Casual Friday: Wet Winter

It’s Friday. Which means the last day of the working week! But it also means dress down time at work: often a slightly stressful situation, as an office appropriate outfit is required, but you still want to be able to reflect your personal style!

Today I’ve decided to go with a denim pencil skirt as it is an appropriate length and style for the office, but the denim makes it much more relaxed for casual Friday! I’ve teamed my skirt with a cream linen t-shirt by Eleven Paris @ ASOS which is covered in pale blue stars. The pattern makes the top stylish and relaxed but not too out-there for the office. To finish off, I’ve added a purple cardi by Rocha John Rocha at Debenhams and a burgundy snood from New Look. This adds a little colour to the outfit which cheers me up in this grey, wet weather we are having at the moment!

Accessories wise, I’ve chosen black patent ankle boots from Topshop with a block heel (waterproof and comfortable for rushing sounds at work!). Finally, a purple Jasper Conran handbag and a spritz off Britney Spears Fantasy Twist, and I’m good to go!

I love painting my nails with a really funky design on a Thursday night. Last night I decided to go for a navy polish, which is by Barry M (shade number 292). Barry M is a great brand for good quality polish at a reasonable price! I added some pale purple gems to my ring finger nail which adds a bit of glamour! These nails will take me through casual Friday and onto the weekend nicely!

Sunday Sale Shopping!

I went for wander around the shops yesterday and I was delighted to see that there were a few good sales on at the moment! I did well at Oasis and GAP where I picked up some pretty tops:

Top row (L-R): Mint Butterfly Shortsleeve Knit (Oasis); Anchor Shortsleeve Knit (Oasis); Gold Fine Tee (Oasis).
Bottom Row (L-R): Navy Stripe V-neck Knit (GAP); Leopard Cardigan (GAP); Coloured Camis (GAP).

The Oasis Mint Knit is lovely for warmer weather and the colour is beautiful. It is covered in little silver butterflies which adds a lovely feminine twist. The Oasis Anchor Knit and GAP Stripe Knit make me want to go sailing in the sunshine (anyone holding a yacht party soon!? Invites addressed to Entirely Ezmirelda please!). There is a very subtle leopard design on the Oasis Gold Tee which adds a little extra something (you can make this out more clearly on the product page – the link below the photo). The leopard cardi is so versatile and can be dressed up or down. And finally some cute pastel toned lace camisoles for layering. Can’t wait to style my new goodies!

Have you picked up anything nice in the sales recently? Let me know – I love a bargain!
