I’m spending this week at New Look HQ assisting the buyer who’s in charge of dresses.
First thing I always stress about is my bag!! Have I got everything I might need?
Notepad and pens – you never know when you might need to take notes or to do lists.
aquaphor balm – when battling with office heating this keeps my lips soft and moisturised.
bed head hairspray – simply unbeatable
umbrella – it’s England after all!
I opted for smart casual and was very thankful I didn’t go uber smart as most of the girls in the office were pretty laid back. Some wore converse and a tee, others had gone all out in whopping heels! Quite a diverse office.
( Topshop shirt, jumper, necklace & coat, Zara trousers, Carvela boots, H&M rings, Camden Market bag Vintage scarf )
Everything is so mesmerising when its covered in white! The snowy weather we’ve had lately has been perfect for this coat I picked up from a charity shop recently. It has a cruella deville feel about it that makes me feel like I’ve walked off a 1950’s film set.

The Kenzo shirt is an eye catching piece that I found in a thrift store in Saffron Walden. I was extremely hesitant to buy it because its such a bizarre print but one that has grown on me each time I wear it. I love the story behind the label, that Kenzo Takada’s interest in fashion came from reading his sisters magazines! He then went against his parents wishes and was the first male to attend Bunka Fashion College. In brief … what a legend.

The show on Wednesday was so much fun! We took away lots of new and exciting ideas for the launch of our new bar area at work.
Here’s a few snaps from the day. From the show, then over to Neal’s yard where we stopped for some tapas at Pix’s, followed by cocktails at Maxwells in Covent Garden. Two of my favourite spots!
This is my new favourite blazer! I adore the structured neckline and the bright coloured print. Considering colour is something I would usually avoid by nature, its actually quite subtle. I’ve been needing a pair of basic jeans for a while now and these jumped out at me as the perfect staple jeans. I decided to buy them with the length slightly too long to get the ‘rolled up jeans’ denim trend and paired them with heels.
