Our daughter is learning to talk, and we’ve been making an effort to tell her where we go when we leave the house. The other night I was telling her that Daddy was at work – “Daddy go work fly airplane” was her response and I was very proud of her for being able to put a sentence together and she obviously understood what ‘work’ meant. “That’s right Eva, Daddy is at work flying an aeroplane. What does mummy do at work?”
“Mummy go gym do excise” That was her very cute response, and my body would be grateful if it were true, but it made me question why my daughter seems to think that I’m going to the gym when I tell her I’m going to work.
The next morning as I was getting dressed ready for a day at the desk Eva asked “I go gym Mum?” I explained that I wasn’t going to the gym, looked down at my outfit and realized what was going on. As I work a couple of days a week from the home office, my attire has become very relaxed, to the point of looking like I’m heading to the gym. I am making a conscious effort to improve this, but my leggings are just so comfortable.
After years in the corporate world of suits and shirts, I like being able to express my personality with the clothes I wear. Being relaxed and down to earth also matches the brand of my business. You don’t have to be in a matching pant suit to look professional. Here are some of my picks for gorgeous, affordable work wear that’s currently available (and not a legging in sight):
What are your ‘go-to’ work pieces this season? How do you deal with the cold weather whilst trying to stay stylish?
