Close up of accessories and bag:

Was a nice warm day today - rather sad to spend the day in the office though and view the sunshine through the window! Was good to be able to wear a skirt without my winter opaques needed for warmth though.

It's nice to see how my work wardrobe has changed over time - gone from preferring pants to loving dresses and skirts, even in winter. This beautiful blue lace pencil skirt is one of my favourites. Although I don't seem to wear it much in winter, it got a work out at the start of the year with the warmer temperatures. I expect it to pop up more in future ;) Tried a little bit of pattern mixing today by wearing it with a printed top, what do you think?

If you're hunting for anything in particular at the moment, Asos have an extra 15% off their sale with the code "MIDSEASON15". Enjoy :)

The sunnies were last worn here, top here, belt here, skirt here, shoes here and bag here.
