Colour Block Top, Plaid Pencil Skirt, Alexander Wang Rocco | Blue Leopard Print Scarf, Skinny Jeans, Mulberry Alexa Bag

Here's what I wore to work on Thursday:
Top: Cotton On Finland Spliced top in hommus / black / washed orange
SkirtFrench Connection plaid pencil skirt
Shoes: Nine West black flats that usually live under my desk in the office
Bracelets: the usual
BagAlexander Wang Rocco with gold hardware in dark argon from Reebonz

Not too sure about this outfit - maybe a necklace would have looked great with the top? It's definitely missing something. Swapped the pencil skirt out for a pair of skinny jeans when I went out shopping in the evening and felt much more comfortable  Although I wore thongs to and from the office I wore these flats when I was at work, they stay under my desk for when I need a nice pair of flat black shoes. Managed to take this photo when I popped out the office for a bit of fresh air.

Last worn: colour block top, pencil skirt, Alexander Wang Rocco.

Here's what I wore to work for casual Friday today:
Scarf: Cotton On animal print scarf in blue (New purchase)
Top: Supre white gathered top
JeansJeanswest Super Skinny Jeans in Mid Indigo
ShoesNine West fascinate ballet flats in silver glitter
Bracelets: the usual plus Indigo Rose Design waxed leather cream howlite beaded wrap bracelet
BagMulberry regular size Alexa bag in foggy grey from Reebonz sale

The rain wasn't going away by the time I got home in the evening, so had to take indoor photos. Just like when I started the blog! Only now the clothes rack is so weighed down it looks like it's falling on one side...and my shoe collection has expanded...haha. My push to get rid of most of my heels and replace all of my thongs with sandals and cute flats has meant I've run out of spaces for shoes.
Starting to think I should get up earlier in the morning and get photos then, as it's difficult to get good lighting at the end of the day. Really liked this outfit, just not the photos.

Tried to get a shot of my nails in the detail picture - got a free Ciate statement nail mani at lunch time. First time I've tried caviar polish, so I'm interested to see how it lasts! It's 'lemon fizz' I'm wearing, there is a better pic on instagram here.

Last worn: top, skinny jeans, shoes, Mulberry Alexa bag.

  1. Yay for free manis! I love the polish :)

  2. Mica, that colorblock top and plaid look great together. I would've never thought of that on my own. A necklace would go well with it. I saw your Ciate manicure on Instagram and it is so pretty. I haven't tried that brand yet. It's on my list. Great casual outfit! You have the best scarves! Have a great weekend!

    1. Thanks Kim! Worth a try, although it doesn't last long which is a shame

  3. love your bag! :)

  4. I love the pencil skirt. The first look is actually one of my favourites of yours. I think it is really classy and I love the colours.

  5. Lovely skirt and top - i could have sworn it was a dress as they look perfect together.

  10. that color blocked top is going to be so perfect for so many outfit Mica! Also loving that leopard scarf :)
    And that's eery how you wrote a list and found it in a guy...because that's exactly what happened with Patrick. After my first boyfriend, I was frustrated with guys and wrote a list of characteristics I wanted in a guy. After I met P and we got together, I came across that list and was amazed to see how he fit everything I'd wanted.
    However, as you know, we're not together now, and its for the best. We just truly want the best for each other, and I'm certain there's more than I could imagine for myself out there!

    Trendy Teal

    1. Definitely more for you out there - you're still young and although it wasn't meant to be with P you will find the perfect guy for you :)

  11. Pretty! At first I thought the navy panels on the top were part of the skirt! xx

  12. i love love what you wore to work on thursday!

  15. The first look is lovely! I would have added a chunky gold statement necklace just to finish it off but it does look fab the way you've worn it too!

    I HATE taking poutfit photos indoors, I tried that when I first started blogging too and never again! Ha.



  16. I love the nail caviars, they are so fun!
