The second round up of a new series where I look back over the past month’s fashion choices and provide a snapshot of the best the month had to offer.

I must admit that I’ve been browsing the sales and online stores much more than I intended to, but thankfully the ‘unexpected’ purchases that I’ve made have all aligned with the style goals that I set myself for the year. Without a doubt, the highlight of this month are the Dior slingbacks that I’ve finally ticked off my wishlist. I’m planning on doing a dedicated blog post on them shortly.

On the work front, I was able to catch my breath and get stuck into some advice work that had been banking up. June was a bit manic with many late nights and urgent court deadlines. As many of you may know, I’m currently on a 12 month secondment as in-house counsel of a public sector organisation. The pandemic threw a bit of a curveball into my secondment experience and I’ve officially spend longer at home than I have in the office. Despite that, it’s been a real eye-opener working for another organisation, particularly in public service, and I strongly encourage you to take on secondment opportunities if they’re ever presented to you!
