Listening to: Bathwater- No Doubt.

Monday I started my first ever full time permanent job!

So maybe I have worked since I was 15...

...So maybe I put myself through uni working on the wards then 2 part time jobs....

...So maybe I've worked for an agency doing 45 hour weeks for the last two years....

...So maybe this job is now a massive cut in hours and pay....

.... the fact it's my first ever full time permanent job makes it feel like my first ever job :) I'm a big girl now!

Things obviously fell apart straight away- ha ha ha. Nothing of which was my fault but I've been staying late far too much (I'm nearly at a day off in time owing).

At the moment I'm tucked up in a duvet trying to plan my evening- I want to do something relaxing as I'm having a girls night out tomorrow. Plus I'm determined to get back onto track with blogging and going to spend time this weekend getting on top of outfits posts I've had planned. The first of which is this look I wore to my boyfriends gig. It's something comfortable and warm I threw on after work (really my hair is a mess under that beanie).

Dress: Gift
Scarf: H&M (mens)
Hoodie: Primark
Bag: River Island
Oversized Denim Jacket: Charity Shop (similar here)
Lipstick: MAC (similar here)

I'm a massive fidget when taking outfit photos the first couple are always of me moving- but for once my fidgeting came out well with the first photo :)

I know the tartan phase is a little old but I love this orange scarf! I think it compliments my hair in a strange way and brightens up this all black look.

I'm not sure I would suit black lipstick but this dark  plumb from MAC is pretty close. I might give it a go with eyeliner and some gloss and see what my lips are like black.

The dress was a birthday present from my twin sister and look at my boobs in it! I love it- although perhaps not appropriate when your going to a gig with your boyfriends dad and trying to point out your boobs to your boyfriend and his band mates while there on stage.

They're beautiful.

There's something about a velvet skater dress which just makes you feel like a million dollars. Mine was a gift but Missguided sell an almost exact replica, plus this amazing high neck version (!) And cut out skater dress.
