So most of us are back at work after a lovely Easter break spent in sandals and sneakers like me, but now that we are back at work, what do we wear? It’s not so cold anymore (says me, who caught some kind of flu), there’s no need for tights and big jackets either…
As you know I mostly work from home, which means I can wear whatever I want – PJ’s including! But as part of my role as a Marketing Consultant, I attend regular business meetings with the company I work with and their clients, which means that PJ’s are definitely not an option…So here’s one of the outfits that I wore to a work-related meeting, and before you say it – I took the hat off, but still brought it with me, as I felt it completed the look whether I was wearing or holding it in my hand with the satchel.
If you don’t know what to wear – pencil skirts are always a smart choice for work wear. If you are not into pencil skirts or think that you don’t suit them – wrong! Most of us think that we need to have amazing fit bodies to wear bodycons and that pencil skirts should only be worn with blouses and tops tucked in. Wrong again! If this was the case, we would probably wear such body0fitting skirts once a year and even then the slimmest of the girls would still be self-conscious of her non-existent tummy ruining that hour-glass shape. I love wearing pencil skirts with big jumpers over them, the baggier the better, but here I went for something really bright to contrast a really plain polka dot pencils skirt, black shoes and satchel. Again, semi-casual, but the patent shoes and bag smarten up the look quite a bit, keeping it quite comfortable at the same time…

Happy Easter and Happy “Back to Work” Day!
Hope everyone enjoyed their long weekend and had lots of Chocolate Easter eggs and enjoyed this beautiful weather as much as I did!
Nonetheless, lets talk shoes! If you have noticed, on the top right of the page – I had a pair of ALDO (£90) sandals with the velcro fastening for a few weeks now as I was making up my mind whether I should purchase them or not all this time. The pair of slingbacks I am wearing here is obviously not by ALDO, but very similar with a smaller block heel (read about the height problem here) AND the velcro fastening is over the entire heel area – which is a real bonus (together with the price) in comparison to the ones I really wanted… They’re so comfy and really soft inside, almost padded which is a big PRO for me as I need the shoes that I can walk in and wear everyday with different looks – be it for school runs, shopping, meetings with work and so on.
ALDO vs NEXT – NEXT wins (this time)!

Happy Friday and Happy Easter Weekend Everyone!
I’m feeling so summery with my new floral shirt dress that I decided to wear as a kimono over some white skinnies and stripes! Then I realised I haven’t worn my hat for a while and that this look needed a nice big statement necklace and pop of spring / Easter colour with my clutch, which brings out those cute lilac flowers on the dress a bit more I think… There was no question about the shoes – my new girly nude pointy toe heels complete my “boho-casual-spring-traveller” look!

It’s Easter Holidays for kids and that means they are off school for 2 weeks (lucky bunch), but what that also means for us is a lot of imagination for things to do when it’s raining outside and a lot of pressure to spend every minute of the day outside if it’s sunny! Although the latter would probably apply to the entire Scottish population… And so we were blessed with some real sunny (uninterrupted by rain) day on Monday so we hit the road for the west coast of Scotland, because that’s what people do here when it’s hot – go the beach, wear shorts and sandals and some even take their tops off! But that’s a different story about Glasgow!
And here we go – in to the wild with our sandals and sun hats on, backpacks and cameras, snacks and sunnies packed in to the car playing “I spy with my little eye” for over 2 hours and loving every minute of it. What’s funny is that we got ready to leave on our little Sunny April adventure in 10 minutes (so that we don’t miss the Sun) – no kidding, lippy was put on en route! My pastel pink “sliders” I’ve been desperate to wear for ages now, but this hand-printed t-shirt was sitting on top of my drawers as a new addition to my wardrobe and to be honest was a perfect choice for our outing as it kinda goes with our wild theme! I love how things come together sometimes perfectly – I needed a new good quality white tee with a quirky print – and along come the amazing new brand Abetwix, who hand-print their unisex tee’s and jumpers so I was lucky enough to have one of their best designs, and besides, who doesn’t love a day in a new great quality white tee and jeans? What’s more – I needed a canvas bag for our trip and guess what? Abetwix sent me a hand-printed bag with my t-shirt delivery… What a lucky girl am I?
You’ll be seeing this t-shirt in more future posts here, but in the meantime , go check out Abetwix on ASOS Marketplace and follow the guys on Instagram to discover more about their cool brand and designs…
