What to wear when working from home: Adidas sweater & Brocade with a pop of pink

'Tomorrow makes me curious' is printed on my notebook. I choose it for my notes exactly because tomorrow & the near future does make me curious! This week I have started a professional course to specialize further in (my current workfield) medical occupational health. The coming months I'll won't be doing much else besides studying Dutch social law, ergonomics and many many things occupational (there is no English translation for this profession -Arbeidsdeskundige- because it only exists in the Netherlands) I'm loving it!

Comfortable sportswear is easy to wear when working at home but I like my homewear to be elegant and colourful, made of nice fabrics. I do not even own a pair of tracksuit bottoms! This Adidas cardi is somewhat of an exception in my wardrobe, bought on a whim a few years ago. It has proved it self very useful though. It is mostly draped over the chair behind my desk to pull over my shoulders when I get cold after sitting still for a while (I know as a proper occupational health person this is actually a sign that my body need moving again, but alas!) I decided it deserved a proper styling. So here it is: teamed with chic brocade trousers (featured in this post), a slinky pink top that matches the classic Adidas triple stripe and pointy black flats. What's not to love? Mood improving straight away and that's why I bother, even when I'm stuck at home with my textbooks for company.....
