|Cap: J.Crew, Blazer: Striped Spinnaker Blazer, Anthro, Necklace: F21,|
Jeggings: UniClo, Boots: Steve Madden
At some point, I realised that working at the call centre doesn't really call for dressing up - at all. One of my colleagues always showes up in a lovely shirt and cashmere sweater - and trackpants! Because we do so much sitting down there, wearing something without buttons and zippers on your bottom half definitely helps make your workday more bearable.
And so, I came up with this concept I like to call, "School of Not Giving a Damn" - it's a bit like School of Rock, but with less singing. Basically, I tell myself that nobody cares what I dress like there, and then I try to put together some things that disguise that comfort factor a little bit. I mean, leopard print and stripes are always nice together, right? And chambray shirts go with everything. And for each of my "SNGD" outfits, I try to add in at least one, sometimes two, nicer items, to "lift" the whole look - in this case, my Steve Madden boots and striped blazer from Anthro.
Anyways, how do you prefer this outfit - sans le hat, or avec? I couldn't quite make up my mind either, so I took pictures of both versions. I guess you can just scroll and look at only the version you like - or if you like both, that's what we'd call a win-win situation, I guess! Of course, if you like neither, then I guess you'll just have to check back tomorrow!
The two best bits about this outfit were that a) I got this necklace and this blazer back into my rotation, I'd kind of forgotten about them for a while there, but I do love them both and it's nice to be all obsessed with them again and wearing them all the time. And b) literally nobody even said anything about the leopard jeggings I was sporting. Nobody. So I guess it's just a matter of time before I turn up there in my bright pink track suit with the angel wings picked out on the back of the sweater in little studs... *
*Well actually, this will probably never happen. Much as I'd like to.
