Outfit: June 22nd - The Eve of Hokey Cokey Day





By the time this post goes live we will have either been out of the EU for just over a week, or nothing will have changed. The day I wore this dress though, I was just relieved that the whole thing was almost over.

Outfit: June 16th - Jeans For The Office




Strictly speaking I'm not supposed to wear jeans in my new office, but I've found I can get away with black ones so will be mixing those in to my work wardrobe on a regular basis. I paired them with my favourite burgundy blouse and some leopard flats to keep the look smart.

Outfit: June 8th - Another Striped Dress







This is a different dress to the one I wore on June 6th, I swear! What can I say, I have a problem with stripes! That dress was navy, this one is black. It was still warm by Wednesday so short sleeves and comfy pumps were a definite must-do. I took my jacket with me as I can't get my head around the fact that it will not be cold at work. My new office does not have air conditioning - hurrah! After spending the past few summers working in a fridge (and decamping to the warm garden with my laptop to escape the cold) this year I am actually being allowed to enjoy the warm weather for what it is. Warm. Turns out the jacket was a smart move though as it started raining on my way home.

Outfit: June 7th - Polka Dot Skirt






This skirt my look navy but it has tiny white polka dots on it, I promise! I was going to wear my red and white spotted skirt the morning these pictures were taken but when I put it on I just didn't love the full shape of it anymore. I think it being too big around the waist didn't help either. It was too hot to contemplate faffing with a belt so I switched it out for this pencil shape skirt instead. Do white shoes make my pasty legs look less pale?

Outfit: June 6th - Striped Dress







This dress was another of my birthday presents (my birthday that was almost two months ago now...) but this was the first time I'd worn it. I feel like it hadn't really been warm enough for this dress up to this point, but over the weekend that preceded this Monday summer hit the UK and we had wall to wall sunshine and warmth. It was delightful. The good weather continued into the working week and so Monday morning was the perfect time to debut my dress. I walk to work now so summery white pumps were fun as well as practical.

Outfit: May 30th - Bank Holiday Monday



Bank holiday Monday we headed off for a walk in the Dales with some friends, followed by a delicious meal at a pub. We had a lovely time and it was the perfect way to round off the weekend.
