Nose to the Grindstone

I've hinted a couple of times, that I had something coming up. A week long special. Well IT'S HERE! Fashion Junkie goes to work.

Although I'm finishing up with my degree I also work in recruitment. It's something I've done for a couple of years and it works really well as the company I work for is a niche independant recruiter and thankfully it's reasonably relaxed in the office. No jeans, nothing too revealing and so long as it's semi-smart, it goes. This has been great as it means my work clothes have always had some crossover with the rest of my wardrobe.

Unfortunately I've never done much work during the winter, and our office is COLD, so none of my usual summer dresses, and packing to come home had to be fairly sparse. This got my little cogs a turning. What am I going to wear for work, can I do it without buying anything new specifically for it?

So here it goes- I'm back in the office almost full time this week, and everyday I'll be posting my outfit for work for you to rate or slate. Every outfit will be clothes I already own, none of them pre-purchased for work. Think I'm too safe? Too casual? Too smart? I want to know.

And a sneak preview- this is what I wore on Friday when it was cold, sleety and dark.

 Sweater Dress, H&M
Cardigan and Leggings, Primark

Pashmina (as scarf), Malaga Airport

Silver Ring, Local Jeweller
Gold Ring with green stone, Antique and a gift from my Grandmother.
