It's all a bit of fun 'til someone gets done

Blue jersey blazer: C/O Glamorous
Floral patterned skinny trousers: Primark
Black vest top: Primark
Patent platform pumps: Primark
Red plastic watch - Toywatch
Gold ball statement necklace - Topshop

I was very kindly sent this blazer from Glamorous along with my lovely top but have only just have the chance to blog about thanks to a broken camera. But that's not to mean I haven't been wearing it! I picked in with the mindset to wear it to work because let's face it blazers really are the perfect workwear - they can smarten almost anything up. I love the soft material of this blazer and vibrant colour immediately brightens an outfit up. We need all the help we can get to brighten up this gloomy weather! It's pretty lightweight too which is handy on the tube. It can be completely freezing in the outside world yet like a sauna underground.

In other news i'm off to sunny Bulgaria on Monday for two blissful weeks in the sunshine. I can't wait to top up my tan and do nothing but drink cocktails, read books and stuff my face. I've only been working full time for about a month but it's really taken it out of me. I survive on so little sleep recently after burning the candle at both ends so i'm looking forward to getting up at my leisure.

How have you all been? Hopefully i'll be blogging a lot more recently - i've really missed it! I've got lots of catching up to do!
