Good Morning Monday,
Some work days call for more formal office attire and today I’ve got the perfect affordable option to look smart and classy.
I’ve been quite unsatisfied with my work attire recently having had a lot of the pieces I wear regularly for a while now. Although I like to mix them up to create different looks, I’ve pretty much exhausted that now and I was need in of something new and fresh for spring.
I was in Edinburgh a few weeks ago when my friend was visiting for the weekend and of course we indulged in a spot of shopping which is something we are both very good at. In H&M we were both drawn to this dress and suit jacket combo. I wasn’t in the mood to try it on but I’m so glad Jess talked me into it. Unfortunately H&M decided to make this dress really really small which results in women feeling pretty bad about themselves in the changing room when their usual size does not fit. It literally ruined my day when I had to go a size up and I left the store feeling deflated although as Jess also had to go up a size I realised it wasn’t because I’d actually gone up a size, it was just made small. A few days later I read this article and realised it was about the exact same dress in navy. I only had to go up one size but can you imagine how you’d feel having to go up 5 sizes. It’s totally unacceptable and I don’t understand why they do it.
Anyway it is a very tailored dress which flatters the figure and accentuates the waist. The light shade of grey is perfect for Spring. The suit jacket is a good fit and can be worn with other dresses or trousers. With each piece being only £24.99 each I think it is a great buy and a very affordable suit for smart office days.
I’m off to London tomorrow and weather providing, this is what I’ll be wearing.
