When I scoured my closet, I only had 2 pairs to show for: a faded 90s shade and an all-black incarnation - a travesty especially since I don't even have the most crucial colors in stock. So I rushed to Muji to remedy my denim depression. I copped the two basic colors I missed - the classic All-American blue jeans and the most versatile of all - a deep navy number that looks as good with sneakers as they do with leather lace-ups. I've already broken them in quite nicely and I'm proud to report that I'm smoothly adjusting to this looser dress code, or is a lack thereof?
Ever since I started the so-called corporate life, I've been very blessed to work in offices that don't have a strict banker's dress code. In my past workplace, the guideline was smart casual, so it was rolled-up khakis, button-downs, and loafers all-day, everyday. When I moved here to Singapore, my new office was way more liberated. After a week of the same preppy ensembles as in Manila, I took a look around and decided that damn, I think I should get more jeans.
