Pinstripes and Late Nights

I did it again, I dropped off the face of the blogosphere without any warning. Sometimes life just gets in the way, and apparently, I’m at that stage in life where all it does is get in the way. For good reason though.

I can finally tell you all that I have officially moved on from my Label PR days which a lot of you may now know me from, and started my new job specializing in social media. Exciting! It has definitely been a manic couple of weeks, but I think I’m finally settling into the changes in my daily routine that come with starting anew and back on the bandwagon. 

With a new job comes a new work wardrobe though, of course, and I’m in love with the current tied shirt trend. Nothing says ‘casual but boss bitch’ more than a slouchy shirt and Oakley sunglasses, and I love that we can finally diminish that unflattering waistline that comes with shirts (yes brands, even trying to dart them they still look hideous, soz) without looking like a slob! If it’s even possible, Zara have definitely upped their Summer game and many an occasion I’ve almost left the store with basically everything. Yep Zara, you have taken my salary for ransom. Oh, and would it be a Laura outfit without a pair of furry shoes? Na…

So, on to the next one! Does there ever need to be an occasion for glitter trousers and rainbow hair? If you ask me, the answer to that will definitely be no.

There’s something about the seventies that has a place in my wardrobe and a prominent one at that. If you know me in real life (or live with me like the lovely Rebecca, who yes I do feel sorry for, for having to put up with me), you’ll be aware that my collection of glitter clad shoes and clothing is excessive and my approach to colour is pretty spontaneous. Did I live a past life in Studio 54? I do hope so – who wouldn’t have wanted to be bezzies with Queen Bianca Jagger?

 But anyway, moving on. I picked up these glitter trousers from H&M about a year ago and they’ve been a staple part of my wardrobe ever since. Sticking to a tailored fit when opting for a fun colour or finish makes for a more wearable approach for any occasion. Pair with a contrasting colour such as white and you’re good to go!
