Style Saturday with Ayeen : Work Outfits

Hey girlies! So I decided to start this series where I'll write about fashion every Saturday. In this first one, let's talk about formal wear for work, since I've started working in the corporate world, why not?

To be honest, I have two moods when I wake up in the morning for work. Either I go all out, going super fancy or I just pick up whatever that is in my wardrobe that doesn't need to be ironed. When I want to dress up, believe me, I will spend like an hour just to choose the perfect outfit in the morning and that ladies & gentlemen, is usually the reason why I'm late to work. 

But there are moments (more like most of the time) where I feel like.....

Literally me, most of the time, guys. Seriously. 

I used to be a morning person, I love mornings, I love waking up early. But when you live like an hour away (without traffic. With traffic, it's more like a week away..) from your office and need to wake up at 4.30am every morning to go to work...  well, you just feel like that extra hour you spend at choosing an outfit for the day is better off for you to have an extra hour of sleep. 

Now you know why I appreciate and need my morning coffee so bad. I'm not being a whiny little brat who goes like "Oh I can't live without coffee" on Twitter for nothing, okay?

Anyway, back to the topic.

If you didn't notice the obvious, let me point it out for you. Most of my outfit are skirts and dresses. Yes, I prefer wearing skirts or dresses to work because it's easier to.... pee? Lol, nah. I mean, that's one of the reasons, but in all seriousness, I think skirts and dresses seem more formal. Maybe it's just me, I don't know. 

If you follow me on Twitter or Instagram, chances are you have seen me in this dress a gazillion times. Yes, this is my perfect go-to dress. 

No, not because it's feminine and flowery or because the cutting is nice. Although those are some of the reasons why I bought it in the first place. But you know what's so great about this dress? 

It's an easy dress. 
It's a dress where I can be as lazy as a sloth but look like I put some effort to get ready in the morning. The cutting, the pattern, the flare of the skirt. Everything about this dress, I love. 

One of my colleagues once said this :

"I know you're on your usual lazy mood today."

So I asked her, "What makes you say that?"

Her answer?

"Easy. Because you're wearing this dress. Your lazy-day-dress."

All I can do was just nod because she was right.

Do you have any lazy outfits too? Let me know in the comment below!
