Casual Work Wear

Today was my first day as a language assistant in a school here in Murcia. It still is my first day as it is only midday but I am currently waiting to hear from el director to see if he has sorted my timetable and wants me to come in for the afternoon. It is all very exciting!
Over the weekend, I was thinking to myself what on Earth am I going to wear for school?! I love saying that: school. Anyway, I settled for my Zara black maxi skirt, a patterned t-shirt and a short sleeved, long(ish) cardigan that Mum bought me for Christmas. With my trusty black boots to finish it off. It is a very casual look, but a little less casual than black leggings and a t-shirt. This kind of outfit will come out at some point during the week.
I love doing these kind of outfit posts so feast your beautiful eyes on this casual work wear one.
An outfit for every day of the week.
As always, these outfits have been made up from the Topshop and River Island clothes. I really can't wait to go home at Easter and have a decent shopping day in town.
I've gone for a mixture of looks to keep it interesting. I can't imagine the day when (if!) I have to wear a plain trouser/skirt suit every day for five days of the week. If I have anything to do with my career path (which obviously I do) I will be going to the office in things like this. Maybe not the jeans as that may be too casual. Over in Spain, pretty much anything goes so that is why a pair of jeans have graced the outfit board.
This morning, I was shown around the school a little bit. It is huge. Like I said, I haven't received my horario (timetable) yet which I may get if they call me to go back in this afternoon. Fingers crossed I get it today or tomorrow so that I can sort Madrid and home out!

January is already over and February is already upon us. Time goes too quickly for my liking. Before you know it, the Christmas decs will be going up in the streets again and that will be another year of our lives over and done with.
Anyway, back to the now and not the future, as always here on SG, I have created an inspiration board for the coming month.
February is the month of all things love thanks to St Valentine's Day which is why I have gone for the theme of love as the base of this inspiration board. We have rose-like hair which is something that I would love to be able to do with my hair as well as classic roses and pale pink and white fashion. There are also the obvious images of love: a romantic couple, more flowers, hearts etc.
I also wanted to put what was inspiring me this month: the music of Queen (like every month one day or another), warm, homemade tomato soup which I which I could eat right now! I remember making a really good tomato soup when I was in school between the ages of 12 and 14. I wouldn't know how to do it now though. The aspect of young, wild and free because that is what I am, not so much wild but young and free. Plus, a very cool way of keeping all my earrings in shape. I need to invest in a dream catcher when I go home, which is at the end of next month!
This weekend has been a lazy one compared to the last. This time last weekend I was in The Union stuffing my face with a full monte beef burger with all the trimmings: bacon, cheese, fries, salad - Mmmm. Now I am back on rations. I have spent the past two days in bed despite the lovely weather outside, as well as tidy and change my room about. I've been missing out on highs of 28 degrees.
Tomorrow, this will all change as I start my new job in a local school. I am very excited, especially after finalising all of the paperwork last week. I am not so excited for the 8:55am start. But, this means that I will be out and about in the lovely warm city of Murcia. I'm not complaining.
Another exciting thing that happened this weekend (which will have it's own post) is that me and my friend Laura have booked our travels for June! Cordoba, Seville, Granada, Marbella and the White Island, Ibiza are all on the cards to kick off my summer holidays this year!
