Spring Look Book - Workwear Reworked

In the second of my Spring looks I thought it would be fun to give your work wardrobe a bit of a refresh. I've chosen two key pieces/trends that you're going to be able to easily wear together, and match with existing items in your wardrobe. 

I've never been the most conventional workwear wearer (that's a mouthful) if I'm honest. I'm a big fan of a pinafore with a jaunty blouse and oversized items that buck the traditional structured office wear tradition. So if you came here for pencil skirts and suits, you're in the wrong place. But what I do have are two items that would work well in anyone's working wardrobe. 

Statement tees and jumpers have become a huge story this past year and they're the perfect way to add a bit of personality to your wardrobe, and in my opinion, Joanie Clothing have one of the best collections of these cute jumpers and tees. 

I'm wearing the Ruby Face jumper in an XL which would probably fit up to a 24, depending on boobage. Now that's the only thing I will say, Joanie, do only go up to a 22 which is a shame, but if you're looking for other similar alternatives, give New Look and Simply Be a try, they do some great slogan/statement items. 

I've had a fair few bits from Joanie, and I can say without a doubt, they are gorgeous quality. The fabric is always fantastic, they wash amazingly and I love the retro vibe of the brand. And as someone who doesn't really dabble in the vintage side much nowadays, I think their pieces work amazingly with a more modern wardrobe. 

As always, I have a bit of a confession to make... Look, what can I say, this is my little corner of the internet where I feel most comfortable haha! BUT I have a bit of a fashion rule... NOW I am normally the first to tell people to wear whatever they want, and throw the rule book out of the window. But I have this thing where if I'm wearing something tight/short on top, I have to wear something loose on the bottom and then visa versa - loose on top, tight on bottom. And to this day, I'm not actually sure why... but that's how I like it and it just works for me. And this outfit is no exception to that rule. 

On my bottom half I went for these polka dot wide leg trousers, or if you're really old like me, 'palazzo pants' hahaha!! The pants in question are from Evans, and the whole polka dot thing is huge news this season, it's absolutely everywhere. These beauties are going to be perfect for all occasions from work, holiday, casual with trainers or evening with heels. They're in my opinion, an essential. 

I hope you liked today's instalment and  I'm looking forward to bringing you more key pieces for your spring wardrobe!

  1. I LOVE those trousers. I have only one pair of wide leg trousers and I really need to get some more - they are so chic and comfy. Unfortunately, there aren't a lot of good plus-size options here in Finland, and ordering trousers online is always a bit of a gamble.

    Anyway, you look awesome! I really like the blond hair on you! :) xx
