Sorry my blog posts have been a bit sporadic lately! I am starting a new job (of sorts) and so for the first time since becoming a mum, I am having to figure out how to do this working mum juggle in a more permanent way. Up until now it has been manageable to fit in styling clients or small blog projects here and there, but in this new role I am working with another company so I need to work more traditional hours, as well as attend meetings and networking events. I will definitely share more details with you when I can but in the meantime please just bear with me :).
So I had a few staff meetings and training sessions this morning and I was so excited to be able to wear this new “Thousand Star Dress” I received from Daily Style Boutique. I love the cold shoulder details as well as the high neck with a subtle ruffle. Obviously as I am working within the fashion industry I can get away with this as work attire, however if you are in a more corporate environment, this dress would probably be better for weekend wear.
As I’ve mentioned before, ‘Cold Shoulder’ styles are a great take on the ‘Off The Shoulder’ trend. They give you the same effect but are more wearable and flattering on a greater variety of body shapes. I have quite broad shoulders and often look much wider across my chest when I wear an OTS style, however with the cold shoulder silhouette the extension of the sleeve down my arm helps to balance out my shoulders, and give my overall shape more proportion. So if you love the OTS style but don’t feel like it suits you for whatever reason, try the cold shoulder instead!
I hope you are all having a great start to the week, any working mums that can give me some tips on ‘doing it all’, I’d love to hear from you!!
