‘Smart casual’ for work

‘Smart casual’ for work

At work I spend most of my time at meetings, standing up at the front presenting. Obviously when I dress well, I feel confident.

When I feel uncomfortable in my clothes, I feel unconfident in the messages I am trying to get across, which makes my audience lack confidence in me.  Hence, I am mostly found in a dress and high heels.

However, the travel in the dress and tights is, let’s be honest, bloody uncomfortable!

This week, my meetings have so far been local and a little more relaxed. I decided to try out a new look! I didn’t want to be wearing tights or a coat in the car – it’s too much! Then, when I get hot I have to carry the bloody coat around with me.  I say carry, I tend to drag the bloody thing on the floor behind me, picking up twigs, cats and small kids along the way.

Here is what I decided on: 


Cardigan- John Rocha

Trousers- Matalan

Top- Evans

Scarf- gift from beloved

Shoes- Clarks

Please excuse my miserable face- it was about 7am!

I felt very comfortable in this outfit all day long! I especially liked the trousers which I bought recently for £14- bargain! I live in them!

I also found (finally) my sunglasses from ASOS, which I bought recently in the sale for a fiver- result!


Finding outfits for work is so hard!

My main go to retailers for work wear are Debenhams,  Matalan, M&S, Evans and sometimes ASOS.

What about you?
