When I started this blog, I did not think I would ever make a Style post, let alone dedicate a whole category to Style. But I have been surprised by the interest in my work outfits, which I occasionally post in Instagram stories.
I have no authority on style; far from having a fashion degree, I do not even subscribe to fashion magazines or follow anything going on in the fashion world.
That said, I do love styling for work because when I look good, I feel significantly more confident and empowered – and that is critical when you work in an industry dominated by men in suits.
So, thanks to everyone’s messages about making Style part of my blog and Instagram, I will be sharing at least one Style post a month (more if there is interest). 🙂
Without further ado, let me show you my outfit of the day.
Fall officially started last weekend, however, trees in Amsterdam are yet to turn an exquisite burnt orange. Today, it is 20 degrees and sunny – perfect for pulling out my new grey pleated skirt. I have paired it with a plain white top, which is a thick knit and a pair of black edgy slingback heels. I completed the outfit with a deep berry & black coat. My bag is a muted grey and I use it pretty much on a daily basis for work.
Well, that is about it for today’s outfit. I hope you liked the pairings I have made for my Monday outfit! Please do share your feedback in terms of what you would like to see. Would a post about my key fall pieces be of interest? Let me know!
And lastly, a h u g e shout out to my husband for photographing the outfit and bearing with my lack of modelling skills. Nonetheless, I think he brought out the best in me, like always. 🙂
Here is a selfie at the end of what we thought was a pretty good first shoot!
