I love a statement necklace, and often plan an entire outfit around it…
I’ve worn this blue and green necklace quite often recently, and I’m trying to come up with new outfits to wear it with.
Most of the time, I’m quite happy wearing basics: trousers and a t-shirt are the easy option for a long day, and you can get dressed fast. Somehow I always seem to be in a hurry leaving for work, and must get dressed in 5 minutes… even on days when I only work in the afternoons!
I know, should get started earlier… I spend about half an hour doing my make up (= a little bit of powder, blush and lots of lipstick) and my hair. OK, lets’s revise that: 5 minutes for make-up and the rest of the time is for blowdrying my hair into submission… So, given all that time and effort, why is it that I always have the same messy ‘do’ in all the pictures? You should see my hair when I wake up… Let’s just say that having curly hair is a curse…
This silk coat is one of my late summer / early autumn work wear favourites: lightweight, dressy, eye-catching and fun… I bought it in San Francisco 3 years ago, in a shop called Asian Trends in Chinatown. I usually avoid tourist traps and souvenir shops, but this little shop had the most amazing silk clothing and accessories. And it looks so great with the necklace, don’t you think?
Do you have work wear favourites?
