WIW : Back to Work!

Hi Ladies,

Well, day 2 back at the office and I think I will post about that Off Topic!:)

A warm day today and after two sleep challenged nights I just wanted comfort and ease.

This is an easy breezy layered ensemble:)

The dress is a soft crinkled tank style dress, fitted but not body con.  Over that I layered a soft draped tank from Metalicus and then over that a sleeveless drape vest.  The vest and dress are from my favorite little boutique here that have a lot of these sorts of items that drape and wrap and work well with my wardrobe (not as good as my beloved Metalicus tho lol).  Note all layers are quite light.

The outfit felt great but I, unfortunately, have felt rubbish all day.  Glad to be home and hanging out with my style buddies:)

Don't hesitate to share thoughts on how to improve, add to, or do it differently.

Thanks for looking.

xxx Deborah

    That's a lovely breezy summer combination Deborah. Sorry your day was rubbish though. I fear it is going to be one of those years on the workfront... "challenging" shall we say ;)

  • Dimity replied 5 years ago

    Sorry to hear you haven't felt great. It's horrible not being able to sleep properly. Still, you pulled together a very stylish outfit and look fab, so at least there's that.

  • jenanded replied 5 years ago

    Very stylish! How great our style formulas come to the rescue at times kike these...

  • Karie replied 5 years ago

    There is such nice layering and draping going on here. So sorry you had trouble sleeping, hopefully tomorrow will be better.

  • approprio replied 5 years ago

    I love the subtle mix of textures here. And that bee... so perfect! Sorry you felt rubbish, but a great outfit never fails to lift the mood, don't you find?

  • kkards replied 5 years ago

    love the artiness of the drape and the way you have played with both the layers and the textures of the fabrics! 
    but i'm sorry that you were not feeling your best, i hope that you feel more like yourself soon.

  • frannieb replied 5 years ago

    the mix of textures is lovely. Gray out looks wonderful on you.
    Sorry you feel like rubbish - and i hear ya on the job front - my job is quite challenging this year and YLF is one of my shining lights that makes me smile.

    No improvement required Deborah. You are looking perfectly stylish in your distinct way as always and your bee necklace finishes the look beautifully. I'm on the same page with lack of sleep....hopefully tonight is the night for a good, long deep sleep.

  • shevia replied 5 years ago

    You look great - the dress is the perfect length on you. Hope you get some sleep and feel better!

  • celia replied 5 years ago

    Nothing to improve here. I love the movement of the outfit and the layers.
    Hope you are feeling better now.

  • Angie replied 5 years ago

    I love the way you layered the flouncy tunic vest over the sheath frock. A cohesive and gorgeous pairing, Debs.  

    Glad you're back at home to recover from your grotty day. xo

    Great outfit - love the creative idea of how you layered things here - really nice!

    YLF Deborah!  Good luck with your return to work.

  • Style Fan replied 5 years ago

    You look amazing.  So sorry that you felt so bad.

  • Caro in Oz replied 5 years ago

    No improvement needed - YLF - hope today is better :)

  • AM replied 5 years ago

    I'm not feeling very inspired by the new spring looks -- but your spring style has my wheels spinning! Love it.

  • jackiec replied 5 years ago

    I love your long layers, deb! And always love that pendant. I'm sorry you're feeling not-great. Hope you feel better. It's hard going back to work after holidays.

  • replied 5 years ago

    I am loving the texture of the skirt part of the dress - very cool.  And I've been thinking about jewellery and accessories today (a few blog posts people have done over the past couple of days) and appreciate the very personal touch your big diamond bee adds to your look !  Love him/her :)

  • Joy replied 5 years ago

    This is such a fab warm weather outfit. You work magic with those draped layers.

  • Suz replied 5 years ago

    What a gorgeous outfit. No one would ever know you were feeling awful. I hope you feel better soon. I adore the layers here -- and the subtle textural mix. It really adds to the effect. 

  • Deborah replied 5 years ago

    Thanks for our lovely warm words ladies.  We have a situation at work which is very 'unhealthy'.  I will elaborate more off topic, but after three ways leave I have come back to an unpleasant situation which surprisingly seems to be impacting me more than I expected.

  • Beth Ann replied 5 years ago

    You look confident and relaxed in this --- like the length and the bare arms.  So sorry work is challenging right now!

  • gryffin replied 5 years ago

    Deborah - so sorry to hear that you are under the weather.  Going back to work after such a long leave would be shock enough but being unwell and then having to deal with drama would send anyone into a tailspin.  Wonderful outift and glad you got to enjoy looking fab even it it was stressful.  Hope that you physcially feel better and that the work problems are in a better place soon!!  Hugs!

    OMG this one is really a masterpiece of draping! Just G.O.R.G.E.O.U.S!
