OOTD - Business Professional Edition! ♡

Dress: Marks & Spencer (it is still available at the store!)
Black Blazer: H&M
Bag: Longchamp Le Pliage tote in black

Just recently, I attended an open day of a city law firm in London and was required to dress in a 'business professional' attire :) I have always been slightly confused about dress codes because even a 'business' dress code can be divided into business causal and business professional, and depending on the environment of the firm, I feel that a business professional dress code can be more complicated than it seems (some firms might be more strict about colours and the length of your dress/skirt, blazer/ jacket vs cardigan etc.) 

In the end I came up with this outfit :) I wasn't too sure about the colour of the dress at first as I feel that some firms might prefer neutral colours, but since my dress is in a really light pastel blue colour I feel that it is still appropriate. There are also little white jewels on the neckline which adds a bit more to the dress in a very subtle way ♡ The dress actually does not completely cover my knees but since I quite short I can sort of get away with that :P For my bag I was carrying the Longchamp Pliage tote :) I think that it is a typical work/ school bag and should be modest enough for any firm ♡ Plus it fits so much which is always great!

For shoes I just wore a simple pair of black heels which were about 2-3 inches :) I think they are probably the safest choice for a business attire ♡

Makeup-wise I personally think it is usually better if you put a bit of makeup on to look more polished. I have heard of firms that require makeup but my personal view is that as long as you look tidy and put together it should be fine :) For hair I just left mine natural but I think a topknot would also be great, and for some occasions when you might meet clients a ponytail also never fails to professionalize a look!
