Getting back in the game....


I've been going with the flow over the last few years, after 20 years of doing what I didn't want to do, I have been able to decide that I am only going to get involved in things that enrich my life and don't demand sacrifices that I am no longer prepared to make.
I am lucky to have the chance of working in with great people in an interesting environment that will allow me to stick to those principals, the salary is about 10% of where I was before, but life is about so much more than the numbers.
So I packed up my Neverfull and headed off to the first meeting, and indeed true to its name, it contains at least 3 magazines, laptop, folders and it is not even close to being full.
I would never normally wear this shape top as with my giant shoulders, wide rib cage and non-existent waist, I thought that V necks were the way forward, but I read Iwillnotwearsludgebrown, which is not just a 'buy, buy, buy' blog, rather one that is about how to wear clothes, and thought I would give it a go.  £1 cheap polyester (New Look) from the charity outlet shop. And overall it was not bad, I might upgrade to a better quality one in a similar shape that will hang better and be less stinky when the room gets hot!  
I put it on with an old pink coat, the pink coat thing is probably a fashion fad that has already had its day, it's funny though, when it was totally not the look du jour, I wore it quite happily, but now it is 'in' I feel self-conscious as if I fancy myself as some kind fashion person, which I am  most definitely not. The jeans are Reiss Dolly jeans, who can forget that name? And they were £4.99 from Ebay, still with their labels!




 We are thinking about office spaces so I have been dreaming on Pinterest...

I love this one where it feels like you are disappearing into a CS Lewis adventure...
 Pure fantasy...may be more for a boudoir than an place of work....
 I have never been called a minimalist, but the discipline of this quite appeals to me, as long as I don't have to live there...
 Black and white always works....
 Bit of modern country....
 Totally organic....
 Black on black is quite cool....
 Great way of having your own space....
 This is both cosy and tidy...
 Quite an eclectic look of old and new, I would never feel bored here...

Which would you go for as your office?

  2. You are viewing kind, the hair leaves a lot to be desired, still not sure about the pink coat. According to sludge brown lady, I am a soft and should wear natural muted colours. Pink definitely not in the right pallette.
