What I Wore #29

Top: Topshop  |  Necklace: Topshop  |  Skirt: Topshop  |  Boots: Topshop

When I first saw this skirt in the shops I loved it, but I really wasn't keen on the whole dip hem nonsense. It really put me off buying it, I even considered whipping the sewing machine out and hacking it off. As per usual I've now totally changed my mind and I can't get enough of anything and everything with a dip hem. It's even quite fun to say isn't it.
Dip hem.
Yes, I am stupid.

The trial shift for the assistant producer job went well, I spent the day making props which happened to be for a kiddies show so involved everything glittery, fluffy and felt - good start! Then I sat in the gallery watching the live shows being produced. Today I found out I got the job so that's pretty exciting. I feel a bit odd about it though, I really enjoy working in a bar even though it's a waste of my degree and isn't what I want to do for life, I'm just really happy there and I'll miss it a lot.

What I Wore #28

Hat: H&M  |  Jumper: Topshop  |  Shorts: Vintage Levi's  |  Boots: River Island

I had an interview for an assistant producer position this week, it was my first in so long and I was pretty nervous. I think I was worrying most about what to wear (need to sort my priorities) I never know how smart I need to dress. I'm not a fan of smart clothes, I feel like I lose any sense of my personality and don't give a true impression of myself. The interview was full of all those awful generic questions like 'when have you used your initiative' ugh! I felt like I fumbled through them all, but luckily it was over quite quickly! Despite my worrying, I was called back the next day for a trial shift on Saturday, so now I'm nervous all over again.

What I Wore #27

Shirt: Zara  |  Skirt: H&M  |  Boots: River Island

So nearly a year has passed since I last posted, but as you can see it doesn't really look as though a day has passed. I deleted my blog for so many reasons but always regretted it. Lots of things have changed in my life, I'm now happily single and looking for a new job after deciding freelancing just isn't for me (although working while wearing pjs was definitely a perk). I spent a few months travelling around Asia on my own again which was brilliant, but now I'm back to reality.

What I Bought: Flower Headband

Flower Headband: Primark  |  Top: H&M

Seeing as my photographer/boyfriend has been in the highlands for the last month, I've had a wee halt on any outfit photos. Not wanting to resort back to the dreadful photos I used to take myself (new readers, that is not a cue to go looking through my archives for a good giggle) I've had to make do with another narcissistic photo of my mug, which I'm now going to attempt to disguise as a post about my love of flower headbands.

I've not actually worn this thing in public yet, and I'm not sure if I ever will. While I think it's quite adorable, and would love it on someone else, I think I'd feel like a bit of an idiot. Saying that, I am absolutely in love with the seventies trend this summer and I think the flowers might tie in well with that.

What I Wore #26

Cardi: Topman  |  Shirt: Topshop  |  Shorts: Vintage Levi  |  Bag: Vintage  |  Shoes: Kurt Geiger

I love this aran knit cardi, I had been searching for one for ages and eventually found one in Topman, and seeing as they now cater for prepubescent boys, I found a nice small one that fits really well.

In other news, I nearly got arrested last week, it's not as exciting as it sounds, but is completely ridiculous so thought I'd share. I picked my boyfriend up from the station at about 11.30pm on a Friday night, then we stopped to get a Chinese take away. On the way home I got pulled over by the police, apparently my driving looked wobbly hah! wobbly? come on! I actually think I'm a very good driver (sometimes). Anyway, I had to do a breath test, but I hadn't had a single drop to drink for days so knew I'd be fine - but I bloody wasn't! The reading said I was only just under the limit! That's right, another mug of lemsip and I've have been in the slammer! I doubt they believed me, but that's all I could put it down to; I'd been taking all sorts of medicines for my cold. I found this all very funny.
