cobalt blue

28/03/2013

i think this might actually be one of my favourite outfits i have worn for a while, i just think it's pretty my perfect combination that shows off my personal style. these are two pieces i bought whilst working in the adult h&m store compared to my usual kidswear surroundings, this means i am constantly surrounded by things i want to buy now and on this occasion i caved. i think the dress is a worthy investment as it can be layered up for colder days (like today) or perfect for summer to just pair with some sandals. they also have it in a gorgeous peach colour that i'm tempted to get. the jumper is such a bargain though at £7 (or £5.25 for me with my SD) as it's so soft and the quality just feels so lovely. there is nothing worse than a jumper that irritates the skin. let me know if you like it.

on a personal level the leap from eight to thirty hours is slowly starting to sink in at how i am basically never really going to have much free to myself during the days anymore. it's time like this where i wish i'd just stayed at university even though i didn't enjoy it, just to further delay having to grow up and work. it's pretty tough at the moment, as i'm training in newcastle where it is impossible to park so i'm having to leave my car at home and get an hour metro journey which means i basically have to get up three hours before i'm actually supposed to be in work. for instance, i have a shift at nine next week which i will have to get up at six for, the time i used to get up for when i had a 7am delivery shift at the metro. i think if anything it makes you realise how much you dependent you become on a car when you have one.

  2. That jumper is incredible, I am in love with the colour of it! I need it! Looks wonderful on you.
    I know the feeling about the travelling, I live in Newcastle but study in Sunderland and it's around 90 mins travelling each way as I have to get a bus and metro to get there - it's a bit of pain (and oh so tiring!). I have to leave the house at 7.15am just to get to a 9am lecture, it's the worst. I feel for you!
