Le professional - day one

Today so did not go according to plan.

When I woke up all I wanted to do was chuck on a t-shirt and seriously wondered whether people might actually mistake my black jeans for tailored work pants if I just made sure I moved around a lot all day.

But then I remembered that I was supposed to be trying to look at least a little bit capable. So I picked out something kind of smart looking but also a little bit me.

And then it totally went to pot when I realised that I had forgotten to bring my make up bag to work. ARGH!!!! All I had in my office was some BB cream, pressed power and a sad, black eyeliner crayon which was old and dry and dragged when I put it on.

Sad. Face.

Anyhoo, I still think I pulled up ok for a Monday - still lots of room for improvement though. Also I think I get extra points for not wearing all black.

Aaaaaand it looks even more corporate with a blazer!

Still wore some of my chunky, goth bling too.

(Here is a close up of the ring - it is ace!)

So kinda professional, right?

With the jacket on, you do look professional. At least to my rather ignorant eyes. I am disappointed you aren't wearing all black. I think you should work harder at achieving that as a noble goal.

Very professional. I feel like the photos do not do justice to the outfit. You clearly need a new camera...hang on a second...

Liking the pencil skirt! Bonus points for the subtle goth touches while channeling Audrey Hepburn, nice.
