I am lucky enough to be able to work at home most of the time now. But I do miss the social part of 9-5 office life; you can socialize and talk to your co-workers during the working hours, and sometimes, you can go out eat and drink with them after work. When karaoke was still popular in China, a couple of us girls in the office would grab some quick dinner after work and head to club or karaoke for fun — and, oh, not only girls, sometimes boys joined us too! Those were fun times to relieve some some hard and stressful office working moments。
Many people still ask me to give some ideas about office work wear. There are couple brands that offer good designs and good prices in office or work wear. EXPRESS is one of them. Especially for petite girls, if you want to want some tailor-free suit, try to look for the EXPRESS Petite section. I’m sure you’ll find some things just right for you!
Today I am wearing a blazer + skirt set from their Petite section. It’s a nice cut for office wear, and I also like that it is stylish enough to wear on a night out, too. Keep reading and I will show you how I styled this set from daytime work wear to a nighttime fun wear.
In Chinese: 现在的我还算幸运，可以在家工作。但其实我还蛮怀念以前上班时光的，上班时没事就和几个同事闲聊，下了班，约起去吃火锅喝汤。那个时候卡拉OK还很流行，大家下班了就快快的吃个快餐，约了去K歌。对了，不光止有女生啊，男生有时候也加入的呀。上班的时候当然也有压力有累的时候，但每每想起这种时光总是会有怀念。
What I Wore
For office wear, you simply need to keep your hair back. If you think that all black look is too boring or severe for the office, just add come peachy color on your lips, and pearl earrings for some feminine soft touch. If your work requires you to stand and move around a lot, try pairing the look with loafers like I did today, and you accomplish a classic and sophisticated work wear look.
But it’s hair down after dark! It always helps to relax your look, and brings some glamour to your nighttime look. Show some skin if you are comfortable with it! I’m wearing the same suit with a velvet lace bodysuit and a pair of polka-dot slingbacks. I really like the velvet lace details of the bodysuit — very feminine, and feeling so soft and luxe. Oh, and don’t forget to put on your favorite perfume when you go out at night!
