I've realised that in the last few weeks my posts have become slightly less personal (and there has been no DIY projects what so ever!). This is due to the fact that my working life (which you may remember is full time student nurse/ part time agency care worker) was AWFUL!
I had my last ever student nurse placement (which I should never have had to go on if not for the incompetence of my university losing 2 years worth of skill work- and yes they did lose it, not me). After being promised an amazing acute area I went into a private care home (dull dull dull- and almost impossible to have all my skills completed) that had the worst case of hospital politics I have ever encountered.
I quickly grew tired having to explain to one or another of the staff both sides of the argument and why I felt that it was a simple misunderstanding- why constantly being asked to take a side over the simplest or arguments ("she said this, she said that, blah blah blah") when I mention something I feel is a cause of concern I'm told "that's the treatment we give on the ward" (but the Marsden manual and NICE say otherwise!). IT WAS AWFUL!!!! I felt completely and utterly alone.
But now it is FINALLY over! and I can go back to my normal life- and earn some money again (as I said goodbye to all my holiday pay and saved shifts). I have a lot of planned posts (outfit and DIY) and who knows what else I will think of- and am just generally putting a lot of effort into blogging (I hope you enjoy it).
This is the outfit I wore to my appointment with the gynaecologist (which ended up being a waste of time as he didn't seem remotely interested in what I had to say and I have no idea what he was telling me- it sounded like he said I had one thing than I didn't).
Crop Top: Topshop
Belt: New Look
Necklace: eBay (similar here)
Shoes: Charity shop (originally American Eagle).
I wanted to share this outfit as not only did I feel AMAZING in it- I honestly thought I should be on a catwalk- but also the last time I shared my vintage skirt I had a few comments saying they wished they had it. Now I have found similar products!!
The vintage first pick in from ASOS Marketplace and looks scarily similar- only in a beautiful navy blue, but although it has the cute slit in the side it doesn't come as high as my skirt and so I feel a lot more wearable (read: less likely to shown your knickers). The second vintage maxi is also from ASOS Marketplace, and is very very beautiful! Look at the length! The final skirt is from Boohoo and oh my! It looks like a carbon copy! (Its even styled like I wore my skirt to a wedding in a previous post). The cut looks like it was from the same mold (very wiggle skirt shaped) and has a slit up the side- although once again not as high! HOW HAVE I NOT SEEN THIS BEFORE!!! They also had it in berry -which I wish I had snapped up :,(
I really feel like I have excelled in my search this time- and I do hope that all my outfit piece searches are helpful (as I haven't heard any feedback).
