Cookie monster

I don't show you many of my work outfits because i think they are pretty drab most of the time and tend to be clothes that i have moved from my pretty going out dresses pile onto the well there ok so i'll wear them to work pile. Do any of you do that with clothes? when they loose the sparkle do you demote them?
So i bought this dress from dorothy perkins before i went on holiday last year i'd been eyeing it up for weeks then it went into the sale for £18 and sold out in my size! But i decided it looked stretchy enough so i tried the size down and thankfully it fit. This is a size 20 and a little tight around the girls but not enough that it's uncomfortable.

i didn't realise the bra was so visible

The little black cardigan is from asda ages ago but they still so similar styles during the summer it cost about £6 and the shoes are primark.
I was also wearing the necklace that the hubby got me when we went to lifes big canvas shop in leeds. Cookie monster always reminds me of my hubby so the necklace was a lovely gift.
