There have been a few culture shocks for me since I started my new job. Swapping the life of a freelance blogger to work in a school is strange, not least because there is a dress code at work. I’ve swapped my mum uniform of jeans and jumper for interview smart which has been a bit of a shock. Thankfully Simply Be came to my rescue, offering me the chance to style an outfit for my Autumn wardrobe.
Back to work outfit with Simply Be
Autumn is easily my favourite season. I love wearing layers, going for walks in the woods and watching the trees changing colour, then coming home to a delicious home cooked meal. As part of their Autumn challenge I picked a gorgeous pair of Chelsea boots in camel. I’ve never owned Chelsea boots before but I need smart shoes for work and these will help me transition my wardrobe through Autumn to Winter. The Florence Chelsea Boots are really comfortable too, which is a bonus as I’m on my feet all day. They will also go with most items in my wardrobe!
I live in jeans so it’s been hard to wear smart trousers every day. I took the opportunity to try something a little different with the long sleeve shirt dress. It’s gorgeous floral pattern is perfect for work. I chose to pair it with stretch black leggings as this is smart but casual too. It’s so important to be comfortable at work and it’s a great length with long sleeves and a cute tie waist belt.
This is a lovely outfit for work and I can’t wait to wear it next week. As the weather is getting so much colder the final item I chose was a reversible crinkle scarf in navy and grey. I love the constellation pattern and have been getting lots of compliments about it.
What do you think of my Autumn outfit?
