Not So 9 To 5


Having just completed 6 weeks working for a prestigious fashion magazine, I felt I couldn’t bypass the opportunity to write about it and share my experience with you. I was out of the office and in different departments for most of the days, which was so exciting to say the least! Days included meeting clients at press events and afternoon teas, attending fashion and jewellery shoots, and sorting through clothes for the shoots in the fashion closet (by ‘closet’ I mean a room full of vintage couture, Christian Louboutin and Chanel – an absolute dream!) 

Here are a handful of the looks that I chose during my time working in August. It took me so long deciding what to wear every morning because if there’s anywhere you’re going to be judged upon what you’re wearing, it’ll be at the world’s largest fashion publications’ work place! I opted for high fashion looks but tried to keep it smart at the same time, keeping to current season trends.
I Am Wearing
Top – H&M, Skirt – French Connection, Shoes – Aldo
I am currently having a bit of a love affair with full midi skirts! Be prepared for these skirts to be EVERYWHERE this Autumn. I love pairing them with a simple top and strappy heels. 


I Am Wearing
Dress – French Connection, Shoes – New Look, Bag – Longchamp
This dress could potentially be ‘too styled’ for my liking but I love the shape and the design. And not forgetting the shoes! These are the latest addition to my rapidly expanding collection, but have nonetheless been given my full attention. Being white they are so easy to wear with most outfits and I love how they rise above the ankle making them a true statement shoe.

I Am Wearing
Dress – United Colors of Benetton, Bag – Warehouse, Sunglasses and shoes – H&M

As we are approaching the end of the summer I decided to whip this summer dress out of the wardrobe before it’s too late. I’m not usually a fan of these colours but the lacey material is right up my street especially with the tan accessories.

I Am Wearing
Top – Warehouse, Skirt – Zara, Boots – Office, Necklace – Kurt Geiger

This is my ultimate bargain outfit. Everything shown here I have recently found in the sales (get down to the shops before the sales end!) I’m a fan of making something out of nothing by styling different items together. Due to the detail of the top, I paired it with a simple black asymmetric skirt and ankle boots.
