What I'm Wearing This Weekend (WIWTW)

Having lived in London for almost six years now (jeez, how time flies) and shuttling down on the train to visit my friends and family fairly regularly, I'm slowly perfecting the art of packing. During uni, I used to heave massive suitcases around - having to practically throw them up and down the stairs at tube stations - and then I somehow managed to fit everything I needed for a weekend at home in a tote bag. Yes, really. This year, I've been doing just fine with a weekender from Zara Man (that looks a little like this, but was under a third of the price) that fits all my essentials (straighteners, shoes, coats, laptops and even bottles of wine, etc) around a capsule wardrobe.

This weekend, I'm heading home to see my parents, catch up with friends and meet a new baby. As always, I'm heading home straight from work today and heading straight back into work on Monday morning, and so I adapt my work-wear for weekend-wear to make things work for different occasions (work, cocktails, baby holding - you name it).

What I Wore Today - 22032013

I'm not a big trouser wearer - I bought my first pair of jeans in six years last year - but this week, on somewhat of a whim, I ended up buying four pairs of trousers, including these fab 'seven-eighths length' polka dot ones above (chilly ankles!). Today, I've teamed them with a black chiffon tshirt (from Zara, rather than the Topshop one shown above), my trusty boots (I don't wear flats anymore) and a camel blazer. My go-to Zara bag and many rings make their stalwart appearance, and I've been loving bright peach/coral lips this week. With my trademark smokey eyes and messy hair, I've been channelling Brigitte Bardot. (Outfit completed with Illamasqua's Fragile (my review here).)

I fell in love with another polka dot dress but wasn't so sure on the price tag. I picked up the one above this week and whilst it looks a little mumsy, the length definitely isn't, and as a fit it's a dupe for the smock. I plan to wear this tomorrow for previously-mentioned babyholding duties and then seeing my mum. Whilst weekends are definitely meant for relaxing, it doesn't mean my wardrobe has to - you won't be seeing any joggers here, I'm afraid!
