FOR EVERYDAY WEAR

imageimage

Hello and happy Monday!

During my glorious shopping days, I loved purchasing all my work basics at Zara, Anthropologie and Banana Republic. Although Zara finally opened stores in Australia we’re still patiently waiting on the others. Just as well since I have banned myself from buying any new clothing this year but….I am really hoping for Anthropolie to be here some day.

Today’s outfit for work is a neat casual ensemble of overseas purchases. A blazer and bag from London, top and trousers from the States and shoes from Hong Kong. It doesn’t sound healthy for our Australian economy however we unfortunately aren’t as competitive on stock or price.

Next year, whilst I do plan to refresh my wardrobe, I’m thinking I could do more trift (I happen to live in area full of amazing vintage stores) shopping locally. That way I will be throwing money into our economy and still contributing to less consumerism. This plan sounds exciting already doesn’t it?

SNAPPED

Snaps are quickly taken before I head off to work. On days like today it’s still dark out so unfortunately the lighting has worked against the mobile phone photography.

I’ve started the week with my boots over some sporty trousers with leather look zipper pockets. A huge plus about these trousers is that they have an elasticated waist. This was coupled with a simple royal blue top, tailored blazer and long strap vintage bag.

Once again thanks for stopping by and I hope you all have a wonderful week ahead.

CORPORATE MEETS PUNK

Black on black on black isn’t foreign to me, however layering chains is. I absolutely love this concept. Not only does it break up all the black I am wearing, it also provides a more edgy punk look. I can’t wait to layer these chains with a more casual outfit.

Thanks for reading and hope you are having a great week so far.

COMFORTABLE IN FLATS

Most of the time I am in heels for work. I feel it suits my general work  attire and helps that fact that I am vertically challenged.

I didn’t feel like wearing heels today though and a pair of pumps may have been more suitable for this outfit but these brogues are just as stylish and so very comfortable.

Thanks for reading and have a wonderful day.

INTO THE BLUE

 

Hello lovelies,

I decided to stick with the blue theme for work this week. I own so many black clothes so Incorporating a blue theme  has made me realise how much coloured items I do own. This outfit is definitely another take on the preppy look.

FIT FOR WORK

 

I love wearing fitted pencil dresses. This number is an old splurge during my trip to London a few years back. Today marks the second day that I have worn it. Yay to getting my post baby body back.

PREPPED UP

Day 84 – All prepped up!

I first fell in love with the preppy look when I started watching Gossip Girl and saw how perfectly preppy Blair Waldorf looked.

This week I have decided to use Blair Waldorf as my style inspiration and show you my take on looking preppy for work rather than school. It’s also a great excuse to make use of my neglected glasses.

This is the first of a few outfits that I have put together for this week. Hope you love.
