I really like that Dorothy Perkins one, just a pity there doesn't seem to be any wool in it.

Trying to grow up and be practical.

The vogue thread isn't all high end stuff. I'm a high st girl. The main thing is that we get inspiration from each other, swap ideas etc. come and join us smile

H&m sizes can be ridiculous, I've got an xs jumper and size 12 jeggings but can't fit in their size 16 trousers?! confused
You need to try it all on don't you?

Ooh yes I'm after jumper dresses too please and nice cami tops. Tried a lovely one on in tesco but was far too clingy. Would like a fat tummy skimming one!

Uniqlo have some lovely merino v necked jumpers in lots of colours, at £30, they also have some skinny jeans. I haven't bought anything from there before, but when I get some pennies I am going to give them a whirl.

Has anybody got any recommendations for nice jumper dresses?

This h&m jumper is only £7.99! It's a good length, medium weight and lovely colours plus there's 25% off any item at the minute.

Snowy- that's the point, this thread can be where you get ideas!
Dancing- where do you get your jersey blazers from?

My go to smart casual is black or coloured[but not blue) skinny jeans(tidy ones) or trousers with healed ankle boots fitted top and jersey blazer or skater skirt(must be gutsy material!) with tights and knee high boots and nice jumper.
Or when it gets chillier nice sweater dress with tights and boots.

Great idea - my office is smart casual and I never feel I get it right. I'm either too corporate or too scruffy. Sadly, this means I have nothing to offer the thread.

Btw I know there's the vogue threads but this is more of a h&m thread winkgrin

I've decided to have a proper clear out of my wardrobe not just the usual shuffle around and really need to replace a lot for winter so I was wondering if anyone fancied a thread for a smart casual wardrobe? Links to clothing, ask questions, give suggestions?

If there's something like this already please point me there!
If not I'm happy to waffle away on my own! grin
