Outfit

1098120_10151521409725950_1725722010_nI often find it interesting how some of my most unplanned outfits turn out to be the most popular.This is an outfit I put together early one morning before work and I received many compliments because of the unique colour. It's probably one of my favourites right now too. It's a wonderful dress for summer and can also be styled in a myriad of different ways for winter too. If I'm ever unsure about whether one of my dresses fits in with the workplace, I add a detailed black cardigan and this bag and pair of shoes which I specifically bought for full time work. I believe they add an element of professionalism to any outfit. This is the same cardigan that I have in duck egg blue which I posted here, here and here. I just had to buy it in both colours when it came on sale; the little pearls greatly transform any look. 

My life is very busy at the moment; I've been working a lot and staying back late. It feels great to be so productive and I value every opportunity to learn more about my job.It was a lovely weekend catching up with family and shopping. My sister just returned from a trip to Austria and bought me the sweetest little mirror which I adore. It's Empress Elisabeth of Austria, "Sisi!" I've been reading about her on the Internet, very interesting; I just love it when a piece has historical meaning too. I also bought some new makeup products (trying anything different is rather revolutionary for me); I am totally obsessed with blush right now!

Cute outfit :-)

Mabel said...

Oh I LOVE this!!!! I love the mix of textures and the print of the skirt and...everything!

It's good to be busy. I FINALLY got a new job and I started last week. It's at a library, but they have a strict dress code for some reason! I got busted for my shoes on my second day and I was so embarrassed! I'm having fun buying clothes that accommodate the dress code, though. I have to wear dress clothes, which is exciting because I'll get to wear dresses. Every other library I've worked at has had a dress code of jeans and a tshirt with the name of the library on it. I wish you could plan my work outfits for me! lol.

I love blush, too. I'm in the market for a new blush and I have no idea what to get. What are you using?
