A couple of weeks ago my good friend and I decided to wear matching outfits to work for an entire week. Each day we chose a different colour and coordinated looks; towards the end of the week a few other colleagues joined in too. It was very fun, brightened up the week and gave me something to look forward to each day. These are our pictures from purple Monday. The focus on monochrome gave me so many ideas for outfits; at the moment I adore wearing outfits in one colour. For this look I added as much purple as I could find in my wardrobe and was happy with the results. This was my first time wearing this dress. I purchased it last year from Modcloth and it's the Boysenberry Buckle Dress by Hell Bunny. The reason I hadn't worn it before was the length; it's pretty crazy that it took probably six months to get around to having it hemmed. I know the vintage style of the dress suits the longer length but I didn't think it was particularly flattering on me. I like the way it is much better now. The strapless style will be really lovely in the warmer weather. I added my glitter purple Guess flats because what is there not to love about sparkle!?
This week I'll be at law college instead of work which I'm extremely nervous about. I've always experienced extremely low confidence and deep feelings of insecurity around both studying and working in the law so I'm going to find this week extremely challenging. I have no interest in the law; my mind wanders continually and I'm generally thinking about fashion instead. The practical and role play style of assessments this week are just so incredibly far out of my comfort zone. The last time I physically attended college back in January (this is an online course with three weeks only of physical attendance) I was so unhappy and missed work immensely. I just cannot wait until it's over. I'll feel so much better about myself if I can get through it. On a positive note, I can sleep for an extra 40 minutes each morning this week in comparison with my usual work routine.
