1. Co-Ord O'Clock
Matchy-matchy isn't my usual style but I loved this set the instant I tried it - I went up one size for a looser fit and because body-con and office isn't a good combination. This outfit is smart enough for the conservative office environment I work in but the optical-illusion-esque stripes make it fun enough to wear out after work, too. Worn with trusty black Louboutins in the office and far more practical Nike Frees out of the office.
2. Print Clash
Yes, I'm wearing trousers. I still can't really get used to wearing trousers but this pair (purchased from an Old Navy store in Shanghai during a brief torrential downpour) deserved a third outing. Sticking to a monochrome palette but with different prints hopefully didn't give everyone who looked at me a headache...
3. Spots and Stripes
Letting the skirt take centre stage with an old favourite black H&M top and a vintage belt. I'm only 5'1 and always thought that pencil skirts were on the long list of things-that-look-terrible-on-me but I've found that when they are high-waisted and not so long that I can only take baby steps they're actually a great choice for those of us who are not blessed with long legs.
