Remember some months ago when I was a busy bee, working from 9 till 5, for my internship?
I do. Especially the first few days. As the fashion-minded type that I am the ' what to wear'  question was the first one that popped up in my head.
Was is going to be a formally dressed-situation?
Or just casual, would jeans and sneakers be fine? Or was it the New York 'The devil wears Prada'  kinda tight skirts with killer heels?

I think it's important to wear the right clothing when going to work. The outfit should 'match'  the company's appearance. For example, the gym: the employees should wear something sporty & flashy, instead of walking around in worn-out jeans.
Engelbert Strauss has a lot of different styles of workwear, just the right clothing for several types of jobs. And when your works obligates you to wear something specific, you might as well wear it with flair. Bright colors and neon pink, for example.
I'm curious to find out what you'll need to wear to work? Tell me!

I had a period in my life some years ago, in which I only bought heels. Some of them were items I could stare at for days after just buying them. That's why my collection is quite big.
But nowadays I don't wear heels that often anymore.
I threw a lot of shoes out recently. I kept the pretty ones, ofcourse, but some just had to go. I mean, a heel that looks like it's chewed on?
Also I dealed with space shortage. But my guess is that this will be the story of my life.
Because this post is all about showing off some new footgear: my new metallic silver ESPADRILLES!
