We've all had those realisations when our days start to blur together and getting up/going to work at 8am is never going to end. (At least not in our near future) When I was a student, I craved for consistency in daily routines because as you know, one week of easy lectures can quickly turn into a week of all nighters, finishing those awful 20,000 word essays. I may not miss those lengths of writing, but I do miss the easy mornings in my pj's, reading the newspaper and enjoying a freshly cooked breakfast waiting for the creative juices to kick in on full blast. I've now switched out my pj's for sneakers (best for running through the tube) and settle for a quick scan of the BBC News App instead of the morning print. But hey, life's all about compromises.
Even after a long day at work, I still crave to create. Whether it's a delicious meal or finding the perfect look for the next blog posts, my drive and creativity is still with me even after a long day at the office. I may have standardized my days, but I always let my creativity come out in my wardrobe. Working in the East side of London, my everyday staples are way more laid back than a city slicker. Think booties, jeans, sweaters, easy tops - no suits. (Thank goodness) I've always been a huge ruffle lover but I've always been conscious of looking overtly young so my first instinct is always to stay away. However, thanks to the fashionable runways of Gucci, Chloe and Cushnie et Ochs, the ruffle trend has come back into our lives and I couldn't be happier. And the high street has never been more on point with their affordable dupes costing a fraction of the real stuff. This ZARA sweater is easily the comfiest sweater I've ever bought and at just £15.99, this beauty was a steal. The ruffled sweater look is the perfect everyday staple for keeping the office vibes comfy and stylish. You can pair this trend with a pair of leather leggings or tuck into a high waisted skirt. I've also found some other options here, here and here.
