Printed Top, Pencil Skirt, Mulberry Bayswater | Jeanswest Dress, Marc by Marc Jacobs Fran Bag

Here's what I wore to work on Tuesday:
Office wear mulberry baywater untucked shirt pencil skirt black and brown tan

mulberry bayswater tote bag oak NVT leather
SunglassesRayban new Wayfarers
Necklace: House of Harlow Dynamic necklace in gold
Top: Cotton On Salta peasant top in Berlin print
Skirt: Jeanswest black ponte pencil skirt
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs logo plaque flats in camel
Bracelets: the usual plus beaded black and gold bracelet set
BagMulberry Bayswater in Oak NVT leather


A great benefit of this skirt is that it has elasticated side panels, you can see them better the last time I wore it. Makes it quite comfortable to wear, and perfect for a day of meetings with a loose printed top. Had to carry my Bayswater as I had to tote some papers around again, so I thought the print on the top tied in with the black and tan theme quite well.

Dress: Jeanswest ruffle neckline animal print dress
Shoes: New Look brown cut-out detail shoe
Bracelets: the usual plus gifted mixed metal spiral bracelet stack, Ferragamo double wrap bracelet
BagMarc By Marc Jacobs Classic Q Fran bag with gold hardware in carob brown


Had to do a presentation today in front of some fairly important people, so I was really nervous. Went with this simple printed dress so I'd feel as comfortable and relaxed as possible. I think the presentation went well in the end, got a good response.

Was surprised when I looked back in the blog and realised I hadn't paired this bag and dress together before, seems like such an obvious combo as I like to wear this dress with brown a lot.


I've been wearing my Rayban sunglasses a lot lately after hubby kindly got them for me for Christmas. It's great to start off the new year with a new pair of sunnies and as I have a lot of cute pairs that are similar to the Wayfarer style it was an obvious choice. New year, new look and a new pair of glasses!


I think it's good to have a mix of sunglasses, especially for the summer sun in Australia. Vision Direct have even created a sunglasses lookbook to help you find the perfect glasses for you. I've owned some designer sunglasses in the past, but my current Wayfarer obsession puts me in the "girl next door" style category. Some nice sunglasses there! Check out the look book above to see what sunglasses match your style, I thought it was quite fun. :)

  9. You are rocking all the dresses beautifully. I love sunnies. I have to wear them even during winter because my eyes are sensitive to the winter glare. Make sure you get yours with polarized lenses. They are the best ones to protect your eyes from annoying glare and the UV protection from the sun :)

  24. The Mulberry Bayswater in Oak has been my dream bag for ages. Then I found out about their price tag, haha. I love these two outfits, the first one mainly for the perfect handbag and the second one because the color of the handbag and dress match SO well together.

    Congratulations on your presentation! I always find it a great relief when I get positive feedback afterwards. Presentations make me incredibly nervous! xo

    1. I hate presenting, my least favourite part of my job! :(

      I got lucky to score the bayswater on sale and to have an extra coupon code to go with it! I always try have a little "bag fund" set aside for when I see great chances like that, haha! :) Never seen one so cheap since!
