Is anyone else getting "office vibes" from this outfit, or is it just me?

      I didn't even notice it while wearing the outfit but realised it much later during editing these photos. I don't mean "office vibes" in a negative way though, not at all; if I had a creative job in an office — like in a relatively formal/more serious office and not the fun Google-with-slides-jeans-are-fine kind — this is exactly one of the outfits that I'd be wearing and would even try to recreate using different pieces every now and then.

      Most of the things I wear in this outfit are old yet they feel "fresh" to me as I styled them differently (see this striped off-the-shoulder button-up shirt layered on top of a white shirt & the red mules with loop hoop earrings). Aside from making more conscious shopping decisions, I'm also trying to practise another one of those how-to-be-a-more-responsible-shopper tricks: shopping from my OWN wardrobe.

        The only never-seen-before piece: the statement, dark navy detailed fuzzy culottes which were a steal during last year's December sale, bought a size up than my usual for the extra length. It's one of the "fancier" pants in my closet so it's worth saving for a day when I ended up going out for a super fancy dinner with mon mec (that's "my man" in French, just feeling a lil fancy at the mo), as opposed to my usual ratty (but oh so comfy) jeans + sneakers outfit..

        PS: My first time at Nobu KL, SO GOOD.

        I'm looking forward to toning down these fancy schmancy pants with maybe a tee and denim jacket the next time I wear them, what do you think? Any other suggestions on how to dress down the pants?
