What I Wore – Clements

The act of getting dressed in the morning turns into quite a ‘battle of the brains’ on days I don’t have to leave the home office. While I am a big believer in one’s outer layers contributing to their state of mind, the temptation to spend a day in a onesie (with a blazer for Skype calls, obviously) is undeniable.

The compromise? Shiny, slick pieces with just enough structure to send your Boss Brain into overdrive.

What I Wore:
Oversized blazer from Clements Ribeiro (similar here)
Necklace from QVC (similar here)
Black silk dress (similar here)
Silver ballerinas from Fitflop

What I Wore – I’m Yelling Timber

I’m not sure what kind of images you associate with the brand Timberland, but my very hypervisual brain sees everything from 90s rappers to hard-working Midwesterners. Not me. Not my own shoe closet.

Here I am, eating my own brain juice. Pray tell: when exactly did Timberland boots get so attractive?

What I Wore:
Pink collared shirt (similar here)
Second Female coat
Autumnal floral scarf (similar here)
Timberland Rangeley boots from Get The Label
Zara leggings (similar here)

What I Wore – Tis The Season

red and white outfit post
My adolescent discovery of red lipstick was something of a game changer. Like celebrating ten Christmases at once…on the mouth.

Boy, do I excel at awkward wording.

Lipstick aside, red has never really been a colour of choice. I have spent a ruling number of years with rosy cheeks and ginger curls, meaning red often felt like overkill.

This season? With this blonde? And this satchel? I can’t be kept away.

What I Wore:
The 15-inch satchel from Cut Make Trim
This little number from Get The Label (belt removed, white belt added)
The trusty ol’ Loubous (similar here)
Vintage red jacket (similar here)

What I Wore – Checking In

checked retro dress
I don’t tend to pack very many ‘pretty things’ when heading off for business trips. While I would if I could, the care and attention needed for my ‘nicer’ items is rarely suitcase friendly.

I have, however, found compromise in Boden. Their dresses are gloriously retro, well made, statement making, and easy to pack – all in one. With less than 48 hours to get from wedding, to business meetings, to Halloween parties, and more, Boden became my saving grace.

What I Wore:
Checked blue dress – The Amy – from Boden
Vintage blue heels (dream version here)

What I Wore – Tom Ford Eyes

Have you ever discovered sunglasses so perfect you buy them in the darkest months of the year? This lady has.

Say hello to my brand new Tom Ford Lana superspy shades (from the sunglass superstore that is SmartBuyGlasses).

To keep my eyes feeling happy after multiple laser surgeries, I have been wearing a selection of old school sunglasses, then throwing them in my handbag in the evening. Naturally, this has resulted in some wear and tear. To combat the issue, I have been wearing my Tom Fords from sunrise to sundown, then tucking them into their uber luxe suede case like a responsible adult.

It must be love.
