TOPSHOP : 1 Item, 3 Ways - functional workwear

 Had the chance to get some photos taken with the help of my sister and friend David after work last night and I'm loving the one-light photos! I think it's time to do some chiaroscuro portraits soon... 

As much as I'd like to say that I get to design and sit comfortably on my desk the entire day, my job entails so much more than that, which is why I have to actually think about what to wear (ugggghhhhh). My wardrobe has always consisted of too many short skirts and bodycon dresses, and the opposite side of that spectrum is made up of loose tops, running shorts and warmers for climbing/yoga/running. I've realised that I have very few casual pieces decent enough to wear to work or for site visits/sourcing materials, which is why I've been loving cover-ups and outerwear for when I have meetings or super cold offices to be in. This is the last entry for my  1 Item, 3 Ways series and for the nth time I want pockets in everything! Can designers please start incorporating hidden pockets for women's clothes? I need to have my tape measure, phone, compact, keys, a pen and cards/cash on me all the time. Girls like me can definitely up their productivity with urban active wear that's functional and easily dressed up with their choice of shoes & accessories. Or maybe I should just start investing on vests, jackets and.. fanny packs! Fanny packs rule! (And that last statement is why I would never be allowed in the world of fashun). 

Thinking of posting more interior design-related things on here, because I seriously am loving my job! Even if interiors make me miss the outdoors! ;) 

P.S. Please pray for me as I get my eyes laaaazurrred (getting PRK, not LASIK) this Friday... I've had enough of losing contacts, breaking glasses and not being able to see underwater. Hopefully I'm not part of the 20% who experience dry eyes [forever] after the surgery. I'm so excited and nervous at the same time!
