Today I'm introducing a new series to The Glitter Vixen: What I Wore To Work. I've been planning to do a work wear related series of outfit posts since January 2014 when I started my real job*~ considering that the vast majority of days I get dressed it has to be office appropriate and yet somehow, I have avoided posting any "work only outfits." 

Now, a few disclaimers. My office is very, very laid back and half of us turn up in jeans and hoodies - what's appropriate for my office may very well not be for yours. However, when I share a "What I Wore To Work" outfit post, I will endeavour to share outfits that I am very unlikely to wear outside of work and only ones that would work in other relatively laid back offices. 

So, onto today's outfit. Despite its appearance, this lovely pink check Missguided skirt I am showing off today is in fact, not the same as the one featured in this post. In fact, rather than being a miniskirt, it's actually a midiskirt, but the fact that it's a size six (and I am definitely not any more) and that it rolls up in the day means I haven't quite managed to capture the midi length in these photos...!

As the skirt is pretty loud on its own, I opted for simple black up top. My black Missguided swing crop top is hands down one of the most used items in my wardrobe for its versatility. It's great for warmer days in the office as it isn't too fleshy, but is very light and airy. It looks great with a variety of accessories and works so well with so many different outfits, both work and none work.

You've probably noticed a distinct lack of accessorising with this outfit, besides my glasses, which I wear for work a lot because shoving contact lenses in at 7.30am isn't pleasant. Not gonna lie, the main reason I'm not wearing a necklace or other jewellery with this look is simply because I was far too lazy to pick anything out. That being said, I'm still undecided as to what kind of necklace would work well with this outfit.

How would you accessorise this look?
