High-low hem

I'm linking up with Patti over at Not Dead Yet Style for her Invisible Monday - I think these gorgeous new sandals are super 'un-invisible'.
I did no preparation for this weeks outfits, much less did I even think about them this weekend.  So, this morning, I opened the wardrobe and one of the first items I saw was this high low hemmed dress.  Hmmmm thought I, I can wear it with my new shoes and this little short sleeved jacket.  It was so hot this weekend, I was convinced our offices would be like saunas today.  However, without a jacket, this dress is not quite office appropriate.  Since I work in a very relaxed environment, with people slopping around the building in really tatty jeans, I could probably get away without a jacket, but I'd feel super uncomfortable the entire day.

Bronx shoes 
I previously wore this dress while the weather was a little cooler with a long sleeved jacket and red court heels.  I quite like it with the blue though, but black and red is always hot in my opinion.

This is proving to be an interesting work week already and I have taped my little '5 Ways to be happier at work' as received from Jon Gordon at the bottom of my screen to remind myself to be positive

1. Monday - To focus on what I 'get to do' instead of 'have to'.
2. Tuesday - Don't expect my boss and co workers to make me happy (I already know that - but it's a good reminder all the same)
3.  Wednesday - Don't seek happiness - share strenghts, decide to work with passion & purpose.
4.  Thursday - Focus on excellence instead of success.
5.  Friday - Celebrate together - build a positive team/support group.

Hope your week has started off well ... what all do you get to do this week?  Enjoy


  1. Oh those sandals are fabulous! And they look wonderful with that skirt. Great look!

  2. Great look, Wendy - I think that fab dress goes well with so many colors. And your Monday - Friday tips are *so* excellent, I am saving them for my office! Thanks for linking up to Visible Monday.

  3. Fabulous! How about those sexy heels! The skirt is awesome. Love it both ways.
    It's strange that I'm putting away skirts and short sleeves and you're doing the total opposite. When it gets cold and I'm bundled up, I'll be wishing I was in Africa!
    I'll have to remember the 5 ways to be happy at work....great!


Thanks for taking the time to leave a comment - I love hearing others feelings and appreciate your time. Please be honest - BUT kind.

Have a fabulous day now and I'll be coming round to visit you as soon as I can.

Thanks again, Wendy
