Mondays Stuck On Repeat

So... this past week has been a massive fail! My housemate decided that being the sharing, caring person he is, he should pass his cold onto me. Cue a Jen of Doom, horrible ear infection and several days fighting the urge to faceplant my desk and take a nap :( This also means that I haven't done anything I planned on doing; both skirt and essay are glaring at me feeling unloved.

But! It's a new week and I'm starting to feel much, much better. I even ventured out of the house to join in leaving drinks for my cake-baking, bed-building partner in crime Jade. She's going back to adventure camp where she works (I have to admit to being very jealous of her job!) and won't be home again until November. Sob! I put a fancy dress on and we actually enjoyed lashings of ginger beer and cake...

As I don't have anything else to report, have some pictures of my pretty outfit :)

I don't know if I look deep in thought here, or if it looks like I'm checking my dress for dirt...!

These are my absolute favourite shoes! I found them on a random vintage stall at Ely market... they claim to be from the 1920s. Now, I'm no fashion historian but I don't think they date back that far in any way! They are beautiful though and the only heels I can happily walk around in all day :)

I tied my scarf in a huge bow at the side of my neck. I thought it looked fab, but I don't think the Monday evening Wetherspoons audience was expecting such flounce. And it made eating custard a bit tricky...

Anyway, I hope you all are planning a lovely week. It's half term for me which means no evening work and lots of time to catch up on sewing and essays.
