Panda print...

As we still seem to be in the midst of winter (thick jumpers and boots in May, really?!) I have been reaching for cosy layers at work and this outfit has been one of my favourites. This panda print blazer doesn't get worn anywhere near enough and it was the perfect way to make plain trousers and a stripy top more interesting. It is so easy to repeat the same outfits over and over again when choosing what to wear to work so anything that shakes me out of my comfort zone is a good idea! Saying that, I have been wearing these trousers a lot recently. Slim fit trousers in interesting colours will always  have a place in my work wardrobe, they are such an easy way to introduce colour into the office without looking like an escaped clown being too garish...

Blazer: Primark, jumper:Topshop, top: Oasis, trousers: Matalan via charity shop, shoes: Dorothy Perkins,  necklace: Miss Selfridge
This jumper is another neglected favourite, it's a bit too flimsy for the depths of winter but it is ideal for the horrible weather we have been having recently. It's warm enough for the chilly mornings but the short sleeves come into their own by the afternoon. I imagine it would look fab with one of my maxi skirt too, I love  good cosy jumper! Can you tell that the heating in our building is atrocious?!

What do you wear when the weather is rubbish?

Well the weather IS rubbish today and I have already failed at sensible dressing as I just put on something nice and summery and forgot to bring a coat, thinking it would be like yesterday.

Ah that blazer is just absolutely adorable! I'm in love! Yes I know what you mean about weather, I woke up and it was FREEZING this morning. I suppose we are a week off winter in NZ but still..
