Leather Jacket, Fitted Shirt, Pencil Skirt, Sarah Conners Bag | Black Tee, Printed Skirt, RM Nikki

Here's what I wore to work on Monday:

away from blue warehouse jacquard pencil skirt black shirt leather jacket

away from the blue sarah conners ebony python tote bag

JacketAsos Black by Markus Lupfer printed leather jacket
Necklace: gift from DH
Top: thrifted Ben Sherman ladies shirt (New purchase)
SkirtWarehouse blue jacquard pencil skirt
ShoesNine West fascinate ballet flats in silver glitter
Bracelets: the usual
BagSarah Conners python bag in ebony


Bare legs! It was predicted to be really warm on Monday, so decided to go without tights. Warmed up nicely during the day, and I didn't miss them much. So happy for Spring!
This shirt is the other pieces I picked up at the op-shop at the local festival a while ago. Couldn't believe I found a new Ben Sherman shirt in my size! Definitely a lucky find. Tried to dress it down a little and not be too formal by leaving it un-tucked over my skirt, although I think it would look nice tucked in too.


Last worn: printed leather jacket, navy and black pencil skirt, glitter flats, Sarah Conners bag. First time I've worn the shirt as it was a recent purchase.





Here's what I wore to work today:

away from blue printed pleated skirt chain detail cardi black tee RM nikki

away from the blue rebecca minkoff silverstreak nikki hobo bag

JacketAsos black chain trim detail cardi 
Necklace: House of Harlow gold mini key pendant necklace
Tee Glassons plain black long sleeve top
Skirt: Garfunkle Australia pleated print skirt
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs patent mouse flats in black and white
Bracelets: the usual
Bag: Rebecca Minkoff Nikki in Silverstreak


Bare legs again today! This outfit is inspired by a lovely lady I walked past in the street the other day, who if she wasn't wearing this skirt, was wearing one extremely similar. Really liked the look of the plain long sleeve black top with the skirt, and was able to recreate her outfit for myself. Unfortunately, the dreaded knee brace is back as last night I managed to slip and twist my knee. So I wore my comfiest flats too.

Linking up with My Style Monday, Trend Spin Linkup, What I wore Wednesday today.


Last worn: Gold chain cardi, plain black top, printed skirt, mouse flatsRM Nikki bag.

  2. I never knew Ben Sherman had a women's collection! We sell their menswear in the store where I have my summer job and they sell like crazy :) They're such good quality and you are one lucky lady to have found on in a clearance! Love both outfits :) The second one is my fave today as I am in love with anything yellow haha ;) x

    1. Yep, I was so lucky to find one, and in my size at the thrift store! They do have a small ladies line, although I couldn't find many pieces from it online. Must be mainly a guy's brand.

  16. I hope your knee feels better, is it a frequent repeat injury? I'm absolute in love with the second look! That skirt has the prettiest pattern!! The MBMJ flats are absorbable! I wish he'd make them in chinchillas haha of definitely get one :)

    1. Aww chinchilla flats would be adorable! I hurt my knee a few years ago now, and it's mostly okay, but when I fall or twist it the old pain comes back and I need to do all of the exercises and tricks to build it back up while it heals.
