Summer workwear; why wait until your holidays to look fabulous?

If you are like me I have a few more weeks of those long days at work before I jet off.
I am itching to wear my summer wardrobe which I have been building up over the past few months and looking forward to looking fabulous every second of the day in the height of summer.

BUT, why restrict fabulous fashion to holidays?

We are in the perfect season and time period to show off amazing outfits and what better place to do it than at the office? Hello 9-5 glamour, florals and colour ...


Maybe you work in an office?
Do you teach people?
Your always out and about in your job?

It really does not matter, there is no excuse that can stop you looking amazing during work.

Employers evidently opt for smart and tailored attire however you can push the boundaries. Do not hesitate to ask. Perhaps your boss only likes you wearing monochrome (not always a bad thing but it can get tiring if it is everyday)? What is stopping you from asking to wear colour as long as you are dressed smart?

The main thing to an employer is that you look presentable and can do your job. If you show your employer that you can look smart and sophisticated whilst experimenting with fashion this opens up a whole new world of opportunities and you can also encourage other people to experiment.
You have to wear these outfits on a somewhat weekly basis so it is definitely worth investing in decent and quality pieces particularly in handbags and jewellery! Remember this is a mix and match of designer and high street but you can always substitute with each.
I have created six different looks based on signature pieces and adding pieces that will compliment them.

I would say the Sassy Shorts are my favourite look but I would try out all of them. Which one best suits you? Please let me know!
