Corporate granny chic

This is what I actually looked like at work, i.e. sitting at my desk, the other day: reading glasses on, coat over my shoulders and quite smartly dressed (for no reason other than that’s how I felt like dressing that morning).

The chain on my glasses is soooo granny chic but I wear it because it’s practical – I only need to wear glasses for the computer so if they’re not round my neck I’m always leaving them places and losing them. I usually have a coat round my shoulders till about lunchtime as the office doesn’t warm up till then. And although our dress code is pretty casual I felt like wearing my scarf in a big bow with my new Peter Pan collar shirt secretary-style. Fortunately, the high ponytail stops me venturing into real old biddy territory – a hair bun (which I wear a lot) would be a disaster.

The combination of all these things adds up to a very business-chic look and hey, it makes me look my age (it’s the chain on the glasses’ fault), but who cares, I still love the look all the same…!

    Catherine, I love your look and the title of your post. Granny chic–I really like that. The leopard belt gives you away though–not granny at all, just really chic.
