My work wardrobe at “work” work is pretty dull. Black dress, add a blazer here or there and some patterned pants on behind the scenes type days. If you follow Instagram you’d be forgiven for yawning every now and again as you see the favourites trotted out again and again. When I work for myself though, with the blog or consulting there’s a freedom to what I wear that I just don’t get mid-week. I get a chance to play around in my wardrobe and come up with my own personal take on professional. Chambray included.

It doesn’t mean I’m always happy with the result though…

Case in point. I love this dress. Love this preppy layered style. But there’s something not quite right about it. Looking at this outfit now I wish I’d gone with the shorter knit I originally had on in blue. This long sleeve t-shirt is comfortable and was a nice level of warmth but it doesn’t look the best. The jumper was going to be too hot for the humid Saturday. But maybe I should have suffered though… Hmmm. Maybe it’s that I’m not happy at all really with the photos. Or it could just be me coming down with some sort of bug that looks so flat, feedback welcomed!
