Fashion Day & Friday’s Favourites

Fashion Day & Friday’s Favourites

I missed out on our regular Fashion Day yesterday but thought I should amalgamate both Fashion Day and Friday’s Favourites together, seeing as my favourites this week are pieces I’m loving from my wardrobe.

Last a Friday was my first day of my second round of teaching placement. I’ve covered what I planned to wear in last week’s Fashion Day post, so now that I’m a week into my placement, it’s only right that I share two of my favourite and practical pieces that I’ve been wearing so far.

The No-Iron Skirt

While I’ve got quite a few pieces of pencil skirts that I’ve been wearing, my favourites would have to be the ones from Sussan and Popbasic. They are both comfortable to wear – no need to suck in my tummy or the need to wear control briefs – and best of all, I don’t have to iron them! They don’t crease, so I still look fresh at the end of the day. Ok, so not my face but more my outfit ;). I think it’s the elastane that’s in the Sussan skirt that gives it that nice comfort, fit and non-crease factor. With the one from Popbasic, it’s the gorgeous rayon and spandex.

The BIG Bag

I carried all my important and necessary teaching paraphernalia in the bright orange bag at my last placement. This time round, I knew I needed something bigger, because if I stuffed anything else in the orange bag, I know that would be the end of it; for sure! And I love that bag!

Louenhide Shopper


Excuse my outfit, I was getting into the spirit of “pyjama day”

Luckily for me, I also have this bag, a really large shopper from Louenhide that I had won from a competition I had entered previously on Beautyholics Anonymous! When I say really large, I wasn’t kidding. Look at the size, relative to my body! It fits the school netbook, my files, lunchbag, iPad, and it even comes with a separate bag inside where I could keep my more personal belongings like my wallet, keys, phone and ‘monthly necessities’. It is sturdy, and comes in a classic black faux crocodile skin on the outside. I think this would make a fabulous travel bag too, for any short trips or a great “carry on” luggage.

That’s it for this week’s Fashion Day and Friday’s Favourites mash up. Tell me, what has been your favourite wardrobe pieces this week?

I’m also joining in for Kim-Marie’s weekly Wardrobe Wednesday and Rachel’s 30 Plus Style and Beauty link ups. Do check the other ladies who have joined in this week.
