NO HEADLINE FOR THIS ONE


Dress - Wings by Vadumsrum
Belt, bow, shoes - Vintage


Advantages of working from home:
You can get up late
You can go on a two hour lunch
You can take a healthy brake from work every now and then and take care of some chores at home, organize the closet in case of a sudden lack of inspiration or so.

Disadvatages of working from home :
You get up late, you work late until the middle of the night
You go on a two hour lunch; you work two hours more into the night.
You surf the web, blog around a little bit, read the paper and try on different combinations of dresses, shoes and eyeshadow. You don't do the dishes, vacuum or organize the closet and you propably don't work as much as you should.

(But hey, I did come up with the idea to attach my oh-so-versatile bow to my belt and it looks quite nice. I'll be sure to remember that at three A.M when I'm still sitting in this very same position by my mac...)

Hee hee. I've always thought that working from home would take GOBS of discipline. Do you get lonely, lady?

The flashes of fashion inspiration are a nice bonus - the bow is fab!

Sal : Sometimes I do manage my selfdiscipline to such a level I actually do a nine-to five at home... But I don't get lonely no, since I nowadays I only work at home every second week :D

I work at home and ditto to everything you said. The day before yesterday I cleaned a shelf off in the closet that I've been meaning to do for days. Then I worked an hour longer that day. Sigh.

Still, I like working in my comfy clothes!

Shrinky Inky : Good that you still cleaned up your shelf!

After I came home from the lunch I removed my belt and bow and let the dress hang loose. Between stylish and comfy I go for comfy! (well, only at home but anyway :)

When I have to write a term paper, the kitchen and the bathroom are always clean...I have to force me to work 8 hours without a great break. But after that, I feel so good because of my discipline...
I like your dress!

I worked from home for a couple years and I completely hated it! I didn't have the willpower to stay on task for long, and I'm someone who likes to be around people all day so it was really hard to be alone! If I didn't have anything to do at night, some days I'd spend the whole day alone. And I just couldn't handle it!

I always have to leave my place when I have to get something done.

Ilona said...

Freelance working is just like you described it - never get things done in time! And my home looks like a tsunami had gone over it :) The interior in your picture looks really cosy and elegant at the same time.

I would never have the self discipline to work from home, so I admire you to be able to do it. But then again, it's not much of a treat to get up half five to go to work for seven. You never seem to be able to win :(

I am very familiar with the disadvantages of working from home, trust me :-(

You have an award on my blog! ;) Kisses

The bow does look quite nice indeed attached to the belt, in fact you look lovely period!

mateo said...

I think the bow looks great on that dress. And I'd much rather work from home.

sueper said...

Working at home needs some discipline but you can work on your own tempo!
Great look (as always)

esme and the lane way said...

How true are they – I work from home too and discipline isn't always my strongest trait! I love your dress and the bow.

As usual, pretty!
