In which I go to work



Dress H&M, Belt, absolutely no idea, I think either Miss Selfridge/Zara/Topshop, around 5 years ago!


I wore this to work, hence the slightly dull nature of the outfit… but I haven’t posted an outfit for a while. The dress does look okay without a belt, but I prefer it with, and I need something to clip my keys and walkie talkie onto at work.


This Hand of Hamsa necklace has replaced the silver sideways cross that I used to wear, it was a gift from my mum for Christmas (etsy I think) and has a tiny diamanté set into it) I love the length, as it’s so short that it doesn’t interfere with any other necklaces I wear. The hand is brushed silver, so isn’t too blingy!)

I might carry on talking pictures of work outfits, as at this time of the year when I tend to hibernate due to lack of funds/cold weather/ impending birthday doom I pretty much go to work then get into my PJs when I come in. However, I am off to Germany a week today, so expect pictures of me wearing a heat, scarf and mittens for a while. The German man says it’s going to snow!

I really need to to think about what to pack… My bestest bud is moving back to the UK when I fly home, she’s been au pairing there for almost a year, so I need a big suitcase to fling her stuff in, which limits what I can take (which is a good thing really!)

Hope your ‘Black Monday’ wasn’t too depressing!

    the belted dress looks very smart. Germany sounds like it’ll be fun and chilly!

    Hopefully we will do a lot of stomping around looking at things and exploring, (and drinking hot chocolate) so we won’t feel the cold! xx

    That sounds awesome! If I had endless amounts of money I would shop from etsy for everything! x
