry if I'm bothering but I've never seen you mentioning it before, I hope you don't mind me asking !

And I hope you'll be feeling better soon ! xxx

WonderfulYou said...

Thanks lovely :) when I spotted them in the shop I had to have them!xx

WonderfulYou said...

I'd definitely say they're no ordinary leggings, they're so thick and well made! thank you lovely :) xx

WonderfulYou said...

Ah it really is isn't it Natasha!x

WonderfulYou said...

Owh :) thank you so much!xx

WonderfulYou said...

Haha, don't know about that Lucy Lou, but thank you :) (ooh, that rhymed!) xx

WonderfulYou said...

Thank you Rachel, I love them! :) I'd say they're definitely more like trousers, but they're super stretchy :) xx

WonderfulYou said...

Haha, Kaz. Best comment ;) that is definitely the massive difference between man and woman. We just suck it up! Although, I haven't left my bed for more than 5 minutes today! Whoopsy xx

WonderfulYou said...

Ooh you should get them :D thank you so much xx

Miss Danielle said...

HEV please be quiet. I love your hair, and your face and your clothes and YOU. (stalker and don't even care). Thank you though, I hope I feel better too! Sounding like a dying old man is not cool. Ergh xx

WonderfulYou said...

Hi Julia :) don't apologise, of course you're not a bother!! I have never bleached my hair. Naturally, my hair is a mousy brown, so it's quite light which I suppose helps. My hairdresser dyes my hair for me, and she uses a brand called matrix. She mixes two colours (brown and red) to achieve my hair colour. Although, it changes every time because of the sun etc :)

Hope that helps!xx

WonderfulYou said...

Thank you so much lovey :D xx

becky smith said...

I love your hair and that drink looks so refreshing it's making me thirsty. I really like the outfit think it looks great on you, but i certainly don't feel i would be able to pull off such daring leggings xx

Sophie - CGDN said...

I didn't realise they were leggings, they look perfectly trousery to me. I'd LOVE to wear these but my stomach is NO WAY flat enough to pull off this look!

daniella-r said...

Great leggings! I love the zip detail :) Your hair looks lovely in these photos, very jealous (and I agree pineapple and lemonade is the best drink ever!)

WonderfulYou said...

Becky, you always say stuff like that! Of course you could :) they're just leggings :) xx

WonderfulYou said...

Haha, my stomach isn't flat either Sophie! But these suck it in quite well :) xx

WonderfulYou said...

It is isn't it Daniella :D awh thank you so much xxx

Saar said...

Good god. I'm so jealous of your hair. I've probably said this before but GOOD GOD. :D
x Love, saar

WonderfulYou said...

Ahh thank you lovey :) starting to feel a bit better now!xx

WonderfulYou said...

Haha, Saar you're so funny. Thank you!xx

Julia said...

Thank you very much for answering ! Maybe I'll do like you and just ask my hairdresser, it's more difficult to have the result we want when we do it alone.
I'm looking forward to seeing your next posts, always love it :D

Lydia said...

Ahhh I really want some of those leggings! You look gorgeous x

Kfedland said...

Well megan, let me tell you.. Considering you have woman flu, you LOOK BLOODY AMAZING. I mean if you look fit when you're ill, god only knows how smoking you are in real life innit. You make my good days look like I'm really hungover, thrown in a bush, and had my hair all pulled over the place.
Love the outfit, this seems like the perfect attire for a prance around a field (and that's what friends are for right, to take photos...!) xx

Krystalklear22 said...

I LOVE your hair. I have been playing with the idea of changing my hair color to one a tad darker than yours for months now but I am terrified the color will come out wrong.

Alice ♥ said...

How can you look this gorgeous when you have flu?! You look gorgeous in these leggings, it makes me want to whack out all of my auntumnal clothes and go for cute walks :) xxxxx PS I hope you feel better soon lovely!

WonderfulYou said...

Awh thank you so much :) such a bargain too, i love them!!xxx

WonderfulYou said...

Get some Lydia :D xx

WonderfulYou said...

Oh Katy do be quiet, you are the ultimate babe and have a wardrobe that I am MASSIVELY jealous of. And yes, yes they are haha. xxx

WonderfulYou said...

I think the sunlight enhances my hair colour quite a lot in these pictures. My hair is quite a bit darker than this, and just a lot redder when the light catches it :) go for it! You can always dye it back :) xx

WonderfulYou said...

Owh Alice, you're so sweet! I absolutely love getting all my comfy clothes out for autumn :) starting to feel a little bit better thank you xxx

WonderfulYou said...

Thank you! They're leggings though, so even better :D xx
