For the next few days I am away on a course with work. I quite like packing to go away as I enjoy putting together a mini capsule collection of my clothes to take with me (ok, so I have weird hobbies!) I always pack light and try to take as little as possible, so packing things that all go together is a must. This week I've gone for a bit of a nautical theme - here's what I'll be wearing.

P1040574 P1040571
Jacket - Warehouse, Skirt - Wallis, Blue jumper - Dorothy Perkins, Shoes - Carvela, Necklace and Earrings - Vintage 80s, Watch - Marc by Marc Jacobs

P1040576 P1040592
 Jumper, Jewellary, Shoes and Watch - As Before, Trousers - Topshop, Dress - Debenhams, Scarf - Vintage, Cardigan - New Look

I need to look smart and work appropriate, but I also wanted clothes I could sit comfortably around the hotel in the evening in. Different bold accessories are a good way of making it less obvious you're wearing the same thing as yesterday(!) so I've taken my fantastic silver 80s necklace and earrings which make me feel like a Mayor, and a gorgeous sea print vintage scarf.

See you when I get back!

How harsh of them to whisk you away right before Christmas! Though your outfits are gorgeous, I hope I can find great clothes when I get a job too. :)

You look so grown-up! I love all the outfits but I think the jacket-skirt ensemble is my fave. You look like a high-powered executive in it! :)

Enjoy your trip!!!
