Outfit: February 9th – Blue and Army Green




Just a quick snap today as I was busy putting washing on, making lunches and hanging sheets to dry before I left for work. I love the combination of blue and army green, be that a mid-blue like I’m wear here or a full-on navy. It just works. Ditto tan boots. I’ve said it before: they go with EVERYTHING.

Outfit: February 8th – Work to Play







It’s still February, it’s still cold out. The day I wore this I was off out after work, to the theatre (read: Town Hall) to see Pirates of Penzance. So I wanted an outfit that would work for the office and also for the evening. This is where a dark denim skirt is useful. It’s the epitome of smart/casual dressing. It’s a skirt and it’s a dark colour so it’s smart. But it’s also denim so it’s casual.

Outfit: February 7th – Striped Blazer and Army Green







It was a chilly minus 4˚C outside the morning I wore this, so needless to say I did not walk to work in these shoes. That’s what ugg boots are for. I don’t mind occasionally stashing a pair of shoes in my bag to change into, as long as they are lightweight. When you’re walking uphill you don’t want to be carrying any more weight than you need to.

Outfit: February 6th – Stripes, Denim and Sheepskin








We got snow! (Only a teensy bit, but still, snow!) So it was on with the EMU boots to walk to work, just in case the snow amounted to anything significant. (Spoiler alert: it didn’t.) It was also on with the fleece/velvet lined leggings for warmth. And the cashmere. All the cosy.

Outfit: February 5th – Prince of Wales Check and Black






This blazer is a bit of a statement with its fairly busy pattern (despite being just black and white (or grey, depending on how far away from it you are)) so I kept the rest of my outfit completely black with silver accents. The minute I put the boots on it started snowing (which wasn’t in the forecast), but only teeny tiny flakes and not very many so I decided to press ahead with the heels.

Outfit - February 3rd - Rainy Saturday







This was an outfit for a cold, rainy Saturday in February. It was still very much winter. I love a good denim skirt, especially when it doesn't have the traditional button and zip fastening. I find a flatter front much less bulky to wear. And you know how I love zips on things so this is basically a match made in heaven for me. Paired with a cosy sweater and fleece-lined tights I was lovely and warm in the miserable weather.

These EMU boots are genius because they are waterproof. Having been out in the snow my old pair have definitely seen better days so I decided to keep my eyes open for a replacement at a reasonable price. This pair popped up on eBay, BNWT, for around half the price they would have been new. And they are waterproof too, so bonus!

Outfit: February 2nd – Leopard Print Trainers



I knew Friday was going to be a busy day in the office so I dressed accordingly in a simple outfit of jeans, a sweater and trainers. Just because you’re going simple doesn’t mean you have to be boring though. Leopard print trainers are much more fun than regular ones!
