Heigh ho, heigh ho

It's off to work we go! I'd say I have a job, but that's basically a lie - what I have is a week volunteering my help in filing and tea-making, but it's close right? I'll feel kinda like a proper grown up anyway, living in my flat, working 9-5, wearing lovely fashionable business attire...

That last bit is what I'm babbling about today, because I've come to the conclusion that, much as I adore my clothes, they're not generally law firm appropriate. Well, some of my vast collection of dresses might be, but I don't want to push it on my first day! So it's off to buy blazers and things we go!

Here's a couple of things on my 'I'm a serious corporate lawyer (lol, jk I'm an 18, sorry, 19 year old who likes pretty clothes)' wishlist.

Black Zip Trousers
£19.99 - Sadly, out of stock, but I want something similar. I tried  couple of pairs like this on way back in February when my parents came to visit, but none of them looked great, so I live in hope for the perfect pair.

H&M Pink Blazer
£14.99 - What can I say, I just want one. I have a gorgeous black Zara dress that's actually work appropriate, and this would just liven it up  with a bit of a kick. And I could wear it over the summer too and, well, it's just rather lovely.

H&M Sand Jacket
£29.99 - Okay, more expensive, but it's a bit of a classic. And I'm so excited about teaming it with such a simple outfit, like the one in the image, if the weather ever gets that good.

 Blue Palm Print Dress
£35 - I just love it. These dresses are my thing. I couldn't love them more if I tried. I can but pray it won't be typically too short to wear in a more formal environment. Alas, it probably will be.

So that's a little snippet of the sort of things I'll hopefully be picking up in the next few weeks. A bit excessive for a single week? Probably, but then, I can wear them all again... right... XD

What would you wear for a week as a corporate lawyer? Do you have any fabulous suggestions for my wardrobe (please do!). Tell me all!

Pinch, punch...

...first of the month, and all that :p

I accept that, as usual, I have fallen off the blogging bandwagon. (Why does this always happen!) But, first of the month, a pretty layout overhaul and a lot of sunshine has inspired me to start over. Well, at least come back, I won't be doing anything so drastic as deleting all my old posts or anything this time. That would be incredibly over-dramatic, and anyone who knows me knows I'm anything but over-dramatic. Pause for gales of laughter by anyone who does actually know me. Ahem.

You'll all, I'm sure, be pleased to know that I've finished all my end of year essays, way in advance, so I'm currently sat around, waiting to go home on Thursday, filling my time with trashy tv, shopping and generally relaxing. I might try this productivity thing more often, the free, unstressed, time it gives you is fantastic :p

I've also got my eye on a camera tripod, which will hopefully lead to more lovely things like outfit posts, which I've also wanted to do, but never managed before. I have major respect for all these people who manage o take decent ones in a mirror or with their iphone. Suffice to say, I cannot, and all attempts have been consigned to the untouchable graveyard of immediately deleted photos. But soon! Hopefully. Especially as I've been buying lots of new clothes lately, and do feel like people should share my excitement about this!

So yes, expect to see more musings on my life over the coming months. I'm hoping to do a lot baking (read: revision procrastination) over the Easter holidays, so the 'lifestyle' parts of the blog may become a bit of a 'Look! Cakes! More cakes!' overload, which will be terribly fun, but hopefully not as fun as actually making and eating them. I do apologise to anyone on a diet.

And, because I like pretty pictures, but can't take them myself (yet!), I'll just leave you with a pretty picture of some daffodils, to celebrate Spring.
