Outfit post: Actually wearing shoes

Look! I finally remembered to get some pictures of my outfit before taking off my shoes! Well done me. I wore this to work yesterday:

Dress – Primark
Belt – New Look
Shrug – Next
Tights – Probably Primark, they’re only plain
Shoes – New Look
I love this shrug. I got it in the sale at Christmas just gone. It’s so easy to just chuck on over an outfit. I especially love how it looks with long sleeve blouses. It’s definitely my go to item this week.

And check out my cloud nails! I’m really proud considering I mess up just painting plain nails.

Top Ten: Week 6

Another week, another top ten. The bf reckons you could get away with wearing all of this at once. I’m not convinced. 
 

 

TOPTEN
I always feel a bit funny now when searching for bags for my top ten posts. Kind of like I’m cheating on my Alexa. This suede and leather bag looks perfect for spring. It would brighten up any outfit. Plus, it’s a good way of pastel shy people (i.e. me) to follow the trend without literally wearing it. I like pastels on other people, but they just don’t look right on me. 
 
I really don’t know what it is with me and chevrons at the moment. They seem to have been subtly showing up everywhere ever since I made them my blog’s background. I am loving them though. And speaking of patterns, how cool is this Miss Selfridge maxi? I only wish it had two straps – being a big chested lady (*giggles*) I really need two. I don’t like having to rely on using clear bra straps, I gave up on them years ago. Ah well.
 
Have you seen anything nice this week?

My week 15

Kind of an uneventful week with rather few photos, but I was really put down by the rain. My oh my it was a lot of rain!

I had to laugh when I saw this. Anywhere else get this much rain this week?

*I am quite a clumsy person but I have never had a bag of sugar fall from the top shelf onto me. It was everywhere – I was still finding sugar in my bra hours later!
*A drawing for the bf: I love you like this koala loves that tree. Made him smile which was good since he wasn’t feeling very well. 
*The house search begins. Looked around 4 places this week. It begins apparently too early according to the estate agents as all their properties are available now and we’re not looking to move until the end of June. And I thought I was being quite organised. Ah well, will resume the hunt in a month. 
*Bank holiday Monday was lovely. I used the entire day to work on my shops. It was really enjoyable and I wish I could spend everyday doing it. Got a sale on each shop this week. See what happens when I actually work on them? Must work harder. 
I was planning on going to a few car boot sales today but I must remember to find them earlier than the night before. I stayed up so late looking for them that I was too tired to get up at 6 this morning to go. Very silly. Will make sure that I go in 2 weeks when I’m next free. 
 
How was your week? Hopefully less rainy than mine!

Outfit Post: Back in the day

An outfit reminiscent of my old school uniform – the colours at least. Dug out this old button down Dorothy Perkins skirt I got in the sale for £7 forever ago. Still fits (yes!) unlike my old uniform.

White short sleeved shirt – Primark (it’s rare that I rave about the fit of something from Primark but omg I love how this shirt fits – so much that I have bought a few of them)
Jumper – Espirit 
Belt – New Look
Skirt – Dorothy Perkins
Tights – Primark I think? Who cares, I ripped a hole in them so they had to put them in the bin anyway
Shoes….er they were New Look when I was wearing them. Really need to start remembering to take photos before I take off my shoes!
Nails – Models Own – Jade Stone
 
The maroonyness that is my tights – imagine that colour on a skirt! Maybe one day if I am pestered enough I will dig out a photo of my old school uniform because it truly was a crime to fashion. Boxy red and grey striped blazer…nope no more, the pain is still too fresh!
 
I now have a side fringe as I am a) too skint and b) too lazy to go get it cut. Soon my poor hair, soon. Think I’ll be chopping the rest of my hair a fair bit shorter too. I prefer it shorter, it bugs me less. 
 
What was your old school uniform like? Bearable or horrific?
