Workwear inspiration

I'm going back to work after maternity leave in a few months, and I feel I need some new office clothes to make me feel slightly less horrified at the prospect. I also have the issue that currently I don't quite fit into all my pre-pregnancy trousers, alas. Can anyone recommend some good workwear bloggers on Pinterest or Instagram who I could follow for inspiration? Preferably ones who say where the clothes they're showing are from!

I work in a fairly traditional environment, so although I don't have to wear a suit, I've tended to go for long boots, skirts, dresses or tailored trousers in the past.

Thanks in advance!

The Workwearedit has good ideas.

Career girl is American I think but may have some inspiration.

One friend after maternity leave in a similar role bought lots from Forever 21 until she got her figure back a few months later as there was some cheap but ok stuff.

Potentially some stylish dresses and jackets could be good if you are conscious of your stomach area? And some funky shoes?

Thanks Fiorentina - I'll check out the blogs and Forever 21, which I haven't come across before. Funky shoes would be great!

I read a few blogs, but workwear ones seem to be fairly rare (I guess people are too busy actually working). Often I get great ideas from them rather than links to purchase. A few I like:

Midlife Chic (modern, classic style, writes beautifully)
What Lou Wore (lots of Boden)
Blue Collar Red Lipstick (Canadian, buys lots of thrift, but always coordinated and smart)
Glam Up Your Lifestyle (crazy German, but I love her style)
Workwear Edit (doesn't post enough!)
