In the class she’s taking notes

This tartan dress has become a bit of a favourite of mine since I bought it in Primark about a month ago.  The gathered sleeves and the collar with the bow underneath make it really unique and I’ve had lots of comments on it every time I’ve worn it.  The last time I wore it, I wore it with my red tartan scarf, I think it made all the Scottish people I work with who are down on secondment feel more at home! I am reliably informed that the tartan in the dress is Black Watch Tartan and I also now know a lot more about the Black Watch themselves than I ever thought I would! Every day’s a school day, as they say…

Actually that last rather flippant quote is probably very apt for this outfit, as with my tartan shift dress and satchels I do feel a little like a Scottish schoolgirl! My favourite part of this outfit however has to be my amazing bow flats from Ugg.  They are seriously comfy and amazingly well made, with a sheepskin interior and buttery suede exterior.  I just love the red bow too, they certainly feel like a very special shoe, and they are even more beautiful in real life.

I feel like I look really different in these photos but there’s only two very minor differences.  Firstly, I haven’t been wearing eyeliner this week – I’ve had a few people say it makes me look younger but I think I look more tired! Nonetheless it’s been nice to give my eyelids a break.  I’ve also been trying to straighten my hair less so this week I’ve just been straightening the ends and leaving the top (this is big news isn’t it, I bet you’re all on the edge of your seat waiting for others developments in my morning routine).  I think the less I straighten it the more it grows and it’s certainly feeling longer lately, which probably means I’ll get all antsy soon and chop it off!

I’m so excited that it’s Friday, I hope you all have some lovely weekend plans.  Tom has been away this week delivering training and arrived back this afternoon so it’s nice having him back.  Our evening mainly involves steak and ale pie, wine and a movie on the sofa.  This weekend I’ll be seeing my family and on Monday my friend and I are having a road trip to Bicester Village.  I’ve been putting money in a savings pot for the last few months and I have just over £200 so I’m hoping to treat myself to something nice from Kate Spade or Michael Kors.  I’ve done most of my Christmas shopping already (I know, I know, it’s not even December yet!) so I feel I’m allowed to treat myself! No doubt I’ll be picking up a few more presents too, I tend to go a bit overboard at Christmas as I love giving presents so much!
