How to Wear Khaki Green Trousers to Work

Hey Sweeties,

I am so excited about today’s post which sounds really sad, but I have been desperate to work a look around a pair of khaki green trousers I bought a few months ago from Banana Republic. I  mentioned them in a previous post, saying how I knew I could -with the right combination of other items- pull them off for work… and I finally have!

Black and Stripey in the Workplace

Hey Sweeties,

How gorgeous has the weather been this week, so hot! I hope it continues into the weekend!

The below outfit was worn on Wednesday -the hottest day on record- so knowing it would be so hot (but fortunately our office has air con that sometimes can feel like you’re sat in the arctic), I needed to wear something that was super simple, not layered but loose enough so that I didn’t get too uncomfortable sat at my desk and this stripey dress fitted the bill perfectly!

My legs do not seem to photograph well in these strappy heeled sandals but these were a great addition to the outfit to still keep it all formal enough for the office, while adding in a summery vibe.

A Simple Skirt and Shirt Combo for Work

Weekly workwear highlight

Hey Sweeties,

I have had such a busy week! Work aside which has been quite intense, I have been out every night (pilates, yoga, hockey & Zumba) and if you’re reading this on Friday evening, I’m off for dinner, drinks and a trip to the cinema with work which I think has been well earned. What have you guys been up to?

On the work front, I made a real effort this week to try and show you something different, conscious that during the last couple of these posts I haven’t moved too far away from my faithful River Island black trousers; but they are SUCH a staple and so versatile.

Anyway.

Like I said I made a real effort this week to try out a new combination of items from my wardrobe and this is kind of what I am trying to do going forward, whereby at least once a week I aim to achieve this.  Here is this week’s outfit:

How to Accessorise with Skulls in the Workplace

Hey Sweeties,

You know it’s Friday when this post pops into your social media/Bloglovin/reader feeds! How has your week been? Aside from my day job, I have spent quite a lot of time this week planning future blog posts and trying to introduce some new ideas into my content. Sometimes it’s just so hard finding the time to do this and write without risk of slipping in my blog schedule -anyone else struggle with this?

In other news, this week I have done two new things! I experienced my first Yoga and Zumba classes at my gym! Both I thoroughly enjoyed and (I feel) work together well; I get that full fun work out with Zumba, and in Yoga, I take an hour to myself to listen to my body and stretch, releasing tensions and stresses following too many hours sat at my desk. I am at my happiest when I am fit and healthy and I love keeping active!

Anyway, here is this week’s work wear highlight and in today’s post, I show you how effectively a fun scarf can add a level of fun and interest to an otherwise simple outfit for the workplace.

Black, Pink & Grey – How to Mix Colour Combinations at Work

Weekly workwear highlight

Hey Sweeties,

I can’t get over with how quickly Fridays come around, I’ve been at my new job almost 5 weeks now -the time has just flown by!

I love the look this week, the trousers have become such a work staple as have the shoes but this shirt I can’t believe I haven’t worn sooner! I don’t even remember getting it but I know I have had it a long time, and I mean probably years and yet never worn it. I think the combination of black, pink and grey go really well together, look so effortless, and overall, a great combination. What do you think?
