From work to play

This was a 12(ish) hour and multi-purpose look which saw me through putting in the hard yards at the office (leather jacket off of course), to after work dinner and drinks to polish off the week.  My thoughts were predominantly in terms of being office ready and appropriate, but also being able to easily notch up the outfit to the next level for the after work fun and frivolities. Trust me, there's nothing like the trusty Balenciaga leather jacket to fall back on to make an outfit feel that little bit sexier. I hope you all have a great weekend!

  2. I can't help but envy your beautiful wardrobe! There's nothing better than having an outfit that works for work and play - makes planning to go out after work all that much easier.

    1. My wardrobe has finally come good. I actually culled it to the point of being bare a few years back and started fresh trying to buy more classic and mix and match pieces. It's far better because of it. Enjoy your weekend

  8. Oh Mandi. Did you stay in those shoes for 12 hours? If you did, I take my hat off to you. You must also be the most well dressed office worker I know.

    1. Ha ha... no even I wouldn't attempt that! I do keep flats at work for if I have to run around excessively and I generally slip my heels off for most of the day at my desk :)

  11. Well I'm just going to come out and say it, I'm glad you don't work in my office; between being jealous and constantly asking you "who is that by, where did you get it, are there more, would it be weird if I wore it too?" I would never get anything done. But seriously you look great.
