Guys, how much do you love ModCloth? If you’re not familiar with it, it’s a US site, which ships to the UK, selling awesome threads and accessories, cute and quirky homewares and it caters to all sizes. When I was contacted recently to put together a layered style board, I was only too happy to spend an evening pursuing the site (and making a good old Polyvore board)
Since I’ve started a new job recently, I’ve been navigating the dreaded ‘smart casual’ minefield (too smart? Too casual? Every office seems to differ). Plus, being January, it’s bloody freezing ’till about 1pm when the heating kicks on. Layers are needed!
My starting point was the rather cozy looking velvet leggings in a nice deep red – possible to dress up or down and adds a pop of colour. Next a longline shirt would be great for keeping things smart when the CEO’s about and cool when’s it’s needed. A neat scarf is handy to throw on if you’re getting a draft, or venturing to the photocopier room (why is it always freezing in there?! Just me?), while the monochrome cardigan will keep you snug on the tea run. Modcloth know the benefits of a good cardi so have all bases covered (I was tempted by this jawsome shark one but thought it wasn’t really in keeping with the theme!) check them all out here. Smart-casual achieved.
