The moral is

Dress: H n M//Collar: Asos//Tights: Mytights.com// Shoes: UO//Satchel: Dorothy Perkins

The moral of the story is, take photos outside! And check out the dent in our nice new floor, courtesy of D dropping a drill on it!

Definitely getting excited about finishing work tomorrow. Mat (the one who wrote the lovely email) won't be in, which means only Brice will be, which means he will either forget it's my last day, or buy some Diet Coke and apple juice to celebrate my 20 months of loyal service..

I think I'm going to write a list of things to do or achieve, otherwise I probably will go mad. Aside from job searching I need to tidy, and bake, and write, and draw, and go out, and volunteer. And fly to Mexico? £500 return- that's a lot of saving to do.

Soo I'm thinking of going to the #LDNbloggermeet, although I've never done anything like it before, and I'm worried it'll be awkward as no one will know me or my little blog. Does anyone else ever worry about that? Like "So erm, what's your blog called again" (embarrassed) "Cold Knees" (blank face) Oh, ok..

  4. I love the cute collar teamed with your dress.
    HAHA, well fingers crossed you get some diet coke then. Save the boozing celebrations for home once you are free - I am actually so jealous I would love to take some time out and do more important things.
    Oh, the bloggers meet sounds fun and of course people would know your blog. xx

  5. Gorgeous outfit, so smart & chic! I love the shoes too, don't think I've ever seen anything like them :). Good luck searching for jobs :D & I think you should go to the blogger meet; even if people don't know your blog then they will by the end of the day!x

  6. You are probably going to get a million comments saying this, but you look very Alexa Chung in these photos!!!
    Good luck with the job hunting, hope your last day at work ends quickly and that you manage to slip out the door without having to ever deal with those people again :)

  10. Adorable outfit! You can't go wrong with Dorothy Perkins and H&M!

  11. i can't believe how lovely you can make a simple black dress look with just the addition of a collar!

    Also, your blog is far from little! You should definitely go to the meet-up because I doubt it will be awkward to begin with (surely no-one is going to know everyone else?!) and by the end of the day you'll make some fabulous friends! Besides, it's not your blog that is meeting up, its YOU and I daresay you're quite a personable lady :)

  17. I love your shoes and tights! I'm super glad it is your last day, it has been a long time coming! I hope you achieve all your goals in the time between job hunting which is super depressing. I'm filling my time with hotel inspector... I am getting super lots of traffic from your blog so thank you very much!! And of course people will know your blog, if my increase in traffic is down to you, you must be pretty popular! xxxxx

  24. Wowzer! Loving this outfit, beautiful detailing to the collar. I feel a little like that when I think of blogger meet-ups, but when I hear people write about them they say how welcomed they were by others which is comforting!

    Haha packing for english holidays does involve wellies usually :P I hear the weather is going to absolute pants but I'm still going to have a paddle in the sea!

  25. ah! You look amazing in that pretty simple dress. You should def go to the meetup, i was all shy when I met a fellow blogger for the first time but after a few minutes it was super fun!

  46. Great tights! Loving this look. Congrats on your last day of the job, the closing of a door and opening of a window :)

    I know what you mean about being nervous about blog meet ups, I've only been to two blog events and I was SOO nervous. But once I took the plunge and just introduced myself to people, it was fine, everyone was so nice! Nobody had heard of my blog, but it didn't matter, its a great way of discovering new blogs :)
