When I won the lovely Law's Tesco voucher competition a while ago, I was really chuffed. I love Tesco clothes and I couldn't wait to pick out some new bits and pieces for my wardrobe. I usually head straight for the dresses but I have been trying to incorporate more separates into my wardrobe so instead I went for this lovely boxy top and patterned skirt. Paired with my bright blue blazer and my oversized glasses, I was told that I looked like a bit of a marketing cliché , can you tell that I work in a creative industry?! ;) I wore this outfit to chair a meeting and it was perfect, I felt confident, but still pulled together, a difficult combination to get right! Until I can steal Harriet's wardrobe, this will have to be my go to when I need a little confidence boost...

I was so pleased when I unwrapped this top, I wear a lot of white tops and am always pleased to add another one to my collection. I love the sleeves on this one and the fact that it is slightly textured is just the icing on the cake. It is a boxier shape than I would normally wear but I think this works better with a bodycon skirt or skinny trousers. I don't play with the proportions of my clothes very often but I think I need to based on how much I love this top!
Here you can see the texture of the top a bit better and also the gorgeous pattern on this skirt. I sized up as I didn't want it to be too skin-tight but actually the fit is pretty generous, so definitely go for your usual size or even one down. This was sitting a lot lower on my hips than I would like but at least it made it a slightly more work-appropriate length! Sometimes I find patterned skirts quite difficult to wear but I think with a shorter length, they are quite a fun way to add a bit of interest to an outfit, what do you think?
How would you style a patterned skirt?
