And as the weeks have gone by in my job, the dress code is becoming increasingly dictated by weather. The office is quite cold - it's an old building that used to be farm outbuildings so layers are essential. I'm thinking my smarter knitwear collection will grow this winter. In fact, I've already ordered some cashmere!
Here's what I've been wearing, starting with this sleeveless coat that I've ummm'd and ahhh'd about for a while in terms of wearability. But I think I've cracked it with this layered look using a grey v-neck knit and a white top. So pleased about being able to wear this scarf again - as you'll see a bit further down...
Black Coated Skinny Jeans - Topshop Joni
Black Boots - Dune Black Range
Another blanket scarf got a debut too - this one's from Fat Face last season
Navy Boiled Wool Coat - TK Maxx - similar here
and the New Balance trainers from this post have been well and truly brought on board. I'm so pleased with them though be warned if you buy them also from Foot Locker stores as they don't do refunds, only exchanges
Coat - Gerard Darel (past season) - similar here
Cashmere Knit - TK Maxx
Jeans - Kings of Indigo via TK Maxx
Blanket Scarf - Preloved
and that scarf again from Miss Selfridge, worn with my heavier camel coat this time
Grey Roll Neck - Boden (past season)
And I've been running too - taking part in my 3rd 10k this year. It was a slow and steady performance and there was no PB but I was happy to have completed without stopping. Great course down at Titanic and well organised. I'm thinking about doing the next runher in Dungannon now....
This photo was taken at the start.....obviously
Leggings - Ilu Fitwear - seriously the BEST leggings. Stay up, look amazing and fit like a dream. And they've survived ENDLESS washing and tumble drying.
