I can't believe it's not Peacocks...

Hello! another work filled week for me so I only have a boring work outfit to share with you. This dress is not from Peaocks... not all of my dresses are from there, honest! This is a dress from Tesco which I bought a while a go but it's a little too formal for me, I prefer something floral with a bright cardi but it's nice to wear something smart to work sometimes. I have mentioned before that photos are a great way to see if something looks right, next time I will wear this with a more cropped cardigan as this waterfall one is a bit shapeless. I've had this belt for ages but I've never worn it, I'm trying to think of more things to pair it with because it's rather nice.

Dress: Tesco
Cardi: asda
Belt: Wallis
Shoes: Very

What do you wear to work? I find it tricky to dress for work because I don't have a dress code and all the students come in the library looking fab and I don't want to look like a scruff.

Here are a few vintage events in Cardiff coming up soon which you might like to attend- We Love Vintage Fair, Catwalk for a Cause and Pontcanna Vintage and Handmade Fair.

  1. I love this outfit!! Luckily my library is the medical school one so they are often wearing scrubs. hehe :)

  2. How funny, this dress is about to apear in one of my posts very soon! I think it's lovely which is I bought one too lol

  3. I really like the dress, the print is really different to what you usually wear, but this is not a bad thing. You could see about adding a bit of colour through accessories xx

  4. Great outfit! I have bought clothes from Tescos too, although some people are a bit 'snobbish' about it for want of a better word. Photos are a great way of seeing if an oufit looks right...but I look chubby all the time :( xx

  5. I loved that dress when I saw it but it IS quite formal! I would love to see it paired with those gorgeous purpley shoes (maybe from your last post?) or with red accessories, I love the impact that red can have!

  6. I love the simplicty of this outfit, sometimes its nice just to wear black and white. Tescos do some great clothes dont they?

  7. ooh vintage events! exciting :D
    you look amazing!
    i looooove this belt <333333333

  8. @Rosie- I don't think I have many local readers but I thought you might like tto know about events :)

    @Maria- I have just the thing! A red hairband with a flower on and my Vivienne Westwood necklace has red in. I will try that out next time :)

    Nothing wrong with a bit of Tescos :) all my cardis come from asda, I find that they wash really well. Much better than h&m ones I payed twice the price for xx

  9. You look really good! i love your shoes x

  10. I love this dress, your waist looks really small in this pic :)
    I have blouses provided in work so just wear it with black trousers. Feel a bit crap at times, wearing the same old thing all the time, but on the plus side it saves a lot of worrying about what to wear and a lot of money! x

  11. I remember seeing this dress online on the tesco website and coveting it! I love it. I like to dress smart for work too, we don't really have a dress code just no jeans or trainers which I never wear anyway but I like to differentiate from workwear and non-work wear.

  12. There's a dress very similar to yours in Asda at the moment, there was a page in the latest Woman's Own (which I swear I didn't buy, it's my mums!) that shows you four different ways to style it all of which are great.

    I know what you mean about something being too formal but you pull it off really well!

  13. this dress is gorgeous and you look totally fab and very unscruffy

  14. I can't believe it, I just wrote a massive comment about dressing for work and it didn't go through! Ugh.

    I really like that dress, though I agree with you about the cardi length. I find pictures helpful in that way too, it's funny how they're more revealing than a mirror.

  15. Sometimes I think it's harder to dress for something when a dress code is not applied. I think you always look very put together and I'm sure nobody coming into your library would think otherwise. :)

  16. i love tesco clothing at the moment, there are a LOT of dresses in this summer's collection which are on my list !

  17. you look adorable :) tesco have some great stuff in right now!x
