What can I wear with a pink dress?

So it’s Friday again and I’ve been doing more shopping research for professional clothing for women!
It can take a lot of looking to find pieces that tick all the boxes when it comes to work wear. If I’m choosing dresses I only go for knee length or lower and with a not too low neckline. It’s always great if there is a sleeve of sorts, especially as we get into the colder months.

This time some pink dresses caught my eye. For me grey is the perfect colour to be styled with pink. You have the smart conventional calm grey against the pink pop of personality.

Post Pink Party

A few pics from last nights charity event with Ellisons Solicitors. The evening was to raise money for Breast Cancer Awareness. The evening themed on pink was a big success with the raffle raising £500! The total raised on the evening by everyone was £700.

We were in the lovely location of the Wivenhoe House Hotel.
There was other companies with stalls at the evening one of whom was a friend of mine who does very nice cakes (Pause for Torte). These are just some she made for the evening:

Seven Colour Combination Ideas for the Office

Combining colour into a working outfit should not be difficult.

Firstly you need to pick one highlight colour that suits you like pink, red, blue or yellow. Then choose the base colour or matching colour that you will work with such as black, navy or brown (this could be a suit separate or a dress).
Here I have chosen pink as the highlight colour and navy as the base colour. You can always add white or black as neutrals if you need to (see the white shirts and skirt I have added).
