You think you're cooler than me

Navy lace skirt: River Island
Cream t-shirt: River Island
Red and cream striped 3/4 length cardigan: Primark
Navy and brown satchal: Primark
Navy tights: Primark
Red plastic watch: Toywatch
Pearl costume ring: made by blog redhead (Thank you Jamie, I love it!)

I forgot to put my shoes on! Can you tell that my brain has not been working recently?

This is what I wore yesterday to work, not the most exciting of outfits but it features my fave colour combo of navy and red. I don't think I can ever tire of it! My new bag is perfect! Its just right to fit all my junk in that I need to carry on the tube with me. Good old Primark comes up trumps again. I always look like a walking advert! I have scrubbed all my fake tan off and this is me naturally. I am not as pale as I thought I was haha, no longer looking radioactive!

I am struggling to manage my time, it seems like I have a million and one things to do and not enough time. I get home from work, have dinner and then its to bed. I am starting to cope with the tiredness a bit better so hopefully I will be able to stay up past 10pm soon!

Thank you for all your lovely comments, I am reading them on my phone and will try to reply to them over the weekend! I know I am being a bad blogger!

Hope you all are having a good week :)

  9. Love the outfit, especially the bag! I have it myself but just the plain tan version!

    The 30 day shread is an actual killer, i'm only on day 4 and i'm waking around like a an old woman! I honestly don't know if i'll be able to make it all the way to 30 days haha! I don't blame you for putting it off!

  10. Cute outfit, I very very nearly bought the same bag, but I went for the one in just tan and it's bloomin faulty so now I've got to take it back! :( xxx

  11. I love the red/white/blue combo, it's my favourite too :D
    Now you have 'Cooler than me' stuck in my head :p
