Work Outfits from August

Something I try and do each day at work is take a photo of my outfit in the mirror. I wanted to document my evolution in style and transition so I could look back and see how far I’ve come. 

With these just being quick snaps in the mirror during my break the quality isn’t going to be the best. I don’t think my boss would be happy with full photoshoots! 

August was a lot cooler then July, so more boots, long sleeves and less sweat!

7th August

Wearing a Black Blouse and Red Leather Skirt with Burgundy Ankle Boots
Blouse: Primark – Skirt: New Look – Booties: New Look (Second Hand)

In hindsight I think this skirt might be a bit short for me. But unless you try these things, you won’t know for sure. I look good though – just had riding skirt issues. I paired the skirt with a new button blouse from Primark and burgundy ankle books that I bought second hand last year. 

8th August

Wearing a black dress with asymmetric hem. green tights and brown knee high boots
Dress: ASOS – Tights: Amazon – Boots: Fly London

Mixing some khaki shades on my legs. I do like coloured tights, they add a bit of colour to my mostly black wardrobe without being too much. Also you’ll be seeing these boots a lot this month. I’ve been wearing them a lot. They are my new boots for walking everywhere!

11th August

Wearing a Grey Dress and Overknee Boots
Dress: New Look – Boots: Long Tall Sally

This is another one of my most worn dresses. I love the subtle pattern. I paired it with some over the knee boots from Long Tall Sally

12th August

Wearing a Black Dress and Overknee Boots
Dress: Boohoo (Second Hand) – Boots: Long Tall Sally

Pretty much the same as the previous day but with a black dress. I’m not very good at retrospective captions am I? I’ve been wearing these basic black dresses a lot this summer. This one from Boohoo reminds me of a Killstar dress I own, that said it’s much more subtle then Killstar!

13th August

Dress: Asos – Boots: Fly London

It’s the black dress and brown boots combination again. It’s a combination that works though. That said I should probably try and vary things a bit more next month!

16th August

Wearing a black dress with asymmetric hem, black tights and brown knee high boots

Dress: Asos – Boots: Fly London

What did I say. To be fair this is a different dress. I do like the funky asymmetric hem, but yes, August was a month of black dress and brown boots. 

17th August

Wearing a green dress. burgundy tights and brown knee high boots
Dress: Primark – Tights: Amazon – Boots: Fly London

Oh wow some colour! My friend had been pestering me to get this dress for a while so we can do the matching outfit thing, it’s a great find. I paired it with some colourful tights and my brown Fly boots. See, I don’t always wear black!

23rd August

Wearing a Burgundy Maxidress with funky hem, a black belt with gold buckle and brown knee high boots
Dress: Ellamoda (Second Hand) – Belt: Primark – Boots: Long Tall Sally

I’ve had this dress for a couple of years now and it still is one of my favourites. I really like the shape and it has pockets!

25th August

Wearing a green dress, a black belt with gold buckle, black tights and brown knee high boots
Dress: Primark – Boots: Fly London

Looking back I really needed a bit more variety this month. But here I am wearing a dress with the Fly Boots. I assure you I’ll try and vary things a bit more next month. 

26th August

Wearing a grey dress, black tights and brown knee high boots
Dress: New Look – Boots: Fly London

Yep, dress and boots again. I did wear other things this month, it just seems I didn’t photograph them. Oops.

27th August

Wearing a black dress, black tights and black overknee boots
Dress: ASOS – Boots: Long Tall Sally

Well at least this time the boots are different! It was a public holiday in the UK, but in my work that means we are much busier then usual. I can’t say I was over enthused to be at work!

30th August

Wearing a colourful Desigual dress, black leggings and brown knee high boots
Dress: Desigual – Boots: Fly London

Back to colour again! I decided to wear this colourful Desigual dress to brighten things up a bit. 

31st August

Wearing a green dress, black leggings and black overknee boots.
Dress: Primark – Boots: Long Tall Sally

Last outfit of August and the green dress appears again. This time I tried pairing it with my overknee boots from Long Tall Sally

I hope you enjoyed this set of outfits. Hopefully September will be a bit more varied.
