Luckily I don’t have to wear a uniform but I do have to wear smart/casual. I tend to stick to black trousers and a plain, darkly-coloured top; mostly because I have a bad habit of throwing coffee, soup or chocolate down anything vaguely resembling a colour lighter than black. Then all of a sudden, oh hi meeting with important people I’d forgotten about. Yes, that is a coffee stain in the shape of a boat. Thanks for noticing.
I have a fetching array of jumpers; navy blue, black, grey but to be honest, it gets a little bit boring. So I brighten up my work outfit with scarves. Because there are no rules about wearing scarves and I don’t work with paper shredders, because you know, health and safety. And you can wear them in a lot of different ways; although I only know how to do two of them!
I’ve been wearing this pink dragonfly scarf a lot recently, not only because it feels really light and, as the weather’s getting warmer, I don’t want to boil at work, but also because it’s bloody gorgeous! It makes me think of spring and happy things 🙂 The only downside is, everyone in the office has been eyeing it up, so I have to keep it safe when I take it off to eat lunch 😉
The scarf is from Lylia Rose* who have a wide array of women’s printed scarves and other gorgeous fashion and home accessories.
