Work wear with a splurge of orange sheer today. You know what they say about the cat being away the mouse will play, right? Well our bosses are off at the national conference, so I busted out the colour. A nice break from the monochrome wardrobe we normally adhere to around here.

This sheer orange top {with camisole} is from Crossroads. It’s got a dipped side hemlines which makes it great casual wearing. And tucked in it works as a bright corporate escape. Paired with my ever faithful Moda {Target} skirt and Emerson {BigW} heels. The Emerson heels are falling apart and are currently taped together with double-sided tape until I can get them repaired. Sigh. $30 shoes don’t last as long as they used to.


What would you wear if you’d been in my shoes today?

    Had you not said it was sheer I never would have thought that it was.

    • Very true, it photographs more solid than it is. Great colour though, don’t you think!?

  • You look sensational. I am entering the world of black black and black and grey. I am going to break out with the hot pink ffs…

    • Thanks lovely! Feeling great too.

      Ahh, corporate blah. The joys of real estate offices.

    Love the orange! And I love the Emerson brand a Big W.

    My fav summer dress this year is Emerson dress. Gets worn at least once a week and it’s already on its second rotation this week!

    • Me too! I have a dress in a similar colour.

      I WISH I could fit the Emerson clothes {maybe one day soon} as the stuff this season has been AMAZING. I’ll have to satisfy myself with shoes for the time being. 😉

  • Woo sexy lady! I’d probably have worn a pencil skirt, fitted maternity blouse and wedges. Being a short lady, i love me some wedges!

    • Thanks!

      I was just like, errrr, maternity blouse!!! WHAT!? Popped over to your blog. Congratulations lovely. So happy for you. xo
