OK, so here I sit with no make-up on, unbrushed hair and hairy legs - while the lovely Princess Mary and Prince Fredrick visit Australia.
There is no excuse for me to make about it being too hot - just look how lovely and cool Mary looks and calm and put-together and like her cat wasn't sick in the washing machine.
As I emerge from the depths of report writing (150!) and job applications - 4 down - I am going to start looking once again like a modern girl with a vintage twist (maybe I should make a cocktail called that).
So every day:
- clean hair - brushed and put-up
- make-up before I start work
- clothes that are suitable to the climate - I was caught out by the weather last week
- A handbag that isn't ridiculously large and filled with junk that I don't need - and is so heavy that it makes me lean to one side
- Nice shoes - or walking shoes for the walk to the office and a selection of nice shoes under my desk
- My lunch is a bag that isn't covered in old stains (like the re-useable shopping bag I am using now)
- My hands moisturised and not looking scaly
- With - a smile on my face - because even if I am finding work difficult right now - it's not anyone's fault.
Here are some images to get an idea of what I would like for work:
- Ok - so I like to wear skirts - I think that while pants can be more practical (did I mention I am directing the Infants Christmas Play ) I love wearing skirts - and I think that little girls like it too - they always comment on what you are wearing.
- I like a belt - a small waist looks vintage and I have a huge selection of belts that I never wear!
- Not black all the time - I know I r=teach music but that doesn't make Johnny Cash my patron saint of dressing - love his look though.
