Brown and navy: a classic workwear outfit, Oasis brown coat, Finery navy trousers, Jennifer Hamley Model KT bag

A classic workwear outfit for me is a simple trousers and fitted jumper combination. I’m so happy that I bagged these Finery trousers at less than half price 🙂 They’re still available at Asos for only £32 and they are worth every penny! Adding a pair of good quality navy or black trousers to your wardrobe will serve you well; they pair with just about any colour for a no fuss smart work outfit. I first wore these trousers on the blog a few weeks ago with a red coat and boots, but I opted for a more muted palette on this occasion. I particularly like the mix of navy and the warm brown coat, which looks vibrant in the bright sunshine.

Turtlenecks are my favourite style of sweater because they’re both practical and versatile.

Eager to add more brown tones to my outfits, I picked up this lovely jumper in River Island a couple of weeks ago. Turtlenecks are my favourite style of sweater because they’re both practical and versatile. Choosing one in a soft, fine knit ensures maximum comfort. The sleeves on this one really caught my eye; the gathering on the shoulders and ribbed cuffs with the frills create an interesting shape. It’s also available in cream, blue and black (the blue and black are now reduced from £26 to £12, although sizes are limited).


My trusty Jennifer Hamley Model KT bag holds my laptop and other essentials. Although I also have it in orange and teal, I tend to use this aubergine bag the most. I kept my jewellery simple with one of my favourite rings from Pia and a bracelet that my Dad bought for me on a recent trip to Madeira.

The sun may have been shining but there was a very cold wind yesterday when we shot these photos. Winter isn’t quite done with us yet!
