today was the official start of school and I have seen so many cute little ones excited for their first day and all that comes along with it.
Most of the parents also started working again after a long Summer break so I wanted to share some really fun and beautiful office gadgets to make back to work more bearable. I for myself am still on maternity leave so everything I got to do on the computer (personal things, bank stuff, blog work) I do right at my little desk in the living room (we have a room we use as an office but since Covid hit us my husband is using my brand new office as his – you win some you loose some am I right?!).
Since we all spend so much time at our desk we definitely should invest in the little things to make it look cute and put a smile on our faces while working.
Are you back to your office or are you still working from home?
Staying organized and ahead of the chaos is a huge prority for me and a good planner is totally necessary for that. I had the Erin Condren planner last year and totally loved it but you need a new one every year so I was looking for a more sustainable solution and came across this planner from Filofax which is called the Filofax Domino Soft Planner. I originally gifted it to my husband and liked it so much I ended up getting my own.
The outside is made of a super soft leather which is available in so many pretty colors. I think it is super affordable for the fact that you could keep it for years to come.
Not only the outside is pretty but the inside can be as well. I got the 2020 calender inserts for my planner in this gorgeous purple floral design. There are different flowers for every month and I think it is so pretty and definitely a highlight for the whole year.
Filofax offers inserts for a ton of things. Whether you need a lot of blanc pages or you need extra contact information, list or different kinds of calendars. You can get post its as well as inserts for documents and pens.
Another thing I always get for my planner every year are a ton of stickers. I just think they are super and make it a lot more fun to plan ahead.
So let´s conquer the year ahead of us and make our goals happen.
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?
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.
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.
