Matalan style project: workwear...

When Matalan asked me if I wanted to get involved in their style project I couldn't have said yes any quicker. Some of my favourite bloggers have participated in it and I love seeing all the different looks that people come up with for the same theme- it's so interesting to see what pieces everyone is drawn to! I was really impressed by how far my voucher stretched too, I managed to get the top, trousers, blazer and shoes for £50, how amazing is that?! I haven't actually worn this into work yet (hate the snow!) but as soon as the ice disappears, this will be top of the pile to wear! 

Blazer: Matalan, top: Matalan, trousers: Matalan, shoes: Matalan. (all products c/o Matalan)
 You know how much I love bright colours and this blazer is the perfect way to introduce a splash of colour into your work wardrobe, even in the most conservative of offices. The trousers may be a bit too 'out there' for the majority of people but the impeccable cut and the smart top and blazer makes them so easy to wear. I think the thing with jazzy trousers, is to keep the rest of the outfit simple...


I chose this top as I am always looking for thin layers to wear into work. My office goes from being freezing cold to boiling hot within the space of an hour and you need something that helps to keep you at a constant temperature. I love the way this top drapes and the batwing sleeves contrast with the fitted sleeves and make it more interesting than a bog standard white t-shirt. The devil really is in the details...


Tying in the red detail of the trousers with my favourite lipstick of the moment; Model's Own lipstick in 'Red Wine', the perfect shade of pinky red.

Amazing outfit Maria, definitely workwear with a twist! Its so nice to see all this colour and pattern for an office environment, all M&S seem to think is appropriate is never ending black trousers!
