Dress for the weather

40+ casual wear

Spring weather is a bit moody...

Sunshine one day, then sleet and rain the next. Or worse: a fresh coat of snow in the morning, just when you though you could burn all your winter clothes (or pack them away, which might be a better option for many reasons...)

Anyway, this is what I wear on a sort-of-cold-but-not-quite, almost-rainy day. It works, whatever Mother Nature decides to throw at me.

But could I wear this to work? Yes, I could, and I have. Of course, I work in a very casual (yet professional) environment, in a country with an extremely relaxed dress code. We dress for the weather. And the moody spring weather means anything goes.

  1. Dear Tiina, in Germany, spring is arrived. It is warm sunny weather, we need no parka at the moment.
    You look amazing in this spring color rosé.
    I wish you a great weekend, Tina

  2. Comfy-looking outfit. You have a more casual work-environment than me. I envy that.

    1. Yes, I can wear just about anything I like, and I don't need a separate work wardrobe. And casual or smart casual outfits are better for work because I need to create a relaxed atmosphere for my students.

    1. Thanks. I've had that scarf for a long time, and I can't even remember where I got it. But it's cashmere, and thus quite warm, too.

    1. Thanks! I know some people have to wear a more formal attire for work, but I'm happy to get away with quite casual outfits. I think it's so important to feel comfortable in work outfits, too.

  9. Our spring is all over the place too. 18 and sunny one day and then trying to snow the next.

    You look great in pinks/burgundy.
