Smart tailoring

Smart wear: tailoring

After I had the twins back in 2012 I didn’t return to work in my former career of Human Resources; instead opting to be a stay-at-home-Mum. Now that they are 4-years-old I still don’t work in an office anymore because I work from home as a blogger, freelance social media manager & writer.

I therefore spend a lot of my week in my home office. The majority of my work involves sitting at my iMac computer, writing and creating content, and so I don’t need to be quite as smart for that. In fact, I have to make a real effort not to wear sweat pants all day!

Pre-twins I always wore smart workwear though – including suits, heels and blouses – and I loved power dressing!

These days I do still need to meet my freelance clients for regular meetings and go to events that I get invited to, so having something smart & formal to wear for those days is important. This Laura Ashley outfit is therefore perfect for this and I love the colours and textures of it so much.

    This is just spot on for work wear – I love everything about it! I used to have a pair of very similar trousers, wore them to death, and have never been able to find a pair that fit as well.

      The trousers are gorgeous and so comfortable. Although they are too long for flats. Heels it is!!! xx
