Making A Statement

This has been the most trauma-tizing week ever!! As if being required to wear flats everyday wasn't horrible enough, the company I work for updated the dress code. Basically, I'll have to wear a black company shirt with dark jeans & get this, "Hawaiian Blue" Vans (featured at the end of this post). This look is unprofessional & I have no desire to work for a company that supports unprofessionalism. Needless to say, before this policy kicks into gear, I'll be settling in at a different company. There's no way in hell I'm wearing Vans. A company who decides to take away my fashion creativity deserves not to lose a great employee. Plus, I never wear tennies other than at the gym & I'm not starting now. Traumatic huh?! Told you. (& yes, I am crazy enough to quit a job over bad fashion.)

But anyway, I chose a simple outfit & palette the other day. I haven't posted this necklace on my blog yet & wanted it to take center stage. Can't really go wrong with black, white & grey. What do you think?!

Tier Today, Gone Tomorrow

I wore this outfit yesterday. I'm smiling because it was FRIDAY! Nothing is more exciting than knowing you have a few days away from the office. I went for something a little casual- skinny pants, flats, cardi. I chose the tiered top to add a little oomph to an otherwise boring ensemble. My favorite photo of this outfit is the last one. I like how it shows the movement of my top & the sequins on the pockets of the cardi. It just goes to show that nothing is ever too simple when it comes to my clothes!

No Smiles, Must Be Monday

I wore this outfit to the office a few weeks ago. I threw it together basically as I was running out of the door. I must say, I'm slightly pleased with the look. When it comes to making outfits work appropriate, I believe a cardigan is one of the best ways to do so. Luckily in my line of business, I don't have to be so corporate/professional & I can get away with wearing anything except jeans. I just wish I didn't have to wear flats. Career change?!

I also tried not to smile in these photos & seem mysterious, but it only makes me look mad, so I'll smile from now on. What are your go-to's for work?!

Borrowed From The Boys: Preppy

My outfit today was inspired by, get this, the boys. Preppy ones to be exact. Since moving, I;ve noticed lots of guys taking the time to add little unquie touches to their outfits (trying to catch up with the ladies, fellas?!) There's something I really like about rolled up khakis & bow ties. I though I'd put my own little spin on this look because after all I am a very girly girl. Instead of wearing loose khakis, I opted for a skinny legging like pair and cuffed them four times. I also couldn't bring myself to sport a bow tie & decided on a statement necklace. Of course, I'd never rock oxfords or loafers, no matter how "in" they are. So pairing this look with leopard flats made it more me. I plan on styling a similar look- I'm thinking jeggings, sandles & a scarf. Stay tuned!!

In case you were wondering, I would not date a guy who dressed like this. I would simply admire his impeccable style from afar or attempt to make him my new bff. Just btw.

Sneaky Sneaky

Outfit post!! I borrowed the office's camera today on my lunch break. Shhh, don't tell. Hopefully, I'll be posting more since I've discovered this camera. My coworker & I literally ran outside for like 5 seconds & took these. We're so sneaky. I think next time, we'll play with the settings because the lighting is definitely off. But we'll figure it out. Enjoy the quick post & anticipate the next.

Black, White & Thai

Yay, an outfit post!!!! I actually found these on my computer. I originally wasn't going to post these because my hair looks weird (it's in a ponytail). But since these are the only pictures I have, I thought I'd share. I wore this outfit to work (duh) & out for Thai food a fews ago. It was my first time having Thai food & i must say, it was delish. I've been wanting to go back & I think this just may be the week it happens.

Well, I need to start preparing myself for the upcoming week, blah. Hope you had a great weekend!!
