OOTD

A very quick outfit post today, as I'm about to rush off to work. Then it's a colleague's leaving drinks afterwards, so I won't be about to blog later. 

Thought I'd switch up from the borrring background in my hallway today...

(Jacket - H&M, Dress - Topshop, Belt - H&M, Bow - H&M, Boots - charity shop)

The jacket is probably a bit much on a warm day like today, but the air con was a bit nippy in work the other day so I'm hoping it'll be okay. The dress is a bit arm-y and my arms are grotesque, so I'd really rather not have to flaunt them! Fingers crossed for icy air con...

Hope you have an exquisite weekend! Anyone put any bets on the Grand Nash? Good luck if so. I put £1 on a horse called 'Niche Market' as I feel quite an affinity with the phrase...

  3. What size are you wearing in that dress? I got my normal size and my boobs are busting out! Obviously I wouldn't have a problem like this compared to you.. so I'm confused! Looks lovely anyhow, have been looking for a bigger size to exchange so I can finally wear it x

  13. That jacket does not look like it is from H&M, looks like you have spent colossal amounts on it. Lovely choice.

  14. Really like your boots. Shoes like that always remind me of Legolas, and anything LOTR is a win in my book!xx
