A superfast post from me tonight before I head off down to London. A reader, Sally, emailed me this week and said that she was missing my weekly work outfit round-ups because she finds them helpful, even if I do repeat things. So that made things easy, here goes: this is what a Head of Marketing & Creative wears for work….

Monday – late home after supper with our German agent

Summer work outfits for women over 40

Whistles double faced blazer; Boden blouse; Boden bistro crops; Zara shoes

Tuesday – the sun came out at last – I could see it through the window at work – all day!!

On Wednesday it was an even lovelier day … through the window…Summer work outfits for women over 40

White Stuff t-shirt; Boden skirt; Boden Alice heels

Today I’ve spent most of the day at Toshiba’s Northern office near Manchester overseeing the calibration of new printers…it felt like a day for jeans

Some thoughts – because it’s been such a bad Summer in the North I haven’t bought many new Summer clothes. It’s actually been a joy to rediscover some old favourites – there’s been a lot of Boden because that’s what I’ve relied on so much in the past. I’ve also noticed how much I use a pair of statement shoes to lift otherwise boring outfits.

That’s it – must dash, have a great week. I’ll do my best to post before we go away.
