This is what i'm wearing to work today to my retail job. The shirt is a new buy on uniform and it's safe to say i'm in love. The collar completely captured my heart and I had to have it! Since i've been losing weight i've started to get my confidence back and am finding myself more and more drawn to wearing trousers. I've always loved how effortless trousers look but have always been too scared to wear them. Child bearing hips do not like trousers! These are without a doubt the most comfortable pair of trousers I have ever worn and I don't have to wiggle to pull them on. Result!

Going down to visit my grandad for dinner today and i've been a very good grandaughter and baked him a treacle tart. Although i'm not too sure it'll be that nice as the pastry is a bit thin and it blistered! Still it was only my first go and I now know I need to invest in some baking beads.

Have you got much planned or are you having a lazy day?

  10. Definitely wear more trousers! You look very Olivia Palmero esque, and I've more than likely spelt her name wrong.
    Also you've made me want to bake. And I can't bake. At all.
