I miss fashion, style, getting dressed up with a purpose. Anyone else feeling like this? For the first couple of weeks I thought, great, I can spend all day in sweats without a care in the world. Now, I’m desperate to put on a maxi dress, some espadrille wedges and my hoop earrings, welcoming the spring sun.
My usual day to day looks weren’t formal office wear, but still conservative. My go to are a floral midi with black heeled boots. But not any black heeled boot, of course they had a leopard print heel. When I found these boots my friend and I knew straight away they were perfect for me, and very reasonable price!
On special days when I felt the office of 20 men and 4 women really needed brightening up I would pop on my pink loafers. I have had many comments on these shoes, mainly office jokes about where did I find a pink crocodile.
Out of Office
In all honesty, my out of office style doesn’t change much from my office. I always love a floaty dress, but I generally substitute in some trainers.
There is just nothing more comfortable than chucking on a floaty dress, some trainers, a statement earring, grabbing a cute handbag, maybe an oversized teddy coat in the winter and floating around the streets.
Why change the habits that I love. My style. Me.
When lounging around the house a dress is just as comfortable as sweats, no waistband, let alone an elasticate one! Trainers are perfect for the daily walk. I barely even need a handbag. And a nice earring switches a no make-up, lazy hair day to a slightly put together look.
Today I have treated myself to update my spring wardrobe. I started browsing trusty Zara after having been influenced by Sara Tankel Ellis from We Are Twinset. Off I went into the depths of Zara and these are the gems I found and ordered!
Green and White Spot Midi Dress – £25.99
Ruffle Floral Wrap Mini – £25.99 – I also have this in the black and white polka dot already which is super cute!
Some blazers I also came across, I got the light pink cropped tweed blazer. I’m only 5ft 3 so cropped are better for me.
