This week I went for more of a professional look compared to my usual wishlists. After enviously looking through everyone's London Fashion Week outfits, I have been thinking about what I would wear. LFW is such a great time to wear something that you wouldn't get a chance to wear in your everyday life and since I never have cause for business type looks, I think this is the type of look I'd go for.

Suit trousers aren't something I'd regular go for so I opted for these ASOS high-waist cropped pair so that way you're still showing a bit of skin. These trousers are such a bargain at less than thirty euro, they're so plain and versatile that you'd get such great use out of them. Since the outfit is quite minimalist I thought I needed a focal point and this Miss Selfridge blouse with the huge bow around the neckline is perfect.

I don't particularly suit tailored blazers and I didn't want this outfit to be too business-like as this outfit is more street style than office chic. This Topshop kimono blazer is great for keeping the look smart casual. Unfortunately it's seventy-two euro, so I couldn't afford it in my wildest dreams, but I suppose it would be quite a staple wardrobe piece. I chose this Oh My Love Whitepepper platform sandals because frankly I can't bear the thought of wearing a pair of heels all day. I was torn between these shoes and some plain black heeled pumps, but as I said... just couldn't deal with heels all day. Platforms are so on trend right now and they're a great way of adding height without the pain of high heels.

Any professional look needs some practical, fashionable accessories. This leather handbag from The Italian Leather Company is great for any professional woman on the go. It has rings on the front to hold an umbrella/newspaper, the main inside compartment and two pockets on the front for your mobile phone or diary. The inside compartment has two compartments, a business card holder and a pen holder too. Not to mention it's made from real leather. A bag like this is great investment for anyone looking for a long lasting stylish yet useful bag.

Next is this Nasty Gal watch, the fact that the leather band of it matches the bag was purely coincidental, but they really do go together. I know people don't have much use for watches these days it seems with phones and tablets, but I quite like a good watch. Then these Missguided oversized hoop earrings add a bit of glamour to this outfit. I've had quite a love/hate relationship with hoop earrings over the years, now I've made my peace with them though and I think they can look quite classy when worn in the right way. Finally are these Kukee stackable rings. I think I feature Kukee in nearly all of my wishlists, but they're just so affordable and gorgeous.
