Winter Office Wear: Louis Vuitton Bleu Monogram Shawl With Pencil Skirts And Blazers

You may remember I got a beautiful LV Christmas gift, a classic monogram shawl I'd wanted for years. I had to wait until now and winter to wear it, but as soon as scarf weather arrived I was thrilled to take it out for a spin! It's coldest during my commutes to and from work as it's outside the heat of the day, so the cosy scarf kept me suitably warm.

What I wore:

Skirt: Cotton On 'Mica' mesh spot skirt in dusty pink
ShoesWalnut Melbourne 'Ava' black lizard ballet flats (also available in silver)
BagBalenciaga part time in black 2010 with SGH

Why I wore it:

I wasn't too sure about how this outfit would all work together. I really wanted to try the navy peasant top with the pink pencil skirt, but I wasn't sure if the blue scarf would work with the navy. I'm so pleased I gave this a go though, the different shades of blue look great together.

As an added bonus, the scarf helped hide the makeup spill I had on my top in the morning - I did try wash it off but makeup is stubborn and I didn't have a lot of time, so I appreciated being able to wrap up a bit and hide the evidence of me rishing about in the morning and being my usual clumsy self! The only downside is that it does cover the top up quite a bit in the outfit and makes it a little hard to see, but it's this one I recently bought from Jeanswest in one of their sales.

Ended up having lunch with hubby in the city. I got a call on my way to lunch saying he'd been another office and was near my building so we had lunch together. Was a nice change to catch up without the kids in tow!

Why I wore it:

Just like the outfit above, I'd been wanting to wear this top and skirt combination together. I recently unboxed all my winter things, this long sleeve teal henley is one of them. I thought the colour combination with the blue skirt was nice, but I did worry the top was a bit casual for the office. The blazer helped to dress is up a little, and I've mentioned previously how I really like this cream jersey blazer with the lace skirt, as they have similar colours.

The cream blazer, tan flats and black Balenciaga bag were nice neutral options to wear with all of the colour in my outfit. I've only recently started wearing green and blue together, and I loved the different shades of blue with the teal, from the lace pencil skirt and the blue monogram shawl. Once again, this scarf kept me cosy on the early morning commute. It's part wool, so perfect for wrapping up in on a cold winter morning. I might even have to get my tights out next!

How You Can Wear It:

You don't have to stick with a neutral colour pallette when putting together a work outfit. It's easy to wear a colourful pencil skirt and top together, and still perfect for a business causal office. A scarf, as well as being a winter essential, is another nice way to add some colour to your layers and is easily removed when you get to your desk, so you can be a litle more adventurous with a bold colour or print.

  6. I really like the navy top with the pink skirt, the blue of the scarf is a little too vibrant for my taste, but I never had a thing for bright blues. Probably because everyone tells me I should wear them with my blonde hair!

  16. hello Mica
    How lucky you are, this gift is awesome !! I really like the pencil skirts for the office. They are so elegant and perfect and don't show more than they should !!! I liked the second look most, you know I have a childhood trauma with the polka dots, any day I tell the story on the blog.- This also happens to me in a hurry to make-up myself I ended mess up my clothes, but its okay we don't you see anything!!!

    Finally summer came to Portugal oh yeah !!!

  21. I adore this LV scarf, it brings a lot of fun to your outfit! Another great benefit is that it can be a great cover up if needed! I love lunches with my hubby but sadly he has recently moved to the office in another part of London so we can’t do it anymore . We used to lunch out pretty much a few times a week. Great times! 😘💞💖

  22. What a fabulous blue scarf. I've always loved this shade of royal blue. It's so vibrant and instantly would put anyone in a great mood. I'm very much a fan of scarves – my collection has been growing rapidly as of last year haha! I find that they are a great way to add a level of elegant and complexity to an outfit. It can also look very Parisian as well! I especially like this colour of blue on a dress with polka dots. I think that would be perfect for summer!

  39. You always make me smile, Mica with your winter outfits. They're such a difference compared to our winter looks here when we have a million layers on and are still blue, ha ha. If only I could wear a skirt in winter! This scarf to me is more suited to spring! It's gorgeous though! You did well waiting so long to wear it. The blue shade is just so beautiful, and the subtle monogram is ideal. Glad it hid your make up stain too ;) ha ha :D
