What I Wore – My Week in Outfits #1

My week of outfits.

It’s been a while since I’ve put up an outfit post. I take #ootd photos almost every day for my Instagram though so thought I would try making a blog post out of them for a change.

After a lot of walking in Manchester last weekend left my feet pretty much destroyed! I was seriously concerned I wouldn’t be able to find any shoes I could walk in for work last week! A pit stop in Livingston to hit the Nike outlet store on the way home allowed me to pick up a pair of trainers that were super comfy. And ones that I also thought I could style up for work appropriate outfits.

I really love these black and white gingham trousers, they were definitely a great purchase. The light blue shirt is from Peacocks. A nice pop of colour next to the black and white.

Tuesday

Culottes are the perfect summer workwear. I’m not quite ready to get my milk bottle white pins out just yet. These show just enough leg to be summery without blinding everyone as the sun reflects off them! Teamed with a simple white tee, a statement necklace and my trusty leather jacket.

Wednesday

Wednesdays mean pink right?! I wore my culottes for a second day again with a pretty simple top – ruffles and stripes. Winning┬ácombo as far as I’m concerned. And of course, the aforementioned Nike trainers.

Thursday

Do you ever find a style you love so much you buy it in every colour you can? Yup, me too. I swapped my pink culottes for black ones. The shirt is from Primark last year, it’s lasted surprising well considering it was so cheap. A denim jacket is perfect for summer and thankfully my work isn’t too strict about dress code. You can’t see my feet, but I do have my trainers on!

Friday

Dress down Friday. I assume. I’ve never actually been told that at work, but also never been told it isn’t. So Friday means jeans. I recently got this biker jacket from New Look, another great addition to my summer wardrobe and it goes with everything. My feet are pretty much healed at this point but these trainers are so comfy… Definitely the sign of getting old!

Saturday

Dressing my age as always! We headed round to friends on Saturday night so obviously, I decided to wear my most grown-up clothes. I don’t dress my age but I really don’t care. Frilly socks make me smile! Our friends only live a five-minute walk away so I decided to risk it with my Vans and my feet survived!

 

I actually thought I’d find it pretty hard to style a whole week around a pair of shoes. These Nike trainers aren’t too sporty looking so they actually went ok with my work clothes. As a shoe addict, it was a bit hard sticking to only one pair for the whole week though!
