6th October 2016
We’re all about time off. Relaxing with family and friends. Pulling on our wellies and taking the dog for a walk. And getting cosy with a good book (and a glass of good wine).
However, we know that to be able to do these things (and fully appreciate them) we also have to get up early and put our nose to the grindstone.
These days the lines between what to wear at work and the weekend have become increasingly blurred. Many offices (and workplaces in general) have now become a lot more relaxed – but this throws up a dilemma – do we (should we) have to wear separate clothes or can the same be used for both meetings and mooching around town?
Yes. Quite simply. There’s no reason that with a few tweaks and twists your work wardrobe and weekend wardrobe can’t become one. Here are a few pieces from our latest collection that won’t look out place next to the photocopier or propping up the cocktail bar*.
When styled with cigarette trousers our Rosamund Blouse and Mollie Blazer really do look the part – smart (but not too smart) they’ll work in almost any office environment. The blouse is soft, lightweight and versatile and the blazer is crafted from soft jersey, meaning it could almost pass as tweed in disguise and is so easy to wear.
Pair our Lucie Classic Fit Shirt with our Penelope Pencil Skirt for a sophisticated office look that’s guaranteed to receive compliments. The shirt is cut from crisp cotton and has been finished with perfectly placed darts to ensure a fantastic fit. The skirt has been crafted from soft cotton jersey that will skim rather than cling and has an elasticated waistband for comfort. Switch the skirt for peg leg trousers if you wish and accessorise with our Bloomfield Silk Scarf to add a further talking point.
Heading out with friends? Then swap the skirt for a pair of our Monroe Jeans – we’ve fiddled with the fit and now they’re better than ever – and change your shoes for a pair of trainers. Getting ready for the weekend has never been easier (and ready for work so much fun).
