Top ASOS | Trousers ASOS | Heels ASOS | Coat H&M | Bag MICHAEL KORS
I’ve just started a brand new job, so lately my mind has been completely focused on work attire. When it comes to work fashion I always choose comfort over style, although I do try and be as stylish as possible!
I don’t know about you but lately I’ve really struggled to find anything decent on the high street, I guess we’re still in that awkward in-between seasons thing. Not to worry ASOS came to my rescue and I had a cheeky 20 per cent off thanks to ELLE magazine, which is always a bonus!
Usually I’m a “try it before you buy it” kinda girl, but with huge discounts and plenty of sale items I couldn’t resist putting everything I saw in my basket. I think my favourite piece is definitely the white wrap over blouse. It’s so light and flattering, and even has a dip hem back. I just love it and it’s so easy just to throw on with anything.
I paired it with these black trousers. I especially love tapered trousers as I’ve read they make you look taller, does it work? My bargain buy was definitely the shoes. I absolutely love the sheer panel detailing along the front and they were a whole £11!
Since they’re new I’ve been wearing them with my Nine To Five Heels insoles. If you love heels but hate the aching and sometimes painful feeling that comes with wearing them, then I would highly recommend you try these. Plus they smell like fresh mint. I’m not kidding, they smell so good I’ve actually made my friends sniff my shoes – the smell is incredible!
Since the sun was shining, which is a strange thing in Sunderland, I decided against my trusty leather jacket and went for my light mac coat. I also choose this because it complemented my nails – oh the small things!
To congratulate me on my new job, my mam and dad bought me this gorgeous Michael Kors keyring to go on my bag. And since then I haven’t gone anywhere without Michael, plus he’s black and goes with everything!
What do you think of my outfit? How would you style it differently? Where do you shop for work attire?
