Post-holiday No brainer Look

IMG_3238ps IMG_3229ps IMG_3237


I feel that I have been traveling non-stopping for the past several months, all of which are holidays – cannot complain though. Was in South Korea early December, then Yunnan from late Dec. to early January, then Chinese New Year dropped in early February and I went back to Mainland China to celebrate with my family.

And today is my first day back in office, with an inbox of 100+ new emails waiting to be addressed and an imminent peak season. Imagine how excited (reluctant) I am 🙂 !

To be honest I wasn’t completely in the mood of dressing up or going to work, but I am aware that I need to get (at least) 70% of myself together to deal with what needs to be done, hence this no brainer yet still office-appropriate look. The trench certainly spares me of extra thoughts on what to wear underneath – a simple sweater dress will do the trick, although you cannot see it from the pictures, I assure you it has nothing to do with mini skirt or décolleté hehehe

The white fur pompom keychain adds a layer of fun to the outfit, and I am also wearing a vintage sapphire ring that I got from my mother – we don’t get to see each other that often because of the distance and my job, but each time when I wear something that was originally hers, it reminds me of the time that we spent together, and in this case, makes me feel that she’s always behind me, having my back, whatever I do…

What about you guys? Still recovering from the post-vacation blues, or enjoying what the new year has to offer? Let me know!
