Busy Bee Outfits

I seem to have been ridiculously busy over the last week or two and my poor old blog has become some what neglected. I have also had to cancel going to fashion week again! due to workload, grr. I will definitely be making an effort to say something intelligent or informative over the next week but for now just two outfits for the week (or one of them) that I was busy as a bee.

I made the skirt by cutting down a longer denim skirt. This is worn over People Tree leggings with a very very old top from Dorothy Perkins, I think it is about 10 years old but i don't think it looks at all out of fashion. I got the bag in the sale at Dorothy Perkins last year, the cardigan is by Fenn Wright Manson and the boots by Topshop.

To make a change from wearing my winter coat I decided to wear this Chanel style tweed jacket instead. It was from Marks and Spencers originally but I got it from a local charity shop and have been trying to find the right outfit to wear it with. I find it quite difficult to wear without looking over smart but I thought the denim skirt was a good way to dress it down.

Apologies about the messy dressing table in the photos. I have a new laptop and haven't sorted out the photo editing software yet.

Hope you are having a lovely weekend and finding time to relax

With warmest wishes

I love the Chanelesque jacket and agree it looks good with denim. It will go well over jeans and a plain jersey dress for spring. Hope you get to Fashion week next time and I would love to meet your chocolate covered three year old, sounds like my kind of girl, I have a hidden creme egg to eat in a minute!

LOVE the DIY mini denim skirt! It looks so adorable on you! I really love that bright pink on you too and the tweed jacket is so very chic. You look great!

So sorry you had to cancel your fashion week plans. That's really disapointing. :(

Come take a look inside A Working Mom's Closet

Love love love that lingerie inspired top in the first picture. Somehow it is demure and sexy at the same time.
I can relate to missing fashion week because of work load (and finances as I'd have to travel)
