Striped shirt and pleats
by Thomai Papathanasiou

You know what is better than a plain white dress shirt for an office look? A striped shirt, even though it’s almost the same. And I found it without even looking. I was just going through the sale rack (as I often do) and I found it on my size. So I figured that¬†I could make good use of it. The detail of the bows on the sleeves is what makes it great really. Also what was the selling point for me ūüėČ

So the typical thing¬†to combine your shirt with is a pair of black trousers. Even though I followed the rule, I gave it a small twist with pleats. These trousers have turned out to be one of the best purchases I’ve done. They¬†are just the right thing to use in any occasion. Plus they are¬†so comfortable, as if I were wearing pyjamas! In order to keep with comfort a pair of cute flats is the perfect compliment.

To add some colour to the outfit, I used my red quilted bag. And¬†to match it I went for a red lipstick. I realised that I haven’t been using lipstick on a daily basis like I used to when I was in Mexico. But I still have¬†quite a few of them so I’ve decided it is time to go back to my old habit. I guess that’s a sign that I’m fully adapted to my new home…
