What I've been Wearing | Style

AD - Gifted Product where indicated
Back with an outfit update and it co-incided with some of the lovely weather we had recently. Bare legs all round - definitely not the case this weekend!
The first outfit was a work outfit that I turned to a casual one with the addition of trainers. The orange blouse is from Warehouse and I bought it after my recent personal shopping session with Katherin in Victoria Square. Just adore the colour...
Biker Jacket - Topshop via eBay
Culottes - Warehouse (past season)
Trainers - Nike (current) - wearing a men's size 6
Bag - Hush (AW18 sample sale)

More culottes and more trainers...this time slip on ones that I snapped up in the Honey Lisburn Road sale. They're from the Kendall & Kylie range that despite the connection (I'm not a big Karsashian fan, can you tell?!), are actually super stylish and really well made. They retail at the higher end of the price point so it was a bonus to find them on the sale rail for less than £50.
The t-shirt and scarf are from River Island but the menswear section! I was hanging around while the teenager tried on some hoodies and came across both. It's hard to find a gorgeous scarf with khaki in it but this is it - and a bargain to boot!
Culottes - preloved Part Two
Handbag - hush as before

Another casual outfit using the Kendall & Kylie trainers from above and a pleather skirt from M&S that I found in DejaVu recently.
Skirt & jacket - preloved
Shoes - as before
Scarf - hush (AW18 sale)

Back to workwear and this dress is from a couple of seasons ago at H&M. It's got a heron print all over with yellow detail so my Marc O'Polo scarf works well with it.
Dress - H&M
Biker - Topshop via eBay
Boots - Seven Boot Lane (AW17) GIFT
Scarf - Marc O'Polo (AW18)

Night out now with the girls and it was a casual and walkable one so I wore my new Holly trainers from M&S along with some wardrobe favourites.
Jeans - MiH (preloved)
Bag - Boden

In a dress next and this was the day the weather turned...I was freezing in this outfit and it quickly escalated to soaked and freezing. But I loved it and I'll always happily suffer for my style!
Jacket, Bag & Trainers - as before
Dress - M&S (AW18) GIFT

Back to work now and I went for classic stripes with some gorgeous navy trousers I got in the Harrison sale the other week. I'd tried them on in black a few months ago in Jude Law Boutique in Magherafelt and regretted not buying them but I think I prefer them in navy. Navy trousers can look a bit frumpy sometimes but not these - they have a cute frill running down the side and are cut in an on-trend jogging trouser style. 
Breton Top - M&S (affiliate link)
Trousers - Great Plains
Boots - as before

Finishing with a final work look - it looks casual but once I've the biker jacket off, the fine knit is very much work appropriate (I work in a business casual environment which works out quite flexible for women, I'm finding). I adore this skirt - a complete find in DejaVu on the Lisburn Road a few weeks ago. I seem to be unable to go in there without buying...
Skirt - M&S from DejaVu
Jacket, Scarf, Boots - all as before.

And there's my fortnightly update done for another fortnight. It's kind of scary how quickly these posts come around. Where are the weeks going?

I've not much to share in terms of a life lately piece. Work has been much busier as the project I'm working on has lots of deadlines and decisions coming up so I've been working 4 days instead of my usual 3. That leaves less time for my other bits and pieces I do from home (social media for a couple of other small businesses/blog projects) and I'm not exaggerating when I say my house is a tip. I'm going to dedicate some time to getting it back in order this Saturday, motivated by the fact that I'm away on Sunday morning to an event and an overnight stay in a hotel. I'm really looking forward to some downtime with one of my friends but as you all know, this comes at a price for a mum....cue much cooking and laundry right up until I leave on Sunday! 
You can see the action as it happens (from the event, not my house cleaning!) over on Instagram, including the wearing of my new Phase Eight dress!

Have a lovely weekend and I'll be back soon!
