Wore a bit of maroon for the final State of Origin match! Really like this dress and tall boots combination after trying it out before. And of course the maroon blended in nicely with all of the Queensland footy shirts around. Was pretty cool that Queensland won for the 8th year in a row :)

The truth about this branded polo shirt I was given through my work is that it is two sizes too large. They ordered a batch to hand out to celebrate the success of a large project, and there were not a lot of size options available. This was the smallest, but at the time I didn't see it as an issue as I wasn't expecting to wear it often.
When we were asked to wear it again today, it was a little tricky. I couldn't tuck some of it into jeans or hide it under a hoodie like last time, as they are not the best mid-week office clothes. After comparing the options on facebook, I decided to just wear it with a pencil skirt. It was fun talking to the other ladies in the office and comparing the ways they had worn theirs today - a few of us are smaller than a size 12 so we were in the same situation with shirts too big.
Although my office is business casual and people do wear jeans every day of the week in the office, I do try to keep them just to casual Friday. Not every team or department is as relaxed with their dress codes, and I want to make a good impression. Will see if I change my tune when I have to wear the polo again next week of course!
