Black and White [Outfit Post]


When it comes to throw-on-and-go-easy-to-wear work outfits, I most definitely have a distinctive style. It's a sheer blouse (with vest top for modesty, of course) with either smart skinny jeans or a pencil skirt. Today's outfit post is a prime example of this.





Outfit Details: 
Beret: H+M (old!)
Leather Jacket: Zara (old!)
Blouse: Sainsbury's
Jeans: Primark
Boots: New Look

As you may or may not know, I had surgery earlier this year. On the morning of my surgery I was waiting with my mum for the anaesthetists to come and collect me. I was wearing an ever so sexy hospital gown, whilst she was wearing a gorgeous skirt with a lovely blouse. I told her I really liked her outfit, and that I felt the blouse wouldn't be out of place in my own wardrobe.

Fast forward few a days and I'm a broken shell of a girl coming home with one less organ. I was very, very unhappy after my surgery - it was a lot worse than I thought it was going to be and recovery is one of the hardest things I've ever had to go through. However, I was very much cheered up to get home and find my mum had bought me a blouse of my very own.

So, whilst this is only a very simple, monochrome outfit, it's a special outfit to me, of which the blouse from good old Sainos is the star. 

The villain of this outfit is the jeans. A cheap Primark pair, that served me well...until I sat down after taking these photos and they split right open down the thigh! I was due to get on a train back to Reading like an hour after this happened and I had no other trousers with me so I had to do a mad dash into town. I replaced them with a very nice pair of "Yasmin" jeans from New Look. 

It's a bit warm for it at the moment, but when the cold weather comes, I like to finish my "work uniform" off with a leather jacket and one of my many berets. 

Do you have a distinctive workwear style?
