WhatLauraWore: My Working Wardrobe

Evening All, how was your day?

Thought I'd share an outfit of the day for you today.  The dress code at my workplace is smart casual and many of the girls wear black trousers and a nice, not too revealing top and some wear little blouses with fitted waistcoats and pencil skirts or suits.  It really varies from department to department but essentially you can wear anything you like as long as it isn't jeans, sportswear, clothing with large logos, shorts, that kind of thing.

Today I chose to wear quite a plain outfit, very black but with gold highlights.  I was in a huge rush this morning to spritzed in a bit of Umberto Giannini's Backcomb in a Bottle and applied some very natural, basic make up.  These photos were taken when I got home from work tonight.

Outfit Breakdown
Cropped Cardi- black with gold hearts- from the Beth Ditto Collection at Evans

As you can see from my pictures, I like to be comfortable at work.  I'm not too bothered about being all dolled up, I'd rather be smart but comfy.  I think until I lose some weight, the suited and booted look just wont suit me!

What outfits do you wear for work?  Is your workplace really strict on what you can wear or are they quite lenient?

  2. Love that cardigan, it's really cute! I go for the pencil skirt or suit look for work if I've got a big meeting or something, otherwise I'm similar to you in black trousers and tops. x
