Skirt - ASOS, Tank top - & Other Stories, Loafers - Zara, Earrings - ASOS, Watch - Daniel Wellington, Lace bra - ASOS
Hey, remember me? Just thought that I'd remind you of my existence. It's just that I work 9-6 errday and once I come home, I usually just end up falling into my bed with my shoes and bag on. I need to figure this whole full time job x personal style blog thing out, but while I do that, I thought I'd send mental kudos to those superhuman bloggers who do have it all figured out.
While I am trying to cut down on the usual outfit chit-chat, I did want to highlight the fact that in this outfit I'm wearing two items that I never imagined I would wear, specifically loafers and a watch. For years I've avoided both - loafers were "grandpa shoes" and a watch was not required because iPhone, duh. Now that I've started working, I'm surprising myself by opting for unusual choices in regards to my outfits. The loafers were necessary because I'm only allowed to wear black shoes at work, but normal ballet flats kill my back and feet, so I tried to find a pair of flats that offer more support. These Zara ones had enough tassels and studs to look more rock 'n' roll rather than "grandpa".
When it comes to timing, I am always extremely punctual. I wouldn't quite call it an OCD, but I do freak out if I am 1 minute late. Now that I'm a working girl (YES, my life really does now revolve around my job), it's crucial to know the time. Access to mobile phone is limited during the day, so this Daniel Wellington watch came just in time. I chose the Classic Glasgow Lady watch, because I adore the combination of gold, white and navy. The black Classic Sheffield Lady could have been more practical, but since I'm new to wearing watches, I decided to go for something more fun. The watch has become an irreplaceable accessory as well as arm candy. If you'd like your own, you can use the code kristianas to get 15% off until the 30th September. Happy shopping!
