New job means new work wear. Somehow i dont think my scrubby old black trousers and basic tees are going to reflect 'smart casual serious professional' so... I went shopping.
I set myself a challenge to spend no more than £70 on my new workwear, because as i get used to the job I might need to alter what i wear to perform better at work (I dont care what men say I am a great believer in what you work in affects how you approach and cope in the workplace).
Thank god for H&M and New Look....heres what i chose:
|Tailored Peg Leg Trousers- £14.99 - New Look|
Then it was over to H&M to get myself a few tops...
|Grey Jumper - £19.99 - H&M|
|Frilly Tee - £7.99 - H&M|
I also picked up a half cream half black scopp neck 3/4 sleeve top for £12.99, but i couldnt find it online to show you guys.
I not only came under budget with my trousers and tops.. i even receieved a £5 H&M giftcard with my purchases! I have my eye on a few more tops and well, it would be rude to waste a perfectly good gift voucher wouldnt it? ;)
Now as i gaze dreamily at my ELLE and try and ignore my cravings for my beloved Topshop, I best be getting on with scouring the internet for homeware (eeeep)!
Lots of Love
