Hi everyone!

I must apologise for the sudden silence. Last week, I spent most of the week redecorating and organising and this did take a bit of a toll on everything else. I am starting my PhD this semester and will be working part-time at the University from next week so I wanted to take some time to create an environment that would inspire me to work harder and inspire me to push further towards my goals. I really believe in having a nice space to get the creativity rolling and to keep inspired. I of course sponsored this through selling all the items I had still, that I did not need. I believe in only having what you need and use and if I can generate enough to redecorate a whole flat with the money from the items I don't use then I am absolutely more than happy for that. I have learned a lot in the past few months about finances and especially how I would like to ensure that I am catering towards my needs and not trying to keep up with what society says I need at a certain age. It literally has just lifted this weight off my shoulders and made me so much more aware of myself. I just hope to be able to share this with you one day. 

I took these pictures a while ago and I wanted to show a more formal office look for those interested. I think pencil skirts are perfect for the office and great essentials for a closet. Midi pencil skirts are my favourite, although this one is not exactly the right length I love it is a great skirt. I  think that midi skirts that reach ankle length or just before ankle length compliment any body type and are so flattering for both formal and casual looks. I paired the faux leather skirt with my polo neck, which is another essential in my closet and this gorgeous blazer. It is so easy to change up the look with a lower neck black top if you are not completely comfortable with the polo neck. The coat is also an essential which you will have seen worn a few times on the blog already. Completed the look with my sandals and my most used item: the black miniature hand bag. These two items can be replaced with black courts and a black tote and just like that you have an office appropriate look!

Polo neck- Spree- +/-R 140
