Dressed All In Black

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

Distressed Jumper

·      Crew neck ribbed top black – £8

Ribbed Crew Neck Top

·      Petite boyfriend v-neck t-shirt black – £8

v neck

·      Open back t shirt – £12

Open back top

·      V-neck cross strap front t-shirt black – £12

Cross front

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

A Item from Missy Empire

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

A Item from Missy Empire cardi

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!

  1. I shop online and honestly there’s aren’t many places I shop at that are inexpensive! The shirts you got were CUTE! Love! Also, mental health is more important. I worked 3 jobs at once before myself and I rarely slept and was rather unhappy. It’s good to focus on your happiness!

  2. We love black so enjoyed looking at all the photos that you posted. Good luck with your future and we are glad you choose happiness first.


  3. I used to have to wear all black for work, from a black cap to black shoes. It was awful.
    I used to get all my stuff from Prinark, because they would ruin easily.
    Then, they change my position and I had to work weddings and they changed the dress code to wearing white blouses and fancy shoes. It annoyed me, as it was the same company and I had to buy my own and switch from black to white.

  4. I wore only black for years, then suddenly decided to switch it up with white and colors… only to realize one day that I didn’t even own a pair of black pants or a simple sweater anymore! I’ll have to re-stock 🙂
    Love the shirt low-cut in the back! I hate to show cleavage here in Korea so that looks like the perfect solution for the summer heat.
