{A New Capsule Wardrobe for Work}

One of the rewards for reaching my mid-point target weight of 11 stone 7 lbs is going to be a few pieces of clothing for work.

A few years back I lived in two piece trouser suits at work teamed with a cotton shirt, but more recently I've been sticking with dresses and skirts. I'm fancying a bit of a change, so my thoughts are that I'll purchase a pair of culottes, like these ones:

I'm also needing a few new shirts or tops that can be mixed and matched with either trousers or a skirt.

I'm a big fan of sequins, and do wear plenty of them at work... I'd love this blouse but it's so expensive, and perhaps a bit too OTT for the office!

I also love this grey link shirt from Reiss

I also would like a new dress to replace my worn out ones, here's what I've come up with so far:

Column Bodycon Dress from M&S Limited Edition

Baukjen Daria Dress in French Navy - I love Baukjen and have a number of their pieces. They've always washed well and kept their shape. Their website is always one of my go-to places when online shopping for clothes. This dress looks really versatile. I could wear it with heels to work but equally dress it down for weekends with the family.

You can tell from my choices that I still have issues with my upper arms!! I know it's probably all in my head, but I just can't help it.

Anyway, have you spotted any decent work-wear of late in the shops that's worthwhile me investigating?
