Not a fan of my outfit today. Too much black and my pants wouldn't stay in the ankle boots - as you can see in the photos! I need to remember to wear dresses and skirts with these boots, or cropped pants. These are one of those sets of outfit photos I'd rather not post... I want to post all of my daily outfits though, so you get to see my mistake :) Check a full length mirror before you leave the house to avoid this kind of thing! ;)

I had the crazy idea of putting all this together last night while working late as I had to do a presentation today. We are usually very casual at work on Fridays. I wanted to look dressed up enough so that I'd fit in if others were wearing standard work clothes, but not stick out too much if others were doing casual Friday. It was funny, I got to the meeting room early to setup and one of the ladies there was wearing identical pants - so I think I got the outfit right, except the boots. I spent most of the day wishing I'd worn flats instead and trying to subtly push my pants legs back into my boots :P


Also received my giveaway prizes today! Margs from La Petite Mademoiselle had a blog giveaway and I won!

She is having a second giveaway here for another goodie bag, go enter!

  9. Aww I quite like the mainly-black! The scarf is a nice touch subtly adding colour on top of the trench. And oh man, don't get me started on pants/boots problems - I pretty much only wear ankle skimming pants cos I'm a shortass/hate taking up hems, they NEVER meet my boots neatly!

    Also, I'm a bit behind the times, but I'm glad to see your lovely face in your photos now!
