New Work Uniform
Today I started my new job at Joules. I had a great time learning how to use the till which is something that I have always wanted to know how to do, and all the staff are lovely so I am so excited for my next shift. But the most exciting part of today was getting to pick my outfit. I had £100 to spend on clothes and then £50 to spend on accessories. How amazing is that?!
I decided that I would just get some tops as I can wear my own jeans as part of my uniform. So I thought I would show you everything that I got. It’s like another haul, apart from I didn’t have to pay for any of it which is even better!
For those of you that don’t really know the brand Joules it is quite a smart brand, similar to Crew. I would describe the style as being smart, preppy and lots of stripes. So basically perfect for me. But despite that it is not a place that I shop at too often. It can be quite expensive, especially for a student and it is aimed at a slightly older target market then myself.
However I found so many things in the store that I really liked and it was hard to get it down to just these four tops. I can already tell that I am going to be getting good use out of my 50% staff discount!
The first top that I picked out was this t-shirt that I had spotted when I first went for my interview. It’s just a simple grey tee that fits so well and say “Oh I do like to be beside the seaside” in gold. I just thought this was so cute and perfect for summer.
I also picked out this lovely simple grey necklace. This looks so lovely with all of my stripey tops and I think I will wear this for evening outfits too.
I love the combination of these two. So simple yet so pretty.
And the other three tops that I got turned out to be the same just in different colours! But I absolutely love the fit and the quality of these tops and for £25 I think they are very well priced. I picked up a navy and white, a pink and white and a navy and white block colour one. Yes they are very similar and I probably could have been a bit more adventurous. But I know I will get so much wear out of these, not just for work. And they will look great layered under jumpers and cardigan of over a little shirt with the collar poking out, which is very Joules!
So I feel like I have satisfied my stripes obsession, at least for now! And I still have another £20 to spend on accessories so I might look at the scarves next time. Hope you liked this post. I’m not sure how exciting it will actually be to read for other people but I am just so excited that I got so much lovely quality new clothes without having to spend a penny!
I did also make another little purchase today! Typical me spending money before I have even been paid. But this is something that I have had my eye on for a while and it started selling out very quickly so I just went for it and bought it. No regrets and all that! So I can’t wait to share that with you in a separate post coming soon. xx
