Looking smart but letting your personality shine through when dressing for a boring office job you hate can be a toughie, so this outfit goes out to all the people who have 'normal' jobs but would rather die than don a pair of capri trousers and a hideous bra shirt.

Starting with the very smart Dorothy Perkins' tulip skirt I've added the two-tone silk top for a deceptively expensive looking ensemble. A pair of gold lace-ups is stylish and quirky without sacrificing comfort; the men's watch throws a bit of geek into the mix and makes a great statement piece. Wood earrings provide some textural contrast, and my favourite piece, the vintage football rosette, screams "I'm better than this!" Full product links after the jump.
