polka dots & blazers



Blazer: Sunnygirl
Dress: Sportsgirl
Necklace: Christmas present
Shoes: Dorothy Perkins

I'm sorry that my last two outfit posts have also involved the wearing of this blazer, I JUST REALLY LIKE IT OKAY?!! It's a pretty colour and it is a good length and it has stripey turned-up sleeves and aaahhh. Favourite. I've been wearing it over the top of this polka dot dress a lot lately. It is swishy and girly and is a good mood generator. Also my owl necklace makes jingly noises. Jingle jingle. I think this is my favourite kind of outfit to wear - a cute little dress with a blazer over the top. Bonus points if it includes oxfords and animal-related jewellery. I can't wait until winter (for all the five weeks it lasts for, boohoo) so I can throw on some tights and a scarf as well. And perhaps even this or this. Am I a human or mythical creature? Nobody will ever know.

My last post saw me complain about my lack of work. I write to you now as a professional employed woman! Well, maybe not very professional, or a woman* (ohoho now you're confused aren't you?), but definitely employed. I got a job as an usher at one of the main concert venues in my city, which I think will be pretty cool. Free concert watching! Hurray! I start training next week. I'm quite looking forward to it as I haven't had much to do these holidays, but I'm sure as soon as I start back at work/uni I will be having a perpetual whinge about how much I want to go back to doing nothing. Aaahh, the woes of a lazy person.

Hope you're having a good week. Farewell!

*Just kidding. I just wanted you to read an entire paragraph with a small amount of uncertainty. What a joker I am!

  17. You're wishing for Winter whilst I am dreaming of the sun! Don't get me wrong, I am loving the snow, but going out is so much effort wearing so many layers!

    Congrats on the job, getting to watch free shows sounds like pretty cool way to spend your work hours!

    1. Thanks! Yessss hurry up winter. We don't get any badass snow like you though! I agree with you about layering, it is super annoying, especially when you walk into a shopping centre and they've set the temperature to a million degrees!

  19. Whaaaat owl madness! Brilliant! I used to have one a bit like that, although sadly some nasty person stole it when I was at a club about a year ago, so enjoy that bad boy for both of us! Also congrats on the job, that sounds crazy-awesome. I'm well jel :)

  20. I'm totally jealous of your job! While living in Vegas and going to shows at the House of Blues, I always wished I could be one of the ushers that didn't have to spend the $50 I just did to see that band. You lucky duck!
    And who cares if you've worn that blazer twice or 50 million times! If you love something, wear it often! hehe I also have an owl necklace, actually two of them, similar to the one you're wearing. :)
    Ooooh and those unicorn beanie hat thingys are super awesome!!!

    If I had that blazer I'd wear it every day, it's such a stunning colour and I LOVE it with the polka dots <3

  24. I wish I was a mythical creature. Unicorns don't take shit from nobody. Sigh. :-( Lovely outfit, if I'd have that blazer I would probably never stop wearing it either! And congrats on the job! :-)

  31. I'm not surprised that you've worn this blazer in the last to outfit posts, it's gorgeous... if it magically goes missing from your wardrobe... it wasn't me... *shifty eyes*. In all seriousness... you look gorgeous! xx

  32. girl you rock the blazers, but that i have already told you.

    by the way can u do me an immense favor?
    by the way i have the chance to collaborate with boticca.com a jewellery brand but to do that i need to send them traffic by my blog, and this can happen only if people click on the boticca.com link i provide in my newest post, just click nothing more. it would mean the world to me if you just clicked on the link, it would be so helpful since i don't have hundreds of fans to help me out.
    i JUST NEED YOU TO CLICK ON THE LINK OF BOTICCA.COM THE ONE I PROVIDE AND THAT'S ALL. no purchase, nothing else u have to do.

  47. haha dont worry I wear the same things over and over... although my shoe choice in today's post was actually determined solely (tehe) by the fact that the ones I had on 1st had made too many blog appearances. Congrats on the job- always so stressful finding work! Cute color combo here as well :)
