[Outfit] Showing Your Stripes

Last week was actually quite a nice one in London town, so Nancy and I made the most of it and got ourselves out in the sunshine to shoot an outfit I've been wearing a lot recently. Although it's not quite time for "legs out," I've been sporting this Topshop dress for a while now (since I mentioned wanting it in this post) with tights - cannot wait to when hosiery isn't needed. Pinstripes were so all over the runways last season and managed to resist buying into it when everyone else went nuts for the coats etc, and I'm glad I did as this is much more practical purchase.

My shoes are one of my favourites, I always get asked after them. I got them last summer from SuperTrash as part of a London Fashion Week campaign they did with a bunch of us bloggers.  At first I thought they were a little bit too "out there" but every time I wear them I get complimented so I must be on to something! I wear them to work all the time now, but also love putting them with my boyfriend jeans at weekends - they're insanely comfortable.

The bag was Nancy's though will soon be mine. It's funny how putting an outfit together for the blog highlights something you are missing in your wardrobe! I've realised I really don't have a decent "work style" bag as I tend to go for totes and other less practical shapes.  So, I'm going to be following in Nancy's steps and buying one of these - it's well structured, versatile and more to the point easily fits a laptop in and zips shut!  Overall, an extremely simple office-savvy outfit, no?

Really cute outfit and I love your shoes - Showing my age I suppose but I love what I call little smock dresses! I am a child of the 70's, at least that is my excuse!!

I've got a really sweet white one with little navy polka dots on which I got from APC and I love, but like you I've been waiting for some nicer weather.
