Working Week: Outfit of the Day

Before I get into my outfits too much, I think it's not a bad idea to set the scene for my working week.

I run a medium sized private company in the health industry. I don't want to be overly specific because I don't believe it's necessary and this blog has nothing to do with my working life - if anything, this blog is kind of an escape from my working life! Basically, I work in an office and I have a great deal of freedom in what I wear.

What I wear to work varies from day to day. If I have a lot of meetings, I will tend to go for a very traditional look: black dress or pencil skirt and blouse, black pumps, suit jacket or blazer and classic handbag.

Black and marigold:
Skirt: Carl Kapp
Blouse: Joie
Shoes: Bally Clea pumps
Belt: YSL black patent square buckle
Bag: Anya Hindmarch Carker

Other days when I might be running around to various appointments or just overseeing the day to day, I like the fact that I have the freedom to scale things back to a fairly simply, practical look: neat blouse or top, comfortable black trousers and flats or loafers.

Country Road black skinny trousers
Tods tan loafers

My feet look very far away in this shot...

Today I have a fair bit of running around to do outside  of the office but no meetings so I'm actually very relaxed. These shoes are classic Tod's loafers which I have had for years but haven't worn for a very long time - I love it when you get to bust something out of your closet that you haven't worn in ages :) xo
