This Week's Wardrobe #1

Let me caveat this post straight off by saying I am no style blogger. I think one glance at the snaps below clears that right up! The point here isn't to give anyone fashion inspiration; there are plenty of amazing and very well-dressed blogging ladies out there to cover everyone's tastes.

I like clothes. I have certain styles that I'm most comfortable with and then every now and again I'll add in a few different bits and bobs and attempt to switch it up a bit. Blacks and neutrals are my safe place though.

I came up with this idea as a way of making myself shake things up a bit, especially with my work wear. If I document my outfits every day then maybe I'll be more inclined to have some variety and interest on a daily basis.

I am someone who is guilty of buying new things but still sticking to my old basics.
I also suffer from 'I have to leave in 5 mins so what can I grab from my wardrobe/floor/laundry that I know will work?'
Everyone should have a handful of safe 'go to' outfits for when they're short of time or inspiration, but I just stick to mine all the time.
It'll be interesting to see how this collection of posts builds up. I'm sure you'll notice a pattern. I am a creature of habit.

All comments and suggestions on my ever-similar wardrobe are most welcome : ) Honestly, I could do with the help.
Please tell me I'm not alone in drab weekly work-wear cycle?

(It might be worth noting that I don't work in one of those super trendy/young office environments where you can wear anything that might be found in the latest ASOS magazine. No cute tailored shorts or cut out dresses but a bit of personality is definitely okay. Sometimes (just sometimes) I like to wear something a bit weird just for the comments from colleagues).


  1. Some lovely outfits! :)

  2. I really like Friday's jumper/cardie. I have been trying to experiment with a pencil skirt at work :/, not sure how well I'm getting on with it.


  3. Thanks love :) I have attempted the pencil skirt but it just doesn't 'feel' right. Maybe I'll give it another go? Shoes always seem to mess up any skirt outfits for me though xxx
