Printed Dress, Red Belt, Balenciaga Part Time | Threadless Tee, Black Skirt, Sarah Conners Python Bag

Here's what I wore to work on Thursday:

NecklaceHouse of Harlow 5 station necklace in black and silver
DressJeanswest 'Mia' border print dress
Belt: op-shop find
Shoes:  Marc by Marc Jacobs patent leather logo plaque flats
Bracelets: the usual
BagBalenciaga part time in black 2010 with GSH

Wanted a nice simple outfit for Thursday so went for a printed dress, always my go-to for office wear! Although the red in the belt doesn't match the red in the dress exactly, I thought it looked good enough.

Linking up with Friday's Fab Favourites, Friday's Fancies, What I wore to work, Casual Friday Linkup today.

Last worn: geometric print dress, red belt, patent MbMJ flats, Balenciaga Part Time bag.

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

Sunglasses: pink leopard print sunglasses from Paddy's Markets in Sydney
TeeThreadless "Ambition Killed The Cat" girly tee in maroon
Skirt: Jeanswest 'Helena' black jacquard skirt
ShoesWittner 'Bolla' black bow detail flats
Bracelets: the usual plus Marc by Marc Jacobs enamel turnlock stripey hinge black and white bangle
BagSarah Conners python bag in ebony

Trying something a little different for a casual Friday! Tried to step out of my comfort zone a little and not wear jeans. Also gave me the opportunity to wear this skirt that I haven't worn in a while, and one of my many Threadless tees that don't get much wear. Although there will be days I fall back on simple highly repeated pieces (like Thursday's outfit), I'm trying to make a bit of an effort to wear more of my wardrobe lately. Doesn't make sense to have lots of clothes and hardly wear them all.

  1. I can barely see it but I like how there's a nice print on your black skirt. I like how you have good posture in your pics, I will definitely make sure I do too if I ever do another OOTD. Have a great weekend :D

    1. It is a lovely subtle texture on the skirt! :) I find it easiest just to stand boringly for my photos, so it's good it creates the illusion of good posture I guess! haha!
