Today’s photographs are taken at the church were I’ve worked for the past year (8 hours a week). I made the decision about a month ago to leave this job partly because it will cost me too much for childcare over the Summer months and partly because the blog and associated endeavours have started to take over a lot of my spare time…which is very exciting!
I’m looking a bit smarter today which is hopefully useful for those of you who need a working wardrobe on a budget. I’ve had a few emails from working mums recently, asking for suggestions for this time of year.
I’m wearing white bootcut trousers from H&M. Got these in a flash sale they had a few months ago. I shared the news about this sale on Facebook and I know some of you picked up great bargains at the time. These were just £7! Unfortunately no longer available online but these ones from Marks & Spencer are similar.
You know my fondness for tunics by now and I bought today’s black sleeveless linen blend tunic about 15 years ago in Kookai and have worn it endlessly since. I’ve had a little look to find some similar ones available online…
|Billie & Blossom Black Shift – Dorothy Perkins £15|
|Cowl Neck Tunic – Amazon|
For some colour, I’ve got a H&M cropped cardigan in turquoise. These are not in stock in H&M anymore but New Look have a great range of coloured cropped cardigans on 2 for £18. My scarf is also from from H&M. It’s a summer weight scarf that has lovely shades of blue, purple and tan through it. New Look also have some great scarves on this link.
You can just see my M&S hairy black pumps from my post last week. Have decided to keep them but the jury’s still out on the others…what do you think?
See you tomorrow
PS The competition winner will be announced later this evening – lots of entries to process
