Primark Haul – Pastel Skinnies, Aztec T Shirt, Military Dress

I’m forever spending a small fortune in Primark, I just can’t resist it when they consistently bring out such on trend pieces at great prices.

This is a real mixed bunch of items but here goes starting with this black body con illusion floral dress. Super stretchy, it actually works well to hold you in and give a clean line (when worn with Spanx!) I love the colours and tropical print on this and it’s perfect for wearing on summer nights. Next to it is this super short pair of super cute shorts.  The ditsy floral print makes it so much more interesting than black but just as wearable, and they too will look gorgeous in summer with sandals and a plain top.

Next these almost matching 1960’s short tunic dresses. Check out those collars. Love.

This pair of sleeveless tops will be great in summer (dreaming) with leggings and jeans, but until then they’ll have to work with a black biker. The Aztec one is my favourite but you can’t beat a Rolling Stones rock top.

The pale pink skinnies might just have been a bad idea, but we’ll see how it goes!

Lastly, here’s a whole load of accessories for your visual delight! I swear I spend more on accessories than clothes. Scarves are quite often a big part of my outfit, and these Alexander McQueen esque skull print scarves will liven up any outfit. I live in pumps and this oxblood colour will add some colour to my wardrobe.  The bracelets (Pandora style bracelet for £3) and hair bobbles and pins are self explanatory!

Where do you guys tend to shop when it’s time for a new wardrobe?!

Oasis Outfit – 1950’s Secretary Style

Sequin jumper // Stretch pencil skirt / Oasis

Here’s an outfit idea for anyone who needs to stick to an office dress code but wants to look chic and stylish too.

A slim fit knit and fitted pencil skirt are great for keeping warm in an office whilst sticking to office friendly black. The sequin detail might be a bit much if you work in a law firm for example but you could always go for something plain. I picked up both of these in Oasis and you could wear each piece separately (the knit is great for weekends too!). Just throw on a patent belt (one with a bow in the centre would be super cute) and some pointy kitten heels and you’re good to go!

What’s your office dress code like?
