I tend to keep my professional job separate from my blogging life, but I’ve been fairly open with the fact that my job requires a professional qualification, and I work in the bustling city of London. But sometimes I really need some Get To Work Glam inspiration. I love looking at inspiration for get to work glam, and I also love dressing up in smart clothes that I can pair together with some heels.
The first in the series for Fashion Files, is Get To Work Glam. What do you think of this chic look for the office?
❤ River Island Cream pussybow blouse RRP £15 I love the semi-sheer crepe fabric of this blouse, it’s adds a hint of sexy to the office look without being so over the top. The V neck with pussy-bow and horizontal lines, elongates the figure whilst adding a hint of style.
❤ River Island Grey jersey cold shoulder peplum top RRP £20 The directional spin on the peplum top adds a contemporary style to this top, and the slate grey makes it a safe bet for the office without needing to opt for black. The white side panels also adds some detail to the peplum.
❤ Max Studio Ponte Leggings, Black RRP £35 I LOVE wearing leggings to work, you can get some that look exactly like trousers in the form of treggings. It adds a perfect female silhouette and is great with these tops that are longer than the standard top. John Lewis are also doing a 50% off womenswear deal which you can access here.
❤ Zara Flat Shoes With Ankle Strap RRP £32 Zara do have amazing shoes, and they are such good value and quality. These shoes will look perfect with skinny leggings – due to the detailing. It’s always better to wear leggings or skinny trousers with shoes like this as they shouldn’t over hang over the detail of the shoe.
❤ Topshop All Rose Watch RRP £82 Rose Gold is so in at the moment, there’s really no point spending 100’s of pounds on a Micheal Kors watch if you are going to switch it up with accessories every so often. As the tops are sleeveless, use this as a statement piece.
❤ Topshop Large Tote Bag RRP £32 A simple black tote bag can’t go work with any outfit for work; and obviously it needs to be over-sized. Over-sized bags like this one with the pouch inside it are perfect for keeping your phone, keys etc safe.
❤ Naked Eyeshadow Palette RRP £35 This is the eye-shadow palette that everyone has been raving about; unfortunately, I don’t own any of the Naked palettes, which needs to change – and fairly soon. Keep it neutral for the professional look with the gold-hued eyeshadow shades, and add a bit of shimmer for the evenings.
❤ Nars Audacious Lipstick Jeanne Cherry Red RRP £24 As I’ve said in a previous post, you either focus on the eyes or lips. With this power colour, by none other than Nars, it’s enough to give the confidence to stand out and be bold. Nars lipsticks are so long lasting that even a single stroke can last all day, and provide full coverage.
❤ There’s No Fun Like Work notebook RRP £12 I needed to make going to work just a little bit fun! Carry around this note-book in your tote to remind you that work isn’t all that bad. We can always scribble some blog posts on the go.
I was lucky enough to be sent these flip flops from Ipanema in Beach Black. The brand are well known for their gorgeous flip flops, and have also collabed with Gisele Bündchen.
I was actually really excited when I received this, as not only is it British Summertime, but also I have been needing some new flip flops for a very long time now. The recent pair I had saw it’s last days on holiday in Egypt and with so many different styles and brands out there, I didn’t want to settle on something that was not going to fit it’s purpose. I think it’s fairly safe to say by now, that my last pair did not last the entire Egypt trip!
