I got a message from a lovely reader asking me if I dress up for work or indeed, what I wear during the day when I'm not blogging? I'm totally lucky because in my line of work, I can get away with a pretty chilled out wardrobe. Some days I'll dress up - but others - I rock about with a casual edge. I always try and feel confident when heading out, so usually put some thought into how I'm looking. I like to leave my house feeling like a million bucks. That doesn't mean I wear makeup or put together outfits every day, but really, I like to walk out of my house knowing I'm looking and feeling okay in myself. That's important.
I snapped some candids with my Blackberry to show you my one of my usual "work day" looks...
My outfit for this post was taken last week while I was freelancing at the BBC. Black tights, Shorts, Shrug, Leggings, Leather Jacket and a flash of colour with my grey and pink "sparkle" top. This whole outfit is pretty much "previous season" City Chic, except the jacket which is my trusty Evans Biker Jacket.
Also - quickly - a few of you knew I was getting my haircut last week. I was apprehensive as I've been growing it, but I needed to get something done to help keep me motivated to keep it growing. After months of no style (just growing, growing, growing), I've had it layered. An inch had to come off the ends as it was dry and GRIM - but really - the layering has helped my hair curl up and gain volume. Previously, my hair had become quite limp and the weight of it meant it didn't curl. I took the grainy shot below, right after I got home from the haircut - I LOVE it and feel I have a new lease on this hair growing malarky.
And so it continues.
PS. I'm loving that some of you, who've been reading for ages, have just started commenting. I feel flattered and really appreciate it. xxx.
