Eyelet can be dressed up and up and down: from casual to office to ocassion (by day, but ocassion anyway):
|Broderie Anglaise for Errands by Caroline Grant. Flats are the go-to shoe when you're running errands, at least for me, plus a roomy handbag that can be kept out of the way if you tuck it under your arm. Denim jackets can be put on and off and unceremoniously stuffed in your bag if it's too warm to wear them. [Style: Ladylike with a twist].|

|Broderie Anglaise for the Office by Caroline Grant. With the right shoe (not too open: try a slingback, like here, or a d'orsay, but not a strappy sandal or a peeptoe unless the dress code where you work is relaxed, with hosiery) and a blazer, broderie anglaise is great option for th office, provided the neckline is not low. A silk scarf is good protection for your throat in midseason and against chilly air-conditioning, if it is big enough to turn into a shawl. [Style: Ladylike with a twist].|
