Work it out
It’s such an effort in these dark and cold mornings to plan a nice work outfit to see you through the day and into the night – so a smart get-up for an 18 hour outfit can be a struggle to haul together at 6.50am in November. I went shopping last night for some new additions to my closet to make the mornings less stressful – it’s good to know I can reach in and have some new stylish clothes at hand to see me from the office desk to the bar. Check them out:
Have you been in Warehouse recently? They have undergone a bit of a brand revamp and have really up stepped up their designs too. I found this lovely black lace detail shift dress which is perfect for taking from day to night – it’s a lovely flattering shape that just glides over the body and finishes with a lace trim hem. The flared sleeves are also a night touch and add some extra detail to those wrist areas which are often neglected. I’ve added tights and black patent court shoes to the dress to wear during 9-5, then replace these with some nude strappy sandals for a quick cocktail look. This little black number has £11 off the retail price just now – take one home when you can.
Mini’s have been back on clothes racks for a few years now, but these adorable skirts aren’t going anywhere. I love this one just out in Warehouse also. The ‘lupita tweed pelmet skirt’ is fun, flirty and has all the season’s tweed colours bringing a touch of country life to the city streets. I paired mine with some black tights and pumps for a causal office look, then for going out for food at night I put on some brown knee high boots and a burgundy blouse. Get the Lupita tweed pelmet skirt at warehouse.co.uk.
Don’t be alarmed by the sparkling neckline on this Oasis jumpsuit, I tone it down with a smart black blazer for those important Friday morning meetings, and then take it off for going out with my work colleagues. This 80s all-in-one revival makes a nice change when you get a bit tired of wearing dresses or jeans all the time. It’s a beautiful showstopper which shows off all the right place and can be adaptable for work or a night out on town. So slip on your heels grab a clutch and you’re ready to go!
