This has been a fantastic challenge. I've done 30 for 30 before, but only having 15 items to chose from (see them here) was definitely much more of a challenge. I had to plan for meetings, nights out after work and try to ensure I used all 15 of my items, and I'm really proud of the results. Workwear can be really tricky and it can also be really dull. This challenge really pushed me to experiment with what I already had instead of panic-buying new pieces for work. I really hope these outfits help other people like me who have just started their first "grown up job" after university and don't have a clue how to dress for the office. I was really getting stuck in a rut wearing the same outfits every week so I really appreciate how much I've learned from this challenge. I've definitely put together some combinations I don't think I would have tried otherwise!
Plus I also managed to take photos every day! I mean, they're not my best photos but I did manage to do it everyday. Which means I don't have any excuses not to take outfit photos during the week!
Now my next workwear challenge- summer. As I started working in November, I've only really known dark colours, black tights and layers, so this is going to be a real challenge. Despite what I said about using what I have, I am going to do a little bit of summer workwear shopping but hey, maybe I'll do another one of these challenges later in the new season! (Speaking of which, I also stuck to my shopping ban for the 3 weeks of the challenge! The only thing I bought was a new top for working out, but nothing for everyday dressing! I'm pretty proud of that! I'm just holding out til payday on Friday!)
I really hope you've enjoyed this workwear challenge. I've had a post planned for ages on workwear tips that I am hoping to get up soon. Do you have any questions about outfit challenges or workwear? Let me know in the comments.
Are there any other challenges you'd like to see me do?

  3. I agree that dressing for work in the summer is tough. I'm realizing that my closet is 90% sweaters and cardigans - I need to do some shopping too!

  4. Thank you so much for posting this. I start my graduate job on Monday and have no idea what to wear. I loved how you styled the black tesco dress with a shirt underneath! Lovely. x

  5. That's exactly what it's for! Good luck in your new job!

    Also, I think they might still have that dress on the site! I wear it all the time because it's so perfect for layering under and over!

  8. Marks and Spencer's! I wear them nearly every day for work. So comfy!
    They run a bit big (I'm normally a 6 but I have a 5.5 and they're a bit big) but they're not too high and perfect for work. I've had them nearly a year so they might not still be available but definitely check them out for not-too-high heels!
