A Week In Work Outfits

After over 4 years of working in a uniform, when I started my current job back in November I was faced for the first time by the prospect of daily outfit decisions, which was pretty exciting for me.

Well 6 months down the line, I’ve definitely got into the swing of office apparel, and because we keep it fairly casual at work, I’ve really loved putting together outfits that are smart-casual and cute, and really reflect my personal style, so this week I thought I’d share my looks from every day this week!

Monday

This skirt is an all-time favourite of mine. Its a few years old now, originally from Missguided, but I just adore the little cloud print. I teamed it with this multi-layer Daisy Street bodysuit and my favourite light cardigan, along with some lace up heels.

Tuesday 

Your girl took the plunge and wore her Mickey shirt to work!! This blouse from H&M got me so excited but I was a little nervous to wear it in the office, but I’m so happy that I did because I love it! With the shirt being the main event, I just paired it with dark blue jeans and the comfiest plain black flats (psst! £4 from Primark!)

Wednesday


I really love these trousers – would you believe their from F&F at Tesco? They’re so comfy and the print isn’t too in your face, plus you NEVER have to iron them and they always look perfect! I’m also loving this blouse which I bought recently from the H&M sale, its really light which makes it perfect for the upcoming summer weather and the colour means it goes with everything.

Thursday



This outfit made me so happy! I love that my office dress code allows smart shorts – not that most people even realise that my Black Milk galaxy shorties are actually shorts! I also wear my ‘unicorns are real’ t-shirt to work more often than I care to admit, but when you’re also wearing a blazer it still counts as smart, right? The blazer is AX Paris!

Friday


 Can you tell I was posing in the rain on Friday? I got fed up of grey skies so figured my car would make a brighter backdrop! I’m not usually one for frilly or fancy sleeves, but I really love this blouse from Blue Vanilla, even if I do look a little bit like an Abba reject.. I also love any excuse to wear my chelsea boots to gain a bit of extra height!

So that’s a week in the life of my wardrobe! Depending on my mood I can go a lot more casual than I have done this week, and if I do work weekends then that’s always super casual!

Toontown Lookbook

Ears by me (LottieBounds on Etsy), t-shirt from The Happiest Fitness Co, skirt from Poprageous

Its no secret how much I love planning my outfits for Disney trips. If I told you exactly how much time and thought goes into it, some of you would probably think it a little bit sad, but honestly it makes me so happy.

On my last Disney trip, I was particularly excited to put together amazing outfits because I knew that Sarah and I would take every outfit photo opportunity that came our way, and the most fun we had was definitely in Toontown. We sat and waited for half an hour for it to open so that we could be some of the first people in and get nice empty photos.

I just love Toontown; everything is so cute and it actually feels like you’ve stepped into a cartoon, especially with a clear California blue sky backdrop. It was my first time properly exploring every nook and cranny of TT, and I was pretty excited to discover a gym and a post office – two places I seem to spend the majority of my real life at – as well as hanging out on my new favourite mode of transportation, the Jolly Trolley.

I honestly loved this outfit so much. It was such a beautiful day out, and an all-white outfit actually made me look like I had a little bit of a tan (which I definitely didn’t). By some miracle, I also managed to not spill anything down myself all day – after I refused to eat until after the photos were taken!

The t-shirt is my favourite product from the Oh Boy collection from THFC; I’m not always one for a unisex fit, but I love the fit of this shirt and it meant I stayed pretty cool during the day. Plus it went so perfectly with my Mouse Splatter skirt, and I’ll admit that the ears that complete my look were originally made to sell on my Etsy, but I loved them so much I decided to keep them!

What’s your favourite place to take photos?

I Love Spinning

You may have noticed that I’m drawing on park attractions and areas as inspiration for my outfits for this trip, and today its a real Disney classic: teacups. I’m actually not the biggest Alice in Wonderland fan myself, but I adore the pastel shades and crazy patterns of the Fantasyland attraction, which inspired the I Love Spinning tank from The Happiest Fitness Co, matched up with the adorable teacup skirt that I bought from Wishes and Wands on Etsy ages ago but haven’t actually worn yet!

