Black and White Shift Dress.

Hello everyone, long time no see!
When I wrote last Friday that it’s going to be intense weekend it turned out in something completely different. I’ve got sick (terrible flu and sore throat) and still are and got fired for no given reason after being loyal employee for so many years. As you can see I needed some time for myself and I didn’t had any physical (fever) nor mental (stress) ability to do anything. Anyway life goes on and as long we are all healthy I firmly believe that everything is going to be better.
In other news I’m glad that we did some photos before I got sick so I have this outfit to share with you my loves!
I just love the idea of a shift dress with oversized cardi or shift dress worn on top of the blouse (will try this next time), which make you look modest and relaxed at the same time. Add some sparkle here and there and voila you’re all dressed up and ready to go. Simple and easy, just as I like it!
How are you dressing up your black & whites?

    wonderfully styled monochrome look…the dress is so perfect…and the print so eye-catching…and I like how you paired it with that black cardi.

    Sorry to hear the bad news…but I agree with you…as long as we're healthy, things will work out…there are many unpleasant surprises in life and nothing can be done about it.

    Oh Tanya, I'm so so sorry about what happened, sounds like you had a terrible week. I hope you'll fully recover from the flu soon. It's terrible that your boss didn't give you any specific reasons for your termination! I was retrenched from work once because the company was close to bankruptcy, I felt horrible to be jobless but at least I know the reason for it.
    Hugs, hopefully everything will get better for you soon. xx

      Life goes on, I'll find something better, I'm happy to have great support from my family and it's all that matters to me now)

    So sorry to hear about your rough week. It sounds like you have a great attitude about it. I hope it all works out and you are able to find another job you love. I love your black and white. It's definitely a color combo I have been going back to over and over lately.

    I am so very sorry about your week. I really really hope that you feel better fast….. and am devastated that you were fired. What's with that? No matter what else you do, which I am sure is very substantial, YOU my dear certainly brighten any office with your style, your grace, and your glorious smile. It will be a very dark place without you. I know that you will rebound, because wonderful people know how important it is to make others around them better, and the first job prospect you have will realize that as soon as you walk in.
    Get better fast my dear

      Thank you Jayme for your support!
      I'm finally recovering from the flu and already have some plans for the future, and preparing my resume of course))
      It was unpleasant surprise from my employer, but I think that maybe it's about time for me to start searching for a better place!
      You are very sweet and I really appreciate your comments and wishes, I really hope all will be great after all. It's a life experience and I always try to find positive sights of everything that is happening)
      Thank you for your support once again, I really appreciate it!

    I love the dress and the cardigan! I used to have a similar cardi years ago and seeing it here reminds me how much I should add one again to my wardrobe.

      That's great news, oversized cardigans are so versatile!
