Working Wardrobe Dreams – The Skirt

The Skirt


Ok, so I had every intention on making this month’s WWD specific to pencil skirts, but as you can see, upon searching for skirts to feature, I fell in love with pleats and A-lines instead!

First up, and adding a bit of colour to the selection is this stripy number from New Look, just because I think so many people seem to think colour doesn’t scream ‘professional’, and I think that’s a bunch of rubbish!

Then we’ve got three different pleated beauties; the single pleat, wide pleats and narrow pleats, all of which I think can be really flattering, and I love the ‘classic’ style of all of them, especially with the length! The grey midi is from Alexa Chung’s new collection at M&S! Last up, a simple yet eye-catching a-line from H&M!

Do you prefer a pencil skirt, or are you smitten with my selection?

Friday Favourite Five – Cutie Handbags

I don’t think its much of a secret that I’m a bag addict..

Today I’m dipping into my collection to share a few of my slightly less practical but more adorable favourites!

Skinnydip Milk Carton

This one is so cute! Yes, its not always the most practical, but its shape actually means it can hold more than you might think! Also the top is magnetic, which is great.

Asos Party Ring shoulder bag

This is my go-to night out bag; big enough for my makeup, phone, keys and a small purse, and um, its a party ring!

Daisy Street Shell clutch

Another night out favorite of mine because its so sparkly! It also has a little wrist strap and is pretty roomy.

New Look Doughnut clutch

A doughnut the size of my face? Yes please!

Watermelon = summer to me, and I can’t wait to use this bagboy (no, not a typo) more when then sun comes out!

What do you think then, huh?

Clutch Loving

Any bag addicts in the house? *raises hand slowly*

I’ve always been a bag girl, going back as far as I can remember, and I’ve made a real effort in the last few years to clear out a lot of the collection I’ve hoarded since I was 11/12. With that in mind, I felt it only fair that, as an ‘adult’ now, I’m allowed to build up a slightly more grown-up collection of bags, and top of the list for ‘adult’ bags is the clutch.

While not practical for every occasion, a clutch is the perfect accessory for a night out, weekend stroll, lunch date; those times you just need somewhere to keep your phone and keys. The right clutch can make a good outfit great, and I’ve been building up a sweet little collection of them that are a little more ‘out there’..










Pretty dreamy collection, right?
