Sooo, I don't have a normal 9-5 job, but this outfit feels more professional to me. For instance, I feel as though I can picture a paralegal wearing this outfit in a law office....on a tv show. Not sure how it would translate to real life, though, because I tend to envision and live my life as though it were a television series. A sitcom to be exact, lol. I'm actually kinda serious. Don't judge me.
I've actually never worn this top tucked in before, but I tried it out, and I liked that it brought more focus to its detailing. I purchased this top a couple years ago from Urban Outfitters, and have paired it with both daytime and evening looks. I like that it translates so well into any number of occasions.
I'm also wearing a skirt again. This is strange for me because I'm not generally a skirt person - I feel like they tend to hinder my mobility and sitting options (tomboy at heart, remember?). However, when I came across this skirt during my most recent Forever 21 excursion, I felt that it would be a useful addition to my wardrobe. The faux leather material is soft and comfortable, and I like that I can wear it simply as is or layer it during the winter season with chunky sweaters and tights, etc.
These shoes were a find I made when I lived in London four years ago. There was a little boutique near Bloomsbury, where I lived, and all their shoes were around twenty quid (bucks). I love London, but it's no secret that it is an expensive city to live in, so when you find a deal there, you bloody take it! ;)
