Outfit Post: 9 to 5



It's been nearly three weeks since my last outfit post and I rejoin the land of sartorial documenting with a work outfit. Poor show, Helen. Poor show. I am rather fond of this dress though and it's quickly become one of my absolute favourites to wear to work. Ruffles, spots, comfy and easy to wear. Ding ding ding, jackpot. All I need in a work outfit and more. The belt was a Topshop sale purchase and has a slight bondage-esque quality to it which is, of course, completely appropriate for a day at th'office. I'm such a boundary pusher. Ha.


A fair few people have asked to see more photographs of the house. Well, it's still not finished (and unlikely to be for some time) but I thought I'd leave the background in the photo above, rather than cropping it out like I normally do, to show a little bit of where I live. That television is both my pride and joy and my absolute downfall. Note to self: run more, sit on sofa less.

I think it's clear from these photos that I am a tired girl at the moment. I blame the following: gin, a boy, friends, insomnia and work. Not necessarily in that order.


Dress - New Look
Cardigan - Dorothy Perkins
Tights & Shoes - M&S
Belt - Topshop

I just need to say that I've read your entire blog (embarassing, but I lack things to do at work) and I want to be your best friend. Just saying.

ScienceGeek - Aww thankyou! I do love those tights. I wear them with everything, whether they go or not! x

Sarah - Hahaha, thankyou! My legs are actually one of the only bits of me that I'm totally happy with. There'll be plenty more pictures of the house coming soon x

Madison - Awww! Your comment totally just made my day. Been having a rotten time and that just cheered me right up! x

Your waist looks seriously tiny with that belt, and I think you avoid looking bondage-y (did I really say that?) by pairing it with a conservative cardigan in a neutral tone. Have fun decorating, drinking gin and hanging out with a cute boy:)

Very, very, very jealous of your legs right now.

Your house is very pretty; as is your outfit! I wish I could dress like that for work.
