These brogues are technically sneakers, and Tuesday wasn't really a day to go all casual. So what I did was put on a suit (a blue one, with tiny white dots), and true enough, my colleagues placed my look as "formal" -- that is until they saw the shoes. But still the suit did the trick, much like that one time I wore a shirt and tie with sneakers.
I couldn't get myself to wear a business shirt under that jacket, though, because it's summer here and the heat is just so unbearable. I ended up with a plain colored tee. And because it's just a t-shirt, I always kept my jacket on while I was at the office.
In terms of accessories, I kept it at a minimum: just a watch and an understated necklace. There's already a lot going on in this outfit so I had to pull back.
As for the sun, he continued to shine mightily bright the whole day. My shoes were no match but at least I tried.
