Lady in red

Outfit:
Red skater dress with black belt: Matalan
Black tights: Primark
Patent mid heeled courts: Next

Not the most ground breaking outfit i've ever worn but this is what I typically wear to work. A knee length dress with heels. I'm lucky in the fact I can wear what I want but I just don't feel comfortable turning up to work in jeans. It's always nice to get a little dressed up everyday isn't it? This dress was an absolute bargain at just £9 from Matalan, my lovely mother hunted it out for me. It really is such lovely quailty and fully lined. Not bad for under a tenner! I think it's going to become a staple for me. I instantly felt I had a spring in my step this morning wearing such a bright dress!

It's LDN Lunch tomorrow girls! How quick has it come around? I am so excited to meet all of you and have a good old natter. And of course some well deserved cocktails! I really hope you all have such a lovely time. A massive thank you to my buddies Claire and Eloise who have both sweated blood to make sure this all comes off. See you all tomorrow! :)
