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 don’t know about you, but I love to see what other people are carrying in their handbags! Maybe I’m just a nosy person but there’s something really interesting about finding out what essentials we can’t get through the day without! There are also regular articles in the news about womens’ handbags getting heavier these days. So with these thoughts in mind, I thought I would share what I carry around with me day-to-day!
