What is this? An outfit post? It is indeed my lovelys! Christmas in July means that I have been getting into work, eating dinner and going straight to bed. But as of next week I am getting home at an reasonably hour so will have more outfit posts for you if you want? I have quite a few new things, from Primark of course!

My mum treated me to this bargain skirt (only £5) today and I just knew I had to wear it tomorrow to work. Still not entirely sure that it is flattering, I think it makes my legs looks stumpy (still trying to lose weight, am stuck at 3 pounds). But I love it enough to wear it anyway. It is just so ladylike and seems perfect for working in the city. I want to walk along the platform swishing away. The rest if the outfit is old old and more old. I have had these shoes for about 3-4 years and had only worn then a few times. But these last few months I have worn them to death. It would seem they are the perfect work shoe!

I am off out for dinner tomorrow, meeting my friends at the classy establishment that is Wetherspoons. I think I might have a cheeky vodka and cranberry juice. You know, push the boat out.

How has your week been so far? Anything exciting happen?
Big hello to new followers, talk to me on twitter. I promise I won't bite :)


  1. This is a beautiful outfit! I think the skirt really flatters you, especially when it's paired with the blazer. So cute! x

  2. Very apt title, my dear!
    You look fabulous, very clasy which deffo belies the price you paid.
    Have fun at the 'spoons, you can't beat it. x

  3. Black and cream combo...very Chanel darling! (Or as my boyf calls it: Channel. Oh dear.)

  8. oh i think this outfit looks really classy ;) i always steer away from blacks as it reminds me of waitressing jobs in the past, but you are proof here that it can be done ever so elegantly :)

  9. Love the skirt, what a bargain! I usually worry about stumpiness as well what with being pretty short. I tend to wear midi skirts with wedges to add a little bit of height :) xx
