Cosy workwear...

When the weather is awful, all I want to do is curl up in a cosy jumper under a duvet but unfortunately I have to go to work! To make the gloomy days a little bit nicer, I have been pairing my jazziest jumpers with skirts for some fun but practical outfits. In the past week or so, I have worn lime green, neon pink and an owl print jumpers but I think this sequinned jumper is my favourite so far! I always seem to wear this skirt with a teal top, it's slightly more interesting than cream or red and I will never pass up on the opportunity to wear sequins! I bought this jumper as a cheap alternative to a Hobbs one and actually I prefer this one as it is much thinner but still really warm and cosy! I know some of you will be shocked at my choice of tights but luckily I get a lift to work and so these 15 deniers are the perfect match for a heated office. If I was outside though it would be a completely different story!

Jumper: Tu at Sainsbury's, top (not seen): Dorothy Perkins, skirt: Vero Moda via ASOS, shoes: ASDA
You can't really see it here but I even wore eyeliner/eye shadow! Since sorting through all of my make-up (god bless you Ikea trolley!) I have been able to see all the products I actually own. My skin has calmed down recently and I think this is mainly due to this Dr Jart + Platinum BB cream- expensive but oh so brilliant! I was so excited when I found this necklace in a bag recently, I thought I had lost it so I was really pleased to have it back, there's nothing better than rediscovering old favourites...


I have had a real thing for patterned bottoms recently, they are so easy to wear and way more interesting than my jeans which I have being trying to wean myself off, I have been wearing them far too much recently!



What's your favourite cosy outfit?

It's nice to mix it up and have a big of fun with workwear, why not!

I like to wear a hoody, some camo pants and a wooly hat for cosy times.

Thank you for the comment you left last night by the way, it means a lot to hear that.

I really like your tartan skirt, the colour is lovely and goes with that jumper very well.

wearing thermal leggings, comfy breton top and wooly cardigan is what I wear to be cosy xx

That outfit looks so cosy, the skirt reminds me of a cosy blanket (in a good way).

Ahh, I love the sequins! I know what you mean with your love of snazzy jumpers! They're the perfect way to keep cosy but still show some personality too xx
