Work Wardrobe

Don't you hate it when you go from a job where you wear a uniform everyday to a job where you have, you know, choice?

 Like guys is it okay if I come in my Boots potato sack because I don't actually own any other clothes any more....

Having a new job is the perfect excuse to get a whole new 'work' wardrobe, and I've been on the lookout for new pieces to add.


One of my recent additions is this blue jacket from Damart. I really like quite structured jackets as they instantly make a really simple dress look a lot more formal which has meant I can bring a lot of my daytime weekend wardrobe into work.

The colour is right up my street and the open jacket style means it lies really effortlessly on too with no clunky buttons getting in the way.

I also bought loads of items from TK Maxx and Primark which will no doubt end up doing the rounds on my blog!

Update: March 2016


New job UK Graduate

You know how it is; you have fifteen blog posts lined up and you're filing your nails like 'yeah girl, job well done', then before you know it life takes over and you're like 'oh yeah I had a blog that one time'. As all basic bloggers say, I have a good excuse...

A NEW JOB
Yeaaa boi, the days of retail are gone (for now...) and I have a new job working in PR.

I'm mainly hooking up bloggers with campaigns mainly based around films, so if that seems like your jam drop me an email. I LOVE it because hello I love blogging and someone is allowing me to obsess about it all day long guilt free.

 My favourite thing about the job is how many amazing bloggers there are out there I wasn't aware of and that I get to connect to you all!

SAYING GOODBYE
Although I haven't spoke much about this in my real life, it was my Granda's funeral two weeks ago which was very hard hitting for the whole family.

It was really difficult but thankfully we had each other and can move on together to think of the happy memories.

LEAVING RETAIL
For six weeks I worked two jobs (70 hours a week say what) which is sort of why along with everything else my blog got a bit lost along the way.

I was very sad to leave my retail job as I loved my boss so much and had grown close with a lot of my colleagues.

That being said we meet outside of work and I'm really thankful for the opportunities in my life at the moment!

The Good Guide to Mother's Day

Since moving away from my hometown there isn't a day that goes by where I don't miss my family. I'm very family orientated in nature and with Mother's Day tomorrow it really drums in the distance that we now have between us.

Sisterhood Of The World Bloggers Tag


Remember the early days of blogging when everyone did tags? Or when we blogged about our nights out and our weekly Mcdonalds trip?

Nowadays blogging is so polished and full of quinoa, so when Tania tagged me to do the 'Sisterhood Of the World Bloggers Tag', I had to get on all over that.

The Luxemme Swing Dress

 

When it comes to dresses there is something about an exposed back that I'm really attracted to. I just think it looks quite sexy whilst still being effortless, kind of like 'oh this old thing?' but really you spent like 3 hours deliberating over your outfit.

I was instantly drawn to the 'LBD Swing Dress' by Luxemme for this reason so when they very kindly asked me to choose a dress to review this was my instant choice. It's the ultimate holiday dress for me because I'm the type of girl who spends every lunch eating the entire buffet bar then I get to night and I'm like 'oh where did this three stone come from?' With this dress though you can not only hide a food baby but a full family of five under there. I also really like the length as I'm getting a little bit past mini skirts and as I store 90% of weight on my legs I like to keep them fairly covered up.


The huge cut outs make it perfect because it stops the dress looking shapeless and still leaves a tiny bit to the imagination (just about). I got this in a size 10 but I would recommend going a side down as it's quite a big fit if you were interested in getting this. I think this will be great for a breezy holiday and I'm really happy to have this in my wardrobe.

Enjoy this post? See my recent big TK Maxx.
