Back To Work...

If there is anything good about having pneumonia it is the rest.  For a working girl like me though it means facing a tough return to the office after a long absence.  I did spend some time over the weekend trying to read thru some e-mail that was beginning to collect dust in my "in basket" but my other routine responsibilities were largely waiting on me when I returned to the office this morning.

I truly LOVE my job so this is both a blessing and a curse.  I do not like feeling like I am behind in any way but at the same time it is really nice to be returning to my routine... to my version of "normal."


It is still "Dallas Chilly" today, at least it was this morning.  When I went out for lunch it was far more comfortable but we all knew it was October this morning.  Hee Hee

So how does a fashionable girl begin her first day of work on a chilly October morning?

My beloved tall black boots by Born, of course.

I have shown you these many times and I have bragged on the comfort of any pair of shoes made by Born so many times as well... BUT they are both just so wonderful... I cannot help myself.

I am telling you, go to either, or for a wide selection of the newest Born styles.  You will thank me later.

If you read my blog regularly, you know I have another pair of tall black boots that offer a little more interesting embellishment around the ankle.  Simply put, they are cuter boots... BUT they are not nearly as comfortable and these do just fine at the office... thank you very much.

What do you think?

I first showed you this lovely polka dot jacquard skirt from AT LOFT back in September.

As I mentioned, fellow blogger Saucy Glossie debuted this skirt on her blog and I just HAD to have it.  Before you could count to ten I had "linked" over and purchased it... at full price!

What do you think?  Worth it?

Personally, I love the skirt.  Wonderful cut.  Beautifully subdued polka dot pattern.  Lovely.

I see years of love and attention for this recent acquisition.

I think it goes really well with my boots, too.

How about you?

I paired the skirt and the boots with another of my often worn wardrobe items... this lovely rose colored sheen blouse.

I think the sheen fabric makes it a little more sophisticated.

Plus, it really seems to "pull out" the polka dot pattern in the skirt.


What do you think?  Good choice?

And the completed ensemble...

Well, that will do for now.

It has been a LONG first day back to work and I do not mind admitting that I am a bit tired.

Probably off to bed soon.

No funny or interesting stories from today anyway.

A lot of "welcome back" and "glad you are feeling better" from all.

It is nice to be made to feel so welcome.  So missed.

Hope You Had/Have A Great Day!
