As I will be mixing with colleagues from abroad who work in a less formal office many, I'm guessing, will be in casual gear. Let's hope so as I have decided to abandon my office skirts this week. No, its not a new trend I've come across, 'pantyhose the look.' I mean I'm intending to wear casual skinny jeggings and jeans with my blouses and jackets. It's a rare opportunity to try out some alternative looks. Generally work wear and casual wear do not meet, in my world.
For instance this is a typical office look for me.
This coming week I am going to wear a navy military jacket with olive jeans and a work blouse,
A work blouse in cream with black skinny jeans and a black jacket
One day I will have a touch of the vapours and wear a work blouse, with a work 'Vaporous Grey' jacket and burgundy jeggings.
Thursday is black jeggings again and, I've forgotten what. It's the vapours, they've hit me badly.
Moving to Friday, it will be normal denim jeans, a grey jacket and white shirt with a layered bracelets.
If you want to see how well this goes then you can find me on Instagram as mutton_style. I hope to post outfits daily. I haven't tried them on together yet. Any one of these may fail once they are on and just look bad for some reason or other.
By the way, Sainsbury's have skinny burgundy jeans in stock.
Talking of shopping, we did as I just pointed out the jeans in Sainsburys, I noticed as I was putting together my work outfits that I had a serious lack of navy skinny jeggings other than denim. As I have some money from my parents and uncle from Christmas unspent I corrected that lack. I bought a pair from M&S on Sunday.
