Working Wardrobe

Yesterday, I appeared in Brinja's What I Wore This Week feature - check out the original post here. Brinja is one of my favourite blogs, I love a peak into her world and especially love the photographs of her gorgeous shop and little doll house she is constructing which is based on her own home.

I work in a fairly conservative office where business suits really should be the norm. But as I shudder at the very thought of 'business suits', I spend most days hunting through my dress collection and hope for the best that this will not be the day I get pulled up on my 'dress-code'. So I thought I would post my working week wardrobe that featured on Brinja's blog here too.


Monday

H&M green print dress ❖ John Lewis cream tights ❖ M&S green shoes ❖ Reiss mushroom bag

Tuesday

Top Shop black dress ❖ H&M black tee shirt ❖ Gucci silver buckle belt ❖ Tabio 110 dernier black tights ❖ Russell & Bromley patent studded bag & flats

Wednesday

Ebay vintage cream dress ❖ M&S cream slip ❖ H&M black & gold belt ❖ Tabio 110 dernier black tights ❖ Salvatore Ferragamo vintage bow pumps ❖ Gucci bag

Thursday

Urban Buzz silk dress ❖ Accessorize bow belt ❖ Tabio polka tights ❖ Luella lilac bag ❖ Miu Miu pink buckle shoes

Friday
Blue Inc heart dress ❖ Tabio 110 dark grey tights ❖ Top Shop pink suede shoes ❖ Gucci bag

  3. Those outfits are really nice, I wish you luck on not getting pulled up on the dresscode, it would be a shame for you to have to change your style just for work...

  4. You have the best eye for piecing these beautiful outfits together. The other girls that work with you must be constantly jealous of your amazing dress collection!! (I know I would be!)

  38. Amazing! I think exactly like you, if I had to wear business suits everyday...ahh I feel clothes are a reflection of our personality and that hiding our style doesn't do good to our work as we can't be completely comfortable and therefore do our best.
