Ugh, I did not want to go to work today! For those of you who had Easter Monday off, I envy you!

Although I didn't wear the dress at all without the cardigan, here it is.
It's handy having dresses like this that you can just throw on. Holiday that's not a holiday? A dress!

Indeed, Monday can be a long day after an extended holiday weekend. Still your outfit looks inspired even as you may not be too energetic. I love the Asian print with the red cardigan. The gold shoes are magical.ReplyDelete
I’m not familiar with that dress designer. I’m going to look it up because I really love that print. Have a great week ahead my friend.
Thank you, Elle! I liked this whole outfit, even though it wasn't terribly exciting. I'm glad you're seeking out Birds of North America - you will see that they are all Canadian made, and an ethical company! They specialize in prints!Delete
The print on that dress is fabulous, what a shame more people didn't get to admire it. Love the red coat with it and those super cool metallic shoes. xxxReplyDelete
Eh, I'll wear it again, I'm sure! Thanks, Vix!Delete
I'm afraid I'm one of those people who had Easter Monday off. And the rest of the week of that matter. I'm already fearing the day I have to go back to work. But wearing an easy, yet fabulous dress, is the trick, it seems. I'm loving the gold shoes and accessories you've paired it with, and that red leather coat, too. xxxReplyDelete
Oh, lucky you! A whole week more to go! Enjoy, and don't think about work, Ann, that's an order! Thank you, my dear.Delete
A little more leg than usual -- I approve! You've got the gams for it. :-)ReplyDelete
I'm wearing nylons! Not quite as exposed as I look. Ha, from the Queen of Gams, that's high praise!Delete
Lovely dress. Today I did the same as you usually do: I wore a short dress with a pleated underdress just a little longer.ReplyDelete
Thanks, Greetje! It's a great way to add more length to a short dress or tunic!Delete
Love the gold accessories with this Sheila! It's a shame you had to work but you looked great despite not being in the mood for working, haha!ReplyDelete
Thank you, Mica! Ah, it's on me - I didn't really want to take the extra vacation day.Delete
Those shoes are gorgeous! They go beautifully with the navy dress and gold bling. One thing though, are you not in danger of tripping over those extra long toes?ReplyDelete
Hope your week goes well...
No, the toes haven't bothered me at all! It's nice for my toes not to be squished - I predict I'll be buying more shoes in this family!Delete
I love that whole outfit. I'd wear it in a heartbeat!ReplyDelete
Thanks so much, Mim!Delete
lovely idea to wear a dress for comfort (and to cheer up the day!) and such a lovely dress. Those shoes totally rock and love how they look with this dress and red cardi. This touch of red color enhances everything!ReplyDelete
Thank you! I love the shoes - can't wait to wear them again.Delete
Only Sheila could call a minidress, a red leather coat, and regal golden shoes, unexciting!ReplyDelete
Ha, you are right! Mustn't be so hard on myself.Delete
You make it look so effortless... yet you look like a million bucks. It's all about having the ability to look fab by putting the right pieces together and you can do that with your eyes closed.ReplyDelete
Aw, thanks, Lorena! These kinds of easy dresses are the key!Delete
Those shoes are bloody awesome! No outfit could be boring when finished in such a stylish and opulent manner my dear. You do set the bar quite high you know xReplyDelete
Thank you, my dear! They are so sweet - no one saw 'em, though, so I wore 'em again very recently (this past Friday).Delete
