OOTD - Cosy Work Wear

When I woke up this morning my phone told me it was -5 outside! I cannot tell you how difficult it was to drag my self out of my warm bed and into the shower. Its days like today I really wish I could work from home!

I work in a very old Victorian converted townhouse, which has a very old victorian heating system so it can be pretty baltic in the office with my trusty electric heater providing little comfort. Some days the heating will sputter into action and turn the usual baltic conditions practically tropical!
There really is no way of knowing how warm or cold it is going to be on a day-to-day basis.

So I dress accordingly! Light layers, easy to remove or add to depending on the mood of the heating on that day.

Dress - George at Asda - £5 (sale)
Cardigan - Peacocks £10 (sale)
Black leggings - Sainsburys
Boots - Blog sale over at My Plus Size Wardrobe.
Necklace - Vintage shop in Newcastle about 5 years ago for about £2

Today I am wearing one of my favourite dresses, it was a sale item from George at asda and fits me really well. I love the ditzy print and shape of it, it is super flattering. The cardigan was a recent Peacocks purchase and is the warmest thing ever! I love the thick texture and plummy brown colour.

I feel really comfy and warm in this ensemble, but still fashionable and work appropriate.

I have also recently started adding texture and a slight curl to my hair using my GHD straighteners! I love the relaxed curl it gives you. Anyone else do this?
