Short, pear-shaped and ruddy clueless

Yes, another 'help me, I am ruddy hopeless' type thread. grin

I am 43, 5 foot 'tall', size 12-14 with saddlebags and I have Lost My Style Way.

I started wearing dresses a year or two ago (as they are supposed to be 'easier' then separates) but somehow I started buying slightly shapeless, patterned 'quirky' dresses, and to avoid having to think about footwear, I paired them with knee high boots. Now instead of feeling smartish and professional at work, I feel scruffy and frumpy. I need to get my shizzle together, style-wise.

I desperately need a few workwear items to make me feel vaguely smartly dressed. I am planning to lose weight, so ideally I wouldn't be spending loads. I know what I don't like (anything in black, white or grey, anything polyester, shapeless, sleeveless or bodycon) but not what I do like.

Where do I start?

No help whatsoever, sorry sad but watching with interest (fellow short pear).
