Lately I have been working lots, which I have been enjoying. I really do love my job. This week I have a few days off but then for the next 2 weeks I will be working full time at the library, which will be good experience for me. However, it also conjures up the work wear conundrum. The only rule in our library is that we can't wear jeans, but as I'm training to be a librarian and always want to make a good impression, I try to dress a bit smarter than what I could get away with really. Working a few days a week gives me the chance to catch up on washing my essentials, but I think I may have to invest in another blouse and another black skirt. However, I am so fussy when it comes to work skirts! It has to be not too tight, not too long, good quality and go with everything else in my wardrobe. This skirt is from Next and is slightly too big for me, but is my work wear staple. Then I wear different blouses, colourful cardigans and different tights, in order to jazz up the basics. In the first outfit, my blouse is from h&m and I really like it. It's slightly see through, but the pretty bow on it makes up for it. Do you like my polka dot cardigan in the 2nd outfit? you might remember it from my polka dots post, and I managed to score it for £15 in the sale from Dorothy Perkins! It's really good quality and makes a plain boring work outfit a bit more exciting.
What do you all wear for work? Personally, I love dressing smart, although it is difficult to find things that aren't too boring. I am thankful we don't have a uniform though!
