For someone that’s worked in the financial and insurance industry for the last decade, I’m likely considered as someone that pushes the limits when it comes to dressing for the office compared to some of my colleagues. My love for fashion has always encouraged me to pull out my ripped jeans, leather vest, or sneakers for the office, even if I’m interviewing candidates or seeing clients! I know that I’m lucky to work for a company that likes to have a bit of fun and doesn’t correlate office wardrobe to professionalism.
For those of you who grew up in casual and flexible working environments like me, you’ve got nothing to worry about in terms of adhering to a strict dress code. But did you know for some of my peers in the same industry, they’ve mentioned that open toe shoes and even sandals are strictly prohibited in the office space accordingly to their companies’ dress code policy (like, OMG!). Here is a recent outfit I wore to the office and yes it consists of my recent favourite Caged Sandals gifted from my friends at SHOEme.
SHOEme and I wanted to show you some fun ways to break conventional rules, including sporting sandals to work!

I hope this post have sent those of you who suffer from a strict office dress code syndrome some virtual motivation, to get you out of your comfort zone and break some rules! Because guess what? Rules are #MadeToBeBroken, am I right?! 😉
Come on – you must agree this outfit is stellar for the office! Follow along for more #MadeToBeBroken inspiration on SHOEme’s Instagram!

LOL! Our work just introduced a more relaxed dress code when we’re not seeing clients, but I’m pretty sure this outfit would still turn some heads! Looks great though!
