WHAT TO WEAR: 3 Office Appropriate Outfits

If you ever went to a school with a uniform, wearing whatever you wanted on casual clothes days was the highlight of the semester. But once you enter full time working life, suddenly choosing the PeRfECt OuTfIt each morning becomes a chore.

Because we all know sleep > standing in front of your wardrobe.

So I've pulled together a quick little guide that should give you a couple more minutes in the morning under the covers. Each outfit caters for a specific work related situation (but feel free to mix it up!) and are easy formulas that are tried and tested, and will work no matter what pieces you have in your closet.

OOTD: How to wear neutrals

I used to say to myself that when I started working full time, that I wouldn't let my wardrobe turn into 50 shades of grey toned clothing. Because boring, right?

Yet, here we are, and I've been converted! While I still love a splash of colour, when the majority of your work wardrobe automatically matches, getting dressed in the morning does become a lot easier! Read on for how I styled this outfit...

TUTORIAL: What Is Strobing?

Strobing? But I only just got the hang of contouring!

Girl, I feel you. Just when it seems like everyone's mastered the contour, this new technique just strolls on in and becomes the new 'it' thing.

Well, in all honesty, I love it! Strobing is all about giving your complexion a gorgeous glow and emphasising the areas of the face that light would naturally hit - such as your cheekbones - to give your skin a healthy radiance. So while contouring is all about creating shadows, strobing is used to add light! 

Plus (real talk), it takes waaaaay less time in the morning than contouring and I think the effect is much more wearable for everyday. So in this week's post, I'll be showing you how to get that dewy, strobed-up complexion, so you can leave your bronzers behind and get your highlighters ready!
