Leopard stripes

Ok.
So, we are still blogging on-the-go.
We are still gonna go light on the blah & heavy on the snaps.
We are still going to share pictures dragged out of archives.
We are still so shutting up NOW!



Just another day at office..........just another "smart casual" workplace outfit (though you can't really qualify this as work-wear, which is supposed to be formal in most cases) with a knot & a twist! ;)


I love wearing flats with cropped trousers..........sort of a practical, yet chic feel about the whole thing, no?


I generally don't wear my shirts tucked-in. Mainly because I haven't got washboard abs to boast of!
But that day I felt like the waistline of the pants & the fit of the shirt was just about right for me to give the tucked-in look a try!! I didn't really do wrong.....did I???




I wanted to wear a thin belt to perfect that tucked-in look.........but didn't find any that went well with the whole outfit. I was almost giving up, when my eyes fell on my favorite leopard print scarf! And voila! My problem was solved!! :)

 



My heart ring is becoming a regular feature on this blog nowadays.........hope you guys haven't tired of it yet......coz I sure haven't!!! Also, I'm loving these leather camel flats that a dear colleague-cum-friend has passed on to me recently (she's not even worn these once, as, soon after buying these, she realised that they are a tad too tight for her feet!).......thanks a bunch M!!!

Striped cotton shirt: Hand-me-down from friend (Thanks again, M!)
Corduroy cropped pants: Wills Lifestyle, Kolkata
Leopard print scarf: Thrifted, most probably!
Heart ring: Accessorize, Kolkata
Watch: Fastrack, gifted by friend
Camel flats: Hand-me-down from friend

This outfit was a subtle effort at print-mixing - didn't know stripes & leopard print look so swell together! :)

Also, this is a monotone outfit with neutral-ish colors (except for the pop of yellow on the ring)..........which may be a breather after last post's color outburst!

Hope you all had a rocking weekend!! \m/

Here's to getting ready for another long week ahead.........see you soon fellas! :))

Love love,
Polka Princess

  4. you look good , definitely a casual look , corduroy pants are considered more casual than jeans, so a big no at work places.If your work place allows casual wear then ,u rock girl !!

  13. I love tucking in my blouses, I feel like it pulls together any look- it definitely worked well here! And you can never go wrong with cropped pants and flats, it's such a very Audrey Hepburn style :)
