What to wear at work



It had to happen sooner or later ...


The first day of work has arrived! 


The weather is still good and the temperatures are only a bit lower. So, what to wear at work? 
Not the dresses that have spent with me the summer : too light weight, too sleeveless,  always too something!!


Here you are  my solution:


A too short dress on a pair of slim trousers! 
The dress, after a wrong wash  ( how silly of me not to follow the directions!  ), became too short to be worn alone and has remained  sadly hanging  in my closet for a while .


Since it was a good quality item, I didn't want to throw it away, but really couldn't find a good Idea!  


Now, worn with the right accessories


it has a new life...


...and I have something perfect for work! 


So, I suggest ... never, ever decide too in a hurry on the matter of clothes!!

  17. I'm loving your "first day back at work" outfit. It will be my first day back at work after my break tomorrow, so I've got an inkling of what you were feeling. It will be a sleeveless dress for me, though, as we are having a mini heatwave here in Belgium. xxx

  18. Very glad that the heat has reached Belgium at last! Have a happy week ...
