Don’t we all love Olivia Pope?
The thing I love most about her is her strong character: she gets things done, she dresses well, and she damn well knows her stuff. She’s got it together. That’s what I always think of whenever I think about Olivia Pope. I’ll be honest here, sometimes, I wish I had my stuff together just like she does. You know? At least I console myself knowing that by dressing somewhat like her for work, I’m one step closer to emulating her.
I wore this outfit for the sixth edition of the bloggers’ challenge. In hindsight, I’d probably have worn my black patent court shoes, but let’s be honest, I wouldn’t wear those shoes to work even if I was paid to. I stuck to my trusty black court shoes that I probably wear 3 times out of my 5-day work week. Sometimes, comfort over toe-squashing heels. On a random side note, I also love how my job gives me the freedom to wear from formal business-wear one day, to smart casual African prints the next day, to even more casual wear by the end of the week. Makes me look forward to dressing up for work everyday.
