First Day In The Office



Cardigan - Mariposa
Razor Back Tank - Forever 21
Trousers & Belt - H&M
Crossbody Bubble Bag - Chloe
Sunglasses & Flower Bangle - Forever 21


It was my first day volunteering yesterday and this was the outfit I came up with. Even though it's only a volunteer position, our clothing conduct is still regulated to office wear. After going through the orientation power point slides I realized I wasn't allowed to wear leggings, denim, shorts or sandals....and I just happened to wear my Zara sandals lol...oops. Now I'm having a hard time trying to figure out what I should wear to work....I ALWAYS wear leggings lol. If I don't wear leggings I'm in jeans. I mean, I understand jeans, shorts and sandals...but leggings too?? Really?! :( ....ugh, what am I going to do?! >_<" These are my only pair of trousers by the way lol.... -_-'

Anyways, my first day went by alright. There really isn't much exciting to data entry (not that I was expecting a whole lot but still)...within less than 2.5 hrs I finished 100 entries. Hopefully things will get better because I was the only volunteer in the afternoon shift and I was pretty bored being in this large cubicle all by myself....sigh~

  4. Love your office attire! Super chic and laid-back! I would be in a real jam if I couldn't wear leggings or jeans either!! Maybe you can have a season of pretty pleated maxi skirts! =)

  7. No leggings?? I always find that leggings are sometimes a great way to look formal with the right shoes.

    But I do love the neutral white look! Really chic but office appropriate at the same time. =D

    1. Same here! No idea why they wouldn't allow it...I guess someone might've worn it the wrong/inappropriate way in the office. I dunno.

      And thanks! :)
