Outfit: Brightening Up My Warehouse Cigarette Pants

Hey guys. Hope everyone's doing okay & enjoying this autumn Wednesday afternoon. After having a really productive day yesterday, today seems to be much more subdued, I'm still in my onesie (which is leopard print & totally awesome btw) my hair looks like a birds nest, and I've still got a naked face. I really have my 'can't be bothered' head on at the moment, I'll just ride it out though - I'll be all cool again by this afternoon... And I have to go to work! Boo!... Good job I've got these OOTD pictures ready to go.

I wore this outfit yesterday whilst out and about doing my jobs, I was actually off work yesterday, but you know how it is - Sometimes days away from work can feel so much busier than days there. Or is that just me? I don't know what it is either, and this is probably going to sound really strange, but when I'm adding to my Interior Design portfolio, I like to dress quite smart & sophisticated. As if I am a 'real' Interior Designer (I will get there!) I wore this yesterday when I was out sampling fabrics.

These cigarette trousers don't really make that many appearances out of my wardrobe unfortunately, I rarely get the opportunity to wear them now with me changing jobs, but I thought they'd work perfectly though with this splash of colour. Warehouse are currently only stocking the black & blue pair of these but I was lucky enough to pick up this soft grey colour. They're not as harsh as the black pair & I thought they'd be much more versatile for everyday wear. I've teamed these with a simple white tee, you can't see from the images but it's got a lovely cut out on the back that's super flattering & just adds that little bit extra pzazz! My injection of colour for this outfit is this brilliantly bright blazer - How amazing is this colour? I still can't decide weather its a bright yellow or a lime green: It's classed as lime green on the website but I'm just not convinced. And this fabulous Ted Baker clutch, I know I bang on about affordable fashion all the time, this is a little bit of a splurge, but I thought long and hard about it. It did take a few months for me to bite the bullet & fork out for this little beauty, granted it's not mega expensive, but I'm such a tight arse - I hate spending a small fortune, especially if I can find a cheaper alternative. I'm also doing something here which I very very rarely do, and more often than not, regret doing... Wearing heels! These are an absolutely gorgeous pair, and surprisingly, they're really comfy! In fact I have them in black as well as this taupe colour. I always find wedges are much comfier than stilettos but these are something else, I think because they're more of a boot, they have that added support & makes mooching round Leeds just that little bit easier.

PS. Please excuse the state of our flat, we haven't got round to unpacking everything yet & could really do with an extra desk/unit to store everything in. Ooops!

Thanks for taking a look. Lots of love.
