The Working Week

So many people say that they don’t like spending money on work clothes and they despise getting dressed for work.  Most people work 5 day weeks, this means you spend 80% of your time at work, that’s a lot of time spent not dressing well and feeling uninspired.  So if you want to look good 100% of the time, you had better spend more time on your work wardrobe…

I personally love work wear, I love dressing smartly but with an edge, it can also be fun with gorgeous heels and flats alike, tailored jackets, sexy skirts, lavish blouses and structured handbags, what is not to love about that?

Monday – Not quite ready to let go of the weekend, start the week off fresh with a statement necklace and Nectar Bag
