Office Looks – Totally Inappropriate Looks for the Office

August 26, 2013

How are you guys? Nothing better than doing an Office Looks post while I’m on holiday. That’s right, by the time you read this, I’ll be sat on the beach 😀

The theme this time is pattern mixing and on two very different looks. Which one is your favourite?

All of the items in this ensemble have been around for a few years. The top and skirt are from H&M, the sandals from Swedish Hasbeens, for H&M and the red bow on my stripy top is from Springfield.

This was one of those ideas that looked better in my head than the actual outfit but I still went with it anyway. I’m all about experimenting! Both the shirt and the trousers are stripy, although it’s not that apparent due to the glare. The shirt is Diane Von Furstenberg and I picked it up for something like 2 dollars ina charity shop in Florida. The trousers are Ralph Lauren and I got it from TJ Maxx, also in Florida. The bag in turn I got it from TK Maxx, here in the UK. The scarf is vintage and was a present from the lovely Andrea from Teetoo. The accessories are a mix of Matalan (that I got for the makeover photos) and gifted by another lovely Canadian, Ariane from Style Sud Est. The shoes are Modekungen and were one of those purchases that although it wasn’t on sale, I had to have them…

I did a matching manicure!

I swear it doesn’t get any better than these perspex heel shoes! They are quite surreal. I am joining the party over at Patti’s Visible Monday, as it has become a habit I don’t want to quit!

    Hooray for your shoes! Both are winners! I’ll bet you’re barefoot right now. Have a nice vacay!

    Those heels are trippy! Well, hopefully not really. I bet people look twice when you wear them.

    I like the first outfit best. The stripes and the anchors are so cute together, and the outfit has such a nice silhouette.

    love particularly your first sailor style outfit, because stripes and anchors are both fabulous and love insanely red accents on everything!!, so cute sandals!
    you rock red and blue and your headscarf fits you so nicely!!
    beijinhos and wish you’re enjoying that beach!!

    Can’t make me choose … won’t do it. Both adorable. So different that it’s hard to compare to choose. You look lovely in both. Astonishing brogues … is that what they are, still? If you are now sitting on the beach, I hope you’re having the best time (slathered in sunblock, of course.)
