Outfit: The suit

I’m all for a good power suit but I don’t own one. Nor would I, I don’t think. I’m usually one to wear a simple dress and a blazer to meetings but these trousers from Next just scream business chic at me. I was going to wear them with my new blue blazer but it just didn’t work. So I threw on a very eighties-feeling Boohoo blazer that I recently bought from eBay.

Women’s suits are generally a bit blah, whereas men rarely fail to look dashing when they wear a suit. If you have to work in that sort of environment, make sure you do it with style. Don’t buy an off-the-rack skirt and jacket to wear with a white shirt. Jazz it up with colour and patterns.

More under the cut…

Really bored of the snow now. This outfit looked immense with my Jeffrey Campbell Lita boots but I wasn’t able to wear them out into the garden. I’m just too terrified of breaking my ankle when I have a broken-legged boyfriend to look after. (Excuses, excuses….)

    I absolutely love those trousers! I totally agree about the JC Litas! I tried to wear them on a night out when it was really icy ( literally an ice rink everywhere – love Scotland), I ended up walking around in the snow and ice with no shoes on – death trap!
