He remembers those vanished years. As though looking through a dusty window pane, the past is something he could see, but not touch. And everything he sees is blurred and indistinct.

Summer work outfits for women over 40

A superfast post from me tonight before I head off down to London. A reader, Sally, emailed me this week and said that she was missing my weekly work outfit round-ups because she finds them helpful, even if I do repeat things. So that made things easy, here goes: this is what a Head of Marketing & Creative wears for work….

Midlifechic…off to the land of Eastern Promise

Oh it feels as though it’s been a long week. Here’s a quick update on what I’ve been doing. As you know, last weekend we went down to London to undertake the task of sorting through the belongings of my friend who died a couple of months ago. It was a very strange thing to do. If you’ve ever had to do this sort of thing, you’ll know that you go into a very operational mode. I think it’s a way of…

Now on Quarterly: Rachel Yeomans

Our newest curator is known for her hit blog and wide-ranging tastes; you might even say she “can’t be put into any one box." If you said that, however, it would be ironical. Rachel Yeomans has an eclectic array of interests, but they will most certainly be put in a box… A Quarterly box. 

On her Forbes-approved blog, The Working Wardrobe, Rachel has won over readers with her fashion sense (in her words, "stylish with a dash of nerd”). She’s also a tech obsessive, a book lover, and to top things off, a wine aficionado. That sounds like a recipe for great Quarterly boxes, and we’re really excited that Rachel is now live on the site!

What I wore this week – work outfits for women over 40

I’m back, another week over in this busy new world of mine. It’s all workwear this week – I spent last weekend celebrating one of my favourite friend’s 40th birthdays. Love her though I do, her idea of fun was to spend the weekend in the wind and the rain watching rugby matches (she plays hooker for Cumbria) so, given the weather, the photos were a bit of a no no!

What to wear for a new job?

What to wear for a new job?

Oh it’s good to be back in my blogging haven – it’s been a long week starting my new job even though I’ve only worked for 3 days. Friday is my day off which will be a luxury, I’ve never done a 4 day week before. So this morning I’m luxuriating in not having to set off for an hour’s drive. I started on Tuesday and didn’t feel nervous but did feel very unsettled, almost homesick in fact. Although…

anonymous asked:

I graduated college recently and thankfully have a really great job and work wardrobe. But now I have a lackluster weekend/casual wardrobe. Now when I go shopping I end up just buying more stuff for work (a lot of blouses and cardigans) without realizing it. Whats a good way to start building a casual wardrobe? I never put much thought into this until recently and now that I have some money I'd like to buy quality clothes that will last but are also stylish. Any tips?

thank you for letting me answer this question; i get a ton of inquiries about creating an office-approp wardrobe but never the opposite and if there is anything i know best it is casual garb. (if i could put “weekendwear expert” on my resume and still be taken seriously, i would.) with as much jersey in my closet, i’ve experienced a ton of brands and narrowed them down to a handful of favorites.
