A big part of me is thinking how the fuck can it be Monday again already?! and yet there another part of my brain which is thinking that last Monday seems like a very long time ago indeed as this past week has been a little crazy. I've got a LOT of things going on this week, so at the moment my life seems to be one big To Do list. Starting to stress out about the prospect of a week away as well, I don't know that I can afford to spend a week away from work and all the things I need to do.

I picked this coat up a couple of months ago now, when M+S had some of their 20% off vouchers, and then put it away until the weather turned a bit colder and kind of forgot about it, so this was it's first wear. I really like it though and can see it being a new favourite for the winter months.

This skirt was another thing I've had hanging about for a while waiting to be worn. I chose it from George a little while back as I was really drawn to the muted check pattern, but it's a little shorter than the skirts I'd usually go for, so bare legs and heels were out. Kind of like the dressed down office look, though.

The weekend was a funny one, with a concert on Friday night which turned out to be better than expected. A strange day on Saturday, a totally random evening out with some new friends. I felt a little out of my depth with all the bike chat, but was able to geek out about Twin Peaks to my heart's content. Here's to some more crazy times - there have to be plenty more 60th birthday parties to crash!

How was your weekend? I think I might be getting a cold, which I totally don't have time for.

  1. I love this outfit! The coat is a great colour on you, I'm always surprised by what a great combination green and pink is.

  2. Sounds like you need a week off work if you're worrying about having a holiday anyway! Just force yourself not to check your emails why you're away, and with the whole 'end of relationship' thing you definitely need some time to chill out! xxx

    1. Yeah, perhaps you're right. It's for a work conference so I'll be forced to work for some of it.

  3. I love your outfit and I PATICULARLY love your bike (I'm actually obsessed with sit-up-and-beg bicycles, I treat my own better than my boyfriend) so I am going to follow you now....

    Have a nice day :)

  4. Sounds like you need a break.
    Your skirt is lovely. I'm with you - the shorter the skirt, the lower the heel.

    1. Sometimes I find that black tights make me a little more confident about the length of skirts, but sometimes not. I guess it depends how I feel.

  7. Great coat, love the skirt!
    In the past I find I make loads of new friends when I break up with someone. You seem quite chipper about it anyway.

    1. Yeah, I'm OK about it, really. It was the right decision and my decision to end it.
