Dress and jacket – People Tree
Shoes – Swedish Hasbeens
Work wear is kind of an essential part of my wardrobe and for me it is equally important that it has been ethically made as it is for all of the clothes that I wear. At the moment my work wardrobe consists of lots of charity shop dresses and cardigans along with a few dresses and jackets by People Tree and Nancy Dee. The picture above shows one of these outfits that I wore in the summer but I will also wear with tigts and boots for the winter. Both brands which are committed to ethical manufacture and feature comfy organic cotton pieces in their collection which I find work really well for work.
In the interests of sustainability, I try not to buy many clothes and also to invest in pieces that really last. But following a promotion (yay!) and increase in my hours last month, I have decided that I might need a few extra pieces to get me through the winter. Namely a pair of smart but comfy trousers (something I find really tricky to buy), a pair of boots and another cardigan or jacket as I have been feeling quite cold at work. Here are the pieces that I have invested in (contains affiliate links)
Loving the print and assymetric hem of the Lerwick Tencel Top which makes a change from the dark clothes I have in my wardrobe for autumn.
The tailored fit but soft and comfiness of the Mimi organic trousers looks like it could be a winning combo for work.
Seriously fed up dark clothes for auumn already. This Broderick Organic Cotton Throw add a pop of colour and some extra warmth.
On the boots front, I won’t lie I have struggled to find something, ethical, smart with the right heel height. I was really pleased when I finally found these TOMS shoes. Under the TOMS “one for one” model, for every pair of shoes sold, a pair of shoes goes to a child in need.
Where do you shop for workwear? I hope you are having a lovely weekend?
With warmest wishes
