what weekends are for

Cute grey floral dress with over the knee boots

Quick post with last night’s outfit!  New dress so why not. 😀  This one was a lucky find from the remnants of the New Look January sales that I literally bought yesterday afternoon and wore last night.  Was marked down to £11 on the label but must have been marked down again as it went through at £7, which I’m obviously not complaining about!  I haven’t been shopping or bought anything in quite a while so it was nice to have a browse after work in the morning.  Work was actually such a laugh this time; one particularly sassy 4 year old kept cracking us up and the whole class seemed to be in a cute mood.  Always a good thing when there are about 30 of them to try to arrange into a straight line!

A group of us went to watch a panto performance that one of my best friends and a couple of other people we knew were in last night, and went out for dinner beforehand and out again afterwards too.  Made a full night out of it. 🙂  The panto thing is so much funnier when you know the players, and safe to say a few in jokes had us literally (and I do mean literally) cackling and crying in the audience.  It’s one of those things that when you try to describe afterwards, doesn’t seem funny in the slightest, but at the time I was near enough wetting myself!

One outdoor #OOTD shot before we gave up!  The wind was seriously thwarting any attempts to have either half decent hair or a skirt that didn’t blow up every 2 seconds, so an impossible task not worth bothering with.  #bloggerproblems.  Still really like the dress though!  I probably wouldn’t wear a cutesy floral piece without something from the other end of the spectrum to balance it out (aka boots and black), but I think I pitched it about right for a Saturday night.  Short clompy boots and tights for during the day and I’ll be fine, hopefully into spring too.  Not bad for a rifling through the last of the messy sale racks find!

Hope you’re all enjoying your weekend so far!  It feels weird to be posting on a Sunday morning, Sunday nights are like ritual bloggy time with #lbloggers chat and everything, especially in winter.  I’m yet to establish a proper routine anyway though so I guess it doesn’t matter!  After being out for most of yesterday I’ve quite the to-do list to tackle today, trying to get a little bit ahead and next week’s gonna be a busy one too.  Wish me luck!

    Lovely dress, what a bargain! One of my friends was in a panto a few years ago and I agree, it’s even funnier when you know someone in it! Good luck with your to do list!

      Thanks Hannah! It’s the first panto I’ve been to since we went on yearly trips with primary school, and I’m really glad I went!
      To-do list is going fairly well so far 😛

    Love that dress! I think that sometimes you can find some great bargains in the New Look sales! A few years ago I was able to pick up an AX Paris dress for £5! It had been reduced from £30! I think you styled it quite well, and I love the boots you are wearing with it!

      It was marked down to £11 so was a nice surprise to find it was only £7! Gotta hunt these bargains out!

    I love your dress a lot! You really got lucky with the bargain 😉 Also, thank you for being honest about the affiliate links! I hate those bloggers who seem to desperately need money and pile up a dozen of “buy a similar item here” link without mentionning they get some pennies from it… I mean, this is great to be able to get some money by posting what you love and all, but by hiding that, I feel like those persons are making money off us innocent readers. I have no idea if that is something commonplace amongst UK blogging community but in France a lot of fashion or beauty bloggers are “ommiting” mentionning affiliations. Not cool.
    Then again, thanks for your honesty! 🙂 Hope you managed through your to-do list! xx

      Thank you! I thought it best to be open and honest, I’ve no desire to hide it if I do make a penny or two! I think it’s really obvious anyway when bloggers include a list of ‘items you could buy’ or whatever anyway so didn’t see the point. I’m glad the honesty is appreciated! 😀
