So, you know I said that for those of you not so into fashion, I'd be back with a post that wouldn't be me titting around in front of a camera attempting Cara Delevingne vibes and succeeding in Hagrid/Shrek/[insert your own choice of ungainly, awful looking person here]? Well, I kinda failed with that didn't I? But hear me out on this...
My intention was to tell you all about the loveliest Fragrance combining consultation with Jo Malone in which I found a combo that dreams are made of, and then I got seriously seriously sick as a dog [insert violin and sick face emoji's here, for good measure] and spent my entire weekend in bed, watching Gossip Girl, Suits and Prison Break, definitely not in a state to take photo's. Which in theory, sounds like a dream, but when your head feels like it's about to explode, your throat like it's been attacked with a machete, your body is simultaneously shivering and sweating like a bitch and you're puking
and having the shits* ... even Michael Schofield, Chuck Bass and Harvey Spector can't save you!
*P.S if you'd like to nominate me for worlds sexiest woman right now, please feel free to go right ahead...
So today's post comes courtesy of some photo's that I took during LFW that I was saving for another time, because whilst I technically wore it to LFW, it's also become a bit of a go to look for my breakfast meetings/lunch meetings/all the meetings/events kinda days. Smart, a little casual in places, but enough to make me look as if I haven't woken up 15 minutes before I was meant to leave. Ahem...
P.P.S it also contains the trench coat of dreams and the shoes that dreams were made of, so yeah, thank me later or something ;)
The bag is another piece from Boden and having received it way before the rest of the Boden family in this post, I can safely say that this is definitely not just something I've enjoyed on a whim/for a short space of time. The leather is so buttery soft and smooth and the bag as a whole just beautifully well made, it's been my bag of choice - i.e the one that sticks with me because if you're a "change your bag everyday girl", you're a better person than me - for the last couple of months. I also adore the colour, not too navy but not bright enough that you can't wear it with everything. Adore!
Trench coat: Boden*

So that brings this post to an end. There is so much more I could say about workwear, and the fact that I shot these pics with my girl Hayley which means I was mostly falling about laughing, but in all honesty... my head currently feels like it's about to explode, and my brain currently feels like if Flu was a person, it would punch it in the god damn frickin face.
So yeah, that's all my beaten bod can handle but I really hope you liked the simple, classic
boring af look. I would love to know what your standard "meetings"/"smart but not too much" look is? Are there any wardrobe staples I need to add to my wardrobe? Let me know your thoughts :)
As always, thanks so much for reading!
