Office chic in black and neon
So I think this is about as minimalist as I get. This two-tone top was a recent impulse purchase from Next, and in real life it's almost neon yellow, maybe a little lime green. I just love it, not least because of the colours but because it looks like one top over another. And I know that teamed with loose fit trousers you end up with, well, a straight-up-and-down silhouette, but sometimes it's nice to feel a little less restricted (especially sitting behind a desk all day). As Keiko Lynn said in a post a little while ago, if I want to wear something I love even if it's shapeless and doesn't really show off my figure then why shouldn't I...?!
So I went the whole hog and added masculine patent flats. Another pair from my mini brogues collection I've got going on ;)
Are you all looking forward to the weekend? I know I am... My parents return from a long holiday overseas tomorrow so I can't wait to see them as I haven't seen them since New Year.
Happy Thursday everyone!
