5 Very Real Commuting Outfits

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Promise promise promise this is the last post where I’ll harp on about OMG DID YOU KNOW I COMMUTED INTO LONDON FOR TWO WEEKS LOL?

I just wanted to give you an insight into my working wardrobe. And when I say working wardrobe, I mean outfits that I wore to a workplace without a dress code. Outfits that were designed to keep me warm on a train with the stingiest of central heating systems, outfits that were supposed to be comfortable enough to walk the half hour stride between Liverpool Street and Southwark, and outfits that were supposed to hold up whilst I was sweating from every facial pore because WHY IS THIS OFFICE BLOCK STUFFIER THAN THE SUN.

You’ll have to excuse my, ahem, face.

I did my make up in a 7 minute slot between stations every morning and it did not leave me looking cute and Instagram-famous. Nuh uh.

Oh, and ignore my hair too. We call that look the dry-shampoo-and-go look.

Flippin heck I miss curling tongs and hair oil and lookin’ like a fly, sassy kinda chick.

Anyway, here’s what I wore last week. I hope there’s at least one time detail of one of these looks that doesn’t make you do a mental gag at me. Lol ha k bye.

MONDAY

Erm, least I was megz comfy, alright?

I’m obsessed with this ASOS knit at the moment and love the blue shade which goes with everything but is the sneakiest little bit more exciting that grey or cream.

I love how slouchy this look is, it’s my perfect Sunday brunch and a long country walk get-up, combined with a biker jacket and giant blanket scarf.

TUESDAY

Chris calls this look my dinner lady look. Mildly embarrassing because I can see where he’s coming from, FFS.

This dress is a summer fave from Beyond Retro and I’ve been layering it up either with this roll neck or with shirts to make it more season-practical.

WEDNESDAY

I think this fella is my fave mostly because I’m STILL obsessed with this coat, even after two years (innit weird how some new pieces you cast aside as if they’re rags after like a week and other pieces you come back to again and again?).

Anyway, yeah, sweatshirts are my boo all year round, and this one I designed on GarmentPrinting.co.uk is my boo. There’s something about the grey and pink shades clashing against the monochrome print that makes me soul pleased.

THURSDAY

I already featured this cute lil monochrome number last week because of the oh-so-charitable hat. But I’ve been living in the jumpsuit since – I’ve just got back from Devon and it made THE dreamiest lounging about with wine and snacks little boo.

I’ve also been layering my gilet collection over my leather biker jacket repeatedly. It makes me feel a *bit* like an off-duty model even when my body is saying something entirely different…

FRIDAY

No, YOU have ultimate hair goals.

ROFL.

It was a bit windy alright?

I love the colour of this coat for adding something a little bit snazzy to an otherwise bland outfit. I like that the shape is classic and makes me look a little bit more crisp and smart than I feel in reality with veins crammed with Pret coffee and homemade protein balls.

  • LOVE that blue coat you wore on Friday. Super cute! I also love everything about Thursday’s outfit. SO cute. SO wish I could pull off a jumpsuit. I’ve tried SO MANY. Alas, I’m just too damn short/ frumptastic.
