This week I went a networking event for those looking for employment in the charity sector to pick up some contacts for Find Me Charity (the company I’m starting at the moment!).
I wanted something really really simple, chic and straightfoward that would still be memorable and stylish…. my secret weapons are always a maxi skirt, metal belt, white shirt and cape coat.
- Maxis are really warm, very comfy and very very stylish so I couldn’t live without mine!
- I have a couple of white button up shirts and I love to wear them buttoned up to the top with a necklace over the top, or with jeans and a blazer untucked, or of course high waisted.
- This belt is inspired by the Stella McCartney one (as featured on Gwyneth Paltrow) and there’s plenty of DIY blogs out there to make them too.
