Not Seeing The Wood For The Trees

Happy Friday Folks,
Well i have nothing much to say today other than the usual, WOOHOOO its the weekend, bring on the food, heeheehee.

I wore this outfit to work on Tuesday, i think… 

I was only saying to Paul today how the days seem to be flying by at a ridiculous rate lately. Sometimes my head is so buried amongst accounts, payment dates and forward date planning for bill payments that i forget to actually register what the day is and to make the most of it. Kinda like not seeing the wood for the trees, my heads in the books looking for the end result that i cant see what’s right in front of me, which in this case was actually some very beautiful woodlands 🙂

 Its been really refreshing just taking a break for a change and seeing the world, the trees are turning some beautiful shades lately and i can’t help but look up!

Having said that, today we are having the worst torrential rain i have seen in a long time, which is just no fun 🙁

Dress & Bag: New Look

Blazer: George @Asda

Brooch: Vintage

Boots: Tesco

 I bought this dress weeks and weeks ago and it just hung there, looking at me and for some reason i just didn’t really feel much in the mood to wear it, i have no idea why! Its purple shade and swallow print are so pretty, and green tights are my new favourite!
Out of all my outfits Hubs actually LIKED this one… i know! That’s gotta mean I’m doing something right (on the wife front at least!haha!)

So i will bid you farewell, and wish you a wonderful weekend ladies! 

Hope it’s a productive fabulous one!
