Spring Workwear OOTDs

I've just experienced this dilemma for the first time - the weather improves and workwear becomes a nightmare! No longer do I feel my "uniform" of black trousers, shirt and cardigan or a shift dress are suitable and they feel a bit stuffy so here's my take on smart spring workwear.



Left picture: Trousers - Miss Selfridge £38; Sheer chiffon shirt - Topshop £34. Here I'm wearing roll leg chinos and a sheer shirt which I think can work for even a formal dress environment if you wear a vest top under. My favourite vest tops are from Marks & Spencer where they are around £12 and have a built in bra to make sure they are always appropriate!

Right picture: Trousers - Miss Selfridge £38; Shirt - Dorothy Perkins £14. Here I'm wearing camel coloured paper bag wasited peg legs. I love peg legs, I think they're really flattering and very comfortable. I really liked this look, and this Dotty P's shirt is my work staple! It's fab and actually very thick which is unusual for white shirts.

I have been wearing these looks with my gorgeous Dorothy Perkins loafers that I've been going on and on about! They're reduced to £25 in store although it says £32 online.


What do you think of my looks? I'm giving a small lecture on the career path to psychology for first years at Portsmouth Uni next week - which one should I wear?
