WORK WEAR SERIES 1

.
Long time no outfit post!  To be honest, I’ve been struggling with this blog thing.  Working full time and a having a busy personal life doesn’t leave me with much left over for blogging and Instagramming.  Not only do I lack the time, but the creative energy and daylight hours.
.
So in trying to come up with a way to reconcile what I love doing (fashion and creating content) with what I actually spend most of my time doing (working), I came up with the idea of creating a blog series around work wear.  As much as I love to wear ripped jeans and sneakers on the weekend, 5 days out of 7 I work in a law firm and have to dress fairly corporate.  I’ve worked in a few different offices over the last 10 years, and have pretty much narrowed down some failsafe outfits that I can throw together in the morning when I’m just not feeling it (which is most days) but still look reasonably polished.
.
The silk blouse, trousers and loafers combination is one of my favourites.  It requires very little thought, but instantly makes me look put together.  I have a great collection of silk shirts in different colours, but white is always my first choice.  This blouse by The Fable is the perfect cut and colour.  A white shirt is a must-have in anyone’s work wardrobe, it’s just so versatile.  I love it with a pair of relaxed wool trousers (like these Everlane ones), but also tucked into a leather pencil skirt, or with a pair of jeans for casual Friday.

  • Oh man, I feel you with the whole blogging and full time work thing. It’s so hard, and I definitely don’t have energy on weeknights so it’s always weekend work for me. Loving this outfit too! X
