“Which is odd because you’d think as a fashion blogger, I can dress for whatever occasion.And I can, except when the occasion presented is dressing for the office. “
Good morning from a rather cold Nairobi. How are you guys?
I don’t know how to dress formally. My ideal office is one where the dress code is “whatever the hell you want”. Which is odd because you’d think as a fashion blogger, I can dress for whatever occasion.And I can, except when the occasion presented is dressing for the office. After working in an office and receiving looks and remarks that implied I wasn’t appropriately dressed, I came to the only logical conclusion: my idea of formal wear is a bit skewed, and I’ve also watched too many movies.
But this suit is formal, no? Apart from the fact that it’s fuchsia of course. And I could have worn it with a cute blouse but instead I wore it with a t-shirt, twice. The second time was with a white t-shirt and I wore it to the Queen’s birthday party at the Kenyan High Commissioner’s residence. The dress code was business or national attire. The rest of the time, I usually just wear the pieces separately, see here. The jacket is already showing signs of over-wearing.
