What's in my basket: Dorothy Perkins office work wear haul

This ended up very much being a work-wear haul.  I don't know what it is when the seasons change, but I suddenly feel I have nothing to wear to work and can't remember what I was wearing the year before.

I know I've bought the same dress in three colours - I can't help it.  When I find something that seems the perfect shape for me, I tend to go a bit overboard.  Ideally I'd rather the sleeves were a bit longer, but I'll wear these with little blazers anyway, so it doesn't matter.




The cardigan is literally huge and the arms are like wings, but it's super snuggly and just I wanted for throwing over things when it's cold at home.  I'm not sure about the coat - I loved the contrast sleeves and I think that caused me to ignore the unflattering shape.  I should probably return this and look for a more fitted waist type coat.

We're not allowed to wear leggings in my office, so I go for a similar look with skinny trousers and this pair looked pretty good.  I didn't really need a new top but I can't resist a peplum and I'm loving berry colours right now.

I get a lot of my work-wear from Dorothy Perkins, but I've also spotted some lovely sparkly dresses like this one which might be infiltrating my basket next time I have a little haul.

Keep up to date with all things flutter and sparkle in any of the following ways -
