Recently I'm Wearing

Another week, Another 500 or so miles clocked up on the commuter trail. I'm looking forward to being stuck in the flat, on my own with the Gossip Girl DVD's I've just order, a stack of magazines, a well stocked Kindle and the rather nice looking sausages I've just unpacked from the shopping.

Another week with a few outfits for you too... the WIWT addiction continues...

A few cold wet days...

Primark T-shirt dress- the cheap version of THAT Topshop one, Primark tights, Draven flats, Nica handbag, Spanish pashmina scarf, Topshop ring
Topshop jumper, Primark denim leggings, Clarks flats, Ministry of Sound wristband, Ring a gift from my grandmother

A few less cold but still wet days...

Primark polka dot tights (ancient), Primark t-shirt dress as above
Topshop jumper, Primark denim leggings, Clarks flats, Nica handbag, Spanish pashmina scarf, H&M biker jacket

And when it's as cold and miserable as this, and you're exhausted and full of cold, and having to ponder what on earth to wear for a Skype interview....

Topshop Cat Slippers (last year)
Topshop Cat Scarf

Seriously- the cat scarf was worth every penny of the full price £20 (I bought it with my very last student discount for £18). It's super fluffy, bang on the perfect length, and it looks as though I have a cat draped over my shoulders. SERIOUSLY, what's not to love.

I'm off to continue pondering my wardrobe in order to find something that will look good on webcam, and that clearly says 'employable, competent, personable, professional'.

CAT SCARF! (ahem) I love these outfits, maybe a plain blouse in a fairly neutral colour for Skype? And try and find somewhere with plenty of natural light (my dad had loads of Skype interviews and it definitely helps!)

So jealous of the cat scarf. I'm doing my sad face right now.

I want the cat slippers. WANT. I also want to joy of watching some gossip girl episodes for the first time again. HELLO THERE CHUCK BASS.

LOL! I was the same when I first saw the scarf (and subsequently HAD to have it). I ended up wearing a very simple black shift dress and neutral cardigan with a small butterfly print. I couldn't do it in natural light though, as my office is below ground level :(

Chloe said...

Me too, the slippers were actually from last year- after T bought me the green ones for Christmas, I spotted these red ones in the Jan sales and slipped them away for this year! And the scarf... well enough said really!

Chloe said...

Sorry.... I don't know if it's still in stock or if there's anything similar dupe-wise out there?

Chloe said...

They're from last year- I squirreled these away after finding them in the sales (and having had T buy me the green version for Christmas). I don't know if they're out again this season...

My Gossip Girl DVD's just arrived. Catching up on Season Four until season 5 comes out on DVD- I missed most of it on TV (stupid rubbish internet). The sofa, my duevt and snacks are also calling my name!

Lauren said...

I still haven't got my hands on that scarf! :( xo

Alex said...

You have the nicest handbags.

Um, why do I not own cat slippers? I only have hippo and starfish ones.

Chloe said...

Why DON'T you own cat slippers?! I'm somewhat concerned by this.

And thanks. It's a long honed obsession of mine. No matter how much my weight fluctuates, my handbag still fits!
