Office Classics and After Work Casuals



OFFICE CLASSICS - AFTER WORK CASUALS

Versatile in navy blue, white and red


Do you think about and lay out your clothes for the next day the night before? Most probably not I assume. I did that when I was at school and even made little sketches (obviously that was well before Polyvore collages...)

Nowadays I don't plan ahead unless I have something special on my agenda but for a normal day in the office, I first step out on my terrace and then in front of my wardrobe and then dress according to the weather and my mood. When in doubt, I always go for a classic look and basic colours. I know a lot of women are quite passionate about stripes and I do like them too and have a couple of pieces in my wardrobe. This is an old top which I paired with a very comfortable stretch skirt and a white cotton blazer. Together with patent-leather peeptoes this is an appropriate summer look for the office (here is another office attire).

What I love about these basic pieces is their versatility. After work, I just swop my heels for sneakers or slippers and the blazer for a denim jacket!

Casual summerlook in a maxi dress



SUMMER AT ITS BEST

Maxidress and flip-flops for an escape to the lake


I just love our hot summer this year and I am enjoying every moment outside. We have a couple of small, scenic lakes in the area and whenever I have a chance I go there at night when there are less people and have a swim. Even better now while my daughter is here over the summer break and joins me.

These days I wear my maxi dresses a lot, they are so comfortable and easy going. This one is from Athleta and I paired it with colourful jewellery, my straw tote from one of my travels to Thailand and golden flip flops from Accessorize (I also love these from Nine West and Nordstrom) - an ideal outfit for warm summer evenings.

Sandy, thank you so much for this lovely dress and all the best for your and Mike's return to Canada!

Black and golden summer evenings



BLACK AND GOLDEN SUMMER EVENINGS

In love with my Anthropologie top


A couple of times I have mentioned how much I enjoy our current hot summer weather and I have recently shown you my summer office look or my casual boho style.
Today it is all about an elegant evening outfit for a party, drinks or a dinner invitation. I am wearing an embroidered tunic top by Anthropologie (from my daughter's closet) paired with silky black trousers, golden sandals and a straw clutch.
This is an easy styling - go for a fancy top whether it is embroidered or sequined or has a unique cut or colour. If you prefer a more low-key version, opt for all black accessories. For an elegant look, pick the colour or an attribute and repeat it in your accessories like I have done with gold.

WHAT TO WEAR IN THE OFFICE IN SUMMER


OFFICE LOOK FOR HOT SUMMER TEMPERATURES

Stay cool yet dress appropriately!


I'll never complain about the heat but I still have to go to work...
In Germany the majority of offices are not air conditioned and working in a hot and sticky office is definitely a challenge these days! Personally I am lucky as my office is facing west, I have a balcony and leave the door wide open all day long which makes it very endurable.

BOHO PARTY LOOK FOR A SUMMER NIGHT



PARTY LOOK FOR A SUMMER NIGHT

Wide leg trousers in black and white


#heatwavegermany - that's the hashtag I currently use for my Instagram photos and I love it! Living in Bavaria's mountain region makes it more durable anyway since temperatures cool down at night and I wake up to fresh, clean air in the mornings. I hope this weather will stay forever...

Summer evenings also mean BBQs and drinks and this weekend I wore my daughter's wideleg paisley trousers and a black top. The trousers are super comfortable and the wider top doesn't stick to the skin but is light and airy. I love my chunky silver statement jewellery and always get a lot of comments on the necklace from Mango. Unfortunately it is sold out but there are some great options by Free People and BaubleBar (on sale!)
