My Twitter profile reads, “Finance geek by day, fashion blogger by night.” Two very different worlds, and I generally prefer to keep them from colliding, sartorially speaking. I leave the leather, fur and sky-high platform stilettos at home when I’m headed to the office, but that’s not to say I don’t like to have a little fun with my work ensembles. When FLARE’s Ryan M. Cheung asked me, Kimberly Lyn of The Souls of My Shoes and Nelia Belkova of Style Blog to document a week’s worth of office-ready outfits for FLARE.com, I was up for the challenge.
The feature, ‘Blogger Style Challenge: Back to Work’, went live this week and I’m thrilled with how it turned out. Nelia, Kim and I each have very different personal styles, but I love how they shine through despite strict office dress codes. We may be sitting in cubicles all day drafting memos and pulling together Excel spreadsheets, but we’re going to look good doing it, damn it. Anya dubbed me “the most stylish accountant” she knows, and I’m going to go ahead and assume she knows plenty of finance folks and wear that title with pride.
Thanks Ryan and FLARE for giving us working girls some love! Outfit photos and details are below, but check out the full feature, including my office style tips and commentary on my favourite work-appropriate pieces, over on FLARE.com.
