All change... with the weather!
With the weather being so changeable at the moment, it can be a bit of a challenge to know what to wear from one minute to the next.
If, like me, you need to keep dry when it rains and warm when it's cool, here are a few of my tips:
Keep your feet in:
Ankle/shoe boots or at least closed in shoes like on-trend brogues are the thing for now. If you must wear sandals or cute heels, carry them with you or keep them under your desk.
(Note: I am not 'natural' enough to condone the 'wear your trainers to work' trend!)
Get a big bag out:
Pick the right one with these tips (http://damsonbelle.blogspot.co.uk/2012/09/im-bag-lady.html) but remember, whatever else it is, it'll need to be big enough to carry everything you might need including...
...My number one accessory of the moment: An umbrella, obviously. Go for a bright one as you'll probably need it to cheer you up in the rain!

But, you should carry your sunglasses too, so that you can instantly look more spring-like when the sun comes out.
You probably don't want to be wearing your winter coat in May, so go for a shirt under your dress or a light cardigan under your jacket for example, and a wear a scarf around your neck (PS: make it a bright one in the right colour please!).
Whatever you're wearing on your bottom half, I learnt a valuable lesson this week: Have a pair of socks in your handbag - light to carry and warming in a 'I got soaked coming back from lunch' emergency.
And finally, just a little reminder to take care of your skin and protect it from the elements... there are lots of them!
Stay warm, cool & dry peeps!
