Decoding – WorkWear – What’s your Go To Quirk?

Haven’t we all had weeks where its just Wednesday and we be like “What? Shouldn’t it have been Friday already?” You say every week of yours is like that? Hehe shhh! 🙊But when we have such slow weeks what do we do? How do we survive through the rest of the week? While I don’t know about guys, girls I do know have a go-to style of dressing to help them get over the week. This week’s post is all about this Go-To Quirk which we all have and so many pretty friends of mine willingly agreed to share their Quirk for the Tough Week.

Quirk One : Preeti makes pretty statements

image

I for one know for a fact that when Preeti my friend and colleague brings out her amazing range of statement necklaces it means she’s heating her week up because not much has been happening. It’s true isn’t it?

Inference : Amp up your simple boring dress! Accessorize like there is no tomorrow!

Quirk 2 : Ranjini Does Layers

image

When I asked Ranjini what her go to quirk was she readily shared this picture of her in several layers. While this was in a colder country, I’m guessing her quirk (like one of my many quirks) is layering, either in thermals like the pic above or in cool cottons when she heads back to the ever tropical ever hot Chennai 🙂 thank you Ranjini 😘 try as I might, I just wasn’t able to crop out the stray napkin sorry. Hahaha

Inference : Love your layers. Always remember, two’s better than one!

Quirk 3 : Pastel style by Srishty

image

I must confess, when Srishty of Life Of srish shared this picture of her in pastel formals she might not have been aware that I’ll use it for this particular post. Thank you so much Srishty and I can confidently say Going Pastel is her quirk because we had a discussion a few posts ago about how no one embraces their pastels and srishty quite strongly agreed and openly declared her love for pastels too!

Inference : Pastels may not add much color but they add so much confidence and focus. Embrace them pastels because work wear is incomplete without them!

Quirk 4 : Shilpa does eye blinding color

image

While I plan on doing a detailed post about Pakistani Cut Kurtis like the one I’m wearing above, this picture is only proof that my dull days get literally brightened up with eye popping, gaze blinding colors.

Inference : Quite a contrast and a contradiction to the previous Quirk but my quirk is to add lot of color to my outfit to bring back interest and add some life into my outfit!

That brings me to the end of this post. Thank you so much all you lovely girls who so readily contributed for my post! I owe you guys one. 😘

Thank you all for reading these posts patiently but right now close this work wear post because its weekend and honestly who cares about what you wear – work or otherwise? Go out and have some fun 💝

Colorb(older)locking!

I color blocked once again and this time a little bolder. 😍 See? I told you guys I could do it!!
I must warn you, I had no one to click pictures so the pictures are all selfies.!

image

So this was the basic combination. Green shorts, red tank top inside and a yellow blouse over it. Is that wild or what? 😎

image

This yellow top I got from my aunt who was probably bored of wearing it. 😝 (not complaining!) It has been bought at CottonWorld! And I love it because its beautifully light cotton with a lot of embroidery and cut-work.

image

These GreenShorts are from VeroModa. When I bought it more than a year ago, the only consideration was that I wanted shorts which didn’t make my thunder thighs look more thunderous. 😂 And when I saw this one I grabbed without second thought. It was only later that I realized it was such a good buy because green pairs with the most unusual colors and I love deciding what to wear with it. 😍

image

Lastly, I wore red cubed earrings and a red watch (talk about wild😂) and golden ballerinas to tie up the whole look. LOL!

image

So what do you think about my bolder color blocking?? Did I live up to the challenge? 😆;) Have a super week folks. Stay happy and stay safe.

P.S. I am adding this Postscript because I wanted to show you guys my inspiration behind color blocking.
image
This is my cousin and she designed this dress herself. Can you believe it.?! Its so perfectly and beautifully color blocked and I understood the idea of mixing three colors of pretty non-related color families from this outfit. Who would have thought peach purple and green would go together so wonderfully well right? 🙂

I got my Neon This One!

Hahaha don’t my punny titles crack you up? Please say it did! 😂 So! Say hey to my next four part segment – “Neon-daze” (Remember my Orange is the new black Parts 1, 2, 3 and 4? No? Oh very well!😝)

These segments are here to show my neon obsession in life! Right from a little before it came into being trendy and well after the trend has died a peaceful death I continue to be the moth attracted to the bright neon haze and be dazed in it (am I killing these rhyming words or what! 👐😂)
Well when it does come back in vogue, I can at least say “Duh! Been there done, doing, will continue to do that!” Can you?!? Tell?

Moving on! I present to you the first neon in my wardrobe! A shocking pink and white blouse. Lately I’ve been obsessed with wearing shirts and blouses over t-shirts, so that’s what I did here too..! Ba-dum-tsss cover your eyes and take a peak at this neon-over-neon-overdose!

This neon pink and white shirt I bought at a cute thrift store in Malaysia and paired it with this butterfly T-shirt a friend who visited France bought back for me.
It was such a clash of brash colors but I had a lot of FUN wearing them.
To give some respite to sore eyes I paired this look with plain black jeans.
Psst… my earrings were neon too! Muhahaha!

image

Hope you have an amazing weekend. My weekend is going to be super fun. I can just feel it already! 😍 Stay happy and safe.!

Colorblocking and Subtlety!

As much as I like to go really bold with color blocking I’m still learning and taking only my baby steps

I went to work last Friday wearing a subtly colorblocked outfit which ended up with people telling me the color combination looked pretty good. So I’m happy! 😜

image

I have worn this denim shirt one before here!
For this look I paired it with a plain peach T-shirt and black jeans.
From a single staple black T-shirt I’ve gone onto owning a pink, a peach and a white plain T-shirt. I love the fact that they can be so effortlessly paired and lend themselves so well to be layered or when we want some other piece to be the hero of the look!

image

While for the photoshoot I tied up the bottom of my denim shirt-turned-jacket, I had it fully open during the rest of my day. 😆

A bit too casual for office ya think? I thought so too. LOL! 😂 Oh well! What has been done has been done. So long folks 😘😜 Have an amazing week y’all!
