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.

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

      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.

    I like that term for the weather – "moody." You look great here and ready for most any temperature change. Thanks for linking up, xo-Pattihttp://notdeadyetstyle.com

      Well, snow one day, rain the next, then sunshine… and then the whole thing again, a few times.

      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.

      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.

    I love the colour of your coat, and it looks so warm and snuggly. The striped top and leopard print scarf look great together. Thank you for linking up to Style With a Smile :-)Emma xxxwww.style-splash.com
