Working Girl

Just a super quick outfit post before I head off to work, I’m only in 2-5 today…clearly they are breaking me in gently. After this week I’ll be doing 3 x 4 hour shifts a week to make up the 12 hours, this week is rather manic however with pre-arranged appointments also having to fit in! Tomorrow I’m working 8:30-1pm, home for a quick lunch then back out to hang around at the doctors for a while and collect prescriptions (which takes about 25 million hours!)
Blogging/commenting will become a little less intense, but no-one’s gonna hate me if I don’t comment on *every* post I read, right?!




This is the skirt I bought in the River Island sale before Christmas! Love it! After my ASOS order the other day, I was really naughty and bought a dress I saw on the Peacocks site yesterday,
my local store is so small, so when I saw it in there today I was so shocked and just had to get it!

Much love
