September is always ‘back to school’ month, except this year – rather excitingly – I’m heading ‘back to work’ with Aspinal of London. A brand I have admired for years for its quality, workmanship and British heritage, I am very pleased to share with you a little something we’ve been working on…
As part of its #AspinalAtWork campaign, I’m letting you in on my workwear style and how I’m pairing it with my pick from Aspinal’s latest collection: the Lottie bag.
You can also head over to their blog for a Q&A about styling a work wardrobe, a little preview of which is below…
What is your ‘pick’ from your Aspinal product selection and why?
“My Aspinal pick is the large Lottie bag. It’s a classic shape and fits everything I need on-the-go. The taupe leather makes it a great transitional piece that will work with my wardrobe season after season.
“The envelope pocket on the back is also really useful for quick access to my Oyster!”
Which items do you always keep with you?
“I live in London, so the one thing I absolutely never leave home without is an umbrella! I don’t tend to carry a make up bag around, but I do like to have a lip balm and maybe a lipstick if I have something on in the evening.
“If I’m honest, there is probably an old dinner receipt or two hidden away in there too!”
What motivates you?
“I love writing and it’s something I do a lot day-to-day. It’s also one of the reasons I began my blog. In both cases, it’s really rewarding to see my ideas in the public domain.”
Why is looking your best in your working life important to you?
Dress for the job you want, not the job you have.
“I think there is probably some truth in that.”
