Office looks – totally inappropriate looks for the office

October 21, 2013

Fashion and technology are two different fields that have something in common – it’s all very fast paced and changes occur all too quickly. You buy a pair of trendy shoes and next thing you know, they’re sooooo last season. You buy a new mobile phone and the following day, they come up with a newer one with improved features. It’s a losing game trying to keep up but it’s this change that allows for improvement, particularly with technology.

It is fascinating, the amazing things you have available nowadays. Who would say, 10 years ago that we’d be blogging from our mobile phones and that the tiny camera on them would be a lot better than the expensive (and very crappy) digital cameras we had back then? I know I didn’t see this coming when I had my silly little blog over at Livejournal. I am nonetheless extremely happy about this, it makes my life so much easier. I mean, I love my nice (and bulky, ufff) digital camera but it’s good to be able to ditch it every now and then and still know I will have decent photos with enough quality to post on the blog to document my outfits. It’s amazing what you can do with a mobile phone these days and if you look for it, you can find an app for doing most anything you want. Maybe except the dishes or walking the dog.

One of my favourite daily activities is documenting my outfits, mainly because it is very rare that I repeat any combination, and I do it mostly with my phone. I usually have to pester one of my friends at lunch time to take these photos but it’s for a good cause! Here are a few outfits from the last few months that I haven’t had the chance to share before:

Details: Shoes and T-shirt – Forever 21, Skirt – Rodier (it was my mum’s), socks and ring – Primark, Bag – TK Maxx, Headscarf – Zara

Details: Headband and Skirt – H&M, tights – Calzedonia, Boots – Rocket Dog, T-shirt – David and Goliath, (both via TK Maxx), Cardigan – Zara

Details – Tshirt – Band tee from Los Campesinos, Dress – H&M, Headband – Delia’s, Sandals – Irregular Choice, Bag -Target.

Which one is your favourite? I’m sharing this with Patti’s Visible Monday!

    So much colour and style to cheer up those office bods, I bet you’re a joy to work with!
    Blogging from a mobile phone? I have trouble writing text messages. I’m such a Luddite! x

    I like the top outfit best- but the KISS Tee wins every prize.

    Hi Sara!

    I too never repeat the same combination – People at the office say or ask me, how big is your closet, how much clothes do you have? I say a lot and that’s it, nobody’s business –

    Yes technology is so great, i use my iphone often to take pics, i should ask my work colleague to take my pic as well! It’s amazing how the phone cameras got better so quickly –

    I love your second outfit, with the mad dog tee

    You are so adorable Sara!

    Great outfits, Sara, I think the first one is my favourite.
    I am so out of the loop with both technology and fashion! But then I don’t much care about having the latest thing, and being so last season really isn’t a problem for me! xxxx

    GF, get yourself a camera with a self-timer, that way you don’t have to pester anymore (and can take more shots).

    So cute … all of them! Don’t make me choose! You can’t make me!!!
    I so wish our employees would dress so confidently. Takes a pretty stuffy office to regard these as inappropriate.
    Always a pleasure to see you!

    Your outfits have lots of lots of whimsy and color. The one with the red tights is my fave.

    I’m with Vix on the Luddite thing. I only use my phone to make phone calls. My friends say that my lifestyle is practically medieval. And like Curtise, I have no knowledge of current trends or last season’s look since I usually dress like it’s 1973.
