So, the holiday month and the year 2021 are over. But not without a look at what I wore to the office in December. This time including new clothing and accessories. Curious? Then read on.
As some of you may know, I have been painting for over a year and a half. Not so much creative painting, but using the paint by number principle. I always order the canvas from AliExpress, the well-known budget webshop.
Although I normally just order only what I need, a few months ago I decided to take a look around. And so I came across the brooches department. I had never seen brooches so beautiful and cheap at the same time. So I ordered some. Let’s see if they are as beautiful as the webshop portrays.
Yes, it turned out to be a success. In the photos above, I am wearing a gold-colored brooch in the shape of a girl with a large stone. What a beauty! And that for €1.41 including shipping costs.
Sweaters are one of the most difficult items of clothing for me. They often look very casual and since I usually opt for smart clothes, it’s not always easy to find one that I like. However, I managed to do it last month. At Costes, I found the black sweater with openwork neck below.
I’ve had this jacket in my closet for years and it is one of my favorite pieces of clothing. Because it looks so chic, it needs little else. A black outfit and a few gold buttons on a blouse are enough to finish it off. Ideal when I’m in a hurry and have no idea what to wear.
In addition to the sweater, I also scored a blouse at Costes. One that matches my hair perfectly. It was love at first sight.
Creative with company clothing
Another recent addition was the blouse below from workwear brand Texstar. A beautiful, striped blouse in the colors black and white. Because the blouse looks basic, I felt the need to make something special out of it. That’s why I paired it with a dotted tie, tie clip, and solid black suspenders. The combination of dots and stripes gives it a slightly different look.
Suspenders over vest
In the October article, I showed how I started experimenting with wearing suspenders over cardigans. I still regularly get comments from people who think it looks crazy, but I like it. So last month I did it again.
Love for waistcoat grows
I have also embraced the waistcoat. Years ago, I gave up on this item of clothing because I didn’t like it. But now that I’ve had a waistcoat made of nice, stretchy fabric, I’ve embraced it again. Because secretly I think it’s a pretty marvelous piece of clothing.
What do you think is the best month of December outfit?
