I always used to feel like a bit of a cop out when I posted about what I wore to work but I figured I spend 5 days out of 7 at work and my blog is supposed to reflect my every day life so I'm afraid you have many more of these posts to come! (
Sorry, not sorry) I have been wearing a lot of my sheer blouses for work recently and trying to make them a bit more office appropriate!
|Dress: Next, blouse:Zara, necklace: Topshop, loafers: Office|
One of my colleagues remarked that they thought I looked "a bit Miss Moneypenny" in this dress and I can see what she means. The wiggle shape definitely reminds of something that someone from Mad Men would have worn to their office in the 1960s...
I have had this blouse from Zara for a few years now but it has only been worn a handful of times due to the shape. It is almost tunic length, but the panel above the hem is gathered in such a way that the fit is downright bizarre and rather unflattering, when I attempt to wear it with slim trousers, so I tend to layer it with skirts and dresses instead. I probably shouldn't have bought it as it is not particularly flattering and yet the colour and print made me throw caution to the wind.
Wearing 'Percolated Pink' by Max Factor and a much loved ring which I found in the bottom of my handbag.
Would you wear 'unflattering' clothes just because you liked them? Can you make sheer blouses office appropriate?
