Work Wear #6

Hey wonderful people!

Back with another work wear themed post today.

I like to mix it up at work and whilst some days I'll go for the really girly outfits (such as pretty printed dresses), other days I'll feel like dressing a little more edgier! 

Here's a few of my more girly work looks from recent weeks:

Navy Polka Dot Smock Dress

Polka Dot Smock Dress* - £5 Hidden Fashion / White Shirt - Boohoo / Pink Bag - £19.99 Asos / Pink Heels - £19.99 Newlook / Rope Belt - £32 now reduced to £16 American Apparel 

This vintage style little beauty was sent to me by the lovely people at Hidden Fashion. It costs just £5 to buy - yes FIVE POUNDS! Not even primark do things that cheap anymore! And honestly, you wouldn't know from the quality that it was so inexpensive. Bargain dress of the year? I think so!  You can get lots of other pretty & purse friendly dresses on their website (link here). 

Miss Selfridge Black & Floral Playsuit

Pussybow Printed Playsuit - £45 Miss Selfridge (now reduced to £20!?) / Brown bag - £7 Primark / Black Heels - £19.99 H&M 

Going super girly (and quite classy I think) with this Miss Selfridge Playsuit - I'm actually pretty pissed off right now because I just went to get the link and have found out it's now reduced from £45 to £20 (I ONLY BOUGHT IT A FEW WEEKS AGO!) Haha never mind, good for you guys should you want to buy it :) - If you do tweet me @gabbytweets_ and feel free to brag!

Pink Skater Dress & Floral Jacket

Pink Skater Dress - £30 Topshop / Floral Jacket - £24.99 Newlook / Brown Satchel - Next / Bead Necklace - £5 Primark / Black Heels - £19.99 H&M

You may notice this is the jacket featured in a 2 piece set from a previous work wear post. Well I like to make sure I get plenty of wear out of my clothes so I styled it with this pretty pink skater dress from Topshop for a very Barbie esque work look! (Did anyone else have like 1 Ken and 30 Barbies when they were younger? The girl to guy ratio was just not good for playing relationships - Ken was a sleaze!)

Moving on, here's a few of the less cutesy looks from recent weeks:

Leather Skirt & Aztec Jacket

Black Faux Leather Pencil Skirt - £35 Miss Selfridge / White Top - £9 Boohoo / Aztec Jacket - Missguided / Brown Satchel - Accessorize 

I'd been looking for a leather skirt for this winter (since last years is a bit of a squeeze to get into now oops!) when I came across this awesome one from Miss Selfridge. I just love its asymmetrical style and think it looks great with the aztec jacket for a fun but professional work outfit.

Royal Blue Mesh Dress

Blue Strappy Maxi Dress- £17.99 Cameo Rose @ Newlook / Black Bow Bag - £7 Primark /Black Stappy Heels - £19.99 Newlook / Bad Fake Tan Job - Priceless

As you can probably tell I like to wear lots of colour to work! It's definitely a way to brighten up the day :) Cobolt blue is definitely back this winter after it was featured loads on the London fashion week catwalks - so I was happy when I snapped this bargain blue dress from New Look. 

And that's all for today, what about you guys - how do you define your work style? And what do you think is the best style for work? I'd love to know your opinions! 

See you soon,

Gabby xoxo
