(Blouse:New Look, Shorts: C/O Virgos Lounge, Shoes:New Look, Lipstick: Mischief by Topshop)


After putting this outfit together, I realised I pretty much looked like a poor mans Caroline Flack (not quite owning the bow tied blouse and shorts look quite as well), but overall am really happy with the combination of chunky velvet shorts contrasted with a delicate concertina-esque pleat blouse- a mix perfect for this weird inbetween weather April seems to spring on us (pardon the pun), and would look great teamed with some black tights too.

Anyway, how is everyone? I've had a pretty busy work at Look- which I'm loving. It's a lot of work and many many many clothes returns, but when working around such a great team (and some great clothes) it does make it far easier, and am definitely certain that this is what I want to do (not clothes returns, but working at a magazine!) Hey, a girl can dream.

Also, I wanted to mention something I have been meaning to mention for a while. This year I'm very proud to say, Papa Purvis is running his 5th London Marathon in aid of the amazing Macmillan Cancer Support- a charity providing specialist care and improving the lives for those affected by cancer- a.k.a a very worthy cause. This is a hugely deserving charity, and I wouldn't post about it if I didn't feel strongly, but it would mean the world to me if you could possibly take a look at his Virgin Money Giving Page and even maybe donate a pound or two, as it certainly makes a difference and will help towards his target of £2000!

I hope you're all having a lovely week, and have a fantastic weekend! I've got some more posts lined up for the rest of this week, so stay tuned!

  23. Oh don't be silly... you own it! You give Miss Flack a good ol' run for her money! :) I adore the blouse with the tie detail. And anything velvet is fine by me. The scallop detailing is just an added bonus. Look sounds fun! I'd love to work for a magazine x x

  40. You look far more stylish than Caroline Flack! I love your red lip and the scalloped edge on the shorts. The paper bag waist really flatters you too. The navy colour is a bit more interesting (and a bit less winter) than black. Have a fine weekend. All the best for your Dad in the next couple weeks- I wish I was committed to running.
