Photos taken by the absolutely gorgeous Sonia De Macedo from Daring Coco

With my incipient status as a doctor (I can officially scrawl the two-letter prefix to my name as of next week!), the concomitant wardrobe changes have inevitably been considered. The unfortunate reality is that my often whimsical aesthetic will have to be tamed within the pragmatic limits of the hospital milieu, which means a resultant influx of pencil skirts, pussy bow silk shirts, and pointy kitten heels into my daily routine. I don't usually post my professional looks on the blog (mainly because I feel they are prosaic and repetitive) but since so many of you have asked me what I wear to work, I may consider it for next year!

This is an outfit I wore to a recent congress in Melbourne, a reasonably demure ensemble with a few contemporary touches (I have a relentless love affair with the perspex heels that I bought from the ever so lovely Lady Petrova - visit her gorgeous little store if you're ever in Melbourne!) where I spent the afternoon on the Yarra River with Sonia (of the beautiful blog Daring Coco) in a daze of hazy sunlight and post-high-tea-induced-euphoria (at The Langham, obviously).

Love, Mandy. xx

  1. ooh you are stunning as always Mandy!! I'm about to start a full-time job next year so our wardrobes will be pretty similar I guess haha. although knowing slobby me it will probably start getting into cheap flats and Kmart work shirts or something lol.

    I adore your skirt- the transition from pencil to ruffles at the bottom is so cute! :)

  11. Such cute shoes! Also, no one's complaining about the influx of all of the above into your wardrobe - quite the contrary - but really, why do they have to be called "pussy bows"?!
