Ladies and gentlemen, meet my new work uniform. Easy to wear, comfortable, presentable and a wee bit stretchy for all those hours sitting on my butt in front of a computer screen. Now clearly this is for my work from home personal business side of my work where I predominately work at home. When I have to go out I’m usually found in a cafe or someone else’s business. The best part about my business is that I can be myself, have some fun with my outfits and still get the work! Win.

This floral blouse is my new most favourite thing ever. My Mum and I were checking out the sales rack at Autograph last week and this beauty was there {what a travesty, right?}. There was an 18, a size 24 and a 26. Mum and I both tried on the 18 and were about to paper, rock scissors for the blouse when I had the bright idea that I would size up a few and be able to wear it more as a tunic top. I am, after all, obsessed with ponte pants and tunic tops at the moment.

Plus when Mum bought the 18 it was like I got two blouses for the price of one. She’s generous like that. The tunic look with an oversized top is one of my hot tips this season. Size up {if possible, believe me, I’ve been a size 26/28 when sizing up is damn near impossible} and benefit from the extra length and looser fit. Trust me on this, it’s fail proof and can be belted or not. Whatever your shape or size or thing.

And did you happen to notice just how perfectly it goes with my Shutterbag camera bag!? Oh you did, did you. Great! I received this bag from Dani. After threatening on numerous occasions to steal it when I visited her place last year, then carrying my new camera around in a tupperware lunch bag {surprisingly effective}, she decided it would make the perfect gift for my 30th birthday! Score. Such an awesome present it’s now my go to work bag since, if I squish it in, my new MacBook Pro fits in the rear compartment. My iPad as well if I need all hands on deck. Winning!

So that’s my go to work look. Comfortable, modern, a wee bit stylish with a big bag {not too big} to fit everything in. Oh and wedges. Always with the wedges because they’re just so darn comfortable and easy to wear. I’ve just about got this thing all figured it. It took me a while. Trust me! Phew.

See that photo above? The one with my mouth about as open as it can be, want to know why that is? Why the big laugh? And no, it wasn’t yet another shameless promotion of this post about laughing with your mouth open. It was because Hubby referenced that whole, ‘just waitin’ for a mate’ thing. Have you seen that? Drunk {or stoned or both} guy crashes his car, bits of it everywhere then insists to the police officers who arrive on scene that nope, it wasn’t him who had the accident he’s just waitin’ for a mate. Apparently me sitting around reminded hubby of this. HA.

Sometimes outfit photos are fun, sometimes not so much {usually we are in a rush, or bordering on running late and there’s someone cranky about that}. Sometimes no matter how good hubby gets on week, the next he cuts my shoes off or says it’s a gorgeous photo when I’m not even in focus. Relationships are hard work, relationships that involve countless outfit photo opportunities, probably harder. The worst part is he knows that I know that he know that I owe him one. Or fifty. And he’s not afraid to call in a favour. Sigh.

    • Thank you SSG.
      It’s a beautiful colour, right? I get sucked into jewel tones in winter, they call to me. Loudly. Haha.

    Lovely blouse!! I just started working from home and it´s been difficult to figure out what to wear. I mean, it´s really tempting to just hang around in a baggy sweater and some old jeans, something comfy to sit in front of the computer for so many hours. But I still wanna feel that I´m at work, so I´m trying to find a balance between comfy and put together.

    • Thank you. It’s a fast favourite this one. I’m hearing you. I’m lucky I still have a part-time job that means I HAVE to get dressed otherwise it would make for almost zero content on the blog. Haha. There’s a middle ground though between the work at home slob and work at home waaaay over the top. Not sure where that is, but I hear it’s there. 😉

    I really love this outfit. Particularly the wedges!

    • The wedges are this perfect mustardy tan colour that pretty much goes with EVERYTHING. Such a find. Thanks Amy.

  • I have this top! They didn’t have it in my size, but it was too gorgeous (and cheap) to pass up so I sized up too. I haven’t worn it yet, as I’ve been struggling with how to style it, so thank you for the inspiration!

    • You’re welcome Rylie! It really was too great of a top to not buy, I’m hearing you. Haha.

  • Lordy I LOVE this outfit! So much! SO much! Autograph does the BEST floral prints and those pants look fab on you.

    • Haha. Lordy. LOVE IT. Thanks Nat. And they really do, I walk past sometimes and think WOW, nailed it.
