Style: Deep Tones

Do you sometimes find that you’ll catch a glimpse of yourself in the mirror, and think, how did I forget to make an effort? You
might not, but I sometimes do.  

With life happily going a long, if I
have burnt the candle at both ends I can often feel tired, drained and have a
severe decreased energy to make the effort.  This lack of motivation can
reflect in what I wear on a daily basis in the work place.  Last week I hadn’t stopped, untill I saw myself in the mirror and gave myself a slap.  I was looking pretty terrible, so I made sure my alarm was set that bit earlier each day, to give me no excuse to make the effort in my style.

I decided to indulge in this seasons Burgundy tones, in the form of Topshop Longsleeve Bib Tie Blouse – £36.00.  To be honest I originally struggled with what to wear it with, as wearing this style of blouse with trousers looks too harsh on me.  My personal style is very feminine so wearing this with trousers looked too much, so I went for a classic waist hugging pencil skirt from Prodigy Red.   

What I’m Wearing: Blouse – Topshop Longsleeve Bib Blouse – £36.00, Skirt – Pencil ProdigyRed, Heels – Topshop

I know the shoes are from a few seasons ago, but I honestly still adore my Topshop patent platforms, the cheeky purple tones really work well with the blouse…. plus give me a nice height!

                                         Another new look for me….What do you think?

    You look very sharp indeed here! I know what you mean about having to get up earlier to look half decent.. I usually prefer the extra 15 minutes in bed to applying liquid eyeliner, but am kicking myself later in the day when I don't look so great.

    Hey cutie – another way you could wear this is with a flippy skater style skirt, girly and a little more casual, ballet pumps and slouchy bag for day, shoe boots and oversized clutch for night 🙂

    Ps – you look great in this outfit btw 🙂
