Teal Capris, Lace Blazer, Sandals
Top : Truworths
Pants : Woolworths
Blazer : Noblewear from a chinese store
Shoes : Legit (Similar availalbe at Shoe City)

Bangles : Various

I am so taken with the white capris I bought that I indulged in a teal and red pair as well. 
I went through 4 different options of tops to wear under the lace blazer and for the first time, I wished it were 15 cms longer this morning.  I first tried a tank with a gold sequence design, then a grey spaghetti strapped top before settling on this dusty pink with rose border top.  Although our work environment is fairly casual, I always feel a little awkward if my shoulders are exposed – yes, very old school I guess.  I’m also of the opinion that unless your have arms that look like Michelle Obamas or Regina Kings, you need to rethink it twice. 
My hairdresser is having a special until the end of the year, colour, cut and blow with an option of a R100 top up of 6 foils for R500 … since my hair is going to need a little neatening, I may indulge in the foils – I’m thinking Summer holiday – time for a little lightening around the face.
Well, its off to an interesting start at our office today – so let me get on with the day.
Hope yours is fabulous.

    The capri length on you is sooo flattering. It displays your natural femininity in all its grandeur. Great to see you embracing it.

    LOVE the blazer ~ I agree about the open shoulders.

    Wendy, I don’t think I’ve ever seen a lace blazer before – love yours! While I don’t have any problem with sleeveless at the office, I agree that bare shoulders are probably a bit too casual for a business environment.
