This was an outfit pulled together at the last minute but it turned out quite well I think. I wore this for dress down Friday at work. I still like to dress professionally and more importantly, appropriately even though it’s dress down Friday. It’s still a normal working day and I’m a firm believer that first impressions are extremely important so I’d never want to get caught out wearing an ‘insignificant’ outfit on a ‘significant’ day. That is pretty much my worst nightmare therefore I always plan my outfits accordingly to ensure I never end up in that situation.
The blouse is new in from Topshop. It’s lightweight which is great for summer and it sits well. It is really oversized though so I had to go for the petite option to avoid looking like I was wearing a sack.
The trousers are old from Zara but I took the tag off and gave them their first outing. I’m pretty sure it won’t be the last though. They are very comfortable, flattering and a perfect length for me.
The shoes are also from Topshop. If you haven’t seen these already then where have you been? I think they must have been Topshop’s most wanted item recently. A beautiful pair of shoes which are surprisingly comfortable as long as you don’t cut off the circulation by tying the lace too tight like I did on Friday – oops!! I still had the indentation marks the next day but it was worth it obviously. All in the name of fashion…
Although we are in the middle of a freak heatwave (please make it last forever), a coat is usually necessary due to the typical unpredictable British weather. This one is also from Topshop and is light enough to be thrown on when required.
