The dress that fits the bill

dress: tokito // shoes: sportsgirl

I have never been good at dressing professionally, my own sense of style and reluctance to spend money on clothes that I don't love but fit the work dress code has meant I usually just try and turn my weekend wardrobe into my work wardrobe too. This dress however seems to meet me half way, the cut and fit is professional but the colour is fun enough that I still feel like this dress is very me!

This weekend passed by in an absolute whirlwind, I haven't been sleeping well and I feel like the last week has just been a haze of being half awake and half asleep. Waking up at 5am the last two mornings also hasn't helped.

Sitting and reflecting though we did manage to fit a lot in this weekend - we house hunted and found three places we really like which is a relief after feeling a little disheartened after the last couple of weeks. I went and saw Les Miserables which I really enjoyed, quite the emotional rollercoaster and we went to the markets with friends - the rest of the time I napped, I guess that's not too bad overall! What did you do this weekend?

  2. Beautiful dress! I tend to avoid Tokito like a plague because i always get sucked into buying a blazer or a pencil skirt. I spent my weekend working and dreaming of my trip down to Canberra this friday! CANNOT WAIT

  3. The dress is gorgeous. I have been revising this weekend, but I watched Les Mis on Friday. I thought it was pretty good :)

  4. This dress is fabulous! I think you're right, it definitely has a fun, professional edge. I worked all weekend, boring but this week is going to be awesome!

  5. Fabulous dress! Perfect for work. I was never great at having a work wardrobe although I was lucky to work in a creative profession and could get away with wearing my vintage frocks to work. :)

    House hunting can be so annoying and especially in January. Everyone seems to be looking in January, especially students. I hope you find the place that's right for you soon.

  6. Very you, I love it! I'm a little concerned about finding work where I will have to potentially choose my outfit each day...wearing scrubs for four years has certainly made life easier!

    I have been having the same trouble with sleeping too, very frustrating! I don't think the hot weather has helped, I love it but its hard not to feel lethargic when it's been sitting about 30 for a week! I've spent the weekend on the coast with in-laws, SO glad to finally get to the beach!! xx
