Bold workwear...

I have written a lot about workwear over in this little corner of the internet and although I am lucky enough to not have a formal dress code, I think with a few fun accessories, nearly everyone can add a bit of pizazz to their wardrobe. This outfit is very similar to this one from early 2014 and despite looking a lot younger in those pictures, I'm glad to see that my style hasn't changed too much in the past couple of years! Gap is a firm favourite of mine for work appropriate dresses and this zingy red number was a sale bargain many months back. I really really love the colour and the shape is super fun too. Although I do have summer and winter wardrobes, I wear the majority of my clothes all year round, adding or removing layers as necessary. I can't wait to try this layered up with a polo neck and some boots, I love it too much to only be able to wear it for half of the year! It may not be subtle but hey, neither am I! ;)

Dress: Gap, shoes: French Sole c/o Spartoo
I am a massive fan of bright lipstick and MAC Lady Danger is the perfect match for this dress. I really love the colour and finish and it is ideal for those days where you haven't had much sleep and need to distract from your tired eyes! ;) The detailing on this dress is great and I love the neck line, it feels work appropriate without being claustrophobic...

Since I changed jobs, I have been walking to work every day and this has made me very aware of which shoes are actually suitable for walking in and comfortable over the course of a day. French Sole shoes may be pricy but these shoes have not rubbed my feet once, which is more than I can say for many of the cheaper shoes I own. They really do have some cute styles, aren't this pair amazing?!

I definitely need to invest in some French Soles, these are probably the ones I'd go for! Red always looks amazing on you. :)

I always think GAP seems like a solid choice for smart casual workwear.
