Belted Cardi and FCUK LBD, Mulberry Alexa | Printed Top, Skinny Jeans, Marc By Marc Jacobs Hillier Hobo Bag

Here's what I wore to work on Thursday:
SunniesBlack sunglasses with grey tinted lenses C/O Firmoo
Jacket: Jeanswest striped drape cardi
Necklace: sterling silver monogram necklace C/O MyNameNecklace.com.au
Bracelets: the usual
Dress: French Connection fitted little black dress
Belt: gifted Cotton On black waist belt
ShoesAsos Aggie leather western ankle boots in black
BagMulberry regular size Alexa bag in foggy grey from Reebonz sale

Close up of accessories and bag:

It was a little cool and rainny so I wore boots and a cardi to keep warm. I've seen a lot of people belting jackets and cardis lately so wanted to give it a try - this was the perfect dress to try it with I think. Really liked it, will definitely be wearing it again in future :)


The sunnies were last worn here, dress here, boots here and bag here. This is the first time I've worn the cardi on the blog.

Here's what I wore to work for Casual Friday today:
Necklace: gift from DH
Bracelets: the usual plus Indigo Rose Design waxed leather cream howlite beaded wrap bracelet
Top: gifted Jeanswest empire waist printed top (with Cotton On salmon pink singlet underneath)
JeansCotton On apricot skinnies
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs Logo Plaque Flats in Two Tone blush and black
BagMarc by Marc Jacobs Classic Q Hillier Hobo in blush pink with silver hardware

Close up of accessories and bag:

I was hunting through my wardrobe earlier in the week looking for a particular black top - that I decided not to wear anyway once I found it - and came across this top. I really love the colours and print on it, but I haven't worn it much, which is a shame. Last time I wore it was January 2011. It's crazy that I can let such a pretty top go unworn for over 2 years, and that I have enough clothes in my wardrobe to allow that to happen!!!


The jeans were last worn here, shoes here and bag here. This is the first wearing of the top on the blog.

  11. We have such similar bag collection it is scary haha. (Bal, RM and Mulberry) I think both of us love a good leather bag without logos, right? We should try to do a blogger meet up next time I am back to Aust with my family (but they live in Brisbane though, sigh). It'd be so much fun seeing our bags together hahaha :)
