What to wear when working from home: bomber jacket, boyfriend jeans & pointy flats

When I'm working at home I don't want to feel like the mad woman in the attic (that's were my work space is) but I needn't dress like I am about to deliver a presentation to the BOD. See my theory on the freelancers-trap in the about page of Fashion Sabbatical Dress.

We all know how it is done, we have all read it in our guidebooks (think Style Forever from Alyson Walsh which is a truly great book!) We all know how to dress down a showbizz item and look cool and not overdressed in it during the day. So I put theory to the test and wore my tattiest pair of jeans with a luxurious silky bomber jacket with the this-goes-with-everything-Breton-striped-top. Finished the whole look off with funky pointy shoes and was amazed! It works!

I found this lovely blue and black patterned bomber jacket in the sale last year. I love bomberjackets (have a look on my Pinterest board on bomberjackets for more inspiration). I wish this one was reversible; I love the lining! I find bomber jackets very versatile and easier to style up or down than a blazer. I have another shiny one which you have seen on the post Glitzy bomberjacket pre-Christmas last December and a few plain ones.
The shoes are made of crackled leather in a shade that seems to adjust itself to what ever you are wearing. They are really comfortable or I just happen to be lucky enough to have sturdy feet, but I can walk in these all day  (OK, granted, I've spend most of the day behind the computer)

As you can see, I'm holding the remote control for the camera in my hand. The focus is still a hit & miss process, I'm afraid. See it as work in progress.....
