Red Alexander McQueen scarf, Balenciaga Velo, Tank and Pencil Skirt

Here's what I wore to work today:
JacketBarkins beige trench coat (similar here)
Scarf: Alexander McQueen taupe and red skull-print modal and cashmere-blend scarf (New Purchase)
Top: Jeanswest Audrey tonal print tank (New Purchase, similar here)
SkirtAsos tailored tab front pencil skirt in grey
Belt: Asos skinny boyfriend belt (tied in a double loop knot using this tutorial by Kileen from Cute and Little)
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs Logo Plaque flats in Camel
BagBalenciaga Coquelicot 2011 RH Velo from Reebonz


Close up of accessories:
Necklace: gifted frangipani necklace, made by a talented friend
Bracelets: the usual plus Mimco punklove chain wrist bracelet in grey (similar here) and Hermes Kelly Double tour bracelet in rubis (similar here)


I bought this Alexander McQueen scarf in the US Net-a-porter sale last week, although it's now sold out. The international sale just started yesterday on the UK site, so go check it out :) Would love to know if you buy anything!

My top sale pick is this coral floral skull scarf, I narrowed it down to the coral or the red skull scarf in the US sale but the coral one sold out there and made my choice easier!

Not too impressed with how this outfit turned out today. I like the top belted, but maybe needed a wider belt when worn with this pencil skirt. If I wore the pencil skirt and top together again I'd either use a different belt or tuck the top in. What do you think?


The trench coat was last worn here with the shoes, and the skirt was last worn here with the bag. This is the first time I've worn the scarf and top.

  1. I think it looks fine with the skinnier belt! although both skinny and wide would work, in my opinion. love the trench coat <3

    1. Thanks! I was a big tucked in fan until I tried a top with a belt and loved it, need to remember and mix the two up so I don't do too much of each! :)
