Adding More Colors to My Work Attires

When I think about what to wear to work, black and white always comes into my mind.. It's like, there's no other colors than those two!

Every single time when I think about working/office outfits, I don't know why...but those two colors would pop into my head, and then I'd start remembering the tops that I have in those two colors and started to imagine what to wear it with, and just 'suddenly', forget or rather abandoned my others tops in my closet.. Sigh... It's like my mind has been set to think, that colored tops are only for outings..and only black/white is appropriate for office. Ha. Ha.

Although...black or white does seem 'decent' and would always appropriate and always nice to wear to work...rather than bold striking colors (at least, I think so! ;p)
Because I really think that you can never go wrong with those two colors...

But then...  When I look at the clothes that I tried on for the office wear last time, when I was playing dress up in my room.. I realized how boring that color is! Most of them are black or white! Ugh. How boringggg! Kan?! =(

So.. I dived into my closet, and try to find some colors..to inject in my working attires.. And.. I found some!! Hoorah! How can I forget that they've been hiding in there all awhile this time?

Thus today, I thought I wanted to share some of my colored / 'fun' working attire that I have in my closet (which I didn't realized I have it for so long already!), apart from black or white..  LOL ;p

So these are some of it! (Errr... I knowww, there's still black & white that I tried on, in here! Haha. I just couldn't leave this color, could I? ;p)

1. A boyfriend shirt in Navy Blue which I bought in Jusco. Cinch it with a woven Grey waist belt

2. Club Monaco Black White blazer, pair it with a zebra printed spaghetti-strapped shirt from a vintage store

3. Green Mustard blouse with pockets and gold buttons. Got this from my mom! It was hers. She wore it in the 80's..and now, hands it down to me! Oh, I love vintage stuff! - I wore it with a Black pencil skirt from Cotton On

4. Animal printed tops. Can wear them alone, or with some waist cinchers. - In this picture, the Brown cheetah printed top is from Topshop. And the Black & White cheetah printed top is from Zara. And the Black waist cincher is from Coast

5. A long sleeved Mimpikita Zara pleated Green chiffon top.

6. Cerulean colored chiffon shirt with pleats at the front. From FCUK

7. A Cream colored oversized cardigan from MNG, an Orange silk tank top from Portmans and a scarf from Marks & Spencer

8. Karen Millen 3/4 sleeved zippered top, in striking Yellow

9. Waterfall blouses. The Red one from Principles. And Black from Warehouse. (And the Grey vest is from Zara)

10. Red checkered top/jacket from Forever 21.

11. Violet blazer from Agenda.  Dark purple halter top from Seed. White pants from Warehouse. White patent bag from Dior

12. A Turquoise sleeveless silk top from Target. Black blazer from a vintage store. Scarf from Warehouse.

Hmm...after listing out all the rainbow colors, above... I realized, I did not try any of my Pink tops! That's so weird! For a girl who likes pink...hehee
Well, maybe next time when I wanna try out my clothes and play dress up in my room again, I'll snap some pinkies... Ok?  ;)

So tell me ladies, what is your usual color that you wear to work? Share with me! Is it black and white as well? hehe ;p
