After spending Monday to Wednesday training returning back to work yesterday was a welcome relief. It was dull but it's not over yet, as I spent this afternoon applying for new courses and perhaps starting a cheeky new degree/ qualification.

It was nice to lose the uniform and spend a little more time in my nice clothes.

This is what I wore Monday I did start the day with my hair up but I unwisely bought caffeine (forgot to order decaffeinated mocha and nearly ripped my hair out) so it ended up in a messy bun (my first and last messy bun).

T-shirt: Very old Sonic Youth tee 
Leather Look Skirt: Boohoo
Tights and snood: Primark
Leg warmers: Claire's
Oversized Denim Jacket: Charity Shop
Flatforms: Office
Belt: New Look 
Lipstick: Barry M

I woke up Monday feeling a bit ill (it's the 4th or 5th cold I've caught this year) so dressed for comfort. Nothing says comfort like a tee my boyfriend no longer wears (he bought in in his early teens mentioned it was a little too baggy and didn't have a choice but to give it to me), a oversized jacket and snood. I'm always more comfortable in a skirt or dress so paired it with my all time favourite skirt from Boohoo.

For footwear I picked my office flatforms which I've pretty much been living in them the last few weeks. Especially with the added ankle warmth of leg warmers :) I have told myself that I need to start wearing my other shoes (looking at the ootd I have ready to post) but I love them!

I've also fulfilled my wish of owning a skinny leopard print belt :) I feel like I've been looking for one for about 10 years and always struggled that either the buckle was "all wrong" or usually not in my size. I've got a normal sized waist but I could only ever find a belt in a small :(

I bought my belt from New Look and its perfect- I really can't fault New Looks belt they're just the right amount of flexible, long lasting and faux leather. But it's not the only one on the market (whoop) the second is from H&M and the third is from River Island (but a bit more expensive).
