COLLARED WITH LEATHER

TRANSFORMATIVE WORK WEAR
Uniqlo shirt (similar here & here), H&M skirt (similar here & here), trench coat from Korea, Schutz heels, vintage Gucci doctor satchel
Although I didn't wear this exact outfit to work (I wore it with jeans instead), it serves as a nice transformative outfit from the office to a social setting such as happy hour. I purchased this collared shirt with the intention of wearing it to work but have been surprised at the amount of times I've worn it casually away from the office.  I have though always been one to mix-and-match articles of clothing together to see how many variations of styles I can create. Thus, a collared shirt's ability to be worn professionally, then with some added sex-appeal with a skirt instead of some pants makes this outfit perfect for those on-the-go with eventful plans after work.

BACK IN BLACK

SHEER UNDERLAYS OVER CROPPED OVERLAYS
Zara cropped sweater (similar here) & sheer long-sleeved top, H&M suede shorts, Zara sandals, Louis Vuitton Neverfull 

Apologies for disappearing off the face of the earth the past few months, but I'm back! I still can't believe it's been November since I last blogged. My life got incredibly hectic attempting to balance full-time work + full-time school, while trying to maintain a social life that blogging ended up getting de-prioritized. Thus, it totally felt refreshing being back out, blogging again. I've had this semi-cropped black sweater hanging in my closet for the past few days now anticipating a time to wear it. Its not everyday that I want to wear high-waisted pants, especially during winter where all I want to do is stay comfortable. Thus, I resorted to an easy fashion fix, layering. While layering over a button-up seemed too preppy for a typical Monday, I resorted to this sheer long sleeve tee (also worn here) which has also been getting neglected in my closet for the past few months. Talk about a day of pampering the neglected.
