OOTD - violet maxi skirt and blog business cards

So this is the outfit I wore to work on Friday



Sheer shirt - Topshop


Indigo skirt - Primark


Peep toes - New Look


Charm Bracelet - present


 


I was really impressed when I went to Primark this week, I don't normally go in but I'm glad I did - they had a huge range of bright colours which are very on trend for colour blocking, some gorgeous day dresses which would be perfect for the summer holidays and loads of maxi dresses and palazzo pants - they're definitely improving rapidly. I'm going to go in for another look at the weekend!!

I also got blog buisness cards made! I was inspired by Oh! Panda's blog which suggested they can help you spread the word about your blog and I know I'd have needed them at the Aussie event a few weeks ago. She suggested 2 sites, and I went with Vista Print for mine as you get 250 free (and if you sign up and then don't order, you get an email offering you 300 for free!) The only snag... their advert on the back but I don't mind that!



 

Keep an eye out on the blog for the next couple of weeks as I start my holiday series of blog posts. Your guide to what to pack, wear, apply, carry and use for all holiday occasions. If you have a special holiday coming up and want me to write a post for you then just comment and let me know!
