Office Chic in Ocean Colours + 1 Anniversary

Royal blue and emerald paired together remind me of the beautiful Caribbean Ocean, where I have been quite often while Eric attended medical school in Saint Maarten and Antigua. That colour combo is super refreshing and flatters every skin tone and hair colour. To give this ensemble a vivid touch, I played with different textures. The blouse is a really smooth flowy material-nearly feels like silk and compensates the heavy brocade and lurex metallic pants perfectly. I kept the accessories on the natural side not to overdo it and styled my hair to a more messy side bun to not look too polished.

On another side note: I am celebrating my first Blog Anniversary- YEAH. It was a wonderful year of extending my personal style through the wonderful inspirations and support of you guys. Thank you so much for all the love throughout the year. When I started my blog, I didn't expect such a supportive community and I am so glad to met so wonderful ladies within the blogosphere that I can call my blogger friends. Cheers to a wonderful blogging year ahead!

PS: I am linking up with my beautiful friend Elena today, she masters to rock floral and stripes so perfectly. Check it out!
