Kept everything fairly neutral after my bright monochrome orange outfit on Wednesday! Wearing the last of my new purchases from my DFO Spring accessories shopping trip on the weekend, this cute belt. A couple of times I've worn this skirt people have suggested I add a belt, so when I saw this belt in Forever New my skirt popped to mind right away! Really liked the little bit of colour the belt added, brought out some of the blue in the skirt print. 

Last worn: brown tee, vintage skirt, cut-out detail flats, Chloe Paddington bag.

Here's what I wore to work for casual Friday today:

Shoes: Rubi primo ballet flats in silver
Bracelets: the usual plus Hermes Kelly Double tour bracelet in rubis
BagLouis Vuitton MM damier azur neverfull

I purchased this top a year ago and this is only the third time it's been worn, that's a really bad rate for such a pretty top! I definitely need to wear it more often. The top and blazer have been paired together before and I wasn't too happy with the outfit, but this time around I think it looks better with the top partially tucked in. What do you think?

Linking up with Friday's Fancies, Casual Friday, Friday's Fab Favourites, Friday's Five today.
