Colour-Blocked Weekend Outfit

I was working last Saturday, so as much as I would have liked to wear a flowy maxi or a girly dress, I knew I needed to look office appropriate. Now I think I have mentioned this before but I’ll just say it again- the dress-code at my office (for Saturdays) is ‘smart casual’ which basically means ‘toned down’ casual wear. Faded/ripped jeans and garish prints are a complete no-no. So although we do have the liberty to dress-up casual on Saturdays, the outfit must fit the prescribed norms.

Now coming on to the outfit that I wore last (working) Saturday! I combined my sleeveless colour-blocked top (last worn here) with my dark blue skinnies. I added a teal cardigan to keep me warm against the stupid AC. I mean I don’t have anything against the AC, but then again sometimes it becomes too cold at work, and I like to keep myself warm and comfy J I really like how the cardigan (apart from keeping me warm) complements the top in terms of the colour-scheme. I’d just like to add that despite its colour, this cardigan has proven to be quite versatile, as can be seen here and here.

Now since there was (a lot of colour) on the top-half, I decided to wear nude wedges. And of course, I had to carry my tan bag to work (it’s just so convenient or I’m way too lazy to switch bags- you decide!)!

I like this top a lot and when I bought it I thought I’d get a lot of use out of it in the warmer months but this is the second time I’ve worn it. It was just sitting pretty in my closet! :/

You can see another colour-blocked shirt I have here.

Do you have items in your closet that sit pretty without you noticing them for the longest time?!
