Striped Beige Blazer: A Look For The Office

This is the outfit I wore to the office today. I bought the black and beige striped blazer a few months ago but the weather has been unpredictable so I have never had the chance to wear it! Today was forecast to be dry so I thought I would take my chance.

The blazer is by Principles at Debenhams. I styled it with a fawn coloured sleeveless blouse top from Dorothy Perkins, skinny black trousers from GAP (previously worn in this post) and leopard print flat ballet pumps from Primark.

I accessoried with my pewter Fiorelli Garland handbag (previously featured here), gold and black beaded bracelets I was given as a gift and a chunky gold necklace from Topshop.

I love the way the colours of the blouse, blazer and bag complement one another. However to stop the look being too matchy-matchy, I chose leopard print pumps which add an extra dimension.

What do you think of this look for the office?

Florals and Prints

I was browsing on ASOS.com earlier and noticed how many cute items they have with pretty prints and unique details. Here is a round-up of my favourites!

Floral Peplum Dress (£35), Flower Print TOMS (£40), Pink Jacket (£60), Blue Floral Midi Skirt (£40), Strawberry Print Sleeveless Blouse (£29), Gold Toe Cap Blue Floral Heels (£45) and Heart Knee Skinny Jeans (£35) all ASOS.

I love all of the floral prints, they are so fresh and feminine! The gold toe-capped heels are so sexy and made me think of a pin-up girl. The little pink jacket is so versatile and could be worn with dresses or jeans. I just can’t resist those little hearts on the knees of the jeans – how adorable! I love a kookie print, and the strawberry print shirt does this beautifully without being too over the top. For fashionistas who also require comfort,  my beloved TOMS are available in this beautiful multi-coloured flower print! I want them all!

Casual Friday: Pink Denim

I’m loving coloured denim at the moment so for casual Friday yesterday I thought I’d break out my pink jeans.

Pink denim by Salt Works Jeans @TK Maxx, Bird Print top by Warehouse.

I pared them with is cute bird print tee from Warehouse, and my old faithful brown ballet pumps from Faith:

These are ancient and battered but so comfy and seem to go with everything!

I finished off the look with seventies style tousled waves…

…and for a touch of movie star glamour, a pink chiffon scarf from Oasis.

ASOS Sale Swag

ASOS are currently having a sale and I picked up the following goodies…

ASOS Sale Swag

This warehouse blouse is covered in diamonte and stud detail and is really lux. This Miss Sixty top is perfect for nights out and has a very sexy back! I love the anchor detail on the skirt. I’m really into coloured denim at the moment and can’t wait for these red skinny jeans to arrive! Believe it or not, I don’t own a red handbag and this Mango quilted number will fill this gap in my wardrobe! And finally these gorgeous flats are classy and will go with everything.

What did you pick up in the ASOS sale?
