Taking A Break From Stripes!

Outfit: Karen Millen khaki knitted dress, Karen Millen khaki vest top, Karen Millen giraffe print double strap belt, Dorothy Perkins tan flats.

I didn't realise just how many striped garments I own/wear until I started photographing my outfits! Today, I deliberately stayed away from stripes!

Sorry the photos are not that good this time around but I was already tired from the long Summer's day and so was my Mum - you can even see glimpses of her shoes from how/where she was sitting while taking the photos!

The dress I'm wearing is from Karen Millen's Autumn/Winter 2010 collection. The belt and vest (which you can see the outline of through my dress haha) is from Karen Millen's Spring/Summer 2011 collection. The shoes are from years ago; I think I bought them when I was 13?

I wasn't up to much at the weekend except for a lot of junk food and laziness! I spent a lot of time in front of my laptop reading blogs with either music or Friends on in the background...

Today, it was my day off but I had to go in for 3 hours to work overtime; it was rather easy work so it's all good!

I planned my leaving do with my colleagues as I'll be leaving my Supervisor role at Karen Millen by the end of the month! I'm leaving to go back into full time education! Ah! I'm going to go to Philippines to visit my Mum's side of the family for a month first though...

I also went shopping in the afternoon however I didn't buy anything photo-worthy...

In the evening, I went for a (non-alcoholic) drink with a friend whom I don't get to see often. We've been friends on and off for years but we've never gotten too close. Lately we've had a couple one-on-one chats and it's been nice. He's changed over the years - he's a good guy indeed. Genuine.

Lastly, thank you all again for your comments!
