Office Wear October - Give Me Comfort

I thought I would start my Office Wear October posts by delving into my personal history of work outfits. I work in an office environment with a slightly more relaxed dress code. I find some days I wake up wanting to dress-to-impress, and other days I couldn’t care less what I put on my body as long as it’s comfortable. I figure most women have this yo-yo feeling towards work fashion, switching between stylish and “I can’t be fucked”.

Today I’m focusing on my quick, easy and comfortable outfits. These are all outfits I have worn to work (in some cases probably too many times) and I can rely on to carry me through the day without a problem.

My winter wardrobe is pretty heavy on the black & greys at the moment. It's probably because I have zero fucks to give on cold mornings before work haha. But either way, this Target longline cardigan is my go-to. It's soft, versatile and doesn't leave gre

Outfit 1 - Long line cardigan from Target, long line basic black top from 17 Sundays, City Chic tights, Rubi Shoes boots.

Navy & grey for this overcast weather. Cannot wait until it's warm again!! ☔️

Outfit 2 - Glassons navy cardigan, Target black singlet, Target grey ponte pants, Payless black knee high boots.

Black & white for Monday.

Outfit 3 - Target black round neck long sleeve tee, Target black ponte leggings, Glassons cardigan and Rubi Shoes boots.

Work outfit of the day. I really didn't want to leave bed this morning so opted for reliable and super comfortable pieces.   Who else is just completely baffled by this autumn weather? It's freezing one day and boiling the next! So hard to plan for!

Outfit 4 - City Chic red bird cardigan, Target black singlet, Target grey ponte pants, Rubi Shoes brown loafers.

Another new purchase featuring black & white. I wore this to work yesterday & for dinner with my in-laws. Wearing #target jumper & #dorothyperkins jeggings. Both super comfy!

Outfit 5 - Black and white jumper from Target, Dorothy Perkins black jeggings.

Rocking out my superman colours at work.   Wearing: Navy #citychic top // red #glassons cardigan // thick grey #target tights.

Outfit 6 - City Chic navy 3/4 sleeve top, Glassons red cardigan, Target grey ponte pants.

As you can see, I use the same elements over and over again- the ponte pants I love from Target, basic black singlets and long sleeve tops, statement or block colour cardigans. These are my safety zone clothes. I feel good in them and they work every time.

Extras: Phone case is from Casetify. Pink nail polish in first three pictures is Color Club (the raspberry scented polish). Hair colour by Hybrid Hair Salon Pennant Hills.
