Wear to work {01}

wear-to-work-01-4-2Wearing – ASOS top and pants, Maison Olga coat (similar and equal in awesomeness), Country Road slippers (similar), belt from Empire (seriously!)

Ah, first world problems…What to wear to work? Having spent most of last year in hospital scrubs and the first half of this year in my Broome uniform (breezy sundresses), I was faced with this dilemma when I returned to Perth to start a job where lazing about in blue pyjamas wasn’t quite gonna cut it.

There are, however, a few considerations one needs to keep in mind when working with children!

  1. Mobility is key. You need to be able to get down on the ground, squat, and/or bend in awkward directions to often accommodate what a kid is doing at times.
  2. You need to accomplish all that whilst still keeping your modesty in check! Flashing is not recommended.
  3. You may be the recipient of projectiles from any number of bodily orifices at any moment, at any time. If you don’t keep your spider sense honed or you carelessly let that nappy slide, you’re gonna get what you deserve. Therefore, the words “dry clean only” and “hand wash only” are not desirable. Also, don’t wear anything too exxy, a spew stain will greatly lessen its value.

Enter ASOS to the rescue with their super stretchy, comfy and flattering peg pants. And to sweeten the deal, they cost little over $30 on sale! Spiced up with a cute belt and staple black flats you can barely tell. Tick, tick, tick. All criteria met.

Do you have any workwear secrets or tips? I’d love to hear about them! This person sure did – I didn’t know whether to laugh or cry!

  1. I love that belt! And you just look as stylish as your ‘breezy-broome uniform’!

  2. That cardigan article is SO funny! I think I might get some non prescription glasses for internship 😛 (kidding! but sorta not)

    For hospital I find subtle patterned pants or pants that aren’t black to be the most useful. No matter how many skirts I buy (not many actually), I always reach for pants when running out the door!

    Gorgeous coat by the way 🙂

  3. I love houndstooth! BTW cute style! I have a brother and sister who live in Perth. Such a beautiful city, but so expensive to get there!
