This dress, despite being one of the oldest I own and costing the princely sum of £3 in New Look a few years ago appears to have become a work staple. Comfortable, not low cut (vital when working on front desk) and a decent length with potential for a few different pairs of tights (although my tights obsession seems to be waning somewhat lately/I’ve been more boring with my choices).




It was somewhat depressing to be putting on ankle boots for JUNE! It was seriously raining when I left for work yesterday; but in the end it turned out to be a gorgeous day…judging by the fact the sun woke me up around 5am today, I think things might be on the up! I’m thankful I have the morning at home to make the most of it, being part-time does have advantages!

My free time will mostly be used for panicking over outfit choice for the Yummy Hair event in London on Saturday. It’s the first one I’ve been invited to and goddam I am nervous and somewhat overwhelmed at the idea of being surrounded by so many stylish people!

Thank you for all of the incredibly sweet comments on yesterday’s post. They each meant a lot to me.

Allow me to show it off one more time…
