As rather a number of things have changed in my life recently, an update is in order.
- I finished my professional law exams in June, which means I have now completed the academic stage of my legal training.
- I got a job in an office, so I'm now working regular 9 to 5(.30) hours and becoming incredibly boring.
- I've moved to the beautiful Yorkshire city of Leeds. A great geographical leap from the great Yorkshire city of York, I'm sure you'll agree.
Thanks to the above I have been buying and wearing mostly office-appropriate clothes and enjoying the simplicity of a t-shirt and jeans at weekends.
As for where I particularly want this blog to be, or to go, I'm not yet sure. I've always enjoyed writing and I would like to make this a space where I can do that.
Whether or not I want to post outfit pictures regularly is something I haven't worked out for myself, but I'm discovering a rather inappropriately enthusiastic love for workwear. This weekend I found myself in Next and M&S and most people shopping around me were at least 20 years my senior. Not even sorry. Sharing my new passion for dressing like a middle-aged woman might just be the little creative outlet I need. (Working in an admin job can be very rewarding when the project is right, but I wouldn't call it creative per se.)
Then again I'm not exactly fashion-forward and I feel like the crafting of the words is the thing that make me happy. I might do a few more posts that are nothing to do with clothes or shopping at all. I'm not under the impression this is particularly the place to publish my 500-word rants about the trials of being a West Ham United fan, but I do want to write more about what I do with my life. After all, it takes me about 10 minutes to get dressed in the morning, so it seems strange to devote 100% of my blog to it.
Seeing as I haven't been browsing blogs with any regularity for far too long, I'm now off to have a peek at the various people I used to follow with almost religious fervour. Do let me know if you've found anyone fantastic recently - I'm always looking for brilliant people who can inspire me whether it be about clothes, politics, comedy or sport.
