Office appropriate!


Pictures by Obedphotography

Ever found yourself wishing that the office set up could be more accommodating in terms of style especially when the weather is this gloomy?

Lately I have been there, I know most of us bloggers talk about layering and all for the cold season, but wait until you have layered the whole week and there is nothing more to layer. The dilemma of waking up and staring at your closet for close to thirty minutes wondering what to put on checks in.


Some jobs have a distinct advantage when it comes to just how far you can take the office outfit rule-bending. You must believe in your style and the skills it represents to break the rules and be a bit daring with your office outfits.

It is important to note that casual means polished when it comes to work environments and the existence of a very fine line between trendy and sloppy cannot be ignored but you can always incorporate some pastel hues and Jewel tones that are not too shouting to spice up your look.


Monochromatic pieces have always been regarded as a means of looking polished, classic and timeless, reason why most of my work outfits revolve around such colors.

Wearing a pair of brightly colored shoes or bag is a lot safer than wearing bright colored clothes which I tried to incorporate for this particular outfit and we all love safe zones but that doesn’t mean we cannot explore :-).

Kisses and stay warm :-):-*.
