Berry nice

Dress: asos
Cardigan: Matalan
I'm sorry I look so glum in these photos.  To be fair I look pretty glum in most of my photos but these ones are worse than normal.  I struggle having my photo taken, I just feel like an idiot.  At least I am able to look at the camera now, baby steps.

I had a lovely relaxing weekend ready for my first full week back in the office.  It's going to be a killer.  I've been gently broken into my new role and 2011 with a four day week followed by three days out of the office the following week 'working' (delayed Christmas party due to the snow) so it's going to be a shock to the system.  I still don't really know what my new role will entail as I have been asked to write my own job description but I am really looking forward to a change.  I've had a fair few changes since I started working there almost 14 years ago but I am ready for a bigger challenge and it's is great to feel appreciated. 

I decided to wear something nice and colourful today to inject a bit of cheer into the routine.  I love this dress, it's such a nice colour and fits really nicely.  What I don't like though was the matching underdress that it came with... so tight! Seriously I had to check that they hadn't slipped the wrong size in with it.  I like it with black underneath though and it's not something you can really wear without a slip as the crochet bit is very see through and I don't fancy sharing my knickers with the rest of the office...

Hope you manage to keep the Monday blues at bay xx

  2. wauw that dress looks so great on you!! Stunning outfit!


  3. I love this dress! It is a beautiful color! I know what you mean about looking glum in photos because I feel the same way in all of mine. It's hard to know how to stand and it does make you feel a bit silly to be standing there having your photo taken, especially outside. But you have a great blog, so smile! :-D
