Grey Tee, Pencil Skirt, Marco Tagliaferri Birk Bag | French Connection Print Dress, Pistol Boots, Vintage LV Speedy Bag

Here's what I wore to work on Wednesday:
Scarfblack and blue Alexander McQueen paisley print scarf
Bracelets: the usual
TeeCotton On 'Asher' short sleeve tee in white and grey marl deck stripe
SkirtJeanswest zip detail ponte pencil skirt
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs studded mouse flats in grey
Bag: Marco Tagliaferri first generation birk bag in navy from HGBags Online


Despite almost losing my voice I still had to give a little presentation at work on Wednesday, so dragged myself out of bed to go in. I wanted to be comfortable more than anything, so wore a nice tee under my pencil skirt and of course a big scarf to keep me warm.


Last worn: Paisley scarf, stripe tee, pencil skirt, studded mouse flats, Marco Tagliaferri bag.

Here's what I wore to work today:
Scarf: Cotton On white pashmina
Bracelets: the usual plus gifted Ferragamo double wrap bracelet
DressFrench Connection 'Woodblock wonder' panache dress in white/geranium rose
Belt: C/O Poppywinkle brown weave belt (came with Janet top)
ShoesAcne pistol boots in "skin"
BagVintage Louis Vuitton speedy 25 in monogram canvas


Another big scarf! It was a little too warm for this scarf today, although it was nice in the air conditioning at work and I wanted to keep my neck bundled up. There is probably zero benefit to my health but something in my brain just wants to wear scarves when I'm unwell. Maybe it's to lessen the blow of having to get out from under the doona each morning, haha!

I tried on a few printed scarves with this dress but wasn't quite sure that they looked okay, so went for the safe option with this big white pashmina instead. Would you wear a printed scarf with this dress? What do you think?


Last worn: orange dressbeltpistol bootsspeedy bag.
First time the scarf has been worn on the blog, but I've had it years.

  3. Simple but nice, love the shoes you chose for the second outfit! I think it adds something quirky and unique to it which would have been missing without the shoes! Good job :)

  8. Thanks for stopping by my blog! So glad to have found yours -- I definitely think you could wear a patterned scarf with that dress. Plus, I love the look of a tailored pencil skirt and a simple t, so I'm loving both of these!

  10. Layering scarfs over dresses is a great way to have a little extra warmth, especially in a cold office and gives a nice dimension to the look!

  26. I love your little doggie! He/she is so good at posing! You know what's "scary" is that I feel we have almost the same types of bags haha. I once owned a Marco bag in "mud" but was so annoyed with it's slouchiness and the difficult clasp I sold it. I am glad you keep yours though becuase it makes me sort of miss my hehehe :)
