LOOKBOOK | The suited peacock

You know one of those personality tests to know whether you're a panther, peacock, dolphin or owl? No surprise, I'm a peacock, described as colorful, exciting, fun, quick-witted, and adventurous. They're said to be natural entertainers. Well, the first time I took the test eons ago I was half-peacock and half-panther. Panthers are natural leaders and motivators, and are focused, outspoken, big thinkers, and also adventurous. I guess over the years I shed some of my fur and grew more feathers instead.

So I got this handsome black shirt with a peacock feather print a while back, which I think represents me very well. You can say I'm embracing my personality wholeheartedly without an iota of denial anywhere.

And then the cat enters the frame again. She always does this whenever I'm having my #ootd self-portraits. She could be a peacock, too, after all.

It was the middle of the week and I felt like wearing a suit. I picked a bluish gray ensemble with navy elbow patches. Like I wrote when I last wore this velvety suit, I have to start wearing what I've been buying of late. Never mind that there's no pocket square and lapel pin here.

The suit complements the shirt perfectly, linked together by this bluish color on the peacock feather prints. I kept everything casual as I'm wont to do, and completed the look with air tie and sneakers. I felt so bouncy and relaxed that day, I love it.
