Happy Sunday guys, hope you are having a good weekend, so here are a few photos I took over lunchtime last week.
Office wear at my workplace is rather drab and pretty peculiar to say the least. Aside from one lady who has a penchant for Kenzo style skinny trousers and tunics in bright colors and a few girls who have quite a pretty lady-like style, the majority stick to rather uninspiring ensembles.
Friday (off day) is the day of the biggest offences: where one can witness spray on jeggings, converse with black leggings and jeans skirts (on 40 year old + women), oh and my favorite black ripped leggings with patent red sandals and shiny pink nail polish (kill me!!!).
Every morning I think of ways to be original without looking too unprofessional. Sometimes finding inspiration is very difficult to be honest. Especially as very few blogs aside form 9-5 chic and myfashiontale do cool workwear. One rule is that whatever I wear should ideally work with flats, I walk to work and HK is super hilly, so heels are out of question. Under my desk I store lots of heels for when I need to be more presentable or have a meeting. As the shoes are usually lying around in a very hazardous fashion I have been known for running into a meeting with two different shoes (I would just slip into the first shoes I would find under my desk without looking, afterwards I would be greeted with surprised stares in the elevator, as I would look down I would see a red and a nude shoe... Ooooops).
Outfit: a super old Massimo Dutti shirt (5 years and counting), I have worn it so many times that one of the sleeves ripped so I had to crop it, my new skirt from Club Monaco (I call the pattern lady-like tribal), my old Gucci belt that I absolutely adore + super comfy Repettos. (Bracelet Uterque, glasses Prism, bag PS1)
