I’m not really sure what I was going for with this outfit! I started off with this burnt orange-coloured pair of pleated culottes with gold buttons at the top, which in my opinion was reminiscent of a Japanese schoolgirl uniform. The reason I pulled it out was because I had never worn it out since, and I didn’t just want to leave it to collect dust. However I encountered great difficulty in trying to match it with my other clothes. I think the culottes are now too young for my style and I just didn’t like them anymore, a fashionable reflection of a bygone age of my life.
The navy blue blazer I ended up pairing the culottes up with, seems to be more work-appropriate and an indication ahead of my imminent corporate life. I didn’t intend to wear the clothing items like this, but the contrast between the schoolgirlish culottes and the corporate blazer really does reflect reality. I’m about to graduate soon and can finally put an end to years of hard study since 1999 (I started going to tutoring when I was 9 in preparation for the OC Test! I can’t believe I have been studying since!) I’m so excited to start working as I love the idea of earning money rather than spending it on uni fees, but it will be difficult to get used to! Therefore in a corny sense, this outfit does sort of reflect my real life situation of being in a transition stage, going from study to work lol.
