Red shoes, No knickers



January 2012



First day back

I’ve never been one of those people who on their first day back at school/Uni/work, from the Christmas holidays, turns up in all their new presents/sale items/stolen siblings clothes.  I have always liked to save my new wares and gently filter them into my wardrobe over time.  Slowly introduce them to the world.

‘Oh is that new?’ Tim would ask me in March

‘This old thing!  I’ve had it a while’ I’d reply

Having said that I couldn’t resist wearing my new light grey sweat from American Apparel on my first day back at work.

{vintage coat from rokit, gifted scarf and checked shirt, american apparel sweater, hobbs pencil skirt, tights, office heels, orla kiely bag}

Over the last week I had been out of the house just 4 times and I wanted to keep that snuggly warm feeling I’d been experiencing.  Not being able to wear elasticated pants and no make-up when venturing into town I knew I’d have to make some sort of effort and teamed it with my favourite pencil skirt {Also worn here and here}

I’m totally in love with my new joomp and have plans for wearing it with big necklaces, cute brooches, for a weekends away in the countryside!  Talk about versatile….I can’t get enough of it.  Very happy with my new staple….Defo a michael winner…Along with The Gorilla, expect to see more of her!
