Workwear farewell

These past weeks have been a culmination to Friday 23rd November, my last day at the office for 3months. That's right, 3 months of no work, no finance proposals, no client meetings!
What will I do with myself? I am filled with trepidation, as I think about my job and realise that I absolutely love and enjoy it, and to be without it for 3 months?!
My career has been my purpose for the longest time; separate to being a mum, wife and friend. And so much energy and hard work- what shall I do for stimulation?

Well, I suppose one has to jump in with both feet and give it a go, to really know what a 3 month sabbatical will bring my way. As the saying goes: "If you are brave enough to say goodbye, life will reward you with a new hello".

So I have decided to do a few posts on workwear since I probably won't be wearing them for a while.

Since I work in a formal environment, one always has to look professional. At times I try to bring in a bit of a playful element with an accessory, handbag or a pop of colour. Seen below is one of my more formal looks, where I have paired a structured jacket with a textured pencil skirt.

Here I am wearing:

More look posts will follow as I have more free time.

Ciao for now,
