Dressing them up…or down!

Remember the pistachio green pants from ZARA? The ones ideally tailored both for the office as well as for the weekend? Naturally, as I told you, I bought them in beige as well. I know, shocker! The other day, the opportunity presented itself, and I wore them both at the office and for a relaxing afternoon with D.

The versatility of these pants is incredible! Since I actually had some work that day at the office, I decided to pair them with my Fifi nude pumps from Christian Louboutin, because hey, a nude pair of pumps always does the trick, and a blouse from (drumroll!) ZARA. Since taking long walks in Bucharest in Loubs is a profanity (for the integrity of the shoes) I also left home with a pair of Converse sneaks and a t-shirt, thinking that I’ll finish all my stuff in time to change before D arrives to save me from work. Of course time decided to fly past me that day and I did’t get a chance to actually change before our casual afternoon so I decided to snap a few pics of my office attire and then, like a 12 yo I changed in D‘s car (luckily all the windows are tinted).

The bag I wore at work is from Moschino and it’s a go-to bag as it’s neutral both colour-wise as well as shape-wise and works well both for the office and for a semi-casual dinner with friends. I wore the exact same jewellery for both outfits from Swarovski.

Moving along to the casual outfit. I kept the pants, put on my neon velcro Converse that I got from the kids section (I always wanted a pair of velcro sneaks), changed the top and the bag. The t-shirt is from H&M and I bought it three years ago from their Conscious Collection. As it turns out, I have a lot of stuff from their Conscious Collections that I bought throughout the years. I like it a lot as it can easily pass as a blouse if I put a blazer over it and I think that’s thanks to the embroidered hem. The bag I received as a present from close friends and it’s made by Beaucoupzero. This guy is a digital artist that expanded his horizons and now has quite a few items in his collection featuring his art (bags,laptop cases, toys, etc). Most of the wall art in our house is done by him so you can also get his designs on canvas.

I did change my sunglasses for the second outfit, as I always have a pair of spare sunglasses in D‘s car. For work I wore my Gucci shades and in the afternoon I changed them with my WoodWorks pair I got from Innsbruck last year. Overall it took me about two minutes to go from a polished look to a more casual look appropriate for a lazy afternoon.

We stumbled upon a sushi place at some point and we decided to have lunch…late lunch actually and since it was late we only ate a cheese-plate (guess I was in charge of the menu). The place is called AI and it’s very chill and the cheese plate was great.

That kind of afternoon is actually like a unicorn for us as we rarely ever get an afternoon-off. We usually either work or run errands, but I am so glad we managed to squeeze a few relaxing hours into our schedule and that the weather was lovely. We had a great time as usual.

P.S.: Since most of the stuff I’m wearing is older than a season and I couldn’t find the pieces online, I linked some similar stuff.
