Weekday Wear Linkup! Grey Knits With Extra Details, Pencil Skirts and Chloe Paddington Bag

For today's Weekday Wear Linkup I'm sharing some more office wear, easy outfits for winter. Just a grey knit (with a little extra detail), a black pencil skirt, bright scarf and my forever classic Chloe Paddington bag.

What I wore:

Why I wore it:

A slightly warmer winter morning after a rather cold snap meant I pulled out my cheeriest scarf! This big yellow blanket scarf is one I sometimes think is too big for my petite frame. I've even considered chopping it in half before! But I can't deny that whenever I wear it it makes me smile, it's so bold and colourful. Was the perfect touch of colour with my otherwise neutral outfit.

The embellished grey knit is a wardrobe oldie too, it's so good with a pencil skirt to the office. I tend not to wear it on days at home with the boys much as I'm worried the little beads would soon fall off after a lot of tugging from a curious toddler....much more suited to time in the office with grown ups!

Felt like taking my Chloe Paddington out for another spin. It's a much treasured piece in my wardrobe, my first ever luxury handbag purchase, and despite it being the heaviest bag I own I just can't part with it. Chloe have even reinterpreted the padlock design recently, but nothing beats the original!

Why I wore it:

Another cosy and comfortable grey knit with a black pencil skirt for the office - if something works, why not repeat it! This time around the casual grey knit has a little extra detail in the form of foil polka dots! I do wear this knit on my stay at home mum days, but it also works well in the office.

I thought this blue tartan scarf would be a fun burst of colour with the black and grey, and while the jumper does have polka dots on it I thought it was subtle enough to be able to wear the tartan print with it. Again, I took my Chloe Paddington bag. I promptly put it back in its dustbag on its storage shelf when I got home though - I can only carry a bag this heavy so many times! And to think, before kids, at the height of the Paddington craze, I used to wear one (of 5 different ones I had!!) almost every day! 😅

How You Can Wear It:

A classic grey knit is a wardrobe staple, and picking one with a little extra detail like a foil print or added embellishment makes your outfit feel a little more special. A bold accessory like a scarf can add an extra touch of colour and warmth to your outfit.

  6. The good thing about the Paddington being heavy is that it's a great work out just by using it:D It does really look great with your outfits though, and OMG! That yellow scarf! I think I need one in my life now. It does bring such cheeriness to an outfit.
    Happy Monday, and hope you had a fab weekend:)

  38. How good you didn't cut the yellow scarf in two halfs as this scarf is perfect in that way! And I know why you are wearing the black pencil skirt only for the office - at home such a classy and beautful skirt can be really destroyed :)

  39. I adore that yellow scarf and it totally brightens up the summer months. I need to remember that when winter finally arrives and usually for us it stays for months and months and months so it's easy to start to feel drab. I agree, if it works, repeat!
