Office attire-d

'Ello all, 
Wednesday has rolled around so quickly! is it me or is time speeding up? Ok maybe that's something an old person says... maybe i am an oldie...hmmm.
I was running on about 3 or 4 hours sleep today. My normal sleep loving little Neo decided last night that sleep was lame and he was gunna yell and shout from his cot from the wee hours of 1am till about 4.30am . i was ratty.
It was such a good job i had laid out everything to wear to work today(including undies, tights and accessories.. organised, i know!! i shocked myself too!) if it wasn't for that i probably would have attended  work today in my pj's, which weren't even matching.

Coat ,Pocket Dress and necklace: Next
Boots: Tesco
Brooch on coat: Vintage from hubby at Christmas (he has great brooch taste;)

my props for today.... sheep!!!:)
Welcome to Wales!
Now my office doesn't have a dress code, its our business so we kinda wear what we want(within reason, i do try to not stroll in in joggers as tempting as it is sometimes!) I find simple dresses are so easy for days like today, i own so many dresses as it takes away any thinking process. no wondering what to put together, its all done for you! and for a day in the office, i like sometimes taking away any procrastinating first thing in the morning. simple simple simple.
Do you have different clothes you wear to work?

  1. Aww, hope Neo gives you a better night's sleep tonight! Not fun when you are tired, I know! Love your coat, really suits you! x

  2. Oh, I hope little Neo settles well tonight!
    Well done on your organisation! You chose such a gorgeous dress! I have a work uniform (fast food chain while I'm a student) and when I leave that place I'll (hopefully) be a teacher, so I do need to look smart!
    And, as you have wished us a happy St Dwynwen's day, I'll wish you a happy Robert Burns day! :) xo

  3. Your coats stunning, I want it! ha xxx

  4. this look is very pretty. the boots are great. i still can't get over these gorgeous backgrounds you've got going on.

  5. I love the word cwtch, I think it was the first word I learnt after moving here and I've made it my mission to introduce it to as many people as I possible can!

    Your dress is fab, nothing like a lovely comfy dress to pick you right up. I feel you on the lack of sleep thing, unfortunately mine is just because I'm rubbish rather than because I have a small child ;)

  6. The coat is beautiful.

    Followed the blog, hope you don’t mind. And who knows, maybe you’ll visit me someday too.

  7. Love your pocket dress..the colors are soo lively.

  22. 4 hours of sleep??? That's pretty rough!! You look great though :) my work has a similar policy about dress code, there really isn't one! I pretty much wear whatever I want but i tty and watch the short skirts!!

  23. Sometimes, what's acceptable in your personal life may not be the same for your professional life. When you go to work, take note that you represent your company and you don't want to compromise your reputation for the sake of fashion.
