What I wore to work this week #37

I had a bit of an interesting week outfit wise. I really liked my outfit on Monday but then a random man that I often see in Starbucks told me I looked pregnant. Hmmm. Anyway, I liked it and all the rest of my clothes for the week and enjoyed my birthday week at work!

What I wore to work this week #35

After spending the weekend in Lisbon in shorts and t-shirts it was a bit of a shock to the system to be back in England and really chilly. I had a really busy week at work with a fair bit of trekking around to different sites for workshops. It has reminded me that I need to buy some new comfy winter boots!

The weather continues to be strange and unpredictable. It was freezing on Monday and then warmed up massively for the rest of the week… although I think I dressed more optimistically than most. I think it’s time to accept that Thursday was my last tights-free outfit for a while.

This week started off really cold and then warmed up and now it’s cold again. There are only two outfits this week as I had a team day out on Thursday. Both outfits are on the colder end of the week and it’s hard to believe that on Thursday I was in a t-shirt!

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 #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.

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!

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…

What I wore to work this week #12

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 #11

Only three outfits this week as I was only in the office for three days. It was a bit of a week of two halves. Monday was freezing after the weekend of snow and then it progressively warmed up during the week. I wasn’t really expecting to be wearing Uggs in March and I can’t even put them away yet as it’s supposed to snowย again next weekend. Like my final picture says, I dream of wearing an outfit with no tights!

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 #9

There was no “What I wore to work” post last week because I never actually physically made it into the office. I spent the first two days of the week in our Dusseldorf office (which was nice because they have an in-house barista and unlimited coffee). Then it snowed like the end of days and I wasn’t actually able to travel to work for the rest of the week and spent my time in front of my laptop in sweatpants #sorrynotsorry. This week, however, the freeze has lifted, the sun is out and I am back at my desk… although somewhat grumpy about the fact that my fringe has grown like a weed and I look like a shaggy dog.

What I wore to work this week #8

This week had been miserable and pretty cold again. I am normally a winter fan, but even I am looking forward to when the weather is a bit warmer and I can actually wear a dress or skirtย without tights. In the meantime though I am still trying to balance fashion with not freezing my arse off.
