I’ve recently taken heed of the saying;
Dress for the job you want, not the job you have.
as I think it’s really really good advice- unless you work in an office and want to be a pole dancer of course. You’ll just get sacked. And maybe arrested. But for me, it makes me feel more professional, makes a great impression on clients and shows the company I’m serious about going far here. In order to look more professional I had to turn away from my usual stores and try somewhere just a little more grown up. That’s where Coast at John Lewis comes in.
They have the absolute most perfect pieces for the office. My idea is to invest in a few key bits that I can mix and match to create a number of different outfits. Go for quality over quantity for once. Also, whilst looking for more grownup work wear I discovered that Coast also has some really cool bits for day to day wear, evening wear and fancy occasions. The following bits and bobs all caught my eye- how pretty they are!
Coast have really impressed me with their style and grace and I’ll definitely be buying one or two items a month from here, rather than 8 cheap bits from my usual stores that fall apart after one wash!
