a week of work wears.....

I'm currently interning with the fashion department at The Daily Express and so I thought it apt to show y'all a week of my typical work wears. Having previously come from the world of acting and touring, where I mostly dressed for warmth and comfort it has been rather refreshing having to dress, shall we say 'nicely', for work days.

So long triple layers. Hello heels!


For my own and others safety I stay within the limits of a cuban heel.

I try to keep things reasonably smart although I did succumb to a pair of jeggings - I was assisting on a shoot and wanted to be totally comfortable. The jeggings (God I hate that term!) are actually a pair I picked up in the Gap sale and I couldn't love them more - they are Gap '1969' beauties, wonderfully indigo and go with just about most things in my wardrobe. On that particular day I teamed them with another sale bargain from Cos (I heart that store too much), namely the wide neck brown and black number as can be seen in on Thursday.

I digress.

Here then, is a week of wears. Make of it what you will. Pardon the lack of eye contact, I 'm not terribly comfortable striking a pose, as I may have told you once or twice before.

Also, I lost track of the days so I'm not sure the order is entirely accurate - Tuesday may very well have been worn on Friday etc. but you get the jist;)

Oh yes, and I must add, I have to dress for comfort, as I never know what I may be doing in the day so you'll notice a practicality theme running throughout the outfits.
