Today I had a meeting at 9am with my boss in the local area. We were meeting a potential new client. I always struggle with how to look smart but not stuffy. I was going to wear a dress but three things stopped me:
1: White legs
2: Hairy legs
3: It's freezing
I know I could have put on some tights to help with the three points above but I didn't fancy wearing tights. I actually really hate wearing tights and they make my bum cheeks itch when I sit on my chair in the office.
I have had these trousers for a very long time. I actually think they are 12 or 13 years old from Zara. Zara is good for me because the cut works (low waist and long lines) and I never have an issue with length. I know lots do but I struggle in most other high street stores. I have an inside leg measurement of 34" so bog standard cut jeans and trousers don't work for me sadly.
I adore this shirt from TM Lewin. I didn't know how 'soft' a shirt could feel when normally I feel really stuffy and 'stiff' in them.
Necklace is from my shop but has sold out now. Shoes from Deichmann.
What's your smart outfit for a meeting if you have to have one? This was day job work work so I couldn't get away with my staple jeans/heels/blazer look I'd wear for a more relaxed meeting I might have for Avenue 57.
