The sun is shining, and although it is still chilly, outdoors is screaming S P R I N G.
I will STOP here …I do not want to jinx it!


Instead let’s talk about this checked shirt. It is a recent addition from the Hallhuber haul, which I scored for a fraction of the price.  Since everyone in blogland seems to have one, I might have bought two in different colours, as this shirt is a must-have staple which I was missing from my wardrobe.

The style is modelled on a man’s shirt: a classic collar and two breast pockets. It will work nicely with a pair of tailored pants, or a pencil skirt for the Office. On the other hand, the pocket flaps and the button plackets close with snaps , and the hem of the shirt is rounded; so it can be worn more casually. It will look very cool when worn untucked, or left open with a top underneath for the warmer days!

Today I wore it with a pair of dark wash jeans and to upgrade the look from an easy & relaxed combo into a more Office friendly outfit, I accessorized it with a gold statement necklace and a pair of heeled boots. DOES it look Officy enough?

On a different note I would like to share with you a funny anecdote from today: This morning I went into work all geared up to start my first German lesson of this semester. Knowing I would be stuck in the classroom for 4 hours listening to (without understanding) my German teacher, I carefully chose this outfit – as it’s easy, comfortable & relaxed.
It was perfect! EXCEPT that when I turned up for the lesson, after a little chat (in Italian) with the teacher, I was informed that my German lesson was TOMORROW and I was sitting in the Italian class. And there I was…all smiley & thanking my lucky stars that my German teacher was an Italian native (very common here) with whom I could chat in Italian during the German lesson…how moronic was I?!!
And now I have to go back tomorrow…what a great excuse to wear the other shirt!






How gorgeous are these boots?

    I don’t think this is very country at all. I love the dark plaid shirt. We are seeing bursts of Spring here and there, also.
