Assorted Work Outfits and Link Up

Ready for punting in Cambridge. Team of work colleagues about to set off.
It's been a very busy couple of weeks. No sooner had we got back from Parga then I had a big week at work with our biennial planning meeting and a team face-to-face.  I stayed in Cambridge for a few days and it all got off to a fun start with punting on the River Cam.  Here's the team, including our US colleagues.

With a few jugs of Pimm's and a lovely evening, it was a great way to spend an hour.

This is what I wore for the punting: a casual outfit of white jeans and jacket with a big splash of lilac, one of my favourite colours, in the top, brogue shoes and bag. (Notice how I obviously didn't check in the mirror before I took the photo, as the jacket loops are visible! Duh!).

I've been looking for a denim jacket for ages, and in particular, a more fitted version, because short boxy jackets don't suit me. I found this one on Amazon. I'm not sure it's very fitted but it's a good colour. Some of you recommended I wear a denim jacket with the Anthropologie dress I wore last year, and I think it looks much better worn this way and with white trainers.

One of my best buys this summer has been the cropped black culottes from Hope, which hold their shape very well and don't need ironing.Zingy summer number - lime green top, patterned jacket and black cropped trousers
Here they're worn with a jacket that was thrifted  (last seen here), a square necked top from Kettlewell and sandals from Marks and Spencer (SS17).  My versatile midi length beige skirt, from M&S last year, works well with a camouflage t-shirt and gold mules (M&S, SS16).A casual work look: camo tshirt and midi skirt with gold mule sandals
One thing I've noticed since I got back from holiday is that the pigmentation on my face is looking  a lot worse.  If anyone has any recommendations for products that reduce it, I'd love to know.

Finally I've got some new leggings for the gym. These are from a firm fairly local to me, Yoga Leggs, and I have many pairs. They come up high to cover muffin tops, are soft and stretchy, and in a multitude of colours and patterns. This design is Lipstick Leopard, worn with a much loved (old) Adidas top.  Everything is delivered globally.

  1. Funny that we both featured rivers this week. Shall we call it a collab?
