Instead of running errands and braving the crowds today in positively Arctic conditions outside (stupidly left it until the weekend, and town will be heaving now!), so far I’ve been spending my Saturday updating my online portfolio and consequently, trying to take photos of my face to include on one of the pages. Embarrassing.
This is what I’m wearing today, and I’ve decided I’ll probably run it through the wash and steam the creases out tomorrow and wear it to the Marie Claire Awards on Tuesday. I bought it a few weeks – or more like months – ago at the Elle x H&M networking event with Sabrina, and honestly don’t get enough wear out of it. It’s the perfect, tailored-yet-casual fitting dress, with a light, black slip underneath a chiffon layer. The back is completely sheer, so warrants nice underwear or a camisole top, and the front has large sheer pockets and a collared, button-through bodice. Lovely. After I’d taken my portfolio photos, I also clipped my Beau XOXO hair bow on a spare necklace chain and wore it as a sweet alternative to a bowtie. I can’t get enough of it!
Other than that, I’m having a relatively chilled Saturday: reading journal articles and textbooks about blogging for my dissertation, writing said diss, poring over a law book (send help!), and preparing for a meeting with my internship boss on Tuesday morning! Oh!… and I also failed a 2012 goal this week. The whole ‘in bed by 1am’ thing? Not possible when your neighbours’ Jack Russell is awake and barking until ungodly hours. ♥
