Good things come to those who wait

I am in love with all things red, so when I saw the gorgeous ladies Rachel from A dress is for life and Mhairi from Lilybobombs, sporting this Simply Be beauty before Christmas, it was immediately on my lust list.

However, the price pretty much stopped me from buying it, £68 for a jersey dress seemed a bit steep. I spent hours trawling  the internet for something similar, but nothing came close. Then it was reduced so I bought it, but it was a bit too small so I sent it back with the intention of ordering another size, when I spotted the same dress, for a fraction of the price, here... it was fate.

The dress is a stunning colour and pretty much lived up to all of my expectations. It's very booby, which for work wasn't overly appropriate, hence the safety pin, but it's so soft and lovely to wear, perfect to brighten up the most miserable of February days. With my specs on, I feel a bit sexy Secretary....

Skirting around

I've become a massive fan of pencil skirts of late. They are so easy to wear and look fairly smart for the office, plus these tube skirts are pretty comfy too. With that in mind, I've just ordered these 2 beauties from Simply Be. A snip at £18 each plus 10% off!

Excuse the worse than usual photo's, I've been trying to get my hubby to be my photographer, but by the time we both get home from work, I resemble someone who's been dragged backwards through a large hedge.

So here is what I've pretty much been living in for work of late. I can't rave enough about these tights from Yours, I am really hoping they bring out more colours as they are by far the best tights I've tried in a long time. I urge you to try them.
