Its midweek and tomorrow is Thanksgiving. The sales are all raging mad everywhere and I am sure you are sick of all the gift guides in the world that you have seen, so here is a little change for you. Coffee up and get reading.
Starting off today will be what I will call the “Working Girls Guide”. In this series I intend to share my closet essentials that keep me sane through out the year. Working in a conservative office requires substantially different wardrobe than those in casual or creative offices. Conservative work wear does not essentially have to be black slacks with white button downs and a black blazer. That is so yesterday. It also does not have to be khaki slacks with a sweater. Show them dresses and skirts some love, whether it is summer, winter or spring.
If you have been following this blog for a while, you would know I am a lover of all things colorful and encompass it in my outfits at all times. Over the years I have experimented more with colors. So this winter series today is dedicated to colors. Many women I have met are shy to try out shades of red, teal, yellow for fear of standing out. Well I am here to tell you, you should stand out, but in a good coordinated way. What is the point of being one among them all?

I believe in actions over words. I myself have many a times created curated list of items I would want and wish for, but the reality is there is no indefinite budget in my hand. So I rely on sales like the ones going on this week and for the next month or so.
One of my most read and clicked posts is the one, where I showcased wearing a dress 4 ways and to this day, I do that with many of my outfits. I only endorse products I own or will do when on sale. Who pays full price anyways? I reworked my maternity dress from ASOS below to incorporate a non-pregnant belly. Fortunately this bodycon dress does not have too much slack and worked well when paired with a turtle neck, to combat the cold.
Dress :: ASOS ( Similar options here ,here(on 60% off sale) and here); Top :: COMMANDO( Up to 25% off with code GOBIG15); Shoes :: POUR LA VICTOIRE ( In red) ( Similar mint pumps here and here)
