Stopping to smell the roses

Dearest BusiChic,

I hope that you are well!

Do you ever stop and smell the roses? Do you remember to take a break?

I think that these are really important things to do in order to keep ourselves in check.

Whenever I ask people who juggle families, work and pursuing their interests, “how do you do it, all?” The response, more often than not, is that sometimes things get dropped just a little.

So I am really so sorry to do this to you but I’ve decided to take a break from posting for the rest of this week. I’m moving house, busy at my dayjob, working on new projects, editing photos on an insanely slow computer and am out every night for work, play or re-connecting with loved ones. Hopefully after this post and a wee break, I’ll come back up as fresh as a daisy with a whole bunch of work style inspiration for you!

As for the outfit in this post: on Smart Casual days at work, I like to do a chillax-ed take on workwear which here means a silky-soft shirt Clara sheer blouse with Floral Detail by Her Pony. I’ve had emails from BusiChics asking for “affordable” fashionable pieces to wear to work and so I can highly recommend Her Pony for pieces that you can wear to work or on the weekend – it’s all in the styling! In case you’re wondering, I’ve teamed this blouse with Gorman pants and sandals; can you tell that I’m going through a purple phase?!

You know, I think I’ll start my blog break by palming off the rest of this blogpost to the smokingly gorgeous Sam of Style Paws who has a great interview with Her Pony designer, Lauren Stein, up on her blog PLUS a giveaway! Check out the Style Paws x Lauren Stein/ Her Pony interview here.

Hope that you have a great week, BusiChic – see you next Monday!


  1. Are you sure only a week!? But it’s good to take and break and re focus – helps to keep things fresh and interesting!
    p.s. I notice you are on the hunt for a perfect LBD? We have nearly 100 or so listed in our Ebay store – they are vintage and the quality is just lovely – maybe you’d like to have a look?

  2. Loving the season fitting blouse. Your look is relaxed but still chic and professional! Have a great break!
