Let’s get back to the archives, shall we? Today I’m listing some of my favourite work appropriate outfits I’ve worn in the past year. I’m well aware that not all these looks fit into the typical ‘corporate outfit’ box, but I think we all agree that wearing only black suits is a little boring.

A few weeks ago when I was still in Perth I was sitting on a bench at a train station. I was waiting to meet up with a guy who was going to sell me his camera, but he was running a few minutes late.

Sure, some of the ideas I have are a little crazy and too ambitious to realize in a matter of weeks or months, but there’s still so much that can be done a smaller scale. In the end, all big things achieved are the sum of lots of small things. Here are my tips and personal thoughts on how to get good ideas and to ACTUALLY make them happen…
