Work outfits have different requirements than weekend outfits: they need to be decent, for a start, so no cropped tops, no short skirt/bare leg combos, no cleavage (not that I ever get my baps out anyway), and nothing too clingy. They also have to be quick and easy to put on (so boots with millions of buckles and back-fastening jumpsuits are out), and be able to cope with my office's schizophrenic heating system (which does freezing or boiling, but little in between). I also try and avoid anything overly 'fashiony' for work - just because something is all the rage for SS'13 doesn't mean that my boss is going to appreciate it! And the final thing: even though my office is very casual, it wouldn't hurt for me to look a tiny bit professional during the week (especially as of next week I will be managing my own team...!).
So here is what I wore this week...
Monday - black: Crea Concept dress, Jean-Pierre Braganza jacket, black Office knee boots (not pictured)
Tuesday - casual: Topshop shirt and black skinny jeans (not pictured), H&M jumper, Russell & Bromley tan riding boots
Wednesday - print: Monki dress, Oasis jacket, Urban Outfitters lace-up ankle boots (not pictured)
Thursday - bright: COS skirt, H&M jumper and necklace, Topshop navy chunky platform shoes (not pictured)
Friday - cosy: working from home in my dressing gown!
So far it seems to be working in reducing my morning stress, as I knew that there was no need for outfit stress or last-minute ironing... do you plan your outfits, or do you freestyle it every day?
