Shopping for 'work appropriate' clothes

Today I went to the Trafford Centre to try to find 2 outfits for next week. I really wanted to find something colourful, as I think it's important to show my personality whilst remaining professional. It took hours, and my feet are in pain from a lot of walking on my new heels! Sometimes it can be so difficult to find professional clothes that are also stylish and not too dowdy.

This is what I came home with after an entire day's efforts:

2 pairs of suntan tights from M&S, a navy shift dress (right) from River Island - £25. A black fitted dress (left) from Mango - £50. A cream blazer also from Mango - £50. A striped dress
from Monsoon - £75.


And this is what I'm up to tonight! I'm going to take a bubble bath with Sunnyside (£3.50 each) and read my new book. After all the hype about The Hunger Games I'm excited to read this!

I hope you all had a lovely day!
