Disclaimer: It’s currently gone 11pm and I’m exhausted. However, because I love you guys and love my style, I’m determined to share this outfit with you.
So I may have fallen for the sports luxe trend. However, I definitely fell for it after it stopped being catwalk worthy. Does that make me a trend follower or someone willing to break the rules? I’m really not sure.
What I can guarantee is that I felt spectacularly overdressed in this at work. We’re a fairly laid back bunch and jeans feature in most people’s outfits daily. So a black pencil skirt and white shirt was somewhat over the top, even though I had a meeting. I even wore my patent black pumps, complete with a little bow on each shoe. I had to find a way of dressing down and getting back to being me.
Let me introduce the trainer. Okay, I’m a lot late for this shoe trend but normally I relegate my trainers to the gym. I made an exception this time around and absolutely loved the results. It’s a bit of an odd match, not least because the pink on the trainers seriously clashes with my red jacket (charity find! Whoop!), but it felt so quirky in a totally grown up way. There was some disbelief that the skirt came from Lipsy though.
Unfortunately, my attempt at quirky overdressing only lasted one day. Today I spent in jeans and a jumper. Why? Because I can and because I’m tired. So on that note, I’m off to bed. See you on the morrow.
Don’t forget to let me know what you think of the outfit in the comments below.
