Style to my office.

It's been very long time not sharing something- fashion, culinary, even traveling. Earlier this year, I was pretty busy in choosing any jobs offer that suitable on me. Well basically as you know that I'm graduated as an engineer but even I don't have any matter with all of it complex calculation and designing, I just didn't think that the working days would supported me to inspire people through the way I dressed up. And then I ended up choosing a Management Development Program at one of private banking owned by one of Indonesia's conglomerate. Months back I stayed in Megamendung, Puncak in West Java at their training center, learned about whole system in banking industry. It was really like I'm back to uni again. So just now I stay in Jakarta, working at their headquarters office. The building was awesome, standing right next to one of Indonesia's big TV station in same area-both are under same group. And there are a small library with breathtaking view to Gatot Subroto street which then become my favorite spot.

So here, I share some my looks about what I wear to office daily. In first look I was wearing a 3/4 sleeves Batik dress with A-line cutting. The dress itself was bought by my parents. The pattern and the color just so simply yet elegant, paired it with my kitten heeled shoes from Zara. Well, I'm wearing any Batik clothes twice a week, and at first it was literally made me get confused since I was not dressed up in Batik oftentimes. But as time goes by, everything just so fun, like every morning I play mix & match of clothes.

In the second look, I also wearing a dress with a drapery at waist and the cutting is slimfit. To give a deep formal look, I also wore stockings in black. And for last touch, I chose my lace up high heeled shoes in cobalt blue. Since I always in love with pointy shoes, and those lace just bring another classy yet edgy look, and I feel it brings a sexy touch to my legs. And all are from my favorite RTW brand, ZARA.

The moments that remarkable.

One morning where sunlight came inside across those window and all I saw was buildings and traffics. Then to a huge hall that crowded by people who were in and out elevators. Maybe they were in hurry or just need to look for anything they possibly could did. I kept walking on my black kitten heels to pair with my gray blazer over white dress.

One saturday afternoon at a favorite coffee shop in downtown, and people were queueing asking the barista to make their favorite beverages. I asked for a cup of red velvet latte with a very cute latte art on it. Then I walked upstairs looked for empty seat. It was a coffee machine in front of me and that was the very first time I completely knew how to brew coffee.

One time I was looking to those skyscrapers from a rooftop in the heart of this city, waiting for sunset, and sipping a cup of chamomile tea. It was a little cloudy, not quite windy, and several voices were coming from girls that were preparing for a birthday of a friend of them. They were laughing and retouching their make up. I turned my eyes to the other side, at a corner were some of lovebirds that glancing at each other eyes with magnificent smiles.

One other afternoon, through the traffic jams at the flyover in a tiny Parisian district, electro pop playlist played on car's audio, while outside was a very great scenery. I saw a silhouette of a mountain standing upright behind blue sky, and the sunlighted just touch my green trumpet sleeves top made an interesting shades. Then sky changed colors and city lights sparkled beautifully, Japanese cuisine, and a little bit shopping before the dreams end.

The moments that bringing up a feeling of blessing to figure out another side of myself deeply, because there are still many hidden unique colors inside those palettes.

Afternoon Soiree at Two Stories Bogor.

Bogor is one of small cities near Jakarta that have it own beauty and attractions, then something that make people come along. Called by the rain city, and the reality yes it is; fresh air, a little bit cloudy and the sun still shining through those grayscale clouds. It was at one fancy restaurant with raw industrial theme which also provide a rooftop bar, named Two Stories. After long-days-off from blogging and sharing #OOTD through this blog, finally decided to post something. 

 
Recently, halter neck top is something that girls admired much. Then I paired mine with a camel pants with nude court shoes. 

It was day out with my friends from office. And I'm decided to join banking industry after leaving maritime and oil&gas dreams. Because I realized that working days must be the days that I really want to spend of. Like it is represent who I am. When you are in offshore structure or even only at port then a shipyard, you can't dress like you want to be, there are many safety regulation because it risk in high level. But in this industry, you can wear your fancy clothes, walk with your sexy legs with designer's shoes, dress like SJP in Sex and the City. Meet boys with suit whose smile like Leonardo di Caprio in The Great Gatsby or funny Neil Patrick Harris in HIMYM. That's kind of things in daily that I want to live in.

Afternoon tea at Lewis & Carroll.

It was a day before Chinese New Year this year, during my visit to Jakarta which still in rainy season that is something challenging. Then that late afternoon, which I was expected to have a sun-kissed-on-a-cup-of-tea while gathered with friends from uni life, and what was happened is showery all day long. This place is stole my heart since the very first time I opened their door. The interior, concept and all tea selection they offer. I was so surprised when the waiter came out with some tea samples and each of them has unique scent. And they also sell many fancy stuff for your daily tea time at home. All this things is found at Lewis & Carroll that located in Jalan Bumi, Kebayoran Baru.
