(Back To) A Working Day

Going back to work after three weeks off (and on a typical Brussels grey day) can be quite traumatic. Better to do it in style.

  1. Oh well and you definitely did it in style! I love how you tied the scarf ( note to myself to try it out!). And trust me, I worked all through Christmas and January has been just as traumatic :(

    Hope you kickoff to a great start!

  6. I like that silk blouse and the scarf, the colour combination is perfect.

    PS. I agree with you on Tilda Swanson. She's never dull, always dresses a bit edgy and is so true to her style.

  7. I love the different types of textures you've used in this lovely outfit. The silky top with the knitted cardi and the metallic edging of your bag. The shape of your skirt is adorable!

  8. A very chic back to work look. The muted colours really work well together, and that cute cardi with the silk shirt underneath tucked into that lovely shaped Carven skirt - just perfect. I hope your Monday went well!

  15. Really stylish! I loved your skirt, wish I found one like this now!
    Well, I go back to "normal life" (whatever it is... it's more like "the life I prefer") in 30 days! And can't wait for it!

  16. I love this outfit, the skirt is gorgeous! I've been looking for something like that and I also love your blouse. It was just as gray of a day in Chicago... Hope your first day back wasn't too bad, after 11 days off the first day was rough :(
