Love and hate … and everything in between

Blazers are blazing

I have worked in an office setting for quite some time now. As I have to dress for my job (which is business attire) I do at times find it hard to be myself and dress to who I am, rather than what I do. One piece of clothing which I absolutely love are all my dozen blazers 🙂 I have every length, every style, and (almost) every color.

Working in an office – and being the youngest one at that – doesn’t leave much room to be creative when you are attending meetings and associating with important people. But I do find myself lucky enough to have those around me that really like and appreciate my sense of style at work.

I often pair my blazers with a dark dress pant, a solid color dress shirt and then add all my many blazers. If I am not wearing a blazer then I like to wear a lot of bold colored shirts, with lace, frills, bows – you name it! I do at times think that I can get away with my look because I dress my age – and as the years go by I know I will not be able to pull it off anymore without looking out-of-place in the sea of grey suits and black pencil skirts.

Below are a collection of photos found online that I love and would love to own 🙂 I take no credit for the photos and if they do belong to you please let me know and I will be happy to give you credit. Thanks for stopping by 🙂

 


Backless … of the flirty kind

Short skirts, plunging necklines, bearing midriff – these are things that are seen regularly. But one area which I find to be beautiful and deserves to be displayed is the back! We see it often during award season, long elegant dresses worn beautifully by all the celebrities, and once they turn there is an unexpected reveal – and off go the camera flashes.

Being a regular person, wearing such gowns is not something that I can do often. But who says you need to go fully nude back there 😉 The degree of “skin baring” is completely up to you, and if you are like me, then a cute design is where it’s at! With summer soon coming up (I hope) it allows the creative juices to flow, and awakes the time to experiment in cute and fresh new looks that not only keeps you cool, but shows that inner runway model within to come out and strut the sidewalks in a fresh and flirty style.
