OUTFiT | Midweek Dress-down

I am quite lucky to be working in an industry where dress down is allowed on certain days. As a Talent Acquisition Supervisor, there's an unwritten rule that I must be "presentable" at all times, meaning, corporate or smart casual clothing is required. I don't complain, for dressing appropriately is a way of expressing respect to people or the given situation. But having worn high heels, blazers and pearls almost the entirety of my career, it's an amazing feeling to put my sneakers on at work on a weekday. 

Me: Is it right over left? Or left over right? (Tryna sit like a lady)

I noticed that yellow is always present in my wardrobe lately, which is totally unplanned, btw. LOL. I am also a bit baffled as to why this shade is included in my outfits. Guess I am trying to let the sunshine in my everyday-s! 

Shirt, knitted skirt and sneakers today! I grabbed a sequinned-bowed handbag to complete the look with a bit of statement. Don't usually wear my glasses, because the thick lenses confirm the nerd that I am. But my contacts are making my eyes dry so, hiatus is necessary. This is my kind of look for a weekend with my bestfriends, only, it's work week. 

I still squint even with my glasses on. Sheessh...
Monalisa smile*wink*
Sneakers! A must have!
What this shirt says isn't helping, at all!!! LOL.
I would caption this "The creepy hallway", but "Captured like this --- ALWAYS" is more fitting.

Penshoppe, btw, is a local retail store. It's my first to shop there and I fell inlove with the brand. It is "known for its fresh take on casual wear. It delivers apparel that’s stylish yet affordable." I am glad I entered one of their shops! I finally found a local store that is at par with my simple fashion sense.
