Smart casual work wardrobe?

I'm back to work next month after maternity leave and I literally have no work clothes anymore so am in need of some help!

I'm a size 14, Tummy still looks a bit pregnant but generally a pear shape. We're allowed to wear jeans but we do need to look on the smarter side. Totally skint so don't want to spend too much and I'll be working 3 days a week. Can anybody please link me to some things I can just order online as I've been searching sites for ages and have no idea how to put outfits together anymore!

Thanks in advance!

Hopeful bump?

I went to the Boden website - clearance - on going back to work, and found some dresses for £20-30, dresses were much easier than trying to put together outfits of a morning.

There are loads of threads on here about workwear. Have you searched for any?

Have a look on Pinterest for work wear ideas.
When I went back to work I bought a pair of slim fit navy trousers (gap), blazer, tan flats and three different tops (Whistles seam back tee and boden ravello tops). Wore pretty much that for a couple of weeks and then bought another blazer, added tops etc. All within same colour palette so easy to mix and match.

Good luck, going back to work is a big deal (well was for me anyway, being off on maternity really knocked my confidence)
