What I Wore To Work Wednesday: Autumn Blues



Hi team! A quick ‘What I Wore To Work’ from me today – mainly because I bought this dress and these shoes  and I couldn’t wait to show you!! 


How hard is it dressing for this weather?! Not quite warm enough for no-jacket but too warm for your coat.


A duster coat is the perfect answer to that and today’s dress is a lovely silky find, in a wintery print. Proof that you CAN wear print to work and still look quite corporate.

Duster Coat & Cube Print Dress by F&F


The standout piece of today’s outfit is this amazing printed dress from F&F. I wore the white version to London Fashion Week and immediately knew I had to get the other colour too!


My LFW White Version!



 It feels so much more expensive than it actually is – it feels like a dress from Cos, a lovely silky but sturdy material. Totally worth the £15 I paid for it during the recent F&F 25% off weekend! I love a good bargain!


I love the coloured print – it’s smart, it’s modern and you can also wear this dress with black tights when it gets colder. The perfect Autumn to Winter transition!



Before we get to the pictures, I just want to make zero apologies for the obvious attempt to photoshop out my life (aka my cluttered bedroom floor). I’ve spared you the horror..

I’ve teamed the dress with this textured black duster coat which I swear – goes with EVERYTHING. AND – if I’m not excited enough – it has HUGE POCKETS which fit everything I need in it! (phone, cards, oyster, keys, lipgloss)


Seriously, whenever I can’t be bothered to carry a bag, I’ll just wear this duster coat. P-L-A-N.




Anyway, less exciting but equally lovely are my new tassle leather shoes from &Other Stories. I bought them on a 50% off at Vogue Fashion’s Night Out. They’re not my usual cup of tea (possibly a bit too out-there for me) but I just thought they were really really nice and great quality. Oh god, I sound like my mum – GOOD QUALITY LEATHER, GOOD BARGAIN – it’s like buying ugly shoes in Clarks again back in the 90s. (without the awesome foot measuring machine!)



So there we go – a quick look at today’s outfit. What do you think?


And how awesome was the foot measuring machine at Clarks?!?!

    The dress is rather chic. That windowpane print is so on-trend. I like your loafers too. They have a preppy vibe.Sharonhttp://www.afashioncrowd.blogspot.com
