that's why the lady is a tramp..

dogtooth skirt: river island
dog cardigan: laura ashley

shoes, sunglasses, vest, necklace: primark


Sometimes I really struggle with putting together a work-suitable outfit which isn't too casual, but is still "me". Because my usual working environment is fairly casual, there aren't really any dress restrictions, which I love because it gives me a chance to be a bit more experimental than I'm sure I'd get away with at most places.

However, now and then I have to go to a particularly shitty meeting, made more so by the fact that I had to leave for this one before 6.30am. So I threw together this pencil skirt, which I'm still not massively confident about, with an old favourite Laura Ashley cardigan, and what are fast becoming one of my favourite pairs of shoes ever - which is a bit shocking given the number of shoes I own.

What do you think - work appropriate? Or still too casual? I'll never be a suits person.    


  1. I'd call that work appropriate! x

  2. I think you look perfect,smart but still with your usual quirky style. I love your shoes too can't believe they're Primark xxxx

  3. I think it ticks the box for a meeting and still looks like you.

  4. I think it's a perfectly acceptable work outfit, and it's nice that you still get to keep it 'you' with the dog cardi. I hate suits also, I seriously don't like right in them!

  5. This is a really nice outfit and I got your letter, I'll send a reply as soon as I have stamps lovely lady! xxx

  6. Totally work appropriate! It looks fab, I hate suits too I have a couple of suit jackets but don't wear them like I should ;0)
    I so love your dog cardie too.

  7. Love the skirt! and the necklace too

  8. I love the skirt, so slinky and chic. Is it a recent buy? I think I could get away with this for work.Rx
