Happy Hump Day! We’re finally passing the midweek signpost, and we’re officially in March! Spring is finally here! Can you tell I’m excited?
Even though I love winter and the cold weather, I can’t wait to wear a nice outfit and not have a coat cover it up. I also can’t wait for more sun and blue skies, and the beach in summer.
The only office job I’ve ever had has been through my work experience days in a newsroom. For that, obviously, you’ve got to dress smartly – no jeans, no super-low tops, no hats, and so on. But I feel like this outfit is super work-appropriate, down to the straight-legged, plain black trousers.
I got this cardigan from a secondhand boutique in Nottingham, and I fell in love with it right away. I couldn’t get over how Chanel-esque it was; the tweed, the tassels, the pearl detailing…it’s just beautiful.
This necklace, with its velvet ribbon and diamond-esque heart is reminiscent of Valentine’s Day, and way back when my last fashion post was (uh-oh, I’m slacking). I think it gives the outfit a little punch.
And, finally, the bag. I love it so much, and it really ties an outfit together.
