From 1 October I changed jobs and will be working from home with a few business meetings thrown in.

I am trying to exercise most days with a class or walk and have decided to change after that because I don’t like wearing gear in my working day and like to freshen up after exercising.

What I have discovered so far

Footwear I seem to be wearing my sneakers and boots as footwear, so a change up from my heels. I bought these ballet flats, which I think will get worn often at home. They are Paul Green, so provide good arch support. I have resolved to not buy any more heels. Flats, boots, sneakers and sandals are my footwear going forward.

Denim is my friend - my denim jackets, jeans, skirts and dress are all being worn regularly - it is such an easy way to dress down other more dressy items. BUT - I don't like wearing jeans and a t-shirt as it is not dressy enough for my style.

Dresses - well I still love them, but MUST NOT BUY these because I have a great collection and just want to wear and enjoy what I have.

Wardrobe most valuable player award... will choose 2 - sneakers and my cross body bag!

Any tips on how to be casually dressed yet maintain a certain dressy style is much appreciated. I will look to forum members and Angie for style inspiration.
