Updating my Workwear Wardrobe

Dress: Zara, Tights: Primark, Boots: Zara, Watch: Michael Kors

I've had these pictures saved in this blog post for a couple of weeks now and just had no idea of what to write alongside them, it was so tempting to just post the pictures out on their own but what is a blog post without words?! 

I struggle to buy clothes for work, I believe it is down to the fact that I am not exactly comfortable in my body at the moment, in this day and age why should I be so concerned by the way I look but unfortunately it can be quite tricky to change the way you feel about things - one day I hope I can get up in a morning and not be bothered with my look, shape and size. However, this bambling is for another day!

Work wear for me are structured items; structured shirts, pencil skirts and smart black trouser which aren't exactly the most comfortable fabric and don't suit my body shape. We live in 2017 and really, we don't have to follow suit, you can wear exactly what you want to wear (obviously within reason). 

Zara have pulled out all the stops with this beauty, just look how cute the frill is!! I actually saw this dress on Instagram and immediately had to own it I just love how the pop of orange breaks up the black and grey. It is quite thin fabric so perfect for the cooler summer days, I wore it with tights but it would look stunning bare legged with a pair of heels or sandals.
