This is a typical work outfit - i.e. a t-shirt tucked into a midi skirt. Nothing too exciting but it helps me feel like i'm making some effort going into work. Not too smart for a fairly casual office but smart enough to be working in the city. I brought this skirt months ago for just £7.99 - full price! - and have only really just started to get use out of it after losing some weight. It was one of those skirts that had to go over your head as it wouldn't go past your bum. It was happening to a lot of my clothes ha! These shoes may look pretty but they ripped my feet to shreds by the end of the day. I think they may need some wearing in! Excuse the exposed bra strap I didn't notice until I uploaded them! If i'm looking a bit bleary eyed it's because these at half 7 in the morning. Came to the conclusion that my outfit posts are better when I do them in the evening haha!

I'm off on holiday on Monday - I don't think i've mentioned it enough! I'm going to try and get a few posts scheduled for the two weeks but it might not happen! If things are a little quiet over the next few weeks you know why!

Hope you all have a lovely weekend! I'm off to Brighton tomorrow as the boyfriend booked a night in a hotel before we fly out from Gatwick. He's a keeper eh? See you all in two weeks!
