A Back to Work Wishlist

Hello!

This week I thought I might do something a bit different. I've not really done this before so I hope it works!

I'm back to work after nearly a year off (maternity leave) and I have no clue what I'm going to wear.  When I was last in work, or course I was wearing maternity clothes, and before that I was a size 12 (I am SO not a size 12 anymore!) so none of my clothes are really suitable.

I also have no idea about current fashion trends really, I don't buy fashion magazines any more, and although I read a few fashion blogs, I think a lot of the looks are a bit young for me! So what I did was this. I used the Polyvore app on my phone to browse through a whole heap of different clothes, and create some looks that would be suitable for work.

Rather than trying to find the exact items, I more often find a photo of an item that I like (such as a black skirt) which can be found anywhere. For example, in this first look, that skirt is more than a grand!! As if I would ever spend that much  money on a skirt, even if I was a billionaire!!

So, hopefully this is what I will be wearing come June when I am back at work!

Look 1: I love the simplicity of a black skirt and white shirt, but not really sure if I can pull it off. I have all these items (well, look-a-like items!) already, so will have to try it out before I return!

Look 2: I bought some navy trousers last week, and I have a very similar top (but mine has polka dots on it! win!!) - I am in LOVE with that bag, but it is probably waaaaay out of my price range!!

Look 3: This would be great for a more casual look - and that bag is just too adorable! And only £5 apparently! I love floral prints right now!

  3. I love the boots in look 1, and the scarf and bag in look 3. Although I guess I'd have to combine them with some clothes too as my work's dress code is smart/casual not naked-with-accessories. xxx

    1. Indeed, clothes are unfortunately a requirement of most work places. Sorry.

  4. I really love all the pretty florals in look 3. If I were to use these as inspiration, I'd probably do a mix of 1 and 3. Love it!

  5. Oooh, I love that first skirt zoo much! I am the total opposite to you in regards to the fact that if I saw that skirt in a shop I would probably go into debt to own it haha. I have some serious issues when it comes to shopping :P

    That being said, the last look is my favourite - FLORALS! Plus, it looks so comfortable! xx

  6. The boots and skirt from outfit #1. are my faves. I'm looking for some workwear inspiration too, but knowing me, I'll probably end up doing what I always do and just buy everything from Zara and H&M *classy bird*. Great ideas lady :-) n x
