Every blogger struggles to find that perfect mix between classy and total fashionista when styling work appropriate clothing. You want it to be youthful and young but also want to be suitable to be treated with respect in the working place. Even though I don't necessarily work, I do go to meet ups with fellow bloggers where we discuss work related issues and that sometimes means dressing up more sophisticated. This is also quite a affordable outfit and definitely won't cost you a fortune to recreate. Here is the look I put together for you guys.
The jeans of this outfit have been DIYed by me. I took pieces of jean fabric and simply sewed it over the already made holes in the jeans. I found the jeans really pulled the outfit together as if we would of paired the outfit with a skirt, it would be too sophisticated. By adding the jeans we made it more casual. The bag was from a Thai market in Bangkok but you can easily find one just like it in a different colour if you prefer. The bag added a pop of colour to the outfit whereas without it the whole outfit would basically be monochrome. We want to add colour to our outfits especially in New Zealand as summer is here. We all love monochrome colours but by adding a pop of colour the outfit will look more 'planned' or thought about. A pop of colour will often make you look more awake and fresher and we definitely want that!
