Black, White and Spotty all over

 
Can I just tell you how much I love this dress? My Mum bought it first and I really, really liked it, but I needed a different size. I umm-ed and ahh-ed over it for ages. I mean, did we really need the same dress in two slightly different sizes in the same house? But then one of the girls on my training course was wearing it with a blazer and heels and it just looked so nice and so smart that I caved. It's great for when I have plans after work because I feel professional but nice. These photos are from a couple of weeks ago when I met Oli for dinner after work. He's currently doing his Masters at Manchester University so I met him in town after a day in the library for him and a day at work for me. We went to Luck Lust Liquor and Burn in the Northern Quarter which was fab, so if you're looking for great mexican food in Manchester I'd definitely recommend it!

I've had a really quiet few days and even though I've got a million and one things to be getting on with, I hate being bored! You know when you have a really busy week and you think "God, I need a break" so you keep the following week free? Yeah well I did that, but it's only Wednesday and I'm already bored out of my mind. So, I called my friend Eve at 6pm after a long day at work and asked her to come round later, and I also made plans with my friend Shaunagh for Friday. I still have War and Peace to finish, a load of blog posts to get written up, emails to sort out and a project for my photography class, but I find I get so much more done when I'm busy. I miss being at uni when you always had a friend in the house to hang out with, but saying that, Eve has practically been living at my house lately. I call her "my other boyfriend." 
 
I've got a blog post about the afternoon tea party I had on Sunday to go up tomorrow, so I'll see you then!

  1. I absolutely love this outfit. You look so cute and professional all at the same time! I'm going to need a polka dot dress like that. Your red blazer looks perfect with it.
