Suits You.

Haha at my face in the first place. This is how I look at work. I truly love a man in a suit, as I've said countless times before. And I regularly, unashamedly check them out. But I hate women's pant suits, I think they're so boring. So for work, as I've mentioned before, I try to mix it up with pretty dresses, and simple outfits. I tried to dress up a little bit today so threw this blazer on. I also went to a little sushi bar called Samsi with my friends at work, which was lovely, and I'd suggest it to anyone if they're looking for a great lunch. 6 sushi dishes for £6.95, and there is lots of choice, and they'll make ones up for you if you like a certain type of sushi.

This is the midi skirt I wore a couple weeks ago when it was super sunny, now the rain has set in as usual for summer I've had to don the tights. I do think the two outfits show how versatile the skirt is though and I think the length and pleating are really flattering. I wore it high-waisted with a black tee tucked in to create a waist. I love the navy blue of the skirt and matched it with this preppy blazer I picked up from M&S outlet store in Manchester. I can't wait to wear this with skinny blue jeans and a loose vest for casual day wear. I've seen the blazer and jeans look on quite a lot of people in general and think it's a nice alternative to my leather jacket I can't seem to get out of wearing.
I wore this green jewelry set which went nicely with the navy. 

I'm still awaiting my massive package that I ordered from Dorothy Perkins on Friday night. But when it gets here I'll do a haul post, as I got some great stuff from their main line, and snapped a few goodies in their sale as well. 

Oh I'm also thinking of signing back up to a beauty box. I originally had Glossybox, and I loved it, but the Joliebox looks lovely too. Can anyone suggest a good one that they've liked?
