One of those days where I dress up a bit for work! I keep meaning to follow the adage of “Dress not for the job you have, but the one you want” but that doesn’t always happen when you are on an early shift with a 5am alarm. But when things work out and I do manage to assemble something that isn’t a long top, jeans and boots it does help lift my mood!

Also for outerwear after seeing a similar look on Facebook I decided to combine my cape coat with my leather opera gloves to add some glamour to my outfit. I don’t normally get to take photos of my outerwear but having been evicted from my desk during my lunch hour (my phoneline needed fixing), I took advantage of a brief sunny spell to take a couple of photos in Southernhay. While I think my facial expressions are a little awkward and there was far too much mud I do like how these photos came out. Will definitely be using this spot for more photos when the weather is dryer!
