retro weekends

The lovely folk at Matalan sent me this dress a few weeks ago, and for some reason, even back then, I deemed the weather too cold to wear it.
Add in a Β£5 Primark jumper, the ever faithful Tesco tights and my Yull Chelsea boots and ta-daa…one of the warmest outfits I’ve come up with to date!

Ever since I saw this dress in the S/S lookbook, I wanted it. I can’t explain why. I don’t think I need to really!

Thank you for the get well wishes, I am still full of cold, but my voice finally made it’s return during coffee with a friend yesterday afternoon.

We’re on the final leg to Christmas; I’m so excited for this week! Work Christmas party on Wednesday, plus the homecoming of my Brother. Thursday is Mum’s Birthday and then Friday we have a Christmas lunch at work…
bring it on!
