Outfit of the Day: Semi Formals For Work

Hey Girls,

I am back with another outfit post.  I am enjoying the weather in Bangalore right now, it’s cool and windy and cosy and just perfect. I also started wearing jackets since it’s so windy, but that’s for another post! The week has been wonderful because of this. I also got a new phone!! But as all good things don’t stay, I ended up getting really sick with fever, cold, the works, so now, I am cooling my heels off at home.

A white shirt is a must-have for every kind of wardrobe. It’s simple and the right kind of accessories can transform it in a flash for every kind of occasion, whether it’s work, lunch with friends or a trip to the mall to shop.  This is one of the most comfortable white shirts I own, I love the breast pockets and the ruffles, and it’s perfect for the kind of company I work for. I work for a travel startup where the dress code is very relaxed as is everything else! So, if you work for a less formal company, you could try this look as well.

This was my Monday outfit. I went with a colour scheme for this – monochromes – black and white. I decided to keep it minimalistic, so I paired it with my favorite dark wash jeans, and ballerina flats, along with sharp but simple accessories. This is a necklace made of plastic beads, which I got while shopping in Pondicherry – I love how different and simple it looks with the white shirt.

I felt very professional, at the same time relaxed and comfortable in this outfit, and it certainly made me feel more confident.

Makeup was minimal: I did my usual CTM, used a light stroke of Colorbar blush in 001 Plum Brown (not very visible in the pic as this was towards the end of the day), used Maybelline Colossal Kajal on my waterline and applied one coat of The Body Shop Hi-Shine Lip Treatment (to be reviewed) over Maybelline Color Bloom (not in picture since this is at the end of the day, but can be seen in an earlier outfit here).

Oh and how could I forget 😀 I have a black and white cuff bracelet, and my favorite silver ring. Earrings were simple as well – I wore these silver half-moon earrings that complemented the rest of my look.

Here are the shoes: I am in love with plaid, always have been so anything with a plaid print is automatically awesome for me 😀 I got these shoes about two years ago, they are very comfy.
