Last of the Summer Outfits

Because I had a feeling the weather would turn when I got back from Spain (and man, has it turned!) I decided to make the most of the last few nice days before I went away and wear my last few favourite summer work outfits. I have this one and another one to come up, and then it's full steam ahead with autumn. As much as I love the autumn I am already sick of being cold. I'm back to wearing a dress, jacket and coat on my walk to work. And getting soaking wet through on the way there! Speaking of rain, I'm starting to look at running clothes for the cold and rain and I would love some advice. At the moment I'm looking for a lightweight, waterproof jacket with a hood, a couple of long-sleeved base layers, some waterproof socks and a headband to keep my ears warm! It will make a nice change from running in my flappy Primark pack a mac!
dress- River Island via Sian
mint blazer- Boohoo
necklace- Zalando
heels- New Look
So, there is a story behind this outfit! This dress used to belong to my blogging bestie, Sian! She wore it when we went to Aintree together last year and I loved it, so when she was selling it in her blog shop I jumped at the change! I was glad it was just about long enough for work with a blazer and heels, although as I've said before, this blazer wrinkles like crazy! I've worn the combo of mint and pink before, so I decided to add some pink lipstick too. I absolutely love lipstick but I get so sick of constantly reapplying it and usually end up wiping it off after a few hours.
That's pretty much all from me! I'm having a super-quiet week this week which is driving me a bit crazy, but hopefully it will give me a chance to catch up with some blogging, sleeping and reading time! Oh I live life in the fast lane, don't I?
Have a lovely evening!

  5. That outfit looks fab on you - what a colour. And I'm amazed that the dress and blazer are from different places but match perfectly!
