I am very relieved to say this week I decided to leave one of my three jobs, the one I was least flexible in. Yes this is the one that pays me the most but I have decided that money is not as important as my happiness. If you read my Page religiously you will know that in the last few months a lot has changed for me and this is another step I have taken to focus on myself.
In light of realising I seem to have lost any items of black clothing I may have owned at some point, I have been doing some shopping. I wear black all the time, so I would have thought it would be easy to shop for more bits I can pull off at work (as I am only meant to wear plain black). I must admit I found it slightly harder than expected to pick out several items I thought would look nice without showing off too much boob or bod.
These are the items I purchased:
I started looking on Top Shop and realised I didn’t want to pay that much for work clothes.. Even if I could wear them normally too.
I decided to look on missguided instead as the prices are much more reasonable, I managed to get a couple of great bargains.
· Black distressed long sleeve sweatshirt – £22
· Crew neck ribbed top black – £8
· Petite boyfriend v-neck t-shirt black – £8
· Open back t shirt – £12
· V-neck cross strap front t-shirt black – £12
In total with my sister’s student discount this came to – £57.79 (Next Day Delivery)
I can not argue with that as it’s enough to give me some choice when I am getting ready for work!
I didn’t stop there… After misguided I decided to have a cheeky look on Missyempire and ended up with two more things in my basket!
The first item was – Alisha Black Eyelet Lace Detail T Shirt – £18
The second item I fell in love with at first sight, so I knew I had to buy it! – Molly Longline Black Soft Cardigan – £34
As I was checking out at FULL PRICE I got a popup saying, ‘Don’t Go take 15% off’ with code ‘DONTGO’, obviously I added it to my basket and with next day delivery at £3.99 plus the discount my total came to £48.19.
I didn’t think this was bad for what I ordered ..I could be wrong.
I felt very successful after my little shopping spree and in total I have 6 new black tops and a new cardigan to give me at least a few different outfits I can play with.
I know that this is a common thing to just be asked to wear black or dark clothing in a job, so I would love to know where you shop for bits that aren’t too expensive but still add a little bit of style to your work wardrobe!
