The spaceman said it ain't so bad.

Hey guys!

Another long week in the world of work!
So tired all the time, yet still finding time to fit in the gym! However, if it wasn't for the boy keeping up with the housework I would be living in a rubbish dump as work and gym leaves little time for anything else.

This week is gonna be a busy week, gotta keep up with the gym and work and planning my dissertation and moving house at the weekend! So much to do, so little time.

Anyway. Sunday I had a day off from everything, so the boy and I went on a little shopping trip. I bought a beautiful jumpsuit which I will feature later in the week and a leather dress, which looked cool in Topshop but when I got it home it quite literally looked like a bin bag. So needless to say, that will be taken back next time I head into town. 

This is what I wore for the day.

Top - River Island Mens, Hat, necklace and boots - Topshop, Skirt - Ark

I love teaming a man shirt with a girly skirt, even if it is still a little grungy. They are perfect for just chucking on with anything and best of all they are comfy and flattering.

I thought I'd add the Oxblood boots as a nice change from black creepers or boots and they matched the lipstick quite well. I love adding chunky bling with an all black outfit because... well, who doesn't love chunky bling!

I am now off to catch up on some telly and get an early night. Living life in the fast lane!

Love you all!

You wanted all I had to give...

Look guys, I am rubbish. Sorry for my long absence. 
I have been a busy bee!

I have gotten myself a job!
A real 9 to 5 job. The boyf has also moved in and have been attempting to make the gym a very frequent part of my routine, plus getting a decent sleeping pattern sorted - no more 6 AM bedtimes for me as I now have to be up at 7 for work, so as you can imagine, I have been a little preoccupied! Don't know how the rest of you bloggers do it! 

However, for this post, I thought I would show you how I would style my seriously cool new over-sized shirt that I bought for work! 

Shirt and rucksack - Primark, Leggings - River Island, Socks - H&M, Creepers, Pasha Northampton (Now  Redbox)

So this is essentially how I wore the shirt for work, the dress code is smart casual, but that means no miniskirts, which has obviously been a bit of a problem considering that is pretty much all I wear.
So, all black, very sensible, perfect for those days when you just want to cover up and hide under something flattering, however, the sheerness of the fabric allows the wearer to add a little sexy twist to the outfit should they choose to. It also comes in cream and would make a great holiday wear, for throwing on at the beach or in the evenings with the studded belt that is included.
at £10 it is a bit of a bargain in my opinion.

Anywho. This is how I would take it from office to night out...

Leather shorts - River Island, Boots and necklace - Topshop, Vest (Under shirt) - New Look

For a night out I would just swap leggings for shorts and flats for heels.
I chose a chunky necklace as it stood out well against the black, and also matched with the cute gold buttons on the shirt.
Now these boots. These boots are my babies. They are fairly painful boots, but I love them so much that I am willing to put up with them. ( I have a black big toenail that proves my persistence, but come on... So freaking hot!)

I had been eyeing them in Topshop for about 5 months, however, at £100 they were too far out of my budget, so when they went into sale at £50 I decided to wait for a few days, then when I looked again and they still had them in my size I knew it was a sign I needed to buy them. 
Yes. NEEDED. Don't judge.

Once again, I digress, the gold detailing on the buckles also matched the buttons on the shirt so I thought they were a great combination!
I thought a blood red lip gave a slick pop of colour to the outfit, but still in keeping with my grungy style.

Now just need to find the time to go on a night out so I can actually show off this combination!

Gonna say ciao for now because I don't know when the heck I will be back.
