Wintry “What I Wore” Wednesday- Work

Blogmas Day 9;

Today’s “What I Wore” Wednesday is for work.  I work in an office but between getting buses and walking there I can’t really afford to go too dressy.  I usually opt for the more comfortable option.  The dress code is smart casual which is typically black slacks and a dressy tops but I like to mix and match.


I love these comfortable coloured jeans.   I have these in maroon, which I opted for today, and in tan and I they work with both casual and dressy looks.  My top is a plunge neck, see-through, white shirt with three-quarter length sleeves and a zip down front.  I love this piece as I think it’s a little unique.  As it’s see through I wear a cami underneath, usually white but today I could only find black!

My cardigan is actually one I bought for a Stepford Wives costume for Halloween.  I’ve got nothing against cardigans, I just don’t think they particularly like me!  There’s something cute about them and that cuteness kind of disappears when you’re 5’8″ 😛  It’s kind of a marine green colour so I was just a big ball of Christmas today.

Again, I threw on my large army green jacket.  I finished the look with casual, flat, black boots and brought my massive brown/purple wool scarf for warmth.

With the weather we’ve been having I felt the least I deserved when I got home was a glass of wine!  And the mince pie might be research for this coming “Foodie Friday” 😉 Stay tuned!


Note on my make-up;

I’ve kept my make-up fairly minimal this week, deciding against highlighter and bronzer.

Eyebrows; No.7 Beautiful Eyebrow Kit- Light
Mascara; Essence- get BIG! lashes
