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

Style Steal

You must think Im stark raving mad writing about Floral and Mixing prints again if you saw two previous posts of mine regarding similar topics.  But this time its different. A few reasons why.

1) I was going to add these gorgeous shoes in my last Floral post here, BUT this is such a brilliant style steal I decided that they needed their own individual airtime. I hope you agree?

2) I thought at the same time I would include some inspirational pics to help you along with ideas and how to style your florals. Don’t be afraid to mix them up.

3) If you read a previous post about mixed prints here and you think I have gone mixed print mad then you are correct, I have! And it feels good!

So the style steal is Mary Katrantzou vs Ted Baker

1. Ted Baker Shoes £120 // 2. Mary Kantrantzou Shoes Net-a-porter  £445

Do NOT be afraid to mix prints, wear your pretty floral shoes with a cropped pair of floral trousers or tone it down by wearing a plain coloured skirt with a printed blouse. See some inspirational pics below.
