FASHIONHow I wore it


By November 13, 2018January 2nd, 20216 Comments

I remember a time when all professionals regardless of one’s industry had to wear a suit to work. Today however, there are so may interpretations of formal and business wear depending one one’s nature of work.

For the more ‘uptight’ environments, dark colours such as black, navy and blue are a must for everyday wear, but for the more relaxed work places, you can wear just about anything as long as it’s decent and presentable.

I went for a sleeveless striped dress with a front slit for this board room look. It is minimal in its colour, but still structured and feminine with a ‘bossy’ feel.

Especially for a sunny afternoon meeting, this dress is ideal in that it’s very comfortable yet sophisticated.

And… you can never go wrong with black heels for a meeting.

How do you dress for work place meetings? Is your environment uptight or more relaxed when it comes to dress codes? Leave me a comment below, I’d love to hear from you.

Till the next one,

Love and light..

    Anything goes at my workplace as long as its decent and presentable. Mondays i do a dress Tuesday i do khaki and shirt from wednesday its jeans with either plaid shirt, plain Tshirt or a free knee length dress. My shoes are loafers or sneakers from monday to friday. If a good week……i wear wedges on a monday.

      Lovely! I love that you have structure in your dressing. You reduce the time spent wondering what to wear on what day. Very clever. Thanks for sharing and for passing by the blog.

    It was to support other step mums in blended families because I had no one to talk to when I married my husband. I did it on my own for the first nine years. There was no internet or books that could advise on the issues. I struggled alone. Most people are not open about their step motherhood as well, including some of my friends. This does not help the children accept it, and it becomes very hard for them to adjust to this new family setup.
