101 Things in 1001 days: Wear a skirt or dress every day for a week

101 things in 1001 days

Hello again readers, on my lunch-break at work and it’s a fast day (I’m doing this interesting 5:2 diet) so I am incredibly hungry and I still have four hours to go. So, I am distracting myself to bring you another 101 things in 1001 days. Throughout university I lived in a worn pair of jeans and a number of comfy jumpers and sweatshirts. I loved to dress up and to be feminine, especially on nights out or seeing friends, but I got stuck in a ‘student wear’ rut for day-to-day wear. Jeans and a jumper were easier to throw on early in the morning to get a few more minutes of shut-eye, or it was comfier, seeing as I was going to be stuck in the library for hours on end. However, I decided to set myself the challenge of wearing dresses and skirts for a week and since then I have never looked back. I now own a rather startlingly array of different coloured and patterned dresses. I have always been a very feminine person but hadn’t chosen to exude this in my fashion choices; well not anymore. When I started my new job I decided to invest in a number of statement accessories, blazers, jackets and shoes to mix and match with my beloved patterned dresses. Since then I have never looked back. I know this 101 things is a little fickle, but I wanted to find some confidence in my appearance and try something new. Sometimes it’s the little things that can make the biggest of differences.

SPIRE BALL

Afternoon my lovely little bloggers! I attended the School of Politics, International Relations, and Philosophy Ball last night and thought I would share a photo from the evening. It’s all getting a bit to close to me re-entering the real world. But last night was a time for fun, drinks, dancing and lots of laughter!
