Grid lines...

You have glimpsed this dress before, here but I loved this outfit so much that I thought it deserved its own post! My new dress code is a bit smarter than the one at my previous job (I can only wear jeans on Fridays for example) so although I despaired at first, it did give me a good excuse to go shopping and I can't complain about that too much! ;) I'm a great believer in the fact that classic doesn't have to mean boring and this cute monochrome dress is living proof of that. Although I never normally choose to wear black and white, I think the print looks bold, rather than plain, especially with the red lipstick. It has been quite fun picking out 'proper' workwear again and I'm looking forward to sharing some of the outfits I have worn to work here on the blog.

Dress: Oasis, belt: Oasis, shoes: Marks & Spencer
You know how much I love red lipstick and I dug out my favourite (Max Factor Colour Elixir Lipstick in Ruby Tuesday) to add a splash of colour. I wanted to repaint my nails to match but I chose to get some extra sleep instead! ;)


It's no surprise that I am wearing my favourite pair of shoes here but they are actually the replacement pair which I (finally) managed to track down on eBay. I still need to break them in but I'm hoping that they will soon be as comfy as my other pair...


Where do you buy cute workwear from?

A very chic dress. I'm not expected to dress smartly at my workplace as such, but I have been trying to step my game up a bit. It tends to make me feel a bit more empowered somehow.

Love this dress - I really need to restock my working wardrobe as I've not had a proper workwear shopping trip in so long! x
