Inspiration

So the past week has been fairly busy. Setting up my graduate exhibition REVEAL and attending the opening night (the free bar that was supposed to last for 3 hours ran out in 45 minutes!). Since then I've been having a well-deserved break for a few days and now the packing begins because.....I'm moving to London in a week! So thought this was a good opportunity to do a workwear/general inspiration post for going to work at ELLE magazine. So excited to start properly, it will be fantastic.

Loving the grey t-shirt, leather shorts, cardie combo on Alexa.

 These beauties from Topshop Boutique (£75) will be perfect for later summer and then Autumn/Winter. Too hot for leather shorts atm!

This oversized stripe t-shirt will be SO easy to wear for work on a hot day. Teamed with heeled ankle boots and bare legs (£32, Topshop Boutique)

Also LOVING this dress from COS, definately a new staple wardrobe piece (love the leather pockets)

And as I am a staunch A/W girl, I have been looking for new winter coats already.

On the list so far I have a flying jacket (hoping to get a vintage one) and either a cape or grey coat, like this beautiful Stella McCartney number, available from Net-A-Porter.


Or this BEAUT of a coat from Miu Miu:


Some things to look forward to:

1. Starting work at ELLE magazine next Monday!!
2. The launch of Mr Porter (new from Net-a-Porter)
3. The return of my gorgeous boyfriend.
4. The soon-to-be-made purchase of the Mulberry Oversized Alexa.
5. Summertime in London.
