In the Navy

I’m known as “the cardigan lady” to many people who see me on a daily basis; I’m rarely spotted without one on my person, being a chilly being by nature I find them essential and more comfortable to wear than blazers or a jumper. I’ve been on the lookout for a navy blue one to add to my collection for a while now without much luck, I suppose it’s the wrong time of year, that and most of the ones in the shops are so either paper thin or cropped. The lovely people at Damart very kindly sent me a parcel of goodies from their new season collection then other week and in among it was THE navy blue cardigan I’ve been looking for (along with some other bits that will feature on the blog soon).

Cardigan c/o Damart | Dress c/o Laura Ashley | Boots: Jeffrey Campbell

The combination of the cardigan, plus this navy and orange striped dress that Laura Ashley sent me last year made for the perfect office wear (we have quite a relaxed dress code). I added these much neglected orange boots and some rose gold jewellery from Lola & Grace to finish the look.
I always struggle when it comes to dressing for work, I never used to but I seem to have outgrown all of my smarter clothes and seemingly never got round to replacing them. I do own a few smart pieces but I never know how to style them to make them work friendly, I do a lot more clinical work now which involves uniform so I haven’t spent much time/effort on what to wear on office days! Suddenly everything feels too short, and I really don’t get on well with pencil skirts, which tend to be a better length as they are super un-flattering on me! Time to hit up H&M and Primark I think!
Happy Friday everyone, I hope you have a great weekend planned!

  4. The colour of your cardigan from Damart coordinates nicely with the blue detail at the waist and hem of your pretty zig-zag print dress from Laura Ashley. I like your confident facial expressions and your poses showcasing the outfit. The fourth photo is my favourite of the five.

  5. Very cute! I love the dress!
