Working girl


Working girl
This is, in a nutshell, my ideal office outfit - if only I could afford it! I've been dying for some nude pumps for ages, but haven't found a reason to justify such an extravagance yet (you may wonder why I consider nude pumps to be an extravagance - I can't quite explain it, something to do with looking very grown up maybe). The star jumper adds a breath of fresh (night) air to the whole look, and layered on top of the clean cut silk blouse and pants, adds just the right amount of coolness to keep the outfit real.

I have always liked the idea of having a proper divide between office and casual wear, but have never really managed to translate this fantasy to my world. I end up dressing the same whether it is for work, going out or chilling around the house (true story and yes, my office is THAT casual). How about you guys, do you dress the same over the week-end as you would in the office? Or is there a clear divide in your life between play and work?

    First of all, I adore your blog!
    Second, could you give us a hint as to what job you do? is it in fashion? would love to know more about it because you mention it a lot.
    Anyway, thank you for posting, always a pleasure to read you.

  2. @Elle: boy do I wish I worked in fashion. No I actually work in finance, at a hedge Fund to be more precise. I have to admit it's not what I want to do in the long run. I studied law and was desperate to move over from France so kind of went for the first opportunity that came about. I now need to start thinking seriously about applying elsewhere. I'm thinking maybe fashion PR or advertising. What do you do? xxx

  3. Loving this outfit!
    My office is casual too so I can wear whatever I want. =) But my weekend wear is usually pjs because I don't go anywhere, haha :p
