dress - warehouse, watch - casio, shoes - schuh

I am really bad at buying work clothes. Even though I quite enjoy getting dressed up for work each day, it's not quite as exciting to shop for a suit as for weekend clothes. A couple of weeks ago through I got to the point where I realised a large percentage of my workwear was purchased back when I was an intern, approximately five years ago! It was definitely time for some new threads!

My best tip for workwear is definitely warehouse. I have three of their jersey dresses like this one now, which are so comfy and easy to wear when I choose five minutes extra in bed instead of actually planning what I want to wear to work. Which is most days lets be honest.

I love a simple dress for workwear-I get around the '5 more minutes' issue by packing work clothes the night before and just falling into my cycling gear before leaving the house. I'm dreading the day I forget something crucial like tights or pack the wrong coloured bra or something....

This looks great on you, I've got waist envy!

If this is to go by your work wardrobe is pretty nice. I just think of white blouses and tight skirts. Think I need to get out more.

Work outfits are so hard, especially if you're feeling lazy that day. I love the dress, you're totally rocking it!

Oh, I never think of looking in Warehouse. This dress is lovely on you and perfect for work, though.

I love this dress. Looks like you have work wear pretty much sorted. I go to Warehouse for my work wear too - they do the cutest shirts, which I can pair with skinny jeans.

Glad I read this! Now that I work from home my work wear has slowly disappeared, leaving me with nothing for meetings - something like this would be perfect! Looks fab on you x

jazzabelle said...

oh wow, the dress is such a beautiful shape on you! it probably sounds odd for me to say. but i am so jealous of your waist to hip ratio! you babe. xxx

I like the new dress - and I can see it getting lots of wearing! I have reached a similar point in time but in shoes - I just saw 2 of my favourite pairs of boots fall apart and I realised I haven't actually been shopping boots since 5 years ago! time to hit clarks I think!

Mary H said...

I would always choose 5 extra minutes in bed too haha. The shape of that dress is really nice...seems like it would be flattering to all types. I just discovered that they ship to the US so I'm gonna have a look. :)

This dress looks absolutely amazing on you! Definitely a good one for accentuating the curves, your waist looks tiny! But also, that clever draping I can tell would be very forgiving! I wish I had a job where I needed to buy nice things like this, trust me its nicer to get to choose what you wear rather than wearing a horrible uniform all week...

this is stunning:)

That dress! Those shoes! You look amazing, and I agree, jersey dresses (and skater style dresses for me) are so easy to wear to work. :-) x

opportunityknits said...

The dress is lovely, didn't realise it's jersey, oh my goodness, it must be so comfortable to wear, and yet it looks work appropriate. Your shoes are fab too!

Love the dress, it looks really comfy for work aswell. I have had to have a bit of a workwear overhaul recently. I really love People Tree for dresses.

Maria Fallon said...

Love this dress on you, super flattering too :) This is exactly the kind of thing that I wish my wardrobe was full of!
