Workwear with a Kathryn Twist

After a great weekend in Glasgow (you may have seen my tweets **shakes head**), I was struck down with a stomach bug which seems to be going around, so Wednesday became my Monday!

Mondays aren't usually a problem day for me. I like my job, I don't mind office wear, and usually ge enough sleep to not feel cheated out of sleep. But as I was still recovering from lack of sleep and tummy trouble, I needed something to cheer me up!

Ooh, scowly face Kathryn there! Sorry about that!
I love this necklace, I immediately thought of designer Rob Ryan when I saw this!
Marks and Spencer tights in purple & my Clarks brogues. 
They remind me of The Bill credits,
and the shoes the female Police Officers wore!
Top in teal: Simply Be - same as the top worn here
Skirt: Domino Dollhouse (no longer available)
Belt: unknown
Necklace: Glasgow Westend Market
Brogues: Clarks
Tights: M&S
Glasses: Gok Wan for Specsavers

The belt is a thin one I must have got with a dress at some point. Like I mentioned, my tummy wasn't feeling at it's best, so I felt a thin belt would be best (to actually hold my skirt up!), but can't wait to wear this with my thick nurses belt for an added waist OOMPH.

I loved this combination! The teal and the purple are far enough away from each other that they compliment, not clash, and I got a real autumnal feel wearing this!

The Domino Dollhouse skirt is a favourite of mine, and I love that it can be dressed up for smart work, as well as dressed down with a band tee for slouchy weekends. 

I'm hoping to put a post together about my favourite outfit from Glasgow in the next couple of days, but I did wear this (with leggings, not tights) for shopping on the Saturday and it still felt amazing! Just a perfect combination that I'll make sure I get my wear out of this A/W!

Much love my lovelies,
