A Rainy Day – Friday Casual Work Outfit

For the past 3 days it’s been raining non-stop : I kid you not! Not only it’s been wet but even worse – it’s been chilly too. I’ve been dreading every morning…


Because I have nothing suitable to wear for this weather!

It’s all my fault because I’ve been procrastinating & I haven’t yet swapped my Summer clothes to the Winter ones. It’s a process I loathe! Every day I promise myself that I will swap-over as soon as I get back from work. What really happens is that I get home, change, & ‘invent’ every other chore to do & totally ‘forget’ to start the change over…until the morning!

So I’ve been ‘inventing’ warmer outfits by using my Summer pieces.

Do you remember this dress? It’s the rainy dress which I wore here! I was not joking when told you that I will abuse this dress.  I might (I did) have worn it 3 days on a row & I’m already sad knowing that this weekend it has to go into hybernation until next Spring/Summer.

I still shock myself everytime I wear this dress. Not in a million years I would have thought I’d ever buy a dress this style & in this pattern before starting this blog. I’m really enjoying trying out new styles & patterns. It’s so much fun really discovering that I can wear certain styles. And YOU are still on time to get one too: it’s still available & on sale at ASOS online.

Today I decided for a casual outfit for work so I added a pair of black tights, a black faux leather jacket, a pair of booties & gold accessories to my giraffes & zebras dress. My hair needs a good cut…so apologies for the crazy fringe!

What do you think? Yay or Nay?


Faux Leather Jacket (old Promod): Here’s a Leather Black Jacket which I’ve been eyeing; it’s from G.Star



Micheal Kors Watch & Bracelet (old) – Here’s 2 another cool options: Watch & Bracelet!


Necklace (old H&M) – Similar Necklace

Nails: OPI Red My Fortune Cookie


Here’s another Cognac Bag which I would like –  A Michael Kors: click here!

Booties (old from New Look) Here’s a similar pair in brown from Wallis which I like too!


 The black faux leather jacket has been a great buy & I’ve worn all year round. It deserves a break so I need to buy another one: This time a cognac leather jacket. I’ve been lusting over a few jackets. The list was longer than me but I managed to narrow it to my 6 favorite ones.

As always I can never take a decision because I would like to buy them ALL.
Slightly impossible; isn’t it!

Which one would you buy? I’d love to know PLEASE!!

      Thank you for your comment! I totally loathe swap out …it’s finally done & dusted!
      I do love the purse …and I have wearing with everything. It’s such a ‘neutral’ colour that I feel goes with most outfits I wear.

    I say you should go for the pepe jeans one. I love the side sliding zipper idea. It gives any outfit an edge.
