Five Pretty Things: Autumn/Winter Workwear

I have a bit of an office job going on at the moment. It makes me sad as it keeps me away from Rosalilium but it also pays more of the bills. So off to the office I trundle along with an uninspiring ‘uniform’. I work in the kind of office where creativity in the clothing department is frowned upon. We are limited to the colours we are permitted to wear, and no patterns are allowed.

Now, I have always been pretty lucky with my previous workplace’s – I could always wear whatever I chose as long as I looked nice. But now that I am feeling restricted I am getting lazy and boring with my daily outfits. This does not make for a happy Elizabeth.

So I decided to find a bit of sartorial inspiration from the fashion world to remind myself that smart office-wear needn’t be frumpy and boring. Chic and sophisticated is the look we are aspiring to.

 What do you wear to the office?

  1. I really like the dress and skirt you picked.

    Today I am wearing navy palazzo pants and a breton top with red kitten heels. Yesterday I wore a purple shift dress over a black long sleeved top, tomorrow I think I’ll wear these trousers again with a chiffon blouse. I’m quite liking dressing like a grown up but it feels a bit weird!

    1. ooooh, I like the sound of your outfits. I really need to find some trousers that fit me. I’m starting to miss wearing trousers.

  2. That skirt is beautiful.

    I’ve not worked in a work wear environment for ages but i seem to be interviewing for them now and it terrifies me – what will I wear?
