Black and White Office Outfit, Pink Skull Scarf | Casual Friday Jeans, Red Accessories, Balenciaga Velo

Here's what I wore to work on Thursday:

Away From Blue black pants for the office white ruffle shirt pink skull scarf

Away From the Blue Balenciaga GSH Part Time bag worn crossbody

JacketAsos Black by Markus Lupfer printed leather jacket
ScarfAlexander McQueen pink pashmina in skull and floral print
Necklace: gift from DH
TopAsos contrast trim front ruffle blouse
PantsAsos black skinny pants in cotton twill
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs patent mouse flats in black and white
Bracelets: the usual
BagBalenciaga part time in black 2010 with GSH


Gave up trying to handle the cold and just wore pants to work Thursday, haha! Didn't realise how Asos-centric this outfit was until I wrote the post... Picked this top to wear as it was a little more formal to balance out the comfy pants for the office, and because I haven't worn it in a while.

Added the pink scarf to keep me warm and to add a bit of colour to what I was wearing. Have been a little repetitive lately with pulling this jacket, but it's right at the front of my wardrobe after I put it away so it's the first one I reach for!

Linking up with Friday's Fancies, Friday's Fab Favourites, Casual Friday LinkupFashion and Faith, Friday's Five, Trend Spin Linkup today.


Last worn: Markus Lupfer leather jacket, pink scarf, ruffle detail top, black pants, mouse flats, Balenciaga part time bag.

A different jacket at last! Thought I would try red with this blue jacket for a change :) Simple casual Friday outfit, again more for warmth than anything. Was too cold to even realise how bad the lighting was this morning, not one of my better pictures with a super sunshine-y neck. I loved the outfit though.
Kept my scarf on in the office as the red felt nice and cheerful against the grey. Also had some flowers on my desk as it was Daffodil Day today. Was lovely smelling them through the day.



Last worn: blue leather jacket, red skull scarf, Topshop grey knit, skinny jeans, red suede flats, Balenciaga Velo.

  6. Hi, thank you for stopping by my blog. I give up wearing dresses/skirts at below 15˚C (60˚F) and start wearing pants. I love the daffodils. They are a sign that it's getting warmer. Your bags are lovely.

  10. Mica, that red & blue looks great together. I'm totally admiring your leather jacket in the first pic. It has a lovely print on it (sleeve and bottom). I've never seen anything like it on leather. Gorgeous!

  14. Daffodils are some of my favorite flowers! They always bloom around my birthday ^^ Again, these are two lovely outfits. Your blue suede jacket is a very lovely piece, and I love that you paired it with a darker tone of red to balance the colors out. xo
