Days 1,2 & 3!

So, I've been really lazy...kind of. I have stuck to my dressing challenge, but I forgot to take any photos yesterday or the day before - by the time I got in from work I was SO knackered that I just couldn't face it. Those of you who have me on facebook or on twitter will know that I've been invigilating exams at my local 6th form college for Tuesday and Wednesday this week, and boring as it is, it's been SUCH a long time since I actually did a 9-5 (or 8-8 in the cases of these days...) that I really struggled, I'm so old!! Anyway, so I took a photo of what I wore today while I was actually wearing it, then a la Daisy Dukes of Outfits Anonymous I put Tuesday & Wednesday's outfits on the bed, just so you can see what I wore. I haven't done them as well as she does, I'm farrr too tired (I walked from my friend's house back home today...about 5 miles. It took me an hour and a half to get home...SO tired!) to do a proper job, so sorry!
Can you kind of tell that I'm tired by the fact that this post has become a little rambling?? Also, I've just discovered (was shown by my techno-genius little brother) how to use iPhoto on my mac...I've only had it a year...!

So, firstly, here's what I wore today:

I know it seems like SO recently that I wore this dress on the blog, but I have no intentions of dressing up purely for this blog (sorry, but that's just me), and in all fairness the last time I wore this dress was the last time it was on the blog, so y'know it's not like I wear it all the time!

Dress: Esme & the Laneway's Blog Shop
Belt: Came with a dress, from H&M
Slip (not seen, but that's kind of the point!): M&S(!)
A gratuitous swirly photo, while dancing to a remix of La Roux's 'going in for the kill' (hate the song, rather like the remix, it's a good invigoration song...)

Here is what I wore yesterday, sorry the detail's not very good, I could blame Blogger for that?? Just some red crops & a white shirt. I needed to look authoritative, yet approachable for these exams - I needed to be treated like an equal by the other invigilators (they all knew that I was there cause I'm good friends with the head of performing arts...) but also look friendly to the kids doing exams.
Red crops: M&S
Blouse: Charity shop

Finally, on Tuesday I wore this skirt (which seriously needs an iron!!) and a random black tshirt that is in my 20/20 challenge list. The skirt is by Tommy Hilfiger, but I got it from TK Maxx a few months ago for £14. I forget how much it should've been, but I quite like it. It does have some shirring and a bow, but because they're in the same fabric as the skirt (duh) it doesn't show up very well in the photo...

I'm having my operation tomorrow, so there will in all likelihood be a BIG gap in posting for a while...possibly a week? Sorry. I'll still be reading, but I won't be able to take any photos, due to not being able to walk haha!

Currently listening to: Lived in Bars by Cat Power.

Sorry if this post is all rambly, I am hitting the hyper/tired wall right about now...


  1. oh wow, you look really tired. But pretty. I like your dress :)

    I hope your surgery goes perfectly and you are able to get some rest.

    Invigilators! That sounds painful :D

  2. things are going ok thanks! a bit painful at times, but generally ok. A bit boring - I was told by a family friend who's a nurse today that I might've been walking around too much! So I need to rest a bit more...yawn. And I have loads of ideas for blog posts, but I don't want to bore people with stuff, so i've just been reading really, gaining inspiration from other people.
    Phew, essay over: How's things with you?
