Yesterday, I decided to look as preppy as possible. I have been feeling like wearing my high school uniform for soo long (even if the last time I wore one was almost 10 years ago), I have just been into the preppy mode of late. So I had to come up with a creative idea to make it work. As you all know, I work in an investment bank which has very strict dress code. So how do you make preppy professionally accepted, I decided I had to forgo the socks and the headband (that would be too Blair Waldorf) but I still went with the skater skirt and stripes and this was my result.

 Not too shabby and not too teenage like but still maintained the preppy feel of the entire outfit, which was what I was going for.

 I also tried to be as playful as possible in the snapshots and I tried to wrap my braids too

 Maybe next time I would incorporate a tie and see the resultant effect but till then I just used a necklace as a substitute. And the beauty of the skirt is in the flare, at least I think so.

What do you think? I believe I rocked a preppy but corporate wear (my opinion by the way, what's your?).


  1. You are so cute! Outfit permeates 3 types of blue! Your strict shirt is very suitable for any kind of dress code!
    Kisses, Sily

My first attempt at incorporating a turban without wearing a trad went amazing well. I have been tying turbans and scarves a lot lately (and no it isn't religious more like my culture) but never tried it with a top and pants. So today, I decided to break that norm and use a turban with whatever I choose to wear. Hence, this outfit. What are your thoughts?.

My Favorite Links Of The Week

Today I would be highlighting my best links of the week and why. First of, none of the articles were written by me or anyone I know but they have greatly impacted my life. I love to read (it is actually a hobby, dorky I know) and enlighten my perspective on life in generally and this has really contributed to building of my character and probably personality. I will run through the links paragraph by paragraph and hopefully won't bore you.

I stumbled upon this advice "4 Ways to Increase Job Search Confidence" and I was immediately taken because the writer was speaking to me. Generally I tend to shy away from things I know I may not be qualified to do even though I may be wickedly good at it. I kind of keep my talent on the down low for fear of either seeming like a know it all or coming off wrong. I am not a perfectionist by any means but I am one of those people who believe that all arguments or opinions should be factually verifiable (I know it is bad and I am working o…
