A Week At Work In Dorothy Perkins | Wednesday
this blog post is in collaboration with Dorothy Perkins

More and more companies are supporting flexi-working, and giving people the opportunity to work from home if they wish. Before I left my job in Insurance, I worked from home quite often and I must admit at first I found it easy to sit at my desk in my PJ’s all day, but I quickly began to notice a trend forming. If I didn’t get myself dressed into a smart outfit for the day, my motivation for work started to slip. It was almost as though I felt I’d let myself down and hadn’t made the effort to show up for work properly. After this realisation, I always made sure I made the same effort I would if I wasn’t working from home. 

I’ve learnt the same applies both in and out of the office, a great outfit motivates me throughout the day. Obviously, when I’m working from home I take a more laid back approach to dressing for the day, but I still always make sure I look smart.

In today’s a Week At Work In Dorothy Perkins, I’m sharing how you can easily put together a quick, professional yet comfortable look for a day working from home. 


I worked this look around these beautiful geometric ankle grazer trousers which I completely fell in love with as soon as I laid eyes on them. Patterns are a must for a workwear wardrobe, as they’re the easiest way of injecting style into an outfit. They’re high waisted and easy to move around in – two things I look for in trousers! To keep my look casual and also because I want to be cosy during the day, I threw on this camel crew neck jumper which is ridiculously soft and snuggly. 

To finish off the look, and also in case I need to run some errands during lunch, I slipped on these navy court heels. I’m such a “heels” girl, and would choose them over flats every single day of the week. I’ve always felt more empowered and confident wearing heels, so I’ve always worn them with everything! Block heels are a must for me at work, as they provide more support and help me last an entire day in them! 

What I love about this look is how easy I can mix and match the pieces to create lots of separate looks for both at work and the weekend. These trousers would look ultra-chic with a white silk blouse tucked in, or even with a white slogan tee and trainers outside of the 9-5.
