Hello my sweet and sweating friends,

(post contains affiliate links/Werbung/Markennennung/Beitrag enthält Affiliate Links-not sponsored)

how´s it been the so far? I have to admit that I am very happy with nice weather but it doesn´t have to be necessarily hot. My favorite season is Fall cause the air has finally cooled down and freshened up and nature shows its beautifullest colors. I am gonna stick with that. But as long as it is hot we still have to go to work everyday (the fewest can take off the whole summer time) and sweat our butts off.

If you are lucky you have air-conditioning at your office. I work at a listed building which means I have few to no chances of getting an air condition ever. My husband has one at his office but one of his collegues is always freezing so they are only able to turn it on when he is out on appointments. Not the best either. But there is one thing you can do for yourself to brave the heat or maybe a bunch of options. Also while you are dressing for summer it shouldn´t mean you start dressing unappropriate for your work environment. Wearing less and shorter clothing doesn´t help much with staying cool.

How to dress for the Summer Heat

  • don´t go bare shouldered or with thin strappy tops  (unless you are in a very creative space and people don´t mind)
  • make sure your skirts aren´t to short
  • dress in looser fitted pieces (you will sweat less when your body can breath between the fabric)
  • these are you key materials for summer – silk, chiffon, linen
  • wear sandals (if office appropriate and allowed)
  • pin up your hair (it helps not to overheat by having your neck free to breath)
  • shorts shouldn´t be showing off your buttocks

How is your work environment in the summer months ? Are you a lucky one with AC?

Take care. See you.

Good morning you guys,

I am soooo looking forward to tonight. It is the final of the Bachelor of 2019 (Germany) and I want to know which lady gets the last and final rose. I have a tendency but let´s see if I am right. Also the last bits and pieces of the snow seems to be gone by the end of the week so there is one less thing to bother about.

Office Style

Today´s look is my first spring office look (just ignore the snow in the background of the pictures) I am sharing this year. I got this adorable pair of rust marlene pants back in November and couldn´t wait to finally wear them but it started snowing and in my opinon you really have to wear heels with it. First of all because of the super wide leg, it only extends your legs if the fabric falls nicely and second of all you don´t want to get the hem of your pants soaking wet, dirty or at worst ripped.

I paired it with a all over flower printed blouse including lots of different colors which is always nice cause it gives you various options to pair with. The bag I am wearing in the picutres above is the Tory Burch Gemini Link Tote I got myself for my birthday and I love it. It is super practical and holds so much stuff. The perfect bag for shopping, running errands or the office.

As always thanks for stopping by. Take care . See you.

Good morning guys,
(post contains affiliate links/Werbung/Markennennung/Beitrag enthält Affiliate Links-not sponsored)
how is it possible another Monday and where has the weekend gone. I really can´t believe it. Although I have a short week and one more day off than usual this week, I dread Monday like nothing else. I am just always so tired and unmotivated when I get up and the cold and dark winter mornings don´t help much either but I am working on that so let´s hop over to some Monday morning office inspiration.
It always depends on what office standards you have so you can wear what you like. I am at a more relaxed office now which makes it pretty easy for me but the dressing rules at the law firm I worked before where pretty strict.  So I think this look would work for both places. Maybe just swap the fishnet tights for opaque and you are good to go.
A knit dress in an appropriate lenght and a versatile color can be a great basic piece for your office wardorbe. It can be combined with different types of jackets and boots or even with pumps and no tights.  You can wear it from fall to spring and also without a blazer jacket it looks really nice plus it is super comfortable to wear all day.
I combined mine with a plaid blazer jacket – I call this my professor blazer as it has the typical plaid pattern and ellbow patches, always feel so british when wearing it – and a pair of color matching patent ankle pumps. I absolutely love burgungy and wear it a lot throughout the fall and winter as it pairs so nicely with a lot of different colors. That is why I got myself this DKNY handbag a few years ago since I was sure it would match with so many of my pieces of my wardorbe and it really does. I have worn it a lot this season and am not done now.
So I am hoping I could give you some work wear inspiration for this cold and gloomy Monday. We are all in this together so let´s get another cup of coffee and tackle that day.
Thanks for stopping by. Take care. See you.

Good morning to all my working girls,
(post contains affiliate links/Werbung/Markennennung/Beitrag enthält Affiliate Links-not sponsored)
I am sharing a long overdue post in the work category today. As you might know I am working 4 full days of the week at an engineering office and therefore I always have lots of stuff with me which normally includes my phone, keys, charger, wallet, my makeup pouch and another one for other things like hand sanitizer, pencils, gum.
 I also have my Erin Condren life planner with me along with my breakfast, lunch and a small snack for in between, as well as my tea bottle and two water bottles (I need this much stuff because there is no way of getting food at my work place and we are also in the middle of nowhere so there is nothing around).
 Most of the food/drink stuff is in a small separate basket but let´s think of the possibilty of also carrying your notebook or tablet in your handbag too.
 
I got this beautiful yellow satchel (color is called safran) bag from my husband for my birthday last week and loved it ever since. Not only do I truly love the brand (it is from Lauren by Ralph Lauren) and wanted to own a bag of theirs for the longest time but I also love the rich and vibrant shade of yellow. This will go with so much different looks I can´t wait to style it differently.
Don´t hesitate to use color for your office looks. If your color palette for clothes is more on the nude and/or darker side add a pop of color by a beautiful handbag. A red or even a vibrant 
 
For this and also for the fashionable reason I have rounded up a bunch of great options for your “office bag“. I would always pick a hand bag with a well made bottom that stands for itself. If you can see right inside it, clutter won´t be produced by searching for stuff. 
The perfect modell differs a little but I wouldn´t stray to far aside from a shopper, tote or satchel bag. I have listed my favorite finds for each price category since we all have different point of view on money and the worth of a hand bag for one personally.
The look I am wearing has become a go-to for me this winter. A comfortable knit midi skirt paired with a cute sweater, boots (preferable super cool statement boots) and a colorful bag. Of course I am wearing a jacket when I am outside but that would be a nice look for a more casual day at the office or even the wekend.
