Hello! A girl came into work the other day wearing a similar outfit and I adored it so much that I had to replicate it myself. I know it’s not exactly the most complex or inspired of looks, but it was a nice reminder that often simple is best and I think it’s what suits me best. Plus I had just got that thin knit from H&M and wanted to wear it…

I had been wanting those boots since they came into work all the way back in August (and from seeing them on bloggers for what feels like years!), so I decided to eventually get them. £155 down to £49 is a bargain I couldn’t exactly say no to! They’re so insanely narrow though and I’m gonna have to do the lovely thing of stretching them out, which is always the downside of new boots!

Ramblings aside, I’m back at work today after a reasonably productive weekend off. Four full 8-9hr shifts lie between me and a long weekend in the Lake District, which I am both looking forward to and dreading at the same time. I could walk for miles around a lovely city, but the idea of hiking around some hills in the cold is making me want to cry ever so slightly. I’m sure I’ll be fine though. Maybe. Probably.
