Here are 2 outfits I have wore this week. I'm getting quite back into the swing of outfit posts and enjoying them again. I always think there's no point in blogging about something if you're not enjoying it, it shows. Perhaps it's something to do with the few new purchases I've made lately that have injected a bit of fresh air into my wardrobe. Sometimes your wardrobe can begin to feel a bit stale after no new purchases, especially when you WANT to make new purchases but can't afford to. It becomes so frustrating and then uninspiring.
This is what I wore yesterday to have lunch with my grandparents, sister and mum. The skirt is new and from Zara. I have been searching for the perfect red skirt for so long and this *nearly* meets all of the criteria, except for the buttons on it. However, I could always take them off or change them to just red buttons if I get bored of them. Still, it is a pretty snazzy skirt. And it has pockets! I have so much love for skirts and dresses with pockets.
This dress also has pockets! I wore this for work on Tuesday. The pockets make it so practical for work, I always end up carrying around pens and pieces of paper so pockets are ideal for this. I prettied up this simple dress with my bow belt, which has been getting quite a lot of wear lately. I would also like one in red. I got lots of compliments on this in work, because it's a bit different to some of the more conservative outfits I wear for work, which consist of a black skirt, white shirt and white cardigan. It can be quite tiresome trying to dress smart for work but I'm slowly getting used to jazzing up my outfits whilst still making them work appropriate.
I also think that the I Know What You Wore This Summer blog has been helping keep me motivated with the outfit posts! You should all check it out and contribute to it, I'd love to see your summery outfits. Or not so summery, as the weather is here. As you can see I'm back to wearing (very thin) tights, because it's just too cold to go bare legged again! This makes me very sad.
And on that note, happy weekend! I'll be a busy bee this bank holiday weekend, working on Saturday and then going to the dot to dot festival in Manchester on Monday, but I'll make sure I enjoy the bank holiday. Do you have any bank holiday plans?
