Since beginning my job as a trainee solicitor (lawyer for my American readers), my Instagram has been full of requests for a work wear post. However, I don't usually take much care with regards to snapping what I'm wearing during the week - a quick Instagram shot in my lounge mirror (usually with my washing hung up in the background) is as close as I'm going to get to a post on this, so here goes! It's not all glitz and glam in the big city ;)
The majority of my work wardrobe consists of dresses. I adore fitted dresses for work. If you do too and you work in an office environment be sure that they're not too short and not too low. Zara is my go-to for these kind of work-appropriate dresses. They are cool but classy. Hobbs and Reiss also have some beautiful work dresses too, albeit at a slightly higher cost.
In fact, Zara is my go to for most of my work attire which is probably why I don't blog about each outfit individually; you'd all be sick of me harping on about Zara the whole time!
My next stop when a dress just isn't cutting it for my mood are cigarette pants with a matching blazer and tailored shirt . Zara, once again, come up trumps for these kinda suits. The thing I loved about my suit (pictured above) was that it wasn't dark blue or black but a lovely, summery light grey. The beauty of Zara is they usually do both a skirt and trousers to match a suit jacket so you can double up!
My work shoes range from M&S and Louboutin, to (you guessed it) Zara. However, my pet hate is the kitten heel so I make sure they have a proper heel whilst still being comfy and durable. Who says form and function can't go hand in hand?
My work wear crush is Rachel Zane from 'Suits' (if you don't watch it, do). Every outfit she wears on set in her law firm is killer; shame we can't all have a stylist while we're roaming around the office huh?
