The Unconventional Pant Suit Outfit

Outfit: Isabel Marant biker jacket (similar here and here), Uniqlo silk shirt (similar here), Zara pants (similar here or here), Hermes Cape Cod watch, Hermes Collier de Chien and New Balance 420 sneakers

After spending most of my working life in a pant suit, I thought I'd revive my favorite uniform but with a few changes for an edgier look. These days, working from home means I no longer adhere to a strict corporate dress code. It's just *ahem* *shamefaced*  strictly sweat pants or pajamas (major fail as a fashion blogger). Thankfully here,  nobody will bat an eyelid if I pair my slightly unconventional pant suit with red New Balance sneakers. My friends have mentioned that my brightly colored sneakers worked like a beacon especially at night when they can't find me. PfffffttttHonesty is overrated.

My gut hangs a little more these days and the pants are tighter at the mo, thanks to my winter diet (eat more, move less. Like this dude) so the half tucked look work to my advantage. Oh well. You know that adage "Eat to live or live to eat"? Obviously, I belong to the second camp, evidenced by the numerous food pics on my Instagram account.

  6. This is just so you - proportions are perfect and the trainers give it a cool edgy look. You are seriously getting younger looking. Not just saying and it's not just photos as I saw it for myself yesterday!
