|Dress: Madewell, Shirt: H&M, Necklace: J.Crew, Belt: Vero Moda, Boots: from Norway|
I remember being so happy the day I wore and photographed this outfit. My shift at the call-center got postponed, so I got a surprise day off, and the first thing I did was skip home and get my camera. Now that I look back at this outfit, I can see that maybe I could've done things a little differently - that belt, for example, doesn't exactly go with everything else, does it?
But at the time, I loved it, and just felt so happy wearing this ensemble. So just looking at these pictures makes me grin, and forgive myself for a bad belting decision. I have made worse decisions in my life, after all! My hair had also come alive and decided to behave like an octopus! You can barely see I'm wearing a fancy necklace at all! But never mind.
Anyways, I have another reason to be happy - or rather, two. Because a really good temping agency called me today and put me on their books - and they've got me an interview for a receptionist job on Monday! Six weeks, very decent pay... I am just so stoked that life finally seems to be getting back on track! So fingers crossed they will like me on Monday, and offer me the job!
I could walk to this place from where I live in 30-40 minutes, and I am already planning my British Office Outfits in my head. Because there are certain unwritten rules to dressing for British offices - and a lot of it has to do with the colours you use. Or rather, the colours you can't use, which to be honest is most of the colour spectrum. I'm keen to make a good impression with this one, so if I get it, I'll tone down my style for sure.
And if that doesn't sound like a child's promise to Santa, in exchange for the super-special present they want, then I don't know what does!
