The upside of wearing an ugly work uniform


I really haven't been shopping in months. I have been a very good girl and have been saving my pennies and just living vicariously through blogs and magazines. I must say, since getting a work uniform a year ago, I haven't felt nearly as often that I have 'no clothes!'. I think that's because when you wear clothes daily and use your everyday clothes as part of your work wardrobe, you quickly become sick of them. I now find that I often think 'I love that and haven't worn it in ages' probably because I really don't have many opportunities anymore to create outfits. Which I think just makes me enjoy it more and put more effort into it when I do get the chance.

It also makes shopping a whole lot more fun. Gone are the days where I would scan a cute shop for things that would be work appropriate. I now can buy whichever fun and frivolous things I want. No dress codes or conservative bosses to worry about. How exciting!

This week though, I ventured to the shops 3 times in 4 days (!) and came out with some great finds that I will post throughout the week. As much fun as it is to discover new things in your existing wardrobe, it can't ever top the fun of a shiny new thing to take home with you!


I hope you all had a great weekend. Do you have any new buys or finds to share?

Some of the fun and frivolous things I could buy if I so desired. Not an office-appropriate blouse or court shoes in sight!

  7. “I think that's because when you wear clothes daily and use your everyday clothes as part of your work wardrobe, you quickly become sick of them.”—this is so true! Especially if you're on a tight budget, there's a big chance you'll be able to don outfit repeats. A bummer, indeed. Anyway, you have a great point there. Thanks for sharing your thoughts about this.
