The Work Week's Outfits in Instagram #4 & Aussie Surprise!

With this week’s weather being as indecisive as I am at the MAC lipstick counter, my outfits have once again been dictated to by the threat of rain more than just what suited my mood that particular morning. With the breezes from Siberia and random downpour, the winter wardrobe was dragged back out, but with trepidation I tried to style it a little differently – shorter dresses/tunics with leggings, rather than just my usual tights. I have to say that I am actually liking the mix of shorter dresses/tops with leggings rather than just wearing plain old tights with dresses, it gives my outfits a bit more of a relaxed feel but still smart enough for work. I also debut my new Dorothy Perkins floral dress this week which was another eBay bargain that has sparked my eBay addiction all over again.

In other news, with trepidation, I have began wearing heels again at work. By no means are they my sky-scraper heels that I wore when working in London, but it is nice to not be wearing pumps constantly and give myself that bit of added height - always helps when a Year 8 student is at my eye level. 

Finally, I came home on Friday after a strenuous day at the salt mines, to the most gorgeous surprise from the lovely ladies at Aussie:

It arrived at the perfect time and I felt truly grateful/spoilt to be an Aussie Angel! I have already begun using the Leave-In conditioner to soften my hair, plus make it smell heavenly and have plans for the mini Aussie bottles for weekends when I am staying at the boyfriends. Unfortunately, I am unable to get involved in the Aussie Summer Sizzle Party this time as I'm swamped with work and disappearing across Ireland & Yorkshire, but cannot wait to see the other entries!

Last note - I am selling two pairs of lovely shoes that I sadly do not wear - one pair is brand new from Dorothy Perkins in its box, and one is almost new from New Look. If you fancy having a peek, click HERE.

How do you feel about leggings? What sort of shoe style do you go for - pumps or heels? And what do you think of the Aussie Summer Style?



  1. Nice outfits :) I live in leggings/tights with skirts and dresses. Yay for the Aussie stuff - lucky you :) xx

  2. The Dorothy Perkins dress looks lovely! The weather has been playing havoc with my summer outfit choices, sad to say that I am still wearing tights. The Aussie delivery was definitely a highlight of the week! x

  3. Wow, what an amazing Aussie surprise! I'm gutted I don't have time for the latest Aussie campaign :(
