Half suited, not booted, yellow tartaned
Tartan cape: ASOS (on sale), Blazer: Next (part of suit) similar, Chinos: La Redoute, Sweater: F+F, Socks: Topshop, Wedges: ASOS
Belt: ASOS, Watch: Gift (old), Silver bracelet: My christening bracelet, Black rings: Lulworth Cove giftshop, Rose ring: New Look, Top finger rings: ASOS, Blue bracelets: Debenhams / New Look
Necklace: Topshop (old but I still really love it: owls and bows and lightning?!)
I'm sure the word "tartaned" of the post's title isn't really a word, and I've probably spelt it wrong. Not to worry - I guess you can't really spell a word wrong if you're the one making it up ;)
So this was quite a straightforward work outfit - this is about as corporate as I go for the office. I simply threw on some fun socks and kept the cape handy for when the office gets cold (hurry up springtime...!). Though I'm not so happy about the socks/shoes/trouser hemline thing going on now I've seen the photo. Another one I've learned from the photo, not the mirror: with these chinos don't wear socks and heels. Would have looked better I think with socks and brogues, or heels and no socks. And the cape was a bit creased for the photo, but it came home with me in my bag, oops.
All of this sounds a bit negative for me, doesn't it - I'm so sorry! Perhaps an online thread I read about my blog (the negativity of which highly amused me) has inadvertently rubbed off a little... No need for any of you lovely people to comment about that here - I should have one of my Musings written for my next post all about it - you can read it then and chuckle along with me :D
Happy weekend everyone!
