What I wore to work this week #25

Once again it was a week of two halves. It started out roasting hot and then cooled down considerably as the week went on. I definitely preferred the cooler half, even though it rained and I am hoping the cooler weather sticks around a bit.

What I wore to work this week #24

This was a week of two halves temperature wise. Monday and Tuesday were cool and a bit rainy and then suddenly midweek the heatwave came back and it looks like it’s here to stay until the middle of next week. I was rather enjoying the cooler weather. I even managed to wear some trousers!

What I wore to work this week #23

This week was roasting hot once again. I am continuing to work from home two days a week so I only have three outfits. I also travelled to Leeds for work on Tuesday so I have weird hotel room pictures again. Praying for slightly cooler weather next week.

What I wore to work this week #22

This week my team moved floors within our office. We’ve been taking up more space than we should have been and have been relegated to a smaller group of desks. This has had two consequences for me. The first is that the floor I am now based on does not have a selfie mirror so I have to sneak up to the floor I used to be on for photos. The second is that there are not enough desks for all of us to come in 4 or 5 days a week so it’s now likely I will be working from home twice a week on most weeks, which means one less outfit.

What I wore to work this week #20

This week has been an absolute scorcher in London. In many places in the world temperatures in the upper 20’s wouldn’t be considered a heatwave but in the UK that definitely counts as high summer. I can’t stand being hot so I made sure I dressed accordingly. It was a great excuse to get my shorts out! I did make an effort to be a bit more conservative on Monday because I was invited to a “new starter breakfast” by our director from work at one of Gordon Ramsay’s restaurants so I wanted to make sure I looked the part.

Things I wore to work this week #19

Another week of in between weather, which is driving me nuts. It’s so hard to know what to wear in the morning. I know everyone is going to suggest layers but I hate layers. I can’t stand wearing clothes on top of clothes on top of clothes. In other news, my stress about not getting on with people at work is slowly abating and things are getting better. Unfortunately my hay fever is getting worse and worse no matter what I take so in all my pictures I look a bit wonky and by Thursday I couldn’t be bothered anymore and decided to go super comfy.

Things I wore to work this week #18

It was a bit of a week of two halves in terms of weather so I started more covered up and then as it warmed up I needed cooler outfits. I am not the best at summer. I am just a ball of hayfever, sweat and spots. The hot weather always makes me a bit grumpy… that and the fact that although the work is really interesting in my new job I am struggling to make friends and some people really don’t seem to like me. Let’s hope next week is better.

Things I wore to work this week #17

Only two outfits this week. Monday was a bank holiday so I didn’t go to work and on Wednesday I was in the Leeds office, which does not have a god bathroom selfie mirror… and I am back to working from home on Fridays. The weather has been quite nice but still a bit unpredictable so I have been looking for outfits that work well for in-between weather and also with the fact that it’s a lot colder when I leave the house at 7am than when I get home at 6pm.

Things I wore to work recently: highlights

It’s been three weeks since I posted one of these and it seems a bit much trying to go back and post everything I wore in that time so I have picked five highlights. As you’ll see the weather has been somewhat up and down in that time. Those of you who might have wondered, I did manage to find selfie mirror at my new office, although I am not completely sold on the lighting and there are definitely more women to use the bathroom so I have to pick my moments wisely.

What I wore to work this week #16

This might be the last what I wore to work this week. This is my last few days in my current job before I start a new job next week. I am not sure what the bathroom situation is going to be like and whether I will be able to take pictures. I guess we’ll see.

What I wore to work this week #15

This has definitely been a week of two halves. On Monday it was still pretty chilly, Tuesday was middling and then we got hit with full summer! I don’t think I adjusted fast enough and by Wednesday afternoon I was BOILING. I also look a bit bedraggled since the warmer weather has meant my hayfever is in full force and I can’t stop sneezing!

After we were briefly led to believe spring might be coming when it warmed up on Saturday, we were soon proved very wrong. Winter came back full off mist and drizzle this week, which is reflected in the outfits I wore on the three days I went into work as well as the wildness of my hair. Please join me in wishing for better weather as I am getting sick of my winter clothes.

What I wore to work this week #13

Another week of really changeable weather, varying between massive rain showers and sunshine but then also rather a lot of wind. I am sure in past years by April I had downgraded from a coat to a jacket but I am not sure that is happening any time in the near future here. Sigh. Read more…

Another week of random weather. I am starting to think it might never be spring. I swear by this time last year I had moved from full coat to jacket already but I am still in a big coat. Let’s hope April brings some better weather!ย  Read more…

What I wore to work this week #10

Over the weekend I watched an episode ofย America’s Next Top Model where Tyra Banks gave some tips on how to take better mirror selfies. One of her suggestions was to drop your phone down when you want to show the whole outfit from the side. I decided to give it a go this week… and I am not sure about the results. My Instagram followers weren’t sure either and I got mixed reviews. What do you guys think?

What I wore to work this week #7

This week was absolutely freezing at the beginning so I was extremely grateful for the new boots I bought last week. My knee-high boots broke at the zip and they were on their last legs so I was lucky to bag a bargain in the sales. Happy days! Read more…

What I wore to work this week #6

This week I actually went into my normal office for four days in a row for the first time in six weeks, which seems mad. So this time there are four outfits. It was freezing during the week so I had to try and balance out style and warmth. I am not sure I succeeded!

What I wore to work last week #2

Last week was a bit of an odd one for me. I only actually went to my office two days of the week as I had to travel to Berlin for my annual work conference. I was nominated to present on stage in front of over 2,000 people so I had to spend a day in rehearsals before the actual big day of speaking. This was followed by an evening event where we all got very dressed up… so I have cheated a little and included my evening outfit in this week’s work looks. I mean I didย technically wear it to work.ย  Read more…

What I wore to work this week #1

So after a pretty positive reception I have decided to crack on with a weekly “what I wore to work” post. I only physically go in to work 4 days a week and for the rest of the time I live in jeans and sweatshirts so there will usually be 4 outfits a week. This week there are 3 as Monday was a bank holiday. Photos are from my Instagram stories and are taken in the work bathroom, so don’t expect amazing quality.

Where possible I will link to where you can buy what I am wearing (or similar) but some of my wardrobe has been around for some time so lots of things probably aren’t on sale anymore.
