How to style cargo pants and a satin blouse

It has been a long weekend, and Monday wasn't the best and greatest start, but I am thankful for life. Over the years, I have never loved the act of working for another person; I dislike the concept, but I also acknowledge the fact that you need to work and plan before going off the day-to-day job.

Ever since leaving Ukraine, I have faced challenges, but one of those is working in a toxic environment. I value my life journey greatly, but I decided to share it because I want to hear your thoughts and share my experience.

When I arrived in the U.K., I applied for different jobs and had different options, but I decided to go for my current job. We started off with Zoom meetings and went to work on-site. On the first day of my job, I met the boss, and I called him sir, but he said he doesn't like titles and that I could call him by his name. I understood because not everyone likes titles.

I remember him trying to kiss me inside the elevator, which was strange because it was on the second day of working on-site. It was so sudden, and I never expected it, but my reflex was so active that I turned my face away. I made the mistake of not telling my husband. I remember saying to myself that if I informed my husband, he wasn't going to be happy and he might discourage me from working in this company, so I just decided to keep it to myself and distance myself from my boss. As I progressed in my job, my boss started making some gestures that weren't normal to me, which I ignored, and later I decided to tell my husband, who was mad but understood.

I will give you all the details about everything, but as it stands now, I have declined everything my boss is throwing at me, and he is angry and keeps acting up from time to time. I am not bothered because I am planning to leave. I only wanted to work here for a while, then leave and go back to working in the hospital and being the doctor that I am.

Life can be crazy at times because there are crazy and lustful people in this world. I recall my boss telling me he wanted to marry me, and I politely declined. He is Muslim and married, but I guess he needs more wives, which is not my business because I do not want to be part of that. The best thing I did was the protect my mental space. I will blog about the full story, but for now, how do you like my outfit?

I decided to wear these Khaki Drawstring Pocket Cargo Trousers (Bianca from Femme Luxe) and an H&M satin blouse to work, which is available in different colors, and I got it in both pink and orange. I wore this outfit last week, and I liked the way I looked. Dressing for work isn't something I have to think about; it just happens. I wake up and wear what I feel like wearing, or I just pick out the clothes in my head or iron the clothes the night before or in the morning; it's not a fixed routine for me anymore.

I got my Chunky leather high-heel platform sandals from Zara.

I took these photos on my way to work, and I remember a woman looking through her car windows and saying I look so beautiful. Drivers were smiling at me while the wind was doing its magic. I appreciate every one of them. Fashion can be fun, and that is the only type of fashion I wear; discomfort isn't my thing, and I hate being uncomfortable.

Cargo pants are super cool because of their comfort. Femmeluxe.co.uk has lots of cargo pants in different colors. You can get affordably priced white dressesblack dresses, and denim shorts.

Let me know what you think about the cargo pant trend: hit or miss?





  1. It is the bane of beautiful women to attract assh*ole men. I’m sorry you have been enduring that. I don’t know how it works in the UK, but here in the US he would be reported to his bosses. (That’s can be a mixed bag though as women are still ignored, although not as much since #metoo.) Hopefully when you return to work as a doctor, you won’t have to deal with the likes of him. And I love this fun outfit! Orange is one of my favorite colors, and it looks fabulous on you.

  3. This color combo is fab. I love how vibrant the orange is on you!



  4. This look is perfection! I love the contrast of the red satin and green cargos. Dying over those platforms too.


    1. Oh, dear, I got the platform on discount, and I got it from Zara. I should add the details to this post.

  5. A beautiful set that looks great on you. Greetings.

  6. You look great! Love the satin.

    And I'm so sorry you're going through this. It's still tough to be a woman in a men's world sometimes, even though it shouldn't be like this in 2023. Anyways, I know you'll get through this and come back stronger. Karma will take care of him :)

    1. Yesterday, really made me feel bad. Sometimes I just think about this issue and breakdown. Women really take it all and its so bad. I have decided to speak up and not just ignore anymore and it is starting today. Thank you for your kind words Krissi.

  7. Ojalá puedas irte lejos de ese jefe pronto y trabajar en tu profesión.
    Me gusta mucho este tipo de pantalón y veo que con una blusa de raso queda un contraste bonito, le aporta elegancia al look.

    1. Thank you so much, I appreciate your kind words.

  8. El conjunto te queda genial. La camisa me encanta!!

  9. I loved your look and you look powerful in it. about harassment at work, I've been through it and I didn't react because I didn't know how to act. it's amazing how men think they can wield that kind of power over women and that's okay. I think there should be tougher laws about it.

    1. When I saw the satin blouse at H&M I knew I had to get it. Harrasment at work can be so stressful as it take a lot away from your mental.

  10. Lovely look! Great write up! All the best to your blog. Thanks so much for your comment!❤️❤️❤️❤️

  11. Very unprofessional of your boss, glad to hear you'd be leaving there soon. Kindly update us when you go back to being a doctor. BTW lovely outfit, like the way you styled the cargo pants.

    Oh! I feel for you, that is so tough what you are going through. :( It will get better, you are so strong! I love the color of that blouse and the texture of it against the green pants. Such a gorgeous look!


  16. What a great outfit and photos! I love this combination and you look amazing! I hope you can leave this job ASAP as your boss' behavior is unacceptable.

    I'm so sorry to hear about how your boss is acting toward you. His behavior is so not ok.
    I hope you're ok. And I absolutely love your outfit here. Your red satin blouse looks so good with your green cargo pants. I love the difference of textures here.
