Work and Play

Beach and sea view. Sand close up. For work and play 2 minute style tip

How do you manage what you wear for work and play

Do you do one really well

And the other not so much

Maybe with play you don’t have to turn up looking perfect

Maybe that’s the point of play

You can turn up

And get dirty messy and sticky

How do you manage the switch

At work everything clean and tidy

And then the weekend




Do you cling on to being tidy and presentable

Or go with the flow

Neither is better than the other

Just be aware of what your preference is

And go with it

You could have outfits for being messy

I started to look like a tramp when I was walking the dogs

No disrespect to tramps

old hat old coat old gloves two leads two dogs boots or wellies

It wasn’t how I wanted to turn up

So I created an outfit for dog walking

Being in the garden is different

Let the messy clashy dirty clothes be seen

To be involved in activities

and so absorbed that nothing else matters is wonderful

It’s not either or

It’s both and

Sometimes you are messy

And sometimes you look totally put together and polished

Just decide what you want

and be mindful

If there is an area where you want to change

Then change

Just be intentional

Intentional messy

Intentional sleek and chic

Wear what you need

to do whatever you are doing


All in

Over to you
