Scottie dogs...

This outfit is made up of items that I wear all the time but haven't actually shown on the blog. I have had this wrap cardigan for years and years and despite being part of a La Senza pyjama set (!) it is one of the smarter cardigans I own and I have worn it nearly to death. I think wrap cardigans had a bit of a revival after Black Swan and when they are as cosy as this, you can see why! These photos make it look like it is the same colour as the skirt but in real life it is much more glittery- I think my black glittery boots would look amazing with this outfit! 

Cardigan: La Senza (pyjama set!) blouse: NW3 by Hobbs, skirt: Monki, tights: ASDA, shoes: Office
This skirt has been a workwear staple for me, I love full skirts (see evidence) and the dark wool is perfect for adding some gravitas to an otherwise frivolous shape. I bought it from Monki and it is no exaggeration to say that Monki now makes up a sizeable portion of my wardrobe...


The other part? It's crammed with beauties from Hobbs! I love the scottie print on this shirt so much that I also have the dress in the same adorable print. I mean what could be cuter than mini scottie dogs frolicking with a ball?! I think everyone should have a slightly smarter printed blouse in their wardrobe- this one is so versatile but could add a little fun into the most corporate of offices, especially when you have the Monday morning blues!


Which of your everyday outfits never make it to the blog? What are your workwear staples?

I really love the blouse, such a delicate colour! My everyday outfits are just jeans and jumpers, today for instance I'm all in black.. xx

Would never have guessed that cardi was from a pajama set if you hadn't mentioned it! Great find! :) The print on the blouse is adorable & I love the pale blue on you, you really suit pastels! I love Monki too, I'm glad I don't live near one though, or I'd be in there all the time! Ha!

I love the shape of the skirt, skater skirts are so flattering. I tend to go for that shape too. You look lovely as always Maria!

I wear jeans all the time but they hardly ever make it to the blog! Other than that I'm pretty realistic with what I wear posts, but IRL I'm much more boring half the time haha!

I love this print on you lovely, so sweeeeeet! Yet to find a lab print but I'll find one ;) ♥ Claire @ Jazzpad
