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.

(Dress, H&M;
Glitter hair bow - worn clipped on a necklace chain, c/o Beau XOXO;
Bracelet, Mulberry.)

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.

  20. Sounds like you've had a lovely chilled day today - I ended up walking from Mile End in the East End of London to Trafalgar Square - crazy!

    Also, it does not count as breaking a resolution if it was out of your control! :D

  21. Know what you mean about the dog. Our next door neighbour's dog has earned the name little s**t for barking at crazy hours. The worst was after doing a 12 hour night shift, the moment my head touched my pillow...Bark bark bark! Awesome idea using the hair clip as a necklace! :) xx

  33. Oh gosh, I do not envy you at all Rachel ;) Walking from Embankment to King's Cross in heels on NYE was more than enough for me, I'm usually a tube or taxi girl for anything else in London! xx

  37. That dress is absolutely gorgeous, I love the glittery bow tie clip on a necklace chain as well, it adds a bit of glitz and I am loving bow ties at the moment, I have a chiffon one from ASOS that I think looks really cute on a white shirt for the office. Good luck for the meeting with your internship boss, can't wait to hear all about it! X

  38. Thanks Rosie! I seriously can't get enough of it, I genuinely think I'm in Little Mix or something haha ;) Really excited for next week, I feel like I'm living a bit of a double life though, with blog events and job events by night and Uni by day :P xx

  39. I have the same dress, tho I cut the front part of the lining out because I am a slut. I'm not really, but I like to wear it with bright bandeau bra tops for a bit of colour!

  42. This is what happens when you say 'we'll walk to Brick Lane is is only 20 mins away ' and keep on altering the destination all afternoon! At least I was wearing Uggs!
