For the first time since I started working, I actually had time to take photos before work. Yay! I'm so glad I managed to do it, because it proved it actually is possible. Plus it gives me a chance to show you the kind of thing I wear to work. A few people were asking me to post pictures of my work outfits, and it was something I really wanted to do, mainly because I didn't really know what to wear when I first started working! Now I've been working for 3 weeks I'm really starting to pick up what is appropriate to wear to work and I've been branching out a bit with dressing a little less formal (I wore polka dot trousers on Friday, albeit toned down with a white shirt and a blazer!). As I've mentioned before, I work for a digital design agency and I work with graphic designers and developers, so it's only me who needs to dress up all fancy for work, so I don't really have anyone to use as a comparison so I have to just pick it up as I go along!

My work outfit have become a kind of uniform- I wear these shoes and this jacket pretty much everyday. Well actually, not these exact shoes- I've started wearing boots to work because I have to walk 15 minutes from the station and my feet are getting freezing so I leave my heels at work. Luckily my Mum has the exact same shoes so I borrowed them from her for these photos! The rest of my outfit is usually comprised of a shirt and a pencil skirt. Now I have my "work wardrobe" organised it's so easy to just pull something out in the morning and throw it on!

I also don't normally look quite some "done" for work- my hair is usually down or in a bun and my makeup is usually quite simple, but it's my graduation on Friday so I'm practicing getting my hair and makeup just right for the big day!
I hope you're having a lovely week. I'm sure I'll be back at the weekend to tell you all about my graduation!

  1. Wow you look so fancy! Very chic! I'm actually dreading the day I have to go work in an office, I would feel so limited in my fashion choices :/ I'm glad I can still do a little crazy fashionwise while I'm still studying :) But as I said, you look fabulous! You can still do a lot with pencil skirts and jackets, would florals and polka dots still be acceptable at work? :D Btw I think if you wear trousers they could still be dressed up with some red lipstick or something, works every time for me anyway! Can't wait to see more of your work outfits! x

  2. I love how chic you look but also look so comfortable! It's such a hard balance, I kind of miss working in a real office though. I am sure that I won't be saying that after I graduate next year.

  3. You look AMAZING Charlotte! So professional and chic! I so badly wish I could wear heels at school but we have chapel every other day up a hill of 100 stairs and hills everywhere, plus I manage to walk into desks and trip over while I'm teaching even without heels haha! I've ordered some small ones though so hopefully I'll be better in those!

    But anyway, that skirt is so fantastic - Primark?! Cannot believe it!

  5. You look so fashionably business chic! At my agency, we mostly wear jeans .... so I'm a little jealous! If I dressed like this to work I would never hear the end of it.
