Neutral

Sorry about the terrible facial expression- the cat meowed just before I took the photo and I was desperate to keep a straight face. He always follows me around when I get back from work so often ends up in photos. I went to Primark recently and had to restrain myself slightly (their prices have definitely gone up! Dresses all around £11-15 apart from a flimsy summer dress, cardis around £13!). However I did buy this cute necklace and several pairs of patterned tights. I still prefer the idea of them than actually wearing them- even with these fairly sober ones I felt like I had to wear quite neutral coloured clothes.. (that's water stains on my dress by the way, I know it looks a bit silly). The top is Topshop, the skirt American Apparel and it's always the same New Look shoes!
I'm beyond happy to be going to Berlin again on Thursday, to get away from work! My boss seems to be giving more and more responsibilities and tasks to my colleague who supposedly does the same job as me, and is even sort of taking some away from me! Whenever I've said anything I get accused of jealousy (which feels quite demeaning really). I'm only trying to be fair. Anyway, hopefully hopefully something better will turn up soon...

Evil cat face when you stroke him the wrong way.

This looks like the perfect start to the day. We've still been eating our meals in near darkness (well with the light in the corridor on and three candles lit), but the light switch should be fixed today!

  1. Your tights are lovely, how fun you get to go to Berlin! That is a bit rubbish of your boss, maybe ask them if they need any help? Hate that kind of thing :)

  13. Your cat in that first photo!

    I'm the same when it comes to patterned tights. I love them in theory and buy them buy the bulk, but I hesitate to wear them because of the boldness.

    I love that you paired them with the lace top-- you are a gem.

  15. I'm so jealous you're going to Berlin. I like your outfit, it looks lovely. I laughed when I read your "about me" and the "dull dull profession." At least you make it fun with your outfits and accessories. :)
