I took these photos last week and planned on publishing the post straight away but then I got the dreaded flu virus that's been going around and all my plans went out the window. For three days I could barely stand, never mind come on the laptop, so everything has been a little bit behind and delayed, although I'm back on form now and trying to get caught up with everything asap. Looking back, I don't think I really look too well in these, but I love the outfit so I thought I'd post them anyway!

Although this 'dress' is actually sold as a top, when it's layered with thick tights and worn with a duster jacket like this, there really is no reason not to just wear it as a dress... or at least that's what I'm telling myself to justify it - the benefits of being small! I have worn it as a top too, layered over the top of a casual tee and with jeans.

I love this jacket and I've been wearing it loads lately for an extra layer in my outfits, partly because it goes with everything and partly because it's been so damn cold, I've needed every layer I can get!
It's rare I wear something that it predominantly white, which, when I wear so much monochrome is a little strange. It has a smart, dressy vibe to it, which I love, because I love the whole smart/casual look at the moment... it's so easy to dress an outfit up or change the whole look of something with one key piece.

Hope you've all had a great weekend, I'm going to try and make the most of today as it's my last day of eight off work... why does time off go by so quickly?!
