WHAT I WORE – 9 TIL 5

I figured that I’ve mentioned work and workwear on this blog that often that it was about time I actually showed you lovely lot the kind of thing I wear for a day in the office. Admittedly, the scarf isn’t a usual feature but it’s been cold and I’ve been that excited for winter to arrive that I couldn’t resist wearing it with this little ensemble. 

Admittedly, most of the stuff I’m wearing is super old, so I can’t actually remember where some of it came from, however I was so desperate to finally feature this Boohoo coat on my blog that I decided to style the rest of the outfit pieces around it. I actually bought it towards the beginning of the year this year, typically when the weather was actually starting to improve so I haven’t really had chance to wear it yet, but its the perfect overcoat for work in the winter. I wore this little Primark skirt (£3 guys!!) and teamed it with this (way too sheer) white blouse which was kindly donated to me from Mum. I like to keep things smart and simple for work, and so the addition of the tartan print scarf from River Island and the patent monk shoes from Primark really finished the outfit off. 

What sort of things do you wear to the office?

      Thank you! I'm quite lucky that I don't have to dress super smart for work, although I do sometimes wish I could go in sporting a crisp suit and feeling uber businessy, I'd stick out like a sore thumb though! xo

      Thank you lovely! The scarf is a definite winter favourite for me! I think it's going to be making a lot of appearances on this blog over the next few months 🙂 I wish I could wear suits sometimes! But I'd be the only one in the company that did! xo
