I haven’t been restricted in the way I dress for the last six years, and I’m beginning to think that I really took that freedom for granted. The world of working adulthood has now enforced a dress code on life, five days out of seven for the first time since I was 15. Needless to say, my wardrobe was seriously lacking in the business wear department, which translated into a minor (borderline major) shopping spree to fill this void. Although far from complete, I think I’ve managed to wrangle together a pretty decent capsule collection that will suffice until the bank account allows for further expansion.
I am loving these TopShop pants that actually fit me lengthwise without having to be hemmed (thank you petite section) and this vibrant floral number brings some much-needed colour into working attire. I do try to avoid wearing all black to the office, but I have to admit that it does look chic as hell and you feel like a super boss lady despite knowing very little about what you're actually supposed to be doing at work..
