So I have a couple of location based challenges participating in The Fashionista Next Door’s Style Me Friday Challenge. The first is timezone – for me, it’s actually Style Me Saturday. The second? The weather.
So things are heating up in the States, thus inspiring a Shorts-in-the-Office theme this week. Down under… There’s a definite chill in the air, and winter is well and truly on its way! But, I do love a challenge, so for me, not only am I trying to pull together an outfit appropriate for my rather conservative office, but I also need something semi-practical so I don’t freeze to death (yes, I realize I’m being melodramatic since its about 20•c (68•F) at the moment… But I love my Aussie sunshine).
My inspiration pic this week is the ultimate in summery chic. I love the little pop of color amongst the monochrome, and I think it would be a great look for summer… It’s going to take some adaption to make this look work in winter… So here is where I landed…
I bought this jacket second hand off eBay, I love the elbow patches! It’s originally from City Chic (as are the shorts!). The booties are from Autograph Fashions. The earrings are from eQuip and the tights from Target. Since my office is rather conservative, I have decided to have a bit of fun with this outfit today and I added my New Look mesh bodysuit for a bit of funk!
