{Inspiration} Wear-to-work

Since heading back to work I have been on the look out for wear-to-work clothes. I have never been a huge fan of the suit so I need to find outfits that are suitably corporate but show enough personality to make dressing in the morning fun.┬áIn Sydney I would wear a dress almost every other day but recently I’ve been drawn to separates, especially trousers.

{Stripes} Any type any colour

I have had an infatuation with stripes for some time now (see here and here) and can happily say that the trend* is here to stay for at least spring 2012 anyway. The high street shops are filled with stripes – any colour, any width and any item of clothing imaginable. Here are some inspirational pictures including a peak at my own collection. One word – obsessed.

*I would normally say that the stripe is a classic and staple in anyones wardrobe (and yes I love a well executed stripe on a man) but this season the high street stores have taken it to another level.

On another note it’s finally Friday, yay!! This week was a good week, I finally got my work rights so I can start job hunting – btw does anyone like looking for a new job because I find the whole process rather difficult? Anyway, I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

The striped maxi dress

At the end of last summer I bought my first couple of maxi dresses and I just love them! They are so easy to wear as there is no decision-making about what to put with them – all you need is a good pair of flats.

As my readers know I have a small obsession with stripes (here) so when I saw them put together with a maxi dress I thought “what a fabulous combination”.

So the search begins for a striped maxi dress for the Australian summer. Check out these lovely ladies for inspiration.

Vanessa Jackman - Amber Jules dress

The beautiful blue striped dress as shown on Vanessa Jackman’s blog (Vanessa Jackman) is by an Australian designer Amber Jules. The knit wear and resort wear is just so elegant and beautiful – I want it all if only I could afford it.
