I realized I’ve been posting too much casual outfits these days. Let’s try something else this time. Here’s something to wear on a not so casual day. It’s something more relaxed than the usual blazer – long sleeves – tight skirt office wear. For companies with strict business attire polices though, this may be apt for dress down Fridays. πŸ˜€


For something more “formal” compared to cotton, wear a chiffon top. It’s equally light, breezy and comfortable to wear.


Since not all offices allow sleeveless tops, why not cover up with a relaxing kimono cardigan? πŸ˜€ They’re also fasyon like structured blazers.

I found this glittered kimono cardigan on sale at H&M when I was in Barcelona. It looked a bit weird on the rack, probably why there were a lot of stocks. Winter was also about to come so no one dares to buy such kind of clothes. Everything on sale was for me. Bwahahaha! πŸ˜€ Back at the hotel, I tried it on right away and it looked awesome! πŸ˜€


Then, pair your relaxing top with tapered trousers. It can make you look taller too. πŸ˜‰


This pair of shoes scream OFFICE, don’t you think? πŸ˜‰ Haha! I just found this in my closet and realized I’ve never worn it yet. It’s actually a vintage shoes from my aunt. I had this for more than 10 years. Prior to that, my aunt used it for years as well. Surprisingly, it’s still alive and kickin’- not one chip of leather! Quality shoes are really worth paying for. You can hand them down for generations. πŸ˜€


If you feel that office wear is boring (just like what I used to think), accessorize! Trust me, it brings life to an outfit.




Yes, I’ve been using the Timex watch, as seen here, and the tote, as revealed here. πŸ˜€ Hehe! πŸ˜€



Some pieces may look casual if you look at them individually. With the right combinations, you can transform that casual clothing to something smart. Over-all, it’s definitely not a casual day for me. πŸ˜€
