Massive commute both ways
Zero fashion sense

top size 12
Bottoms 14 jeans but needs a belt to stay up properly

Hobbies lots of gardening and don't hesitate mucking about with soil with bare hands!
Profession is academia/lecturing - could do with being smart but doesn't need business attire

What do I need? Where do I even begin?! How can I start an entire wardrobe and shoedrobe from scratch?

I read these threads and feel overwhelmed!

All I have down is my hair care. I've always got hair I can let down and look good or put up. Never tangled etc. The rest of me is a picture of perpetual exhaustion and wearing tatters.

New academic year this autumn I need to start afresh and look put together with absolutely minimal effort

So where do I begin?

I am quite miserly by the way. I usually butoff eBay and charity shops and they all turn it really drab and shabby
