Buttoned Up In Charcoal

So recently I’ve been wanting to look further afield in terms of what I do, day in, day out. I’ve been applying for jobs & going on interviews but before I even began I took a good, long, hard look at my wardrobe & realised one very important thing. I needed some new interview dresses. Enter this gorgeous charcoal shirtdress. I was in town waiting for my friend to arrive so we could go to Spanish lessons & I wandered into Uniqlo – one of my favourite places for cheap & cheerful pieces.

I’d never really considered Uniqlo a good place for workwear that is until I spied this dress hanging innocently on the rail. It came in this shade, a fresh peachy orange hue & classic white. I honestly had a hard time choosing. I figured the charcoal shade would be more versatile – I could wear it to a job interview, to the office, on the weekend in a sort of ‘Roman Holiday’ style & in the cooler months with a sweater over the top. Done deal!
