Work wear isn't something I usually blog, mostly because I can wear whatever I want to work so it's not an integral part of my wardrobe. However, just lately I've been really loving shirts and slightly more work type looks, so I took the New Look sale as my opportunity to try it out, albeit with still a 'Kitty' sort of feel to it.


I've been looking at this chiffon shirt on and off for ages but couldn't decide if I liked it or not. Brown and khaki aren't really colours I usually wear but the animal print is very me. When this came into the sale I couldn't resist! For £11 it was a bargain. It has a slightly oversized fit, so the sleeves are long enough for my 5ft 11 frame which I was most concerned about. I always size up in New Look and it was the right decision with this shirt. It fit really nicely and didn't gape at the bust at all. It has split sides but I wore it tucked in for this look.


This mesh skater skirt has been in my ASOS saved items forever. It was originally £27.99 which is a little pricey for me, but patience paid off and eventually it went on sale on New Look for £14 and it had to be mine! It sits just below the knee on me, with the lining being a little higher. The lining is only attached at the waistband, so you will need to make sure to adjust it too. I'm really glad I got this skirt, I've been missing skirts as a part of my wardrobe and this is so cute. They also have it in red and I am very tempted...


My Mum got me this bag from ASOS for Christmas, but it's been a bit of a pain unfortunately. While I love the faux croc print and the satchel style, the shoulder strap is a nightmare. It kept attaching itself to the bag itself and damaging the faux leather, and then it just broke on one side entirely. I'm going to exchange it for a non-faulty one and hope it was just this one that was dodgy.


I'm a huge fan of Quay Australia sunglasses, and these 'Sorority Princess' rose gold sunglasses are over sized cat eye perfection. I have quite a big head (I'm a big person over all!) and I find their sunglasses such a comfortable fit. With my chronic head pain, comfort is key for me when it comes to sunglasses and these really fit the bill. I won my necklace from BloodyMary Metal in an instagram competition a couple of years ago!


I know the boots aren't exactly classic work wear, but they are very me and I couldn't resist. The mesh, the leopard print, the boots, peak work Kitty! I wore this outfit to an afternoon party we had for my Mum's birthday and got so many compliments on it. I think I need more shirts, I felt so cute in this one and love how it still felt a very me sort of outfit.

Where is your favourite place to shop for shirts for work?

Much love,
Kitty xxxx

    1. Oh I live in sunglasses, winter can be so bright still! They make them in a longer or shorter style, so I might have to invest in them! x

  2. Love the shirt. I'm a bit partial to animal prints too. And at £11, that one is a bargain. Tx

  3. You look lovely Kitty. :) I love the shirt!!! I can't get enough of animal prints so it's right up my street!! When I moved to UK from Norway I was a bit taken back by the strict office clothes rules they had here in UK as back in Norway it's so much more relaxed.
