So it's been a while since I posted workwear on the blog. A while as in... nearly 2 years. But as you might know if you follow me on Instagram or Twitter, I have a new job! So I'm back commuting and I'm back to workwear!
Today was my first day so I snapped these photos before rushing out the door for the bus. The bus because... my new job is digital content co-ordinator for Stagecoach! It's back home in Stockport so my commute is a little longer than the five minute walk to work I've enjoyed the last year or so, but I'm really excited to get started in my new role! Plus it will be ideal for Phil and I next year when we buy a house as we're looking to move back to Stockport.

I'm a little bit in love with this outfit. I spied these trousers online a few weeks ago in M&S and dragged my Mum in so I could have a look at them over the weekend (how things have changed - me dragging her into M&S!). I loved them - and the identical brown and black pair - instantly and had to buy both pairs. As I said before, it's been a while since I've had a dress code for work and to be honest, most mornings at Axonn I just grabbed a pair of jeans and a jumper, so I need to think ahead a bit more with work outfits. When I worked at Frank back in 2012, I used to keep a pair of heels under my desk so I could wear my pencil skirts, but these days I'm too impatient to totter around in heels and I'm too short to be able to wear pencil skirts with flats, so printed trousers it is!In other news, I'm still not quite marathon recovered - I still have niggles in my hip and foot, but I'm really hoping to give running a go this week. I'm going crazy! I did manage an hour of weight training on Saturday and yesterday Phil and I played badminton, so I'm getting there. I'm just in a real catch 22 between wanting to run because I'm going crazy and I have a race in 4 weeks, and also being worried that if I run too soon I might end up properly injured.
Runners are crazy folk aren't we?
