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?

I Heart Tom

Who is this mystery man I hear you ask? Well actually, it’s not a man but (even better) a pair of shoes!

I recently ordered my first pair of Toms shoes and they arrived yesterday. I wasn’t sure what I would think of them, but I have read so many good reviews that I had to try them for myself.

If you don’t know, Toms are a shoe company who promise that for every pair of shoes they sell, they will donate a pair of shoes to a child in need somewhere in the world. Not only that, but they look great!

I ordered some red Toms as I needed a new pair of red flats for summer, and I thought these would make a welcome change from my usual ballet pumps! Look at the gorgeous detail inside!

Ickle elephants!!

These look Fab with skinny jeans, skirts, shorts and summer dresses. They are also beautifully comfortable – they have a real leather, padded insole so they give your feet good support while making you feel as though you are wearing slippers! I have a feeling they will never be off my feet!

Toms are available from retailers such as ASOS and Schuh, and come in a huge range of colours and styles. Mine are the classic flat canvas in red but they come in a range of materials, colours and prints, and even a wedge style!

These really are feel-good shoes – from a style, comfort and helping others point of view! I have a feeling this may not be my last Toms purchase. In fact, I better just pop over to the Toms website and see what other colours they come in…
