Back to work : red and swirly

My first day back at the office after three weeks off, rough day *ugh* :P I stayed up late watching the Olympic closing ceremonies. I totally loved it, 3hours sing a long, very British. :) I even got to see the Spice Girls reunite, yay *LoL* My favourite part being Fatboy Slim and his gigantic jellyfish *dance*

Im sorry for the squinting look, too much suuuuuun. ;) Which I dont mind naturally, seems like summer is paying us a 2 days visit. ;) I should have worn my sunglasses oh well....Im not sure I like how I look wearing sunglasses, I feel stupid. :P

A closeup, I love the cutouts in the top, makes it stand out. :) And Im all about standing out outfitwise *giggles*

Another love of mine, swirly skirts. :) I love how the wind grabs and let go. :P

My new sandals, I have been on the lookout for gladiator sandals and I stumbled upon a pair in Denmark. My toenails are in desperate need of colour, so I headed to the mall today and bought me a brigh red nail polish from Essie, named Fifth Avenue. Im not really into nail polish but its growing on me and I cant wait to do my toes later tonight. ;)

What Im wearing:

Top from HM (brand new)
Maxiskirt from Primark
Sandals from Fly London (new/sale)

    Ohhh... I like you more and more! :-) I also wore nautical the first day at the office (proofs soon at a blog close to you) and I also watched and liked the closing ceremony yesterday. Isn't it enough for you Norweigans to always beat us in the winter olympics? Congratulations to two gold medals, well done! The maxi and the top are fantastic! Sorry, but I have to keep this post short, since I need to buy the top from H&M NOW!

  4. Love the pretty striped skirt with the bright top! Great look. ;)

  5. I love everything about this look! From the maxi striped skirt, to the blouse cut outs, and the amazing sandals. I've almost broken over and ordered those (in blue) a number of times. I worried about the fit, but yours look great.

    I'm kinda into maxi and stripes these day! Very pretty!

  7. You look gorgeous, Izzy! I love the striped skirt and the cutouts on the top!

  8. @Megan - Thank yous! :)

    @Patti@not dead yet style - Thank you so much! The same to you for hosting Visible Monday! :)

    @fourseasonsonewardrobe - Aaaw how sweet of you to say. :) I guess I have thing for stripes and nautical lately, new to me styles actually,never dressed like that pre-blogging. :) Heh I didnt even know we got more gold medals than you. :P But at least you got one or? :) I know Denmark got the most medals of the Nordic countries though. :) Yes, you should buy this top, its awsome! :)

    @CC - Thank you for visiting and leaving a comment. I really appreciate it. :)

    @Megan Mae - Oh, thank you! :) Yea I was in two minds about the sandals myself, but then they were on sale, 50% off, so what the heck. :) They fit me quite well I think, I went down a size though. They are suprisingly comfortable, but then again Fly Londons usually are. ;)

    @gracefully50 - Thank you visiting and leaving such a kind comment. I really appreciate it! :) Yea this is my first maxi actually, I love it to bits. :)

    @Sheila - Aww, thank you! :)

  9. I can't believe that top is from H&M, it's so lovely on you! The colour is just right with your amazing skirt! I watched the Olympics too - and sang along so loud that my daughter couldn't sleep! Did Denmark beat both Norway and Sweden this time?

  10. Red, white and blue, always a winning combination!
    Love the skirt, and the cut-out top is brilliant. Can't beat a nautical vibe, it looks fabulous! xxx

  11. Hello! It's Rosemary from England. I hope you had a great holiday. Lovely to see your striped skirt. I LOVE stripes. Isn't it great to have a bit of good weather?

    Cheers from England,

  12. @kaffesoester - Yea it was the best closing ceremony ever, so many great songs from when I was young and promising. :P Yea, this top is superb, I love HM. :)Yup, I believe Denmark got the most medals among the Scandinavian countries. Well done!! :)

    @pastcaring - Thanks a lot! :)

    @Rosemary the shopper - I had a lovely holiday thanks. :) Yea I think I have a stripes and nautical fever at the moment. ;) Yea its fantastic to see the sun!! :)

  13. I love this look too, especially the bold skirt that blows in the wind. Doesn't that feel fantastic!? It makes me sad that men can't experience that same freedom of style... The first day back - you survived! Good job.

  14. @Melanie - Many thanks! :) Yup bold skirt blowing is my cup of tea. :) Yea its a pity men dont get to dress up and play with clothes like we do. :)Although there are some that do...:P

  15. What a lovely post! Your blog is lovely by the way! xx

  16. @Emma McCartney - aaaw, thank you!! :) Thanks for popping by and leaving the sweetest comment. :)
