Two more days of work and then I’m off to Berlin for the new year’s celebration. A mini vacation is in place since they made me come to work during these “in between days”. I don’t really see the point when my email box is screaming of emptiness…

Speaking of work, someone once asked me to post about my work clothing and tips about how to look chic in the boring office environment. The trick I’ve learned, is to keep it simple with the basics but to also add something that makes the outfit pop, such as an interesting detail or accessory. The topic actually allows me to introduce something my lovely boyfriend got me for my birthday: a blazer/cardigan designed by our talented friend, Richard Söderberg.

Richard’s brand Obscur is a menswear label but the smaller sizes seem to fit me fine (you can get his clothes at least herehere and here). I’ve worn this number on several occasions since it’s suitable for both office and free time wear. The piece looks professional, though it has that special “twist” which makes it look more interesting than those basic blazers or cardigans people would normally wear to an office. I kept the rest of the outfit simple with basic peg leg trousers, the only additional detail being the front of the white top. You can even add platform ankle boots and no one would make a big deal because the cardigan is the true show stopper here. In a delicate way, of course.

I hope you all are enjoying the holidays, I’ll be back next year!
