Purple Tee, Black Skirt, Marc By Marc Jacobs Fran Bag | Leona Edmiston Print Dress, RM mini MAB

Here's what I wore to work on Wednesday:


away from blue marc by marc jacobs fran

Necklace: Cotton On Jewel drop necklace in black and silver
Top: Cotton On purple long sleeved top
Skirt: Jeanswest 'Helena' black jacquard skirt
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs patent mouse flats in black and white
Bracelets: the usual
BagMarc By Marc Jacobs Classic Q Fran bag with gold hardware in carob brown


A nice simple outfit today with a bit of colour for all the running around I had to do at work today. Although I added the statement necklace I kept thinking this outfit was missing something, maybe a nice scarf instead? Actually thought up a replacement outfit last night, but went with this in the morning as it was easier than changing around and risking running out of time to get to work, haha.

Linking up with Fashion and FaithThee-fer Thursday, Friday's FiveFriday's Fab Favourites today.


Last worn: purple long sleeve tee, Jeanswest skirt, patent mouse flats, Marc by Marc Jacobs Fran bag.





Here's what I wore to work today:

Necklacecustom Cooper charm by Silhoupette
DressLeona Edmiston Renee disc print dress
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs studded mouse flats in grey
Bracelets: the usual
BagRebecca Minkoff MAB mini in soft grey


This is the 'replacement' outfit I thought up the other night, thought I'd give it a go today :) A nice simple, comfortable dress as I had a lot of meetings to go to. The grey accessories seemed like an easy option with the bright printed dress.

The Asos 70% off sale has an extra 10% off with code 'WOW10' for a limited time, if you have had your eye on anything. I've updated the sales list with that sale and other deals :)


Last worn: Leona Edmiston dress, studded mouse flats, Rebecca Minkoff mini MAB.

    1. He's very cute, and when he used to occasionally be in photos people would really like it, so I try have him in as many photos as possible now :) He follows me like a little shadow anyway, haha :)

  8. I think with the purple outfit, perhaps the necklace should have been in a brighter colour like bright silver? That way the necklace will stand out more and show off your neckline better? :)

  19. I like both of the looks although maybe the skirt in the top one could go a little lower? I mean pull down the waist a bit?? I absolutely love that carob brown Marc by Marc Jacobs bag! sparkle2day.com

    1. I should try that next time! I might need to not have a top tucked in though, or unzip it a little to get it to sit lower, haha. :)