To complete the look, I made myself a pair of Alice in Wonderland ears, which are also available from my Etsy shop!

Who didn’t fall in love with Zootropolis last year?! If Judy Hopps hasn’t become a role model to thousands of adults, let alone kids, all over the world, then I’d be really surprised.

That being said, of course I had to put together a Zootropolis themed outfit, especially when I received the cutest Judy inspired ears from Le Ears. I’ve been toying with the idea of a few Zootropolis inspired designs for The Happiest Fitness Co for a while, so I designed the ZPD Training Academy t-shirt (which is available for pre-order now here!) and I’m pairing it with this navy lace skirt from Forever 21. Nancy from Le Ears also sent me this cute little Judy badge to match my ears!

Bibbidi-Bobbidi-Tulle

I leave for Walt Disney World in 10 weeks. 10 WEEKS!!

Its become part of my trip countdown tradition to share the outfits I have planned, but this year I decided to try something a little different in the set up of these posts because a) it saves me having to go outside and take countless outfit photos and b) I’m hoping to get lots of photos of these outfits on the trip, and they’ll look much better in situ in the parks than they would in my back garden.

So instead, I’m gonna rock the flatlays!

Bibbidi-Bobbidi Tulle Disney Outfit

Day one of our trip is going to be super magical. We’ll be twirling down Main Street first thing on our way to breakfast reservations at Cinderella’s Royal Table, so I’ll be leaving the glass slippers at home and opting for Converses instead, but I still want to be a princess nonetheless. Sarah’s planning a Rapunzel-bound which also involves a tulle skirt, so it was a perfect excuse for me to dig out mine again!

The t-shirt is from Redbubble (as you’re probably aware most of mine are!), and I made the ears to match – any excuse for new ears! I also always look forward to being able to wear my Alex and Ani bracelets again when I go on Disney trips – I think they’re so beautiful but I don’t like wearing them when I’m not in the parks.

I can just imagine the day being full of princess meeting, twirling and happiness, and I’m so excited!!

Seawitch OOTD

I’ve been waiting to post this outfit for AGESSS, and I finally decided that Halloween was the perfect time to share this villainous look.

I’ve never really been one for Disney villains, but about 18 months ago the idea of this Ursula-inspired skirt came to me and I took to my sewing machine. About two days later, I had one finished skirt (or semi-finished, as I’ve never actually hemmed it!) and I’m so proud of it! If I was going to DLP for Halloween (which I’m pretty gutted I’m not to be honest), I’d definitely be packing this!

As I think the skirt is the centrepiece of this outfit, I just paired it with a simple black crop top and chunky black Chelsea boots, and the lipstick is Winky Lux Stella Marina. This is also the first time I’ve been able to use my remote shutter control, meaning I’m finally in focus for a change, yay!

Who is your favourite Disney villain?

Disney Style: Paint the Night

Paint the Night

Pinwheel BAE shirt from Redbubble, Paint the Night button from MyParkFlair, Pom Pom ears from Disney Darling, Flo’s V8 pencil skirt from Redbubble

So obviously I am crazy excited that my 2017 plans are bringing me back to my true love, Disneyland, and we all know how much I love planning outfits!

Besides the parade itself, I took my inspiration for this outfit from two things: the Flo’s V8 skirt, which is actually a design from my Redbubble portfolio that I’ve sorta fallen in love with, and one of my favourite Disneyland Instagrammers and CM Francis Dominic (@frncissdominc on Twitter and Instagram) who is the BAE of the Pinwheel Baes! I just think Spellerific nailed it with the shirt design!

And when it comes to accessorizing Disney outfit, buttons and Mickey ears are absolutely foolproof. Let’s just talk about this beauty of a button from MyParkFlair; I mean, it actually sparkles and I bet it would look so magical with all the parade lights flashing around you. Pom pom ears are also always perfection in my eyes, and the back of this pair is black and sparkly like the night sky, ahh!

Who votes I make this outfit happen for real when I visit next year?
