Work hard, play hard*

This year, I've taken a year out from university to do a work placement for a year. It's been difficult, working my first real full-time job, but it comes with a few perks. Namely, I have 24 days of holiday and a hell of a lot more disposable income than I've ever had before. So, I've been spending a lot of time travelling and making plans with my friends to unwind from days at the office.
But first, let me show you a couple of outfits I've been wearing to work recently, which were kindly gifted to me by Femme Luxe.

When this jumpsuit arrived, I fell in LOVE with it. It was perfectly fitted to my body (I got a size 8 but I'm usually between an 8 and a 10, so if you're choosing between 2 sizes I'd recommend going for smaller). It also had a high neckline, which is really important to me in work as I don't like to have my chest on show too much. The only thing I would say is that if you're uncomfortable about your upper arms (as I know a few people are), I'd recommend staying away from this style as the sleeves are a lot shorter than I thought they would be.
I liked the look of this jumpsuit so much that I decided to get it in a gorgeous rust colour too!

I did like this jumpsuit, but it felt slightly less flattering than the black. This could just be the colour (black is DEFINITELY my colour), but I do also think that the fit was a little different.
Now for the fun stuff. Although these jumpsuits would work perfectly for a day to night outfit as they're so lovely, Femme Luxe also has some amazing evening wear which would be perfect for evenings out with friends at dinner or partying.
First off, another jumpsuit. But this time, it's a gorgeous asymmetric neckline which shows a lot more skin than the ones above. In addition to this piece being fabulous, I was also completely blown away by the quality - it hugged my figure and smoothed out my body with its thick material. I wore it to dinner with my boyfriend when we celebrated our 2 year anniversary. You can see from the photos below how happy and confident I was when wearing it on the night!

It was an amazing night out at Inamo in Camden, paired with an amazing boyfriend and an amazing jumpsuit. This is by far my favourite piece gifted to me by Femme Luxe, and I've spotted a few more colours of the same jumpsuit on their site which I will definitely be getting soon!
The final piece I want to show you guys is a white lace bodysuit. I was dubious about getting it at first, because I wondered whether it would be a little too see-through to wear out. But, this didn't end up being a worry, as I decided to pair it with a light blue and white striped shirt, slightly unbuttoned so the lace just showed through.

I thought this was a perfect way to style the bodysuit, but of course if you're feeling more confident it would also look amazing paired with some high-waisted trousers or mom jeans for a night out! 
Thanks for reading! Sorry for the lack of posts recently - as I mentioned at the beginning I have been really busy with my placement (although I finish in July!) and using my spare time to see friends. However, I have started a new blog called Voss Voyages, where I have been documenting my travels over the last few months. If you're interested in reading that sort of content, definitely go over and have a look and drop me a follow, especially as I'm planning a trip to Ibiza for my birthday in May and then to Australia and New Zealand over the summer! Exciting stuff!
Bye for now,

*Disclaimer: these clothes were, as I mentioned in this blog post, gifted to me by Femme Luxe. But, the opinions I have shared are my own and I really was impressed by the quality of the items, after being initially dubious of just another fast fashion site.
