I know I wrote a similar post in the past, but I've really realised that theres a whole other fashion world when it comes to work. No more boring pant suits and baggy trousers: work wear can be cool.

And these were my two favourite outfits that I wore. The first one is H&M shirt and trousers, and Barrats shoes (£5!!!)

The second one is H&M shirt, and a £4 skirt bought from a local shop, and these shoes.

I don't know if you can see my hair properly in the pictures, but I'd just gotten it done. I got a birthday voucher from my hairdressers and I was long overdue a hair cut. I usually get my hair done straight, but I decided to go for curls this time. I have really curly hair, but it was a nice change to have it done properly.

You hair looks lovely. I'd love to have curls like that all the time.

I still get frustrated whenever I go into meetings with my professors or go into the art gallery.... I can never figure out what to wear to make it professional and youthful. But lately there's been so much choice and variety... I am both frustrated and existed to experience the professional side.

Wonderful post!!!

Perfect selection, and great collages!


Cheryl said...

Love your 2 outfits and the hair. Lucky buy on the shoes! :)

The collages are great too. With so many choices out there, all you have to do is mix and match and off you go feeling nice and fabulous in the workplace. Have a beautiful Sunday!

Beth said...

Love these collages, especially the bottom one!

I am doing ABRSM lol I didnt know there was any other types!

Your hair is gorgeous as well.
I have got really curly hair too and I normally get it straightened when I get it cut but this might have inspired me to get them to curl it next time I am due a trim!

Love your blog

Love the looks! Sometimes I wish I had to dress up for work. But I work in a really casual environment.

You hair looks amazing! I love the curls!

Work wear definitely has evolved from what it once was, hasn't it! I love that we have more options now. I also love how people's perceptions of professional wear have become less dated. Thats gotta be good for us.

I always find proper business attire challenging, so I really appreciate this post.
I love the outfits you are wearing in both photos. Great style. And I love your hair too. :)

Great work looks!!!!

It is hard to not let yourself fall into a corporate rut of grey and pinstriped everything. I like the outfit pairing you showcased. I think it's important to still dress in a way that makes you feel confident and stylish at work so that you exude that mindset.

i love your favourite outfits! I hate that we don´t have H&M in Mexico :(


S.Elisabeth said...

Your hair looks SO PRETTY!!!
And work wear looks so fun. Too bad my uniform boils down to a suit, a t-shirt, cotton shorts, and flip-flops. =( Oh and a whistle.

Kristin said...

Both looks are fabulous. I'm particularly digging that first top. And your hair does totally rock!

ana said...

You look fab in both outfits... for a confortable day the flats... for a meeting or so the skirt... perfect sherin :)

Maria Confer said...

Very lovely work outfits you pulled together! Love the polyvore picks.

OceanDreams said...

Work wear can be cool! Loving the outfits you are wearing and I have a few H&M work tops, they are seriously my favorite work shirts.

Tasha said...

I love the items you chose for work wear! Very good choices! Also, the two pics of you look fanastic! You look very pretty! I wish I could wear skinny pants like that! lol
