HOBBS AT HOME

If you've been swapping polished pieces for activewear these last few weeks our Product Director, Sally Ambrose, can relate. Here, she reflects on how her daily routine – and her wardrobe – has significantly changed since staying at home.

ON HER PRE-LOCKDOWN STYLE

If I were to describe my usual work wardrobe it would be: effortless, contemporary and versatile. Because my days varied so much – breakfast events, developing new products or reviewing campaign photography – being both smart and comfortable were key. Normally, I would wear a simple black dress or chic blouse and tailored trousers, but always have an immaculately cut Hobbs blazer on the back of my chair for last minute meetings.

ON HER NEW AT-HOME ROUTINE

My day now starts with an early morning walk for some fresh air and it's so uplifting to see how nature is flourishing as always. Artist David Hockney recently said 'you can't cancel spring' and it's so true! So I tend to reach for activewear and a pair of trainers first thing. Then I'll change into a simple top and jeans to work from home in – but it's back to the sports gear in the evenings. I've always played outdoor sports, so doing a home workout is the next best thing!
