Workwear: Silk Blouse, Pencil Skirt

Well aren’t I looking all grown up for once?! Occasionally I like to dress up like an adult and leave the TV presenter look behind and there’s no better way to channel ‘grown-up workwear’ than with a silk shirt. This one is a gorgeous pick from Reiss (surely the go-to high street shop for chic workwear) which features some lovely textured panels down the side. I can’t get enough of the colour, after all, I couldn’t possibly dress in black and white now could I?! The skirt was a surprising impulsive splurge in the River Island sale. I’ve never worn a pencil skirt before, I just couldn’t bring myself to switch out of those thigh-skimming minis but the split and panelling in this sassy little leopard print number called! I’m also very chuffed that I dug out this Next throw/scarf. Maxi scarves are definitely the way this winter! brr!

    All grown up! Though I think I miss all the mad colour and crazy tv presenter patterns.

    You look so lovely ! 🙂 The colours are so amazing! People usually wear dark and gloomy colours during this season & you always are so colorful, it’s genius!

    This is fantastic (as always!) Work would be far more fun if I could wear something like this! I am in love with that coat, and the fact it is now in the Asos sale is very tempting! Xx
