Work Wear Wednesday

Alexa Chung For Madewell.

Of course, I could dedicate a life-time of posts to Alexa Chung's style, perhaps I will over time. But for today, I am posting some of her 'styling tips' as seen on the 'Madewell' website.
I was so excited when I stumbled upon this last night, she always gets it ever so right.

Firstly, yes, I always turn to a simple shirt when I don't know what else to wear to the office.
Secondly, I have a varied collection of denim shorts. I have never worn a pair to work, but may do now, after seeing Alexa pair them with a demure shirt and a nice blazer and broach..
Ah, if only I had those, wonderful, perfect legs of hers. (Time to start biking?)

(Photos are linked - Hit them for the rest of her Madewell looks.)

  5. I absolutely adore her greyish natty blazer she's wearing with denim shorts and a shirt. I would so love one like that! I just love Alexa so much, even though I don't think we'd get along if we were to ever meet... Btw, thanks for your sweet comment on my uni post, I'm so excited! :) xx

  7. I'm not sure if jean shorts would be the most appropriate for the office. I would try some in a tweed fabric, but not denim!

    It takes 10 hours to get there from where I live so I was travelling down during the day but I had to catch a 6.18am train when I came home again so I got to see that wonderful sunrise! :)

  9. These are super cute, all of them. If I had to choose one for myself, I'd go for the first one. There's something I adore about tucked in shirts!

    Hugs!

  21. she has the best style! It's not too over the top, yet just edgy enough for me to drool over everything she wears. Love it!
