Hello, and a very happy Bank Holiday Monday to you all! I could certainly get used to these three-day weekends. Despite having spent the majority of my weekend indoors giving our house a dust, clean and decor sesh - today I tackled our fish tank and the garden! - I'm really feeling quite content after a few days away from the Internet and generally away from the outdoor world. It's a hermit life for me!

Cream lace bralet, Unlabelled sample sale garment; Cream Jacquard print skater skirt, Miss Selfridge; Belt, c/o F&F at Tesco; TRF wedges, Zara.

First things first -- I got my hair chopped off! Last week I impulsively booked an appointment at my hairdresser's and by 11am on Saturday morning, I left the salon with this midi length style, inspired wholly by Anna. What do we all think?! I'm absolutely in love with it, it's refreshingly light and makes hair-wash time so much easier.

Now onto the outfit... Last Friday saw the first of our work sample sales since we moved offices. Sample sales are pretty good fun for picking up a bargain or two, and this time round, I picked up some skirts (including the one I'm wearing in this post - less than a tenth of its' actual selling price) and this adorable cream lace bralet. I really feel like this season, my style has grown into itself. Ask any one of my friends and they'll be able to string some words to describe my style -- cutesy, girly, little dresses, not-much colour… But recently I've been much more into taking my prints and polka dots to the next level, dabbling in wearing colour and taking a little step away from my go-to collars and dresses.

This cream lace bralet is completely unlabelled - sorry about that! - I am seriously in love with the cut-out front, and will probably team this with a light knit or something if I was to wear it in the day. I'm going to wear it with this patterned skirt and my Zara TRF wedges for a friend's 22nd birthday celebrations next week. So excited to celebrate with him: it marks almost eleven years of our friendship!

I can hardly believe that this week signifies the start of June and the midway marker of 2013?! I really need to sit down and have a read of my goals for the year and start putting plans to action. The last few weeks have been incredibly stressful and tiring for me, and left me feeling a little bit lost, but it's probably about time I got the cogs turning on some new projects and ventures! (: Plus, I woke up to new about Beast's new digital single out Wednesday and their comeback in July - perfecto.

  7. Your hair is such a lovely length Michelle, I think my hair is about that length too, maybe a teeny bit shorter but totally agree, it's so nice getting a couple of inches off for the Summer. Loving the sample sale buys too!

    1. Thanks Winnie! It really needed a refresh for the warmer months, was getting a little too long for my liking. Oh gosh, you can't beat a good sample sale, eh? ;) x

  8. I'm what you would call a hermit if I'm honest too haha, I enjoy those days where you just stay in with a film etc... Your hair looks immense and so shiny. I had mine cut the other week and it's crazy how much better a good cut can do it!

    I can relate to the comment you left (thank you btw!) and I agree it's hard to get out the comfort zone with a lot of things and the first handful of times you do something it's uncomfortable but then it becomes second nature. I used to find it nerve wracking to catch the bus alone as a teenager and now it doesn't cross my mind at all, it's just something that happens in my everyday life. Setting little goals is the way to go Michelle :) xxx

  11. You look lovely Michelle! The bralet is very cute but I don't know if I'd be able to pull it off.

    Argh, I need a public holiday right now :( Hope you enjoyed yours!

    1. Aw thank you Jane <3 I wasn't too sure either but actually really liked wearing it! I'll probably wear a fluffy top (looks nicer than it sounds) or sheer shirt with it for more 'everyday' purposes though. x

  14. Wow, your hair looks lovely! I bet it's going to be nice for some of the summer weather that is approaching too. You look amazing in the print skirt and bralet. Personally I wouldn't feel comfortable showing off so much skin, but you look damn fine it it! Rock it woman. :]
