Rouge red...

Certain outfits are easily remixed and re-worn, for example, this little white dress from Gap looks equally nice with a pair of sandals or sparkly shoes as it does with this coral pair. Others though, require less effort as I tend to wear them one way. This top was a sale bargain back at the beginning of the year and I really love it. The swing-y tunic shape is super flattering and comfy enough to wear all day at work too. As I mentioned, I'm not able to wear jeans in my new job so opted for some skinny fit trousers and my leopard print flats to make this outfit more work appropriate. I seem to have a thing for red and leopard print together but who can resist when it is so fun?! I think one of the best things about wearing bright colours is that you immediately look like you have made more effort, even if you are basically wearing pyjamas- always good when you have a busy week ahead! ;) Red is definitely my favourite colour and although this was a super comfy outfit, I felt really chic and confident in it and I will definitely be wearing it again!

Top: Warehouse, trousers: ASOS, shoes: French Sole c/o Spartoo 
I don't tend to straighten my hair too often (I am paranoid about frazzling it like I did when I was 15!) but I always love how it looks when I do. I am thinking about going slightly shorter again with my hair but I'm not sure how cropped to go. The problem I have is that I am super lazy with my hair but it is so thick that it is getting a bit unruly now! As always, I am wearing my favourite red lipstick. I did recently buy Nars Dragon Girl which is divine so this Max Factor one does have some competition! 


Black trousers are a bit of a minefield for me, I find that if you get them wrong, I end up looking really frumpy and I knew that I needed some that were fitted rather than tailored to go with tops like this. This high waisted pair from ASOS remind me of the ones that the 'cool girls' used to wear at school (I blame the piping down the legs!), does anyone else see it?! Despite having a flashback to being desperately uncool, I really like these. They are super comfy and just what I wanted for work; all the comfort of jeans, whilst being smart enough for the office. 


Which colours give you confidence?
