What to Wear to Work: Wednesday

My absolute favourite working outfit, I'm mad about anything high waisted and I'm absolutely in love with these high waisted trousers from H&M. I love that they have a line of satin on the back and side pockets. I have paired the trousers up with a dusty pink shirt, same as the one I wore on Monday and suede heels. Let's just hope it does rain!

What to Wear to Work: Tuesday

Yay! I've made it through day one of my new job, so here's my day 2 look of what I'm wearing to work this week. I absolutely adore this dress and I'm so glad I brought it. I love the pretty French style and it is nicely fitted around the waist. I've decided to leave it simple and not dress it up with too much jewellery.

What to Wear to Work: Monday

Hey My Lovelies,

I'm pretty excited today as it's my first day of a new job! It's always a bit nerve-wrecking going into a new environment, with new people, not knowing what the work culture will be like... But I've been feeling really ready for a change.

Anyway, with starting a new job, I always think about what I'm going to wear for my first day. It can be tough when you don't know what the dress code is. So throughout this week, I'll post pre-planned ideas on what I chose to wear for my first week on the job. Hopefully, it will give you a little inspiration if you are not sure what to wear for a upcoming job interview or if you're starting a new job soon. Hope you like!

I love this outfit as it's smart and professional, it's the typical working girl look. It is good especially if you don't know what the dress code is like. This little black blazer is my favourite and doesn't look too heavy, which blazers can sometimes do to me as I'm quite petite.

I'm really picky when it comes to shirts, as I can often feel restricted in them. I like going for silk shirts, but they can be very expensive. I found this shirt in H&M and the material is so soft on the skin, they come in a variety of colours too!

I've decided to make these my official work shoes! I realised that I don't actually own a pair of simple plain black heels. I found these on sale in Dorothy Perkins and they only had one left in my size, so I had to grab them up quick! Usually I don't like pointed shoes as I feel they make my feet look big lol, but I think these are quite flattering.

I'll be posting another "What to Wear to Work" entry tomorrow, so stay tuned :)

Hey My Lovelies,
A little outfit shot for you here, before going out into Central London.
These are my most favourite shoes I own at the moment and I cannot stop looking at them. I love the edgy heel, it's almost a wedge, but not quite there lol.

I also fell in love with these soft trousers, high waisted of course.

Have A Good Bank Holiday!

Bristol: Day 3 - Tea & Live Music

OUTFIT: Crop Top - New Look | Jeans - Primark | Sandals - H & M | Chain - Primark

Our last day in Bristol was the best, the sun was finally out, which meant that I could put the big coat away and get my sandals on. On our last day we decided to go for a bit of shopping and to Bristol Museum & Art Gallery. 

We took a lovely stroll through this pretty little park. The area really made me feel like I was walking through the 50's or 60's era, with the houses that squared off the park and there were so many classic cars around.

We stopped off at a little tea shop called "The Tea Birds". I love anything vintage, so I was so excited to go inside for a cup of tea and cake. It was very cute inside and played 20's music, which added to the theme. The tea was delicious, I cannot remember what tea I had but it was a herbal fruit fusion. I also had a Rocky Road, which was so good. 

Caught red handed looking at shoes!

In the evening, Elliot found this beautiful boat restaurant whilst searching for places to eat online. But the place is so popular, you need to book way in advance, so unfortunately we couldn't eat in. But we decided to get a drink at the bar and just enjoy the amazing view.

After, we went to listen to some live music at a place called "The Lanes". Its a bar with a 50's American style theme to it, with bowling and karaoke. It was really casual and laidback, which I really enjoyed. It was great to just chill out and listen to some live music.

Bristol: Day 2 - Decks & Dots

Saturday I woke up so early, even though I promised myself a lie in. I was just too excited to get out of the hotel and do some crazy sightseeing around Bristol. Although it was chilly (hence the big coat), I wore this outfit. I was surprised I was able to put something like this together as I packed in a rush and forgot pretty much the essentials! You may have gathered from previous posts that I am a lover of high waist pants and I love these shorts, which I've had for yonks. But I love it more with this blue polka dot shirt, I got this recently from New Look and thought it was adorable. I like the wide short sleeves.

This beautiful cathedral was opposite our hotel, so we decided to pop inside for a look around. It was very impressive, with the amazing high ceilings and grand interior.
If you ever visit Bristol, I'll say to do the Brunel's ss Great Britain attraction. It's amazing how they've done it. You are able to go under water and see the ship from all angles. You can go inside the ship, see how it all works, read up on the history and even climb the ropes! It was an amazing experience.

We saw some cool stencil art work... not sure if these are Banksy's work though. I wanted to go on the Banksy walking tour to find all of his work, but unfortunately we did not have time. But we would definitely do it next time.
