How to Style Patterned Trousers for Work

Weekly workwear highlight

Hey Sweeties,

I can’t believe how quickly Friday seems to come around, not that I am complaining but it’s scary how quickly life goes by… and we’re now in June! JUNE! We’re half way through the year already, how crazy!

Anyway, as always, another week means another work outfit highlight for you lovelies and this week my focus is on pattern, and how you can incorporate it into your work look while still remaining formal/business casual. I love these patterned trousers from Warehouse, I admit that I had to play around with some looks before feeling confident I was still looking appropriate, but I am delighted with the result.

Simple Summer Work Style with Stiletto Heels & a Printed Scarf

Weekly workwear highlight

Hey Sweeties,

Another week, another outfit pick of the week. I love this simple look, particularly over the summer as it feels light, fresh and professional. The addition of the stiletto heels help elevate it up a notch but I do also sometimes wear this with flats and it still looks perfectly okay for the workplace. I also think the printed scarf adds that additional level of fun and interest to the overall look.

Morgan shoes

Jumper: New Look (very old)

Scarf: Accessorise

Trousers: River Island

Shoes: Morgan/Schuh 

The trousers from River Island are such a work staple and I love the silhouette they allow me, particularly when paired with heels. I am a big fan of scarves, as mentioned above they can provide a fun element to an outfit; be a point of interest; but also not every woman likes to have her stomach on show and a light scarf is a nice but practical way to add that level of coverage. With my hair wrapped up in a top knot, this really is one of my favourite work outfits.

New Look Haul: Part 2 / Summer Style Ideas for the Work Place

Hey Sweeties,

For those that saw Tuesday’s post (here), you’re now eager to see the haul in better detail, right? Right.

In winter, we tackle the cold weather by layering and for fashion bunnies, this is actually a really fun and easy way to create new looks and for the most part, is quite effortless. In summer, we wear less which means the pieces we wear need to work harder on their own and although for the most part summer attire looks effortless, it is often far from it but where accessories really come into play.

My new workplace operates a business-casual rule Monday – Thursday and on Fridays, it’s casual. Much like my previous workplace (where it was actually far more corporate), I loved finding looks that injected a bit of colour and fun into an outfit and this hasn’t changed. Also, since lopping my long locks off (here), I have been loving my new look and I have been eagerly anticipating the summer to work a new, fresher style.

So with that all in mind, here is how I might be wearing the selection of new pieces I bought recently.

A black t-shirt is a black t-shirt but it is such a wardrobe staple and can pretty much be worn with anything. That being said, there is such a thing as too much black & in the summer this should be avoided where possible. This outfit would be perfect for casual Friday.

How to Jazz up a Work Outfit with Leopard Print Heels

Weekly workwear highlight

Hey Sweeties,

I know it’s been a while and for that I apologise but all being well, at least for the summer while the day is light enough for longer to get the photography done, Weekly Work wear Highlight is back!

As you know I have recently started a new job and with that a new opportunity to freshen up my look. Next week I have two posts scheduled showing you all  some new clothes I have recently picked up, and also how I might style them for the work place. So with that in mind, this week’s work-wear highlight is an outfit you have probably seen before but demonstrates how I like to interpret ‘business casual’ while injecting some fun elements (hint: leopard print heels!).

My Favourite Outfit for Work

Weekly workwear highlight

Hey Sweeties,

Ok ok, I apologise, the outfit you are about to see you have already seen BUT, my photoshoots in the work lift for the most part have now ceased (they now take place in the garden!). So today I thought would be an opportunity to show one of my favourite work outfits in much better light and thus, in much better detail.

Weekly work outfit

Office Shoes

Shirt: New Look
Cardigan: New Look

Skirt: New Look (I think)

Tights: Primark

Shoes: Office

This is such an easy way to inject a bit of fun into the workplace and I quite like the preppy feel of the look. I usually wear the sleeves of my cardigan rolled up so you really get the full effect of the shirt otherwise it would only be seen from the fron which would be a shame.

Until next time x
