Skirt: Primark// Top: Topshop//Belt: Vintage//Shoes: UO

I'm boringly always wearing these shoes now. Although I learnt my lesson earlier when I spilt red nail varnish on them..
So, I've finally finished working at Sextant Properties. Obviously it was a bit of an anti climax, although lunch was rather nice with sirloin steak in peppercorn and cognac sauce, accompanied by a glass of red and a Dark n Stormy cocktail.. The afternoon passed by in a bit of a haze, let's say. My send off involved Diet Coke and Apple juice, and left over Doritos.


I bought this camera at a car boot sale for 50p, hoping it works, although my mum was a little dismayed that I was buying yet another camera. I ordered some prints off Etsy, there is so much I could buy from that website..

  11. 50p for a camera, bloody hell that is fantastic. My mum is always like you don't need more clothes, bags, blah, blah, blah. Goes in one ear out the other with me, he he.
    I bet you breathed a great sigh of relief after your last day at work. It will feel strange the first few days me dear, but it will pass. I had the same experience this year meself.

  16. Love this combination, the skirt has such a ladylike quality & the top is a great mix of prints.
    I wear the same shoes pretty much all the time, I'm loyal what can I say.
    I'm pleased I'm not the only one who's no good at ironing, I feel a bit better now :)
    P.s Those prints are gorgeous xo
