Bare bones business wear in realtime

This, I'll have you know, is a historic post: I don't think I have ever posted an outfit the same day. Although that might just be testament to my poor memory. I am getting a bit lackadaisical about the shortcomings of the old noodle I guess.

Questionable reliability of the space between my ears aside, I am fiendishly pleased with just how open to interpretation the term 'business casual' is. Especially on the 31st of October ;) Here is what I wore to work today.

I don't only get my inspiration for colourful nails from Kaylah but she also created an intense need for skeleton tights in me when she took her pair for its first spin recently.

This little plastic guy was part of my Halloween dollhouse last year, I figured he could double as a brooch just fine :)

Guys, Halloween aside I am sooo hooked on the new Florence and the Machine album it's unreal. What music are you currently stuck on?

Okay, right - enough gibbering on my part already - have a most excellent start to the week everybody!

mittens & hat: primark
jumper: present (pass me down)
dress: camden market
tights & denim jacket: eBay
brogues: office


  1. Those tights are the best! What a cute Hallowe'en outfit! I'm really excited for Florence, I thought the album wasn't out til Monday? I can't stop listening to the newest Bon Iver album and the Be Good Tanyas.

  2. Love this. Everything about this outfit is perfect. Just the right amount of Holiday Cheer!

  8. Thanks :) Looks like the release date is different in the UK. It was out on the 31st over here. I have had it on a loop pretty much non-stop :D

  9. Hallowe'en perfection, Stef!  And I think the number of same-day postings on my blog is two... possibly three.  I'll join you in the infirm noodle club.
