Wednesday Wishlist

Jacket - ASOS
Shorts - ASOS

I'm a monochrome kind of girl, however I am a sucker for a bit of bright yellow/lime! I don't think I have been this obsessed with an outfit in a while, which is why it earned a blog post all by it's self! However can I justify shorts as all the stores start bringing out there autumn/winter collections? 

The Jacket although more winter appropriate, may still be a guilty buy as I brought two long line blazers last weekend (the infamous black and white ones everyone has from Primark!). I love long blazers, having just started working I am desperately seeking pieces that can be dressed for work and for casual, I feel long blazers are the perfect compromise for this, as they look great dressed down with jeans or made smart with matching trousers.

My Graduation

Dress - Lispy
Shoes - La Moda
Gown - BCU graduation ;)

So I have officially graduated. 

When I was 9 years old I decided I wanted to study fashion design at university, fast forward 12 years and that dream finally came true, when I graduated on Monday with a degree in Fashion Design and Fashion Communication. Who would of thought that something I decided in year 5 of primary school would stick.

I wanted something bright to wear under my gown, and I have always been a complete sucker for yellow! This dress is from Lispy, a place I never actually shop, but fit me like a dream... 4 months ago that is! When I re-tried it on just 5 says before my graduation, a combination of deadline bingeing, italian food and moving house take-aways meant it was far too small! Thanks to my amazing, eat nothing my fruit and veg, 5 day diet (patient pending) I actually managed it.

The shoes, although not the most elegant were a wise choice, as the long walk across the graduation stage, is defiantly one I thought I would mess up. The last thing any gal wants is to end up face first in a heap on a very public and important stage!

OOTD | 10 Downing Street

Dress - H&M
Watch - Daniel Wellington

So for all you bloggers currently obsessing over finding new and unique locations for your outfit posts... how did I do? ;)

So I recently got to visit 10 Downing Street for a business meeting with my new internship. That's one for the bucket list ay, my Nan was well proud! Obviously the hardest thing was deciding what to wear, it's not every day your wondering around the prime ministers house. So a leather was the obvious choice...? I honestly love this dress, well I should say loved this dress**, it's very hard to find work suitable clothes that you actually feel fashionable in, but with the leather panel and racer front top, I brought this without even having work in mind!

**That dainty little slit couldn't quite handle my not so lady like strides and it's now not so dainty and a little bit erotic... Whoopsie.
