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!

Challenge 2015 – What I Wore Today – Confessions of a Spendaholic

One of the challenges I’ve set myself for this year is to document more of my personal style. I thought there was no better place to start that somewhere so public as my blog!

This outfit is actually from yesterday, Tuesday 13th January, but I still wanted to share it!

I didn’t have much planned with my day, I was just going to uni to meet with my tutor but I’d bought a new top over Christmas and I wanted to debut it! There is no better feeling for me than wearing new clothes, so I wanted hair to match. I think I spend far too much time getting ready in the mornings which usually leads to me being late (oops).

Admittedly, the outfit I’m wearing here I did buy before I wrote my resolutions post, but I had said in my mind ‘no clothes this year’ but the fact that I went out and bought a brand new Urban Decay eye shadow palette on Monday can not be excused.

I wanted the Urban Decay Shadow Box before I bought the Naked Palette last week but they didn’t have it in the Southampton store, so naturally I spent £15 more instead of waiting to get to Coventry to see if they had it there.

Of course, when I went into the store in Coventry, they had the Shadow Box palette so I had to have it. Fortunately I have a very lovely mother who bought it for me, but that is still £59 just on eye shadow in under two weeks. I’m terrible! But I LOVE it!
