Hello all!

Isn’t this weather glorious? It’s been a funny old week for us; we’ve officially launched our new online Step Up School (very large High Five to each other) and we can see that our new online learners are all chatting already, not to mention working through their bundles too, so we’re feeling good about life.

As a little reward to ourselves, we have just done our own bit of online personal therapy: a quick whip around our favourite shopping websites. You know us, we love clothes just as much as we do careers, and that means we’ve been chomping at the bit for the sales to launch. Actually, not everywhere is on sale yet (we’re talking to YOU Zara), but that hasn’t stopped us. We did this for your winter wardrobes, and now with this email, we want to take the hard work out of your summer sale shopping too.

So without further ado, please scroll on for the pieces that are on both of our wish lists or sitting happily in our online baskets. Ok, some of them are already in our wardrobes at home too. It’s safe to say we’re going to race you to the best bits, so on your marks, get set… SHOP.

Massimo Dutti Skirt, £44.95 (was 79.95)

This is such an easy go-to for my working wardrobe, and my weekends too. I’ll dress it up with block heels and a blouse, or wear with some slides and a t-shirt for downtime.

H&M Earrings, £6 (were £9.99)

I’m a sucker for some sparkles around my ears. Especially when they’re such great value.

And Other Stories Dress, £81 (was £110)

It’s floral, it’s midi length and it’s in the sale. I’m in on all fronts. I’ll keep this going in the autumn too, by layering over a fine knit polo neck and with thick tights and boots underneath.

See By Chloé Top, £120 (was £200)

Texture is a great way of adding some personality into your wardrobe, especially if you work in a more sober environment. This top says, feminine and understated, without looking overly young or girlie.

Maje Sweater, £167.30 (was £239)

I love this! Often, women think that they can’t express their femininity in the office, I disagree. This would look great under a chic trouser suit, or tucked into a well-structured skirt.

J. Crew Skirt, £123 (was £205)

Tulle isn’t just for ballerinas or charity galas. I will wear this skirt all year around with a selection of slim jumpers, or blouses depending on the weather. It’ll also be great with a denim jacket and camisole.

Mango Jumpsuit, £29.99 (was £59.99)

Yes, I love jumpsuits, mainly because they make a statement without me having to put much work in. This print is fabulous and the shape is easy enough to withstand even the longest working day. It’s a winner.

Eseential Antwerp Sweater, £119 (was £170)

I’ve always been a fan of the slouchy jumper and long skirt combination. Comfortable, easy going and with plenty of scope for print and colour, I actually love this entire look and will wear it with wedge espadrilles or trainers depending on the occasion.

Topshop Wide Leg Jeans, £55 (were £85)

I’ve got to say, I wasn’t sure when I first saw these jeans. But the yellow beading and wide shape kept pulling me back. I’m a diehard denim addict, and I am always on the look out for jeans that work hard for their buck. These are glorious. I’m sold.


Whistles Earrings, £25 (were £39)

Chic and minimal, these earrings won’t date and I’ve felt them (definitely not heavy), so they won’t tear your ear lobes either.

H&M Dress, £25 (was £49.99)

Shirt dresses are having a moment and it doesn’t seem to want to pass. This is great news because the high street is being especially inventive now, and that means great prints, easy shapes and easy-on-the-wallet prices too.

Dodo Bar Or Blouse, £95 (was £190)

I mean, this is literally the dream. Wear on holiday. Wear to the office. Wear on the weekend. Wear out for dinner. Wear to a festival. Wear when you’re shopping. Wear to the playground. I could go on…


Until next time!
