Sometimes I miss getting dressed everyday, to go to work outside my home. Being a blogger, means I can work from anywhere, wearing anything, but I am also a stay at home mum, which comes first, so working from the local cafe for example, won’t be quite ideal in my current situation. Which means I do most of my blog work from home, wearing my home clothes, nothing fancy at all. So you can see why, on some days, I miss getting suited up in a fitted blazer and jeans, like I use to.
Depending on what you do for a living, it is advisable to have your workwear, casual and formal outfits in sync, so it doesn’t look like you are living separate lives, wardrobe-wise, and so you can wear your pieces for various events. This is why you need as many versatile pieces and accessories as possible.
I am inspired by some new pieces in stores at the moment, and I see myself getting some of them. Even if I work from home, and I see no reason why I should type a blog post wearing a blazer, these pieces would be great for events and meetings with clients, which I seem to be having quite a lot of lately.
Here are some workwear pieces that have caught my eye:
Olivia Single Breasted Herringbone Jersey Blazer
This fitted tweed grey jersey blazer by Joules is right up my street. It looks soft and feels comfortable to wear, it has a classic fitted look, which I love, and the touch of pink on the collar, just wins. I can picture myself wearing this with a pair of black skinny jeans, and a pink shirt, like the shirt pictured below. Perfect for the office and perfect for my client meetings. It is an investment piece. You can grab this versatile piece for £99.95.
Kingstonstrap Slim Fit Stretch Shirt
I adore slim fitted shirts. They usually look so pretty with skinny jeans or trousers, and they look good either tucked in or out, depending on the event and the look you are going for. This pink tailored shirt by Joules gives a flattering fit, it is a keeper. You can grab this shirt for £49.95.
Black Monroeblack Skinny Jeans
I am a sucker for a good pair of skinny jeans. I think they are the foundation piece to a capsule wardrobe, and they are super versatile too. You can rock a pair of skinny jeans to work with a shirt, blazer and heels, or throw a jumper with a pair of boots or sneakers. It works either way. This Joules pair is super stretchy and super flattering, and you can grab yours for £59.95.
UMADOSA Black Heels
A classic black shoe is perfect for anything. It can take you from a wedding to the pub, and this pair by Aldo, can do just that. I love the attention to detail, with the addition of a sleek metal-accented heel. It is a beauty. You can grab this pair for £65.
