Winter Bloom (workwear)

Is is possible to rock printed leggings to work?  Definitely.  The key is picking a pair with a darker base color, a) it'll help hide unattractive VPLs/bunchy wrinkles and b) the darker the legging, the more they look like pants which is a good thing unless you happen to be going for the throwback aerobics wear look.  I actually eyed up these gorgeous Glassons leggings when they first came out in March before I left and when I saw them at the winter clearance for only $12 (cheap in NZ) I had to buy them!  As a general rule for work, if I wear a bold printed item I balance it out with a good dose of neutrals, white and black, so I played it safe with my trusty black blazer that pretty much fits any look, yet another white blouse (the godsend of work wardrobes), a fairly sensible clutch and classic cut-out heels.  The white blouse is part of a brand-new haul that I got off taobao and I love how the beaded epaulettes on the shoulders give it little something extra.  Just a quick mention that this is the first time I have actually accessorized with the gorgeous collar necklace I got from the giveaway and just because it matched so perfectly, I had to throw on my chunky pyramid ring that is actually the exact same shade.

To save my feet from dying (a lesson I've learnt since hitting college where I actually walk everywhere), I always bring a pair of monochrome flats with me. My last tweed pair were getting a bit ratty so I picked up a brand new pointed pair from the same Glassons winter sale. Loving how the shape and metallic cap give anything they're paired with a touch of elegance.

  7. This outfit is great! Those printed leggings are so bold and eye-catching. Good call on wearing mainly neutrals for the rest of the outfit, otherwise there'd just be too much going on. :P
    And ahh, there are so many cute things on Taobao! Though I don't really know how to use it, since I doubt they ship to US. Ah well~ ^^
