Office Ready with Oasis

Malena PermentierOutfitsLeave a Comment


If you say “classic outfit to wear to the office”, I instantly visualize a black pencil skirt worn with a crisp white shirt and black pointy heels. Now don’t get me wrong, I love a classic look. In fact, I’m all in for it. However, in order for me to feel comfortable, I like adding a bit of personality to my office outfits.

Wearing: Oasis katy coat (also love this grey one), Oasis check blouse, Oasis black pencil skirt, Oasis black sandals, 3.1 Phillip Lim black mini satchel (in LOVE with this silver metallic one), Sportsgirl layered necklace (similar here), Michael Kors silver sport watch, Assorted silver rings

It’s kind of random to start a post like this, but my current state of mind is something like: “Man, it’s hard being a grown up”. The routine, the responsibilities, never having enough time to get things done, it’s just frustrating. To be quite honest, I’m having a hard time finding the right work and life balance and to stay on top of it all.

Neoprene Sweater

With a hit of neoprene and a pair of lace up heels, I’m not sure whether this outfit qualifies as casual any longer. But I’m not sure if that matters either. I’m wearing a sweater from the Nicole X Missguided collection, which happens to be my favourite piece of the range. It’s a tad over-sized and with its cool details, it’s everything but your regular white sweater. Along with the comfiest and softest Mavi boyfriend jeans, this is one of those outfits that I feel utterly good in.

Imagine this. You’re moving from Perth to Dubai. You’ve sold most of your belongings. You’ve packed up half the house. You’ve made arrangements at your job. It gets cancelled at the last moment. It happened to Hassan and me. Let me share with you the story in which I got to experience first-hand what discrimination really means.

Front Twist Skirt

The best thing about dressing for transitional weather in my point of view, is being able to wear leather jackets (or coats in general) with bare legs. There’s just something about it! I wore this look last week in town and I have to admit though that I swapped the heels for flats after not too long.

Wearing: Quilted leather biker jacket (H&M), White structured top (Zara), Chance front twist skirt (similar here and here), Diane Von Furstenberg heels, Black chain bag, Layered statement necklace
