Blog Series: 9 to 5 Essentials remix


How was your weekend? Mine was terrible! On Friday Matthew vomited all night long, and yeap, that was the day of his party, so instead of ending a long day of hard work with putting my feet up and relaxing a little bit before going to bed I had quite a crisis going on, up to 2 am! Then of course I got sick too, fortunately not with the same as Matthew did, but I still spent the weekend with no energy at all. Anyway, I'm glad it's over and I'm happy to be active again!

On a happier note, I'm very excited I finally got around this series I've been meaning to start a loooong time ago when Tiffany invited me to guest post on her blog, remember? I've curated a list of pieces to style your 9 to 5 outfits and I'm styling (and remixing) them to show you that you don't need a huge workwear closet, just some key pieces and some smart shopping ;)  Hope you find it useful!
