Addicted to shopping

A couple of work OOTD's for you...and both feature the same skirt, albeit in different colours.

This skirt was one of my REISS new season purchases. As soon as I left the preview event held a couple of weeks ago I mentally planned to get the gorgeous red dress (mission accomplished) and maybe some new work-friendly clothes. Nothing like new clothing to motivate a work day! That reads terribly but at the same time, oh so true.

I love this skirt style. The high waist, the concealed zip, the gentle flare and the addition of pockets. It's flattering, doesn't crease even after sitting for hours and works in both hot weather and cold (with opaque tights). I bought it in a neutral shade that will go with everything other than my pale skin and black.

Here it is in action. Apologies for the boring background for my OOTD's lately. I find the self-timer malarkey way less embarrassing than asking a friend/loved one! :)

I will leave you with my latest ASOS purchase.

There were other items that came in the most recent delivery but most of them left me feeling duped by misleading photography and catwalk shows. This little coin purse from New Look however made me smile.

I love coin purses. Rebecca Minkoff's have always caught my eye because of the quirky messages. New Look have clearly ripped this off and the end result is a purse that feels more
-ette than leather but that's what you get when you spend less than £4. It's my new favourite thing :) Link!

See you soon...probably tomorrow with a little makeup post!


  1. I saw the title of this post and thought, "oh, now here is something I can relate to!" The skirt suits you so well and I love red lipstick on you!


  2. Both of the skirts look really lovely on you. I am sure you can also wear them on a non working day. To me they are the perfect lenght as I don't like super short skirts, they make my legs look bigger than they are, haha


  3. Ah, a perfect skirt for a pear shaped gal! Love it!!

  29. i never thought i'd love work wear as much as these skirts! unfortunately my days of having to dress smartly for sixth form are over and with university's relax to feel to what you can wear, i don't have to look for things like this. however, i doubt that will stop me lusting over them! they're such classic shapes and lengths! i really like the belt and blue shirt too - they're gorgeous! loving that coin purse! i think this should be a part of every girl's possessions! ;) X
