the checked shirt

Hey guys! Here's some photos of me swanning about in a Reading car park #glamlife. I've just got back from a week at my parent's place in Spain which was total relaxation! While I had some time out I thought I'd get editing and finally put up a new blog post on here. I know I've been super inconsistent on this but I really want to try to stick at it this time.. (just as the weather's getting worse and the nights are getting darker) wish me luck!

the statement jacket

Spring is finally here! I am so happy with how these photos turned out, I think this jacket definitely suits the surroundings. It's one I forced my dad into buying me in the Spanish sales about a year or two ago, I was dying over it at the time but I've actually found that more often than not I reach for a plain coloured coat and shy away from anything 'statement'. Anyone else have that problem?

As I mentioned in my last post here I took Tuesday off so I only had a 3 day week (can I get a woop woop!) Although I am so busy at work I might have to participate in the cardinal sin of doing some work this weekend.. yuck :( I did stick to my rules of wearing something other than jeans for 2 days a week so go me!

Happy April guys! With the new month I think i'm going to do a spring clean this weekend and also use this awesome technique I found here and start tagging 'maybe' clothes in my wardrobe so I don't forget about them.


transitional dressing

Who else is officially over this crap weather we have been having? We've had snippets of Spring here and there but as soon as I think about packing away my coats 'Storm Katie' turns up *insert rolling eye emoji here*. Anyway, a gal can dream right? I've put together a wish list of what I would love to wear ASAP, get a little shoulder out.. get a little bit of toe out.. it's the perfect transitional dressing! I might need to treat myself to these sandals because I am dying for a mid heel studded black sandal. I guess the Isabel Marant sandal from years ago is still not going away? I am contemplating treating myself to these when they come back into stock but I don't know if I can handle dropping that much money on a sandal.. who do I think I am?

Hope you all had a lovely Easter! I booked today off work too so I've had a dreamy lazy day before the work officially starts again.


the shearling jacket

So i've finally got the chance to wear this awesome shearling jacket after what feels like an age. I got it in the January sales when I visited my parents in Spain but I couldn't fit it in my suitcase home.. so I had a long 6 week wait until they brought it back for me and I could whip it out.

Anyway, happy hump day! I'm heading to Copenhagen this weekend for a little city break and I couldn't be more excited! I've been so busy at work that I feel like I've never needed a holiday more (even if it's only 3 days..)

Weekday wardrobe #1

Jumper - Primark // Shirt - Mango // Jeans - River Island // Shoes - Zara // Socks - ASOS

So I thought I'd try a new series on here showing you guys what I wear to work everyday. I can wear whatever I want to work which means I sometimes end up wearing some of my favourite outfits to work and dressing pretty lazy on the weekends were I'm out and walking more (sitting at a desk for 9 hours a day is a great opportunity to wear those shoes that kill to walk in). Since I work really long hours I don't have the time to go location scouting and do a cool shoot on weeknights, so I thought this would be an easier way to show you my looks that are often lost and never shot. 

Don't get me wrong, I do often get stuck in a rut with my work clothes too (jumper, skinnies and boots anyone?) so I'm hoping this will help me to be a little more adventurous. Since I have loads of clothes I don't wear I've decided my new rule (along with the #1 rule to wear a different pair of shoes everyday) is to have at least 2 days a week were I don't wear my beloved jeans. You can see how well I stick to that! 

Anyway - let me know what you think of the post and if you guys are interested in seeing more like this? Bring on Easter when the clocks go forward and I can take all the photos on my balcony (the lighting in my lounge is awful - soz about that)

the duster coat

I'm back again in my fabulous Zara coat! I love love LOVE the length and have been searching for ages for a black and a camel version but to no avail - any tips on where to find some nice ones?? Guess I shouldn't be thinking about buying more coats considering it's now March. How is the weather still so cold?? I was actually freezing taking these photos and I only had a tiny bit of ankle out. I am not made for the cold.. 

Hope you've all had a lovely weekend and Mother's Day! No meal out for me today on account of the fact my mum lives 200 miles away, but I have spent a whole afternoon on guitar hero so you know.. swings and roundabouts.
