And, just like that, we are right back into the working year.
For 2017 I'm all about streamlining my wardrobe. The house move has really forced me to re-consider which clothes I actually love and love to wear, and which ones I just keep around because I tend to think they'll be handy and go with lots of other things. And the reality is, I had a lot of rubbish. Cheaply made pieces that just looked flat. Tops that shrink and come out of the wash misshapen. Yuck. Well, they are gone now!
Its probably clear to any of you who have scrolled more than one post that I do tend towards the monochrome in my workwear (and increasingly in my weekend wear too). Well, its time to embrace it. When everything you own is black, white or grey, it all goes together. While this might sound boring to some, it makes dressing a breeze, and minimises the chances of me making a bad misjudgement when half asleep and hurrying off to an important meeting looking like i've dressed in the dark.
I mix it up now with dashes of nude and navy, just a little bit can add so much. And most of all, I'm embracing it. This is my style, and I'm happy.
