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.
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!
