Grown Up Twee

Firstly, yes I am as cold as I look! This is why fashion bloggers should hibernate in winter...

I did make it out of my nice warm flat however, to take some photos of this work outfit. The top is from Sisley, courtesy of Zalando which is a brand I've seen in Europe a few times but not much in the UK. I am quite in love with their things at the moment, as I think they tread a good line between grown up and fun. For the longest time my style has been very much in the 'twee' category, but I feel like I am growing out of that peter pan style, but I'm not quite ready to give it up entirely just yet.

I love the cute print on the top, but in a dark colour and modest cut and paired with a pencil skirt it is a good example of how I want my style to evolve. A sort of grown up twee if there is such a thing!?

My only regret with the top is I should have sized down, as it's a little on the large side. It looks ok tucked into a skirt, but it would have a bit of a pregnancy vibe without being tucked in - and that's a little too grown up for me just yet!

I love the blouse, the print is gorgeous and works perfectly tucked into the skirt. You look very grown up but fun too, the perfect mix xxx

I think the red lipstick makes the outfit quite edgy

I think this silhouette is very nice on you and I love that top! I love peter pan collars, always have. I doubt I'll ever grow out of them. :)

You look lovely. I love the skirt. I've just started my new job and am now able to invest in a grown up wardrobe (something which I've not really achieved yet)

I love seeing your work outfits and if I had an office based job I'd like to dress like you, it's fun and playful but still smart! Which is a tricky thing to achieve but you do so effortlessly. x
