I was having a general scroll around online yesterday during my lunch and I came across Marks and Spencer's SS13 range and couldn't get over how amazing it looked. It's not really a brand that I even look at and really only go in with my mums but seriously I want it all! I actually tweeted a few pics yesterday.
Now when I'm looking for new purchases I really have to think about getting a few bits that I can work into both my casual and work wear wardrobe. My work attire is strictly smart - none of this smart casual look (I would love to be able to get away with that). So I've mixed my favorite bits into smart and casual looks.
|Top to Bottom L-R: Floral Peplum Skirt £39.50, Bird Print Dress £35.00, Mystic Print Pencil Skirt £45.00, Mirror Print Blazer £49.50, Graphic Print Pencil Skirt (price not known) Floral Shirt £25.00|
First off I would say that some of these are probably far too bright and colourful for my office, but worked in with some block covered pieces I think they would work brilliantly. I'm in love with the three skirts and could see myself living in them in the summer - with a nice crisp white shirt! The red dress is amazingly cute and even though it's probably not the usual office attire I might try this out on a client free day. The jacket would go great with a little black dress and the shirt would be fab under one of my black dresses. Also both the jacket and the shirt would work well with my casual gear!
|Top to Bottom L-R: Tile Print Trousers £35.00, Dainty Print Shirt £35.00, Denim Shirt £39.50, Floral Print Trousers £17.50|
Love all of the above and want and need them in my wardrobe.
The trousers are a bargain!
|Top to Bottom L-R: Pale Pink Heels £25.00, Floral Box Clutch £29.50, Pink Satchel Bag £25.00, Floral Box Clutch £25.00, Blue Bowling Bag £35.00, Pastel Jewel Necklace £19.50|
Want them all! Seriously how amazing is the selection. The clutches are particularly gorgeous and not a bad price. For £25.00 I want the Satchel but I couldn't find it up on the website just yet, but I'm going to stalk it.
