Hello world! 😀
It has been so long since I did one of the work outfits posts. Why? Because I am still a little embarrassed about the idea of doing these posts. Today I am like what the heck! I have clicked them, might as well make good use of these pictures. You know how long it took me to realize that? Well, these pictures are from last summer, so, yes, almost a year! And, no, I did not forget about having clicked these. 🙂
Anyway, here are 7 work outfits and, as you will see, I love it when I get the maximum use out of a single clothing piece, for me this means that I am getting experimental, and, of course, it gives you more number of outfits for less money. 😀 Honestly, I sometimes feel that even if I was a princess or something, I would never have liked the idea of wearing a garment only once.
Back to the outfits, as you may know by now probably (from previous work wear posts), I hate it when women wear stuff to work that is ‘fashionable’, ‘trendy’ or ‘stylish’ as per their aesthetics, which does them more harm than good. What I mean is that women already face the challenge of not taken seriously at work and, then, you give the other gender enough reasons to not take you seriously by wearing, what, noodle straps to work? My point is simply that proper work wear doesn’t have to be boring, you don’t have to dress too-in-your-face to look good. Let me know if you agree and definitely let me know if you don’t, as that would help improve! 🙂

I loved the skirt and the tops. I like the feminity of blouses. In US the workplace will be so casual that you can wear shorts and flip flop as well to work. Mine has a business casual code with some people dressing up to the formalish end. I feel I have told you this before. But we have guidelines that we can’t be flashing when we sit and can’t show shoulders. Sleeveless is fine. ‘No UGs’ has been written twice. Lol
Anyways, my 75 yr old boss Dennis started wearing a suit daily since Dec and I have been wearing blazers, dresses, skirts, all that too. I feel awesome the day I look good and I work better somehow. Plus, it looks professional when customers are here. Few guys have also upped their game by wearing slim fit shirts and tie daily. Not bad I must say. 😉
I will email you my clothes selfies if it looks good.
yes, yes, yes PB do send in your pictures!! 😀 and i know what you mean with work culture abroad, here in India, i hate it when people don’t consider even blouses formal! but see-through tops with b*a straps showing is a clear no-no in my opinion, not because its vulgar or anything, it just doesn’t seem serious enough. and ‘not bad i must say’. ooh, yeah, definitely not bad. 😉

I don’t usually buy branded footwear ( except heels :P) mostly because I found the street shopping wale footwear of better quality.
i know what you mean, but their footwear is quite sundar for the price, so people do get tempted, buy them only during sales 😛
Hehe … 😂
Point noted! 😆
Loved the 1st and 2nd picture. 2nd is best and i would advice u to wear it on your most important interview :p.
Well, people always admire skirts of Perkins ; they specalise.
haha, thanks! Indian companies don’t really see skirts as good during interviews yet!
Ahh.. That might be your observation but it seems harmless to me
