Busting out the Birks and drop-crotch pants in honour of it (technically) being (almost) 
the weekend (give or take a few days). All the while hoping that a fresh white cami, slick 
trench and matching neutrals might help this pass as legitimate weekday-wear. Hopefully 
it's working, but then again I am way too comfortable to care.

I am notorious for testing the boundaries between what is workwear and what is plainly 
off duty dressing. Case in point: flashing a little midriff in what would otherwise be a 
perfectly respectable and straightforward office-worthy outfit. Of course, a simple half-tuck 
of the shirt would have worked just fine here, but my current obsession with that triangular 
hint of midriff seems to overtake any instinct towards modesty of late. Perhaps it's the warmer 
weather, or perhaps my long-time love of everything oversized requires a flash of flesh 
to counteract that old potato sack effect. Either way, my current style philosophy seems 
centred on the notion of relaxed sophistication, of undone coordination. Because when the 
mind is working in overdrive, it's nice to feel a little more relaxed everywhere else.

Taking advantage of the trans-seasonal weather patterns and mixing up my day-to-day wear a bit. 
Oversized shirts tucked (okay, scrunched) into sleek leather leggings, topped off with draped 
masculine blazers and ultra-luxe accessories. Offsetting the oversized with the fitted, the masculine 
with the feminine, the luxe with the economical. Life is a balancing act, with the art of getting 
dressed for the day being no exception. At least that part can be a little more fun than others 
though, right?
