Effortless Spring 2022 Home to Office Wardrobe Overhaul

Hi Everyone,

Woop woop the time has come to start thinking about Spring!

Many women are feeling complacent about updating their wardrobe right now. After all why spend the money unnecessarily. It’s now the second year where most time is spent at home in the same old sweat pants or leggings day in, day out. There is no need for a wardrobe update!


The time has come to pick ourselves up and prepare for Spring! The tulips are out in their full glory a definite indication that we too should join the party! Even adding only 2 new pieces to your wardrobe can really uplift your mood at home.

Todays post is about how to do an effortless Spring 2022 home to office wardrobe overhaul. With some great tips and tricks to buying pieces you can wear either at home and still feel cosy, or in the office and look chic.

Effortless Spring 2022 Home to Office Wardrobe Overhaul

I like to choose my home to office clothing carefully and classify them into four major criteria they must meet:


1. Comfort

One and the foremost criteria of this years Spring wardrobe has to be comfort.

Currently wearing navy stretch culottes combined with a stretch silk blouse and super soft navy cardigan (available here)  for  added cosiness.

2. Conversion to outdoors

How long it takes to convert an at home outfit to an outdoors outfit is another of my biggest criteria. After all you don’t want to spend half the day changing to simply go to the supermarket and at the same time you don’t want to go to the supermarket looking like a rag. Who knows who you might meet – smile!

I love to simply be able to throw on a coat and boots to my home outfit and know I’ll look dressed for the occasion.


3. Ready for Zoom

Let’s face it most of our lives seem to be spent with online meetings so isn’t it nice to be comfy and prepared for the spontaneous Zoom meeting.

I’m totally in love with pretty dresses for this Spring. I really felt as though I didn’t get to wear enough dresses last Summer and am determined to remedy that this year! This dress is the Dear Kudibal Alicia dress (available online here)

Please, please, no matter how tempting do not turn up to your zoom meetings in a simple sweatshirt or scruffy t-shirt. Doing so discounts your professionalism before you even start! The silky shirt looks professional whilst still feeling soft and comfy.

Which dress do you like best – the one above or below?

Both have a feminine yet super comfy touch to them. Both available online here.

My tip is to invest in a couple of new dresses for Spring. I really have the feeling that 2022 is the year of the dress.

4. A Cashmere Shawl

Currently in love with anything dusky pink especially the cashmere shawl in picture above (available online here).

Cashmere shawls are also the perfect date night piece. Have you ever dressed up pretty to go out and then found yourself freezing at the restaurant dinner table? I certainly have so one of these shawls has become a staple to take with me most places during Winter and the beginning of Spring.

Which of the looks above is your favourite?



Today’s outfits have all been sourced from an adorable shop just round the corner from where I live – La Tienda.

Andrea took over the shop in 2020 and turned it into the most adorable place to visit, have a chat and coffee and find beautiful quality timeless yet trendy pieces that will last. I love the story that she has a Finance background – just like me. Her Mum has worked in the store for many years and so Andrea basically grew up in the shop. When it was up for sale she felt she couldn’t let this wonderful part of her childhood simply slip away…

The La Tienda online store is open 24/7 and if there is something you are looking for but can’t find you can simply call. Shipping outside of Switzerland also available at extra shipping costs.

Hi! I’m Yvonne, a 40 something (wink) Kiwi, living in Zurich. I love fashion, travel, shopping and food – believing chocolate will cure almost anything!

  1. Very nice I love all 3 of your outfits and the shawl looks ever so nice and warm thank you for your blog always so nice to see

    Hope all is great with you.
