WORLD PREMIERE: That Pinstriped Blazer / Trend of The Month Challenge: Colorful Blazer

I've been imagining how I'd look like in custard green or neon pink blazer with a low-cut tank top and silver shorts for months now.  This obsession with colorful blazers was temporarily appeased during my recent ukay ukay shopping. Upon unearthing this pinstriped blazer, I vowed to scour for the perfect pair of shorts next. However, this trend-of-the-month challenge's deadline made me rummage my apartment closet for something else. Fast! With the typically toxic workload during quarter-ends and my ongoing attempts to practice work-life balance, I can only afford to do the pictorial during office hours. And there's no way our security will allow me to enter the premises donning short shorts. Sighs. Ladies and gents, meet my bandage skirt again (you've seen it here, there and everywhere!).

Anyway, I like how this blazer's stripes serve as clue for which pair of shoes to wear for the day. I was initially attracted to bring out my t-strapped teal flats but changed my mind. In spite of the rain that greeted me this morning, I opted for the mint moccasin flats (world premiered here) for some instant sunshine this manic Monday.




 


 Colorful chick against the models in monochrome. Ha!
 Closer look of the stripes I've earned

Stripes + mint flats = fabness!

Do NOT try this...in the office! Haha!

If you just tuned in, let me inform you that I rarely go for the corporate attire. Collars and long sleeves lead to discomfort, I'm not fond of slacks and I'm far from being prim and proper. Haha! Anyway, this is one deviation that will absolutely have a repeat until I finally score my desired neon pink and/or custard green blazer and silver shorts. And THAT world premiere will definitely take place anywhere but in the workplace. Can't wait!

    1. Haha! I'm actually friends with the guy in black attire. Underneath that coat and tie lies elaborate, permanent art. So I'm actually the boring one compared to him haha.

      I soooo love your blazer, too. Thanks for the visit. :)

  5. I like the silhouette. I prefer 'noise' on top coz I have a heavy bottom. This one's a good look.

    1. Hala, I'm top heavy. So I should go for printed bottoms instead of printed tops? Actually, I love printed bottoms, especially tie-dyes and pinstriped ones.

      Thanks for the visit! :)

  9. Hindi sya mukhang ukayukay Lorns, great tailored-fit and looks really good on you. Love the playfulness of the pattern too matching the cute mint flats.

    I'm a fan of blazer, sometimes it feels like the new raincoat these days. :)
