Style Files: Office Casual

Now, that I am finally back from my extended end of the summer holiday (which I will share a few pics soon), I had no time to post my other previous looks, so here's one.

This one was in the mix from my casual office attire. It was a bit of an off day, alongside dealing with an allergy attack, so I put on the eye frames and this comfortable outfit. I've had these trousers for a long time, and I believe they were purchased during a Christmas sale years back, when I was visiting my sister.

This week has been a tad crazy because I had a couple of unexpected meetings—all went well, but I find myself incredibly drained … that or I am still in resort mode.
I wore a navy and cream striped jumper with chocolate brown trousers, because I loved the combination paired with the yellow ribbing at the hemline of the top. The bold red outlined sleeves was the main attraction for me, so this was one of those times that I felt that I really needn't many accessories at all.

The notion of taking this look to a very Parisian theme was too easy, given the red and blue stripes. Instead, I chose to style it in a much less chic, but comfortable way. Although, for a casual day at the office, it seemed entirely appropriate.

How is your week going so far?

    Hi Madison! Thanks for commenting at So What to Twenty! I must say that your top is such a cool spin on the basic striped sweater. Love the colorful detail on the arm. I would imagine that it adds a bit of fun to the everyday work attire.
