It’s easy to settle into a rut of not dressing up or making little effort with your clothes, especially when you work from home like I do. I am proud that I don’t sit in my pyjamas all day, but it is easy to become boring with your clothes and reach for the same tired look everyday.
So I knew when I started working from home I didn’t want to wear the same thing everyday or rely on leggings and a T-shirt to see me through the day.
However having fun with everyday looks doesn’t need to be complicated, it’s all about the details! One of my favourite things to do is have fun with prints and this Stiletto print T-shirt from TU at Sainsbury’s is perfect, plus it was only £6. It’s still functional, practical for the school run and for working at home but its colourful and fun.
I like picking a colour theme and working in some fun accessories to add a further pop of colour or pick up on accents in my overall outfit. These jeans are TU at Sainsbury’s and I really liked the sporty stripe, it livens up jeans and creates an interesting detail. They are fab smartened up with a heel and blazer jacket too.
Mixing high and low priced items is key to me in getting the right look and fit. I’ve always loved shoes and making them a key part of my outfit. These white beauty’s are Vivienne Westwood and so comfy! They are subtle with the ribbon tape at the back and a piece I know I’ll have for ages. Personally I’ve never done well buying cheap shoes, they always tend to rub and give me blisters so I usually buy from Clark’s, Schuh or Simply Be. In contrast the Mickey Mouse backpack is last season Primark, a cheap bag but still good quality and a general fun piece that is versatile.
The key for me in dressing in fun everyday looks was to make it easy. Picking up on a colour that suited me and creating a capsule of items that work together meant I can choose looks quickly in the morning.
So take some time to pick out key colours and pieces that work together and make your wardrobe work harder for you!
