Cowl neck and checks...

Heading into work on a Monday is difficult at the best of times but knowing that the heating won't kick in until later in the day makes it much more difficult. Ideally I would be able to wear pyjamas but until duvets are compulsory workwear, slouchy jumpers are going to have to do. I have been wearing a lot of  mini skirts to work recently (see here, here and here for proof!) they are just so easy to wear and add a bit of personality to my boring functional jumpers. This skirt has been in my wardrobe for just over 2 years now and I have been wearing it a lot recently, it really comes into its own paired with cosy jumpers and thick tights, it's just too short to wear with bare legs or nude tights! This top was a jumper dress but somehow I managed to shrink it in the wash so it now moonlights as a jumper - you can't beat a good cowl neck!

Top: George at ASDA, skirt: ASOS, tights: Tesco, boots: Nine West, moon face: model's own
I could have really done with some brighter lipstick with this outfit, I didn't realise just how pale I was! Admittedly the bright light isn't helping but I have been kinda ghostly recently, I need some sunshine! My hair is getting really out of control recently too, I am seriously tempted to just chop it all off like this, what do you think? The last time I went this short was back in 2010 but I am due a change I think!

These boots are nearly 8 years old now (which is all kinds of crazy!) and they get comfier with each year that passes. I did think I was going to have to retire them at one point as I completely wore through the sole and I even bought a replacement pair but luckily my local cobbler is a genius and managed to resurrect then for me! 

Which old favourites do you keep going back to?

I love this wifey!

I have a dress from Motel that has seen me through my weight highs and lows whilst remaining flattering. I'll never part with it! xx

I love that you saved this shrunken dress, it looks cute with the skirt! I definitely think you could rock Audrey Tautou hair. :)

It's great when you rediscover something which you've had and loved for years, isn't it?

Loving this mini skirt! Such a cute look Maria. I have a couple of pairs of boots that have been saved by a cobbler (thank goodness) x

So good that you managed to salvage your boots- and I agree- I wish pyjamas were work appropriate!

Lovely outfit, I really wish I could pull off tartan!

Hey team pale! Join the club, we can be pale and interesting together! I am adoring that skirt, the colour of plaid is lovely and very unusual!
