I work in schools as an advisor. I need a whole look overhaul as I am almost 40 and look like a scruff.
I was thinking- Black or charcoal skinny chinos or twill trousers. Fine gauge crew neck jumper in a variety or colours. Blazer on top. With either wedge black shoe boots, or tan Chelsea boots, or black leather heeled ankle boots. Maybe a couple of grandad collar blouses or long line vest tops to layer underneath. Couple of chunky necklaces or long strings of beads, or scarves.
I want to get up- put the same thing on everyday and look put together. I don't do smart well. But can't go full suit as I work in reception all the way to y11. I need to be able to move
Sounds like you have sorted it I find having a uniform helps save time. I have numerous skirts which I tend to wear with plain tops and ankle boots. Jazzing it up with scarfs and jewellery if feeling adventurous!
I wish I could wear trousers but have the wrong shape!
Sounds good to me. A friend who was a single parent retraining to teach just bought black tops and bottoms and wore a white shirt under it and always looked great, professional and authoritative. Everything from the charity shop
