I don't work a 9 to 5 in a traditional office setting. As a sales engineer, I service industrial plants in the power generation industry. Service = manual labor with tools and other dirty stuff - literally guys, some stuff is DIRTY!!!

It is only on my office days that I get to wear whatever I want. Today is not an office day. Thus, I will probably only wear this outfit for this 10 minute photo shoot. Following the shoot, I quickly change into khakis, a polo and steel-toe boots for my day job. There's no way to make khakis, a polo and steel toe boots stylish, whenever I've tried I look silly. Not to mention the guys at the plant would think I was a jokester. Just thought I'd let you know so you see why my styling is all over the place. However, if I did work a 9 to 5 in a traditional office, I would totally wear this.


  1. LOVE those pants! i'm such a fan of pants that tie and look slouchy. i love this whole look - especially with the blazer and long necklace!

  2. Ok... I know this has nothing to do w/ your post and is kind of random, but I love your hair texture! It reminds me of my younger cousins hair; her twists can last for 2 to 3 weeks. I already have a looser curl pattern and add on to that heat-damage which makes the whole front of my hair wavy and my twists last a maximum of 4 days. I'm kind of jealous ( don't get me wrong I love my hair but I can't do as much with it as you probably could). Anyway, love your blog! :-)

  3. @ Gaelle - Thanks! It's rare that I hear comments like that!!! Glad yo stopped by!
