Summer, now you're talking! I'm so excited to see that the sun has come out to play at last, and though I'm only just beginning to enjoy it (bed bound by a bug all weekend: not fun), I've definitely decided that my wardrobe is empty of work wear suited to this climate as I've become more reliant on trousers and tights under skirts and dresses due to the never ending rain.
Whereas I don't really need an excuse to shop, I do find it hard to differentiate my work wardrobe from my 'personal' (and I also resent spending a lot of money on what is essentially a uniform) so faced with a whole lot of black this morning, I decided the next few bright and summery items I purchase must absolutely be for work, not play.
Starting with this poppy red shift from Topshop Boutique. Shifts are well known for flattering most body shapes and I loved the sleek silhouette this one gave when I tried it on at lunch time today. The pockets add to the super cute 50's feel and aside from the screaming loud colour, I really liked how light and floaty the silk was, perfect for this heat though I'm certain it'd crease in a blink as soon as I sat down in it!
Also spotted these lovely raffia wedges as I was strolling around the shop and think they'd be perfect for work, I tend to avoid heels simply for the fact that 10 hours of running around an office on my tippy toes each day just feels silly (and they seriously slow me down) but the wedge meant they were so comfortable, I walked away feeling seriously swayed by them and the more than reasonable £65 price tag.
Finally, I have a few blazers in my wardrobe and they often complete an outfit for me, I'm not sure why but they've really become a staple and I've got my eye on this collarless cream one, also from Topshop, which has a lovely cropped back giving it a little more girly edge ~ The perfect item, just in case the weather decides to switch on us again!xo
