As you can see, here is my lovely tartan skirt from Kitten D'Amour. It's one of the pieces, out of my entire wardrobe, that I'm most pleased that bought. I'd been looking for a tartan skirt for many years and even though it's relatively new I've already worn it many times. I love the pink design and the great quality. The ruffle design is a really sweet finish and makes it the perfect skirt for me. It reminds me of the movie Clueless, although I don't have a matching tartan jacket which I can pair it with. I am also wearing a polka dot shirt which you can't really see from the pictures. It came in the same order which I made from Kitten D'Amour. I often find that pair pieces together in an outfit, that I wouldn't normally, which arrived in the same order. It's probably because I like to try on my new items all at once and then realise I like the way they look together. Since it's still cold here I added a polka dot cardigan. That's how the polka dot and tartan pattern mixing came about. In saying that I can see the first signs of spring because wen I started to take photos in this location only a couple of weeks ago there were no pretty flowers.
In other news, this week marks exactly one year since I started at my job. The reason I mention this is because I can definitely say it is the best thing that has ever happened to me. It has given me a life at a time when I felt there wasn't any point to anything. I've never felt such a sense of belonging and fitting in as I do there, I have made really good friends which means a lot to me. So many things have happened which I never thought were possible, I never thought I would be capable of using my law degree or having a career. There have been few things in life I've ever been as enthusiastic about as this job (I even now put it up there with my love for fashion). My positive experiences at work were also the reason why I enrolled in The College of Law. I was never planning to go because I thought I would fail and wasn't good enough. Now a year later I finished my Graduate Diploma of Legal Practice from The College of Law, my law degree from university doesn't feel like a waste of time and I'm about to be admitted as a lawyer. There is no better feeling in the world than achieving what you never thought possible.
