Back to work for me today. It is an odd one as I am happy to be back to it and getting things done but I am missing spending time with my family. On Christmas Eve N, Miss O and myself were all in the local post office (I am there everyday Monday to Friday and N is in for me on a Saturday) and the owner commented that it was the first time she had EVER seen us all together as a family. We have had this same set up since April! This made me really quite sad - as it highlighted that we have so little time as a family.
However, we have had a lovely few days together and Christmas has been wonderful. We also have a few days just us again next week and I am very much looking forward to it.
It is pretty miserable and stormy here today so I decided cosy was the order of the day. My sister got me this cardigan for Christmas and I love it. However, next time I think I will pair it with a more colourful look.
Today's look is:
Jeans - Primark
T-shirt - Primark
Cardigan - New look
Shoes - Charlotte Russe
Scarf - Gift

As I am self employed I do not have works Christmas party, so for all that we have lots on in December I do not have the worry of finding a Christmas party dress or outfit.
However, this year my good friend turned 30 and decided to have a festive night out and dinner to celebrate. As this was my only dressy night out I did not want to go too over the top, but I wanted to look festive and dressed up.
The sequin blazer came into stock a few weeks before we went on holiday and I took one to wear over a black jumpsuit to a family wedding. I knew that I wanted to wear it again during the festive season, so it was the first part of my night out look.
While we were away the dress was delivered to the shop stocks and I loved how it was comfortable and casual jersey with the cute lace detail. Having just spent 10 days in the sunshine I decided to be brave and go with bare legs.
All in all I really like the look and will wear it again.
Night out look was:
Dress - Blend
Blazer - Blend
Shoes - Christian Louboutin
As it was so long ago I have very little to say about this look.
Well other than I love the skirt. I had noticed it in Primark in the autumn and liked it, however, I did not like it enough to pay the price tag (it was not a huge amount of money but....). Anyway I was in town with my mum and Miss O the day before and this was on a clearance rack for £1.00!! Yep just £1.00 - it was the only one so I grabbed it and bought it ( I did not try it on as it was only £1.00). I am really pleased with it and have a few ideas in mind of other ways to wear it soon.
Skirt - Primark
Tee - B Young
Cardigan - Blend
Tights - SkunkFunk
Boots - Forever 21
