Or what’s left of it, anyway. It’s 10:30 pm at the time of writing and in less than a couple of hours this sliver of freedom will have passed. Which means it’ll be the start of another new week…but instead of hingeing on these Monday blues I’m thinking again about how I’m getting closer to the end of work. Every week is a countdown, but now I can actually count the remaining weeks on my fingers. Progress!
It’s been a while since I’ve done an outfit post thanks to my ailing laptop, but I’ve finally gotten some pictures in. Truthfully though, I had a decent break from coordinating outfits for a while. During the time I didn’t post any I was having a good time being an outfit repeater all week. Back to new coordinates!
This was the outfit I wore to the magic show last week! A simple white logo T-shirt and black skirt with the floatiest, shiniest layer of tulle. It has these flecks of glitter subtly peeking out from the tulle and is the perfect piece for some subtle night glamour (which is pretty uncharacteristic for me but I guess there’s a first time for everything).
(Note: Most of my outfit titles have kind of stopped making sense)
On work days I’m usually kitted out in the same dresses, but this time I tied a yellow cardigan on top and wore short white socks with my black shoes for that extra demure look. It’s a mild and feminine summer lookThe over-shoulder cardigan is one of this season’s accessory trends in Japan, so I wanted to see how I could give my dress some extra character with that. (Ignoring the fact that halfway through the morning I caved and just wore the cardigan like normal because the office air-conditioning was cold)
This one follows my usual pattern of light, barely-there colours on top of black shoes. It’s a full Dip Drops coordinate again! The top is one of my recent favourites—its sheer material makes for an interesting, mature look but the college-style print keeps it fun.
A fruity, summer-ish combination of purple, dark blue and floral printsIt’s the kind of outfit I’d wear at a garden picnic while eating blueberry jam sandwiches or something similarly idealistic and imaginary. Instead I wore it to work on a day I spent holed up at my own desk.
It’s been fun thinking up coordinates for the warm season! Someone please tell me when it’s turning to fall so I can keep up with the rest of the world, thanks~
