Wow, I can’t remember the last time I dug out this Asda George dress (who happen to have a cracking sale right now), to be honest I had forgotten about it and wasn’t sure it’d fit…plus the fact the length borders on indecent but I love it anyway.
Teamed with tights and boots from New Look I wore this to go shopping with my parents on Sunday; we ventured to the designer outlet at Swindon for a browse and I picked up a couple of gems there at really good prices. I experienced a cosmetics outlet for the first time and nabbed a MAC palette from a collection that somehow passed me by at the time as well as some bargain undies from Calvin Klein. I do find outlets quite hit or miss but this time was a hit for sure.

Did we all survive the first day back in the “real world”? As someone who thrives on routine I found it quite refreshing if I’m was mad though, but the kind of mad that is actually really good fun when you have enough coffee in your system and good colleagues to work with.

And now we’re almost at the weekend, I wish every week was this short!

  1. I love that dress, if you have opaque tights on then the shorter the better! :-p

    I am the same I find outlets hit and miss too, the one thing I always find a hit at them though is the makeup bit, AMAZING!

  22. I love the colour of your tights. I am ECSTATIC that it’s the weekend after tomorrow. I need to chill out and properly recharge. Though I have a sneaky feeling that I’m probably going to feel the same when it’s Monday morning at 6am!

  23. Ahh short is absolutely fine.. as long as you’re not bending over at work!

    I have to agree, I really enjoy a busy day at work when the customers are cheerful and my caffeine levels are kept topped up.

  27. Those tights are gorgeous and the length is acceptable! xxx

  28. I adore that dress, so cute and can be worn dressed up or down. My sort of dress. I’m a sucker for the collar anyway.

    I had a terrible first day back in the real world and lost my job.. typical! Can’t wait to get into my bed.

  29. You rock this dress!
    I wish every working week was three days long, how lovely that would be *sigh*

  30. Love this look, especially with the tights!! You look fab xx

  31. Loving the dress- I hate it when things get shorter though- I’ve taken to washing certain things only on cold, in a big to retain their length.

    I’ve only ever been to an outlet once, with not a lot of joy, glad yours was a hit though. I’m glad to be back to normal, but I’m looking forward even more to Monday, to reset from all weird days off.
