No rescuin’, she’s fine out there

blazer, leggings, and a striped shirt plus Berca boots and an EGG bag

When getting dressed, we have to only consider not just our personal style, but also our activities for the day, as well as the weather.

Today,  I had to wear something for my appointment in a casual place,  and it had to feel cool for me to survive the humid weather,  but it also had to be ready for a rainy afternoon, as most afternoons have been recently. Sounds easy enough,  except it also had to be appropriate for the meeting I suddenly had with my former office,  which had a corporate dress code. Oh, and it had to survive a 1.5-hour commute without getting wrinkled.

So, in short, I needed an outfit that was cool, rain-ready, wrinkle-free, casual-but-a-little-corporate. Here’s what I came up with.

  • My trusty neutral striped shirt from the the Market! Market! tiangge. Wrinkle-free and works for almost anything.
  • Combat boots from Berca Shoe Store, which I’ve just made rain-ready with Rain & Stain Guard spray the other day.
  • Leggings from Una Rosa, because jeans with boots would be hell in the morning.
  • The black blazer that was our office uniform ages ago. Instant corporate attire!
  • Brown and blue handbag from EGG to match my boots.
  • Brown and blue accessories to match my bag.
  • A tube working as a sort extender, because the outfit looks nicer with it.

What do you guys think?
