This is my very first outfit post, so please bear with me!
I happened upon a lovely little blog yesterday, which you can find right here. I was reading through LandGirl1980's dilemma around the office 'Dress Down Day' outfit. I love wearing my vintage suits to the office, but they can feel rather OVER dressed on occasion, so I tend to keep them for the important meetings and client visits. Instead, most of the time I wear a dress and cardi combo, and sometimes, just sometimes...trousers!
My Mum will tell you, I was always a tomboy when I was younger, and you'd physically have to pin me down to get me to wear a dress. Jeans were my life. But something changed a few years back. Now you will struggle to get me back into Jeans! I own just 2 pairs, and very few other trousers.
So when it comes to dress down day, everyone in the office cracks out the jeans and jogging bottoms. I tried a few times to do the whole jeans thing in the office, but it just made me feel like I was taking the dog out. I either look put together, or a total scruffbag, and I don't tend to let the general public see the latter unless it's totally unavoidable.
So what to wear for dress down day at the office?
Dress - Vintage, found in British Heart Foundation in Cheltenham
Cardi - Brighton Marina Boot Sale
Belt - Primark
Sunglasses - Betsy Johnson
Also took pictures of my hair. I bought the Vintage Hairstyling Book last summer, and so far have only got round to attempting a few, and this one is my usually quick go-to style when I've just curled my hair. I can't brush it out on the first morning after a set as it just goes MASSIVE otherwise, but I quite liker this one. I saw that Freelancer at Freelancer's Fashion Blog also used the same style from the book recently. Ok, her's has come out amazingly, mine a tad bit more scruffy! Maybe if I practised a bit more I could get it as gorgeous as hers :)
