Workwear Part 2

Firstly, apologies that this is a day later than I'd planned. The weekend was busier than expected so I'm a day behind on my blog posts. Also, now that the weather has dramatically improved, these outfits are looking slightly more spring/autumn like BUT because Claire's wardrobe is such a great capsule, all you have to do is replace the black skirt/tights with a pair of white, stone or black linen trousers or get those pins out - Simples! 
So here we go with Claire's second instalment of work-wear...

Cardigan - Matalan, Skirt throughout - Warehouse
(out of stock- similar on link)
Scarf - Warehouse, Cardigan - Phase 8 (similar), Shoes - Next 
Jumper - Inwear (similar) - the butterfly scarf matches this outfit too!
V-neck jumper - Uniqlo, Scarf - Jaeger (similar), Shoes - French Sole
Dress - White Stuff (old), Top - H&M, Boots - Dune
Dress - Warehouse (old), Top - H&M
I'm sure you can see how versatile Claire's work wardrobe is. It's a combination of bright tops and simple bottoms, allowing her to mix a different ensemble every day. All of these outfits can be worn with navy/black/stone/white on the bottom half or in the case of the dresses, they can be worn without tops underneath and with summer tights or bare legs. Claire's shoes are flat and comfortable, reflecting the fact that she's on her feet all day but you could easily wear all the outfits with heels, boots or sandals.
Once the weather reliably warms up, Claire has offered to share her summer work wardrobe. Watch this space!
Oh, and thanks for all the lovely coloured jeans photos - I'm compiling them into a post today and it's looking like a good one! See you tomorrow :)
