Leather Jacket, Aztec Print Dress, Boots, Sapphire City | Casual Hoodie, Skinnies, Studded Flats, Balenciaga Velo

Here's what I wore to work and out to a team celebration on Thursday:



NecklaceHouse of Harlow 5 station necklace in black and silver
Dress: Jeanswest Aztec print dress
Belt: Black braided belt, came with the dress
ShoesAsos Aggie leather western ankle boots in black
Bracelets: the usual plus Indigo Rose Design black leather Swarovski beaded wrap bracelet
BagBalenciaga RH city in 2008 sapphire


We had a lunch to celebrate our project success and catch up to some old colleagues who had left earlier in the project so I wore my favourite dress. Was such a lovely day and a great reward for all of the hard work.

I tried to do wavy hair again by braiding my hair overnight, it ended up looking great once it fully dried, but again, wet hair for photos. Because I pick my clothes the night before, I just have to getup and get dressed in the mornings. Doesn't leave me time to try fix my hair though, so I think I'll stop trying this braid thing, haha.


Last worn: Aztec dress, belt, Asos ankle boots, Balenciaga sapphire city.

Here's what I wore to go to work for casual Friday today:



Top: Ripcurl navy hoodie, with gifted grey logo polo shirt from my work underneath
JeansJeanswest Super Skinny Jeans in Mid Indigo
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs studded mouse flats in grey
Bracelets: the usual plus gifted Balenciaga classic pearly grey double tour bracelet
BagBalenciaga Coquelicot Velo (2011 RH)


Very relaxed outfit for casual Friday today! Under the hoodie I'm wearing a team polo shirt that we were each presented with at the lunch on Thursday. It has a large logo on it that I can't really share on the blog. As it's cold in the mornings I usually cover up with a jacket, so this hoodie was a nice casual, comfortable alternative that had the added bonus of covering up the shirt nicely until I got to the office.

The Balenciaga velo seemed like the perfect bag choice, and had the added bonus of covering up the logo of my shirt on instagram! One of my favourite things about Balenciaga moto bags is how versatile they are - I wear them with dresses and heels or dressed down with jeans, they just work in any situation. :)

Took a little video of my bag using Vine now it's on android, for something a bit different. I'm AwayFromBlue on vine, feel free to add me. Thanks to Kim at A Very Sweet Blog for helping me with it!


Last worn: skinny jeans, studded mouse flats, Balenciaga velo. First time I've worn the jumper on the blog, and first time I've worn the polo shirt as it was a recent gift.

  21. Very smart, pairing the bright purple with the blue and black. I have to admit that I stared at your red velo for about 20 seconds, just watching it spin round and round. It really is such a versatile and gorgeous bag!
