How To Wear Lace At Work

Fashion | May 6, 2015 | By

Happy Wednesday everyone!

Lace is a fabric I seldom wear to the office as I am concerned that it may appear too girly, sweet or even sexy. When I do decide to wear it to work, I usually choose designs that incorporate other fabric as well, apart from the lace itself. The waterfall front cardigan featured today is an example of an outfit I find suitable for the office environment and I paired it with a sheer panel skirt which was also featured here. As I am really obsessed with tassel accessories recently, I couldn’t help matching these Paris purchases with the outfit for a more casual Friday office look.

Chic Office Wear With Statement Pieces — And More Inspirations!

Fashion | May 4, 2015 | By

It’s Monday again! Hope everyone had a great start to the week!

The outfit featured today is what I consider a chic style suitable for the office if you stay in a country with a colder climate. As many of us work at least five days a week, it may get somewhat challenging to find work wear that is not boring yet office-appropriate at the same time. To introduce some creativity to an outfit, what always work for me is to include a couple of statement pieces to the overall aesthetics. This can be in the form of an accessory (e.g. jewelry), an apparel with a unique shape (e.g. asymmetrical skirt) or an outstanding printed pattern, such as the animal print jacket I wore in these pictures taken in Paris.

A Colorblock Pom-Pom Scarf And Leather Jacket At Jardin Des Plantes

Fashion, Travel | May 1, 2015 | By

My husband and I love planning our travels in late Winter or early Spring as we are very keen to catch the first burst of Spring colors from floral blooms in the countries we visit. Needless to say, we always make it a point to visit attractions that are known for their beautiful flowers and greenery. Jardin Des Plantes was an example of such a location that we did not want to miss! As the weather is quite chilly, a cool leather jacket is a great option to wear for a day-trip to this beautiful garden.
