Orla Kiely inspired workwear...

I am a massive Orla Kiely fan and I fell in love with her A/W 2013 collection as soon as I saw the pictures from the show.  The weather has been freezing recently and even I, Maria "human radiator" Fallon, have needed to bundle up against the cold. This outfit was my attempt at being an Orla Kiely girl and I quite like how it turned out in the end. It's definitely not fancy but it felt slightly more pulled together than pyjamas!

Jumper: Gap, stolen from Mark, shirt: New Look, skirt: Vero Moda via ASOS, tights: Tesco, shoes: Office. 
I stole this jumper off Mark as the colour matched perfectly with the pattern on my skirt - dontcha just love it when that happens?! ;) I did feel slightly like a schoolgirl when I wore this but I think combining a jumper and checked mini-skirt will have that effect! Someone at work said that I looked like I belonged in the Mad Men office which made me feel a lot happier, I love the clothes in that show!


I don't tend to layer collared shirts or blouses very often but I love the results when I do, maybe I need to be more of a blogger cliché?! I am currently waiting for a hairdressers appointment and my hair is getting a little bit wild at the moment. Brushing it out into soft waves seems to be the only way to keep it under control!


Where do you find office-wear inspiration? How have you been staying warm at work?

I never really seemed that bothered by jumpers until quite recently, where my collection has grown and I don't seem to be able to get enough of them. I love this one with the skirt, very Mad Men indeed!

your hair looks lovely brushed out, getting mine done tomorrow because I have a rare weekday off. I wear the same things to work that I would on the weekend, I'm rather lucky I suppose but I did just buy a blouse to layer under dresses and jumpers x

I LOVE Orla! I am obsessed! If only I had enough beans to buy a dress from her! But you recreate her look amazingly! You look super cute! You DO look like you've fallen straight out of Mad Men, lovely! XXX
