Preppy inspired...

Smart casual is a tricky one to pull off, it is very easy to look crumpled rather than chic but this tried and tested combination is my favourite on days when I want to look pulled together, but still be comfortable. There's nothing worse than feeling trussed up all day when you're at work! It's the lovechild of this outfit and this one and is such a cliché 'I work in marketing' outfit- I blame the buttoned collar and the hipster glasses ;) I can't believe how different I look with longer hair either, those pictures were only taken a few months ago but I look (and feel) like a completely different person. It's amazing what a sassy haircut and a slick of jazzy lipstick (MAC Impassioned FYI) will do for your self esteem and your wardrobe!

When Joshua James Jewellery (try saying that in a hurry!) got in contact to see if I wanted to review something from their website, I was thrilled. I immediately headed to the watches section as I lost my blue Guess one in the move (sob) and ordered this Radley one but when it arrived it was far too small for my wrists so I swapped it for this one (which I actually prefer now it has arrived). I love the rose gold dial and the white leather is surprisingly chic (not a sentence I ever thought I would type!) The teeny Radley dogs on the inside of the strap have also elicited many coos of admiration too, they are just so darned cute!

I really love these dalmatian print shoes and they were perfect for adding a bit of excitement to a fairly plain outfit. I seem to be drawn to plainer outfits than I used to be, is this a sign that I am growing up?!

How do you shake up your style?
P.S. Joshua James Jewellery sent me this watch to review but if I didn't love it, I wouldn't feature it!

I would love to wear a preppy look again once my semester begins next month!

You look so cute! You're right, short hair makes you look completely different! I love a haircut that can completely change your style, I need to mix mine up!

Haha I know what you mean about the marketing spiel. Except I pretty much wear jeans and nikes to work everyday....and my Ray ban glasses. Anyway, I love the jacket, it's such a great colour!
