A bright blue blazer and lots of red lipstick....

It's just typical, I really loved this outfit but all of the photos came out looking really bizarre, mainly due to the light. I have to say (starting early on the moaning here!) I really miss taking photos outside during the winter, natural light is way more flattering first thing! I am lucky enough to be able to wear nearly anything to work and  my work outfits tend to be pretty casual but I try to incorporate smarter elements, like this blazer, and keep my skirt lengths relatively appropriate. 

Blazer: c/o Matalan, top: Primark, skirt: French Connection, shoes: c/o Spratoo
There's nothing more annoying than your hair getting in your eyes as you are trying to work and whilst I love me a good topknot (#bloggercliche) it can look a bit strange at work! Recently I have been swooshing it back (technical term) and just pinning it into place with kirby grips. I love victory rolls but I can never really manage them, I think I need to trawl YouTube for some tips! My preferred red daytime lipstick is a Mac one which I got from the Cosmetics Company at Swindon designer outlet but I have never seen any lipsticks with red tubes before or since, any ideas if they are from a special collection? 


Recently I have really loved French Connection (a shop I only ever look at when stuff is on sale!) and when I saw this skirt, I fell in love. Believe it or not, I don't actually have a black knee length skirt and it is such a wardrobe staple. I can't wait to layer this up with jumpers and ankle boots! I have barely taken these shoes off recently, they fit my foot like a glove and they are so comfortable! Now Betty London just need to do them in every colour...

You look great here, Maria. Lovely outfit and I'm in awe of the fact you wear lippy every day- I always feel so strange in it that I usually take it off before I get to work!

The french connection sale is soo good at the moment isn't it?! Love the skirt! Really love your hair like this too. I practically always have a topknot at home, but I feel weird leaving the house like that so always let it down before I go out!

Your hair looks lovely here, so glamorous! ;) The pop of cobalt is also yummy, such a fab statement piece.
