I am the One who Knocks

Hello, first outfit post of 2014. And my first outfit post in ages! I've been feeling so uninspired lately. I haven't really been doing much shopping over the last two months and I've been a bit bored with what I already have. I've solved this by scouring Pinterest for outfit ideas, increasing the number of blogs I read and yeah, maybe a bit of online shopping! This outfit came from a post from Glamour I spotted on Facebook about wearing tartan and gave me a good jolt of inspiration. I got this Heisenberg tshirt for Chrirstmas and I've worn it SO many times since! When I say I've been uninspired lately, I've basically been living in jeans and either this or my Soft Kitty tshirt! 
tartan skirt- Dorothy Perkins
Heisenberg tshirt- Topman (gift)
leather jacket- H&M
necklace- Topshop
boots- Boohoo
Anyway, I have news! Those of you who follow me on Instagram or Twitter might know, but I have a new job! I've had a few interviews over the last few weeks and on Thursday I was offered the job I was really hoping to get. I'm going to be working as a Display Executive in the marketing department for AO.com and I start next Monday! It's in Bolton which means a bit more of a commute than I'm used to (it's going to be about 50 minutes on the train each way), but I'm excited to start! AO.com are the fourth best company in the UK to work for, and I'm excited to start a job in marketing as I've always been interested in that area of business. Wish me luck! It will mean some changes though, which I'm a little scared of as a creature of habit! I'll need to figure out when I'm going to fit my half marathon training in as running in the morning will be a bit more tricky (however one of the perks is subsidized gym membership and the gym is right next to the train station), work out when I'm going to take blog photos and then fit in seeing Phil and my friends too. But I'm sure I'll figure everything out when I get started! I remember what a big culture shock it was when I first started working full time and how difficult it seemed at the time to fit everything in, but I managed it just fine once I got used to it. 
So this is my last week of unemployment! I did an 8 mile run this morning (my longest run yet!) and started watching Homeland this afternoon (I'm already hooked!), and I'm back at choir tonight. I've kept myself really busy while I've been between jobs but I'm ready for a new challenge!

  2. I love that this outfit is really bright and edgy, (especially with Walter White, lol) but still classy and grownup! Congrats on the job :) Sounds like it could be really great, despite the inconveniences.
