Workwear Ideas

I don’t know about you but I really struggle with workwear. Men have it lucky, they can throw on a shirt and trousers and they are good to go. With women it’s harder, there is a thin line between appropriate and inappropriate sometimes. Finding appropriate tops in summer is hard, with everything being sleeveless. Trying to find office wear in you personal style can also prove difficult. Pinterest and other bloggers are a life saver for me, both are great for inspiration. While I was recently in London I decided to photograph my five work outfits to try and give you some ideas if your ever struggling. Unfortunately some of the items are not available anymore but I have done my best to link the closest thing I can find. Thanks to Caitlin for being my chief photographer!
