#thebigblogmasproject2014: What I Wear To Work - Autumn/Winter Edition

Some of you might have seen that quite a few bloggers are doing the #BigBlogmasProject, organised by the lovely Cole from Cole of the Ball, and I'm one of them :) It's a bit daunting taking on the challenge to blog every day, but I'm hoping I can keep it up and that it will help me get my blogging mojo back. The first post is a general winter post, but it still feels quite autumnal, so I'm easing myself in with an autumn/winter fashion post.

As regular readers may recall, earlier this year I wrote a post about what I was wearing to work during the summer heatwave, and because I got such a great response to it I thought it would be nice to write a follow-up post on what I've been wearing as the weather's got colder. I work in a fairly relaxed office so what I wear really depends on what I'm doing that day, the vibe I want to channel or simply what's clean and roughly goes together, but hopefully this will give you a flavour of what I go for in the changing seasons.

I'm afraid most of the stuff here is quite old - but hopefully it might give you some autumn/winter fashion inspiration! And has also made me realise the worrying amount of money I spent in Dorothy Perkins once upon a time...

Monday: Busy day in the office so I opted for a very simple outfit. I really like the look of a bright but plain top next to a patterned flared skirt - it's a combination I reach for a lot. This royal blue top and geometric print skirt are both from Dorothy Perkins.

Tuesday: We had a big event launching one of our major annual reports today, so I wanted something quite smart. This blue snake print dress from Dorothy Perkins is my go-to for these occasions - it's the combination of the fitted shape, demure long sleeves and soft jersey fabric. I call it my 'Kate Middleton dress' (though I suspect her version would cost a lot more!).

Wednesday: Another day, another bright top and printed skirt - again both from Dorothy Perkins. The skirt is a particular favourite of mine; I originally thought it was leopard print when I picked it up but it's actually snake, which I like as it's a bit different. The black piping detail makes it a bit smarter and I also love the fact it has pockets.

Thursday: One of our team members was leaving this week (sniff!), so we went out for a goodbye lunch for him and I wanted something a bit more casual but still smart. This dress is from a shop on Columbia Road called Queenie &Ted that specialise in customising clothes, layered over a long-sleeved white top from Dorothy Perkins. I love the usual embroidery detail on the waistband and the 70s-style floral print - it looks great with my Marks & Spencer knee-length flat boots.

Friday: A more casual outfit to finish off the week, with a bit of a nautical touch. The stripy top is from Primark and the skirt is from Joy - perfect for a relaxed Friday in the office and then a trip to the pub after work.

What do you wear to work in the autumn/winter?
