I usually pick my clothes out the night before so I have a little bit of time to plan what I'm wearing. But on Tuesday night I stayed online quite late helping out at Church Online. It was busy and fun, but I was so tired when it was done. Just grabbed some nice easy pieces - can't go wrong with a printed dress - and the same bag I had the day before. Meant there was more time for sleep, even if you're not supposed to pair black and brown together!

The video at Church Online this week is a really moving one, answering the question "what can I do to help?" for the survivors of disasters, and the tornado in Oklahoma. Please check it out online if you have the time.

Last worn: brown jacket, French Connection printed dress, patent flats, Marc by Marc Jacobs Fran bag.

There have been a lot of celebrations at work recently after the success of our project, today was another with a casual dress day for a team event in the afternoon. We were warned there would be a lot of paint around, so I wore my washable converse shoes, jeans and a knit. I thought it balanced the line well between casual clothes you wouldn't mind getting paint splashed on and casual clothes for a free dress day in the office!

Last worn: red knit, singletJeanswest jeans, converse, Alexander Wang Rocco bag.
