What I Wore Today – Drip Drip Drop Little April Showers

Each year that I see seems to go faster and faster and I find it really hard to believe that it’s actually the 14th April already. ¬†Although I obviously have lots to do I’m not too sad that it’s April because the days are getting longer now and it’s so much warmer! We’ve barely even had any April showers and I’ve already managed to spend a few days in the garden taking in the sunshine and reading a book.

I went home for a lovely relaxing week just before Easter and had an amazing time seeing all of my beautiful friends and family, drinking a little bit more than I should and just generally having a bit of fun which is exactly what I need right now with all of the stress I’ve been harbouring.

Me and Paige took these photos just before I left for my journey home and even though it wasn’t actually raining I love this coat and now that it’s getting warmer its perfect! I picked it up when I was in Paris buying my fabrics as a little treat to myself and it’s just getting warm enough to wear.

I was too excited to get home that I forgot to get my photos from Paige’s camera, so better late than never! These photos are actually from just before the Easter holidays!

What I Wore Today – Working Weekend

Much like all of my other weeks, this week has been super busy!

On Tuesday I got set an assignment to make the first toiles for my collection, within one week I have to make two dresses, a pair of trousers and a jacket. This doesn’t sound like a lot but when you take into consideration that I’ve been working two jobs four days a week it’s pretty overwhelming! I made the decision on Tuesday after being set all of this work that it was time to say goodbye to my job working at the Students Union.

With all the work I’ve been doing for Uni recently I’ve been feeling a bit exhausted so before I had work at New Look today I told myself I didn’t have to do anything, just relax a little. I let myself have a lie in, it was amazing! I’ve been rushing around so much that I’ve not really had much time to put into my appearance so as a luxury I actually did a full face of makeup this morning. It sounds really sad but I really enjoy doing my makeup. I probably shouldn’t, but I feel a lot more confident when I have really nice makeup on a day apposed to when I’m wearing none.

The dress that I wore today is one that I bought a few weeks back when I had my little splurge with my staff discount (oops!!) It’s really comfortable and I love how tailored it is. It is a bit short though and so not ideal for having to bend down and pick up hangers and clothes that have fallen on the floor. One of my favourite things when I’m working is someone coming up to me and asking where my outfit is from and being able to show it to them and then they buy it! I feel like I’m doing New Look proud!

I have work again tomorrow but I have next weekend off and I’m going home! I’m so excited to see my family and all of my lovely pets! I miss them all so much when I’m at Uni! If I’m organised enough I’ll hopefully try and write another post on my outfit tomorrow because after work I’m going to Banbury to meet one of my best friends for dinner! So excited and I want to look pretty for her! I think that treating yourself to little things like dinner out are important when you’re busy, you always need to remember to take the time to enjoy life!
