Black: Blazer, Printed Tank, Pink Shoes, Bayswater | Leather Jacket, Grey Pencil Skirt, Heels, Balenciaga Velo

Here's what I wore to work on Tuesday:

Jacket: No label black single button blazer
NecklaceHouse of Harlow sunburst necklace in silver and grey
Dress: Glassons 'Cassie' printed tank
Skirt: Jeanswest black ponte pencil skirt
Shoes: gifted Novo Carmina fuschia suede flats
Bracelets: the usual
BagMulberry Bayswater in Oak NVT leather

Haha to be honest I was too cold to smile properly for the photos! Was warm in the office in my long sleeve top on Monday so wore a tank instead. But it made it really cold taking photos with just a blazer over the top.

The tank print has some pink in it, so I thought I'd wear a pink bag and shoes to match, then worried that may be too much pink and decided to carry the bayswater instead. In the photo you can't see the pink in the tank though, so probably could have worn a pink bag too.

Last worn: Black blazer, Jeanswest pencil skirt, pink flats, Mulberry Bayswater. First time I've worn the top as it is a recent purchase.

Here's what I wore to work today:

JacketAsos Black by Markus Lupfer printed leather jacket (New purchase)
TopTarget ruffle sleeve dog print blouse
SkirtAsos tailored tab front pencil skirt in grey
ShoesWittner 'Bloomy' black heels
Bracelets: the usual
BagBalenciaga Coquelicot Velo (2011 RH)

This is one of the two new leather jackets I bought to keep me warm in this suddenly cold weather. I really like the print as it makes it different from my plain black leather jacket, and it being reduced from $335 made it even more tempting! Felt nice and warm wearing it, it will pop up a lot more often.

Last worn: dog print top, grey pencil skirt, Wittner heels, Balenciaga velo. First time I've worn the leather jacket as it is a new purchase.

One last little note I want to add - If you have heard about the tornado in Oklahoma please consider doing what you can to help those impacted by it. My church, Life Church, has setup a page to show how you can help, and is collecting items for donations if you are local to the area. There is also the Red Cross, and more ways you can help on the NBC site. I've never been to Oklahoma and I only volunteer at Church Online, but many of my team members and the staff I know and work with are there as it's where the church grew. It's been horrible seeing what has happened there, and I'm praying for those who are dealing with the devastation.

And if you are blog-hopping looking for a bit of frivolity to escape the horrible stories on the news, watch this good news story instead. Especially at the 1.30 mark, it's beautiful.

  7. Haha I reckon you smiled just fine :)
    How do you like the Bay bag? I always feel the clasp is quite cumbersome to open and close. It's nice you can dress casual for work lol! I can too but only up to certain extend though :)

    1. Thanks! :) I like the Bay, it's not the easiest to get in and out of with the clasp like you said, and the leather needs to be babied a lot, but it's a great work bag and holds a ton! :)

  8. I love your first bag! :D
