Autumn/Winter Clothing 2013: Part Two: Back to Work Special

I have quite a busy week this week which leaves me a bit distracted. I've been off work ill for almost a year and tomorrow I will be returning. I will be doing a phased return so this week I only do two days, tomorrow and Wednesday. I can't help but feel nervous and slightly scared. I've distracted myself with planning what to wear, some items I've bought this year (I will link if still available) others have been in my wardrobe for a while and here are the three options.

Dress Topshop tall, Jacket ASOS £35.00, Boots Office, Bag & Socks Topshop
I bought this jacket for a wedding, I needed something loose as it wasn't long after I'd had an operation so another shopping spend at ASOS was in order. As soon as it came I knew it could double up as my one and only work jacket. I love the jersey dresses from Topshop, this one is super comfy but even though it is from the tall range it is quite short on me so I'll need tights as well. The boots I bought from Office early this year and are polyurethane, I'd been looking for something like this not made of leather for a while, I wasn't sure about the heel as I have no talent for walking in them but I can walk in these, I wish I would have picked these up in tan too. 

Leopard Top and navy jersey pencil skirt Next, Bag Matt & Nat Blake in mustard - I won this and believe there is only the one in this colour! Pastel green vans and socks Topshop again! 

I love Matt & Nat, they are an ethical vegan range of bags and purses. I've had a purse for a while but in December last year I won this one off design sample, I was over the moon as it is my first proper posh handbag in a sensible colour! The top and skirt I picked up in Next when we were picking up a jade green suit for my partner. Both the top and skit are stretchy and comfy, a winning combination. I love Vans I think for me they slightly trump Converse, certainly better on a skateboard. 

Sweatshirt Topshop, T-shirt Urban Outfitters, Jersey Skirt H&M,  Boots Office, Handbag & socks Topshop
My last and my more usual work look although I would usually go with a longer skirt. I'm a bit lazy with work clothes, I prefer my sleep to getting ready so usually I throw on what is to hand, even if I put things to one side items tend to go missing in the night. I do move around a lot at work so I always wear loose stuff and rarely heels but I am trying to get used to walking in them. 

At least I have some outfits planned, it might be one of them or a combination of all. I think whether I wear heels will all come down to whether I'm running on time for the bus. Fingers crossed!
