I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again- I’ve never been a Little Black Dress (LBD) kind of gal. I like colour, sparkle and embellishment, and they always seemed like the boring option to me.
Who else has trouble relaxing at home in the clothes that they go out in? It can’t only be me. Jeans are too stiff, if I’ve ironed it to go out in then I’m definitely not comfortable flopping on the couch or cooking a meal in it, sometimes the waist is too tight, or the buttons annoy me… What does it boils down to? Unless I’m wearing pyjamas, sweat pants or a t-shirt that definitely belongs in the rag pile, I don’t feel 100% comfortable.
Let me start this blog post by saying that we have ALL made mistakes. Some of them are catastrophic mistakes (like the time I decided to cut my own fringe in Singapore), and others are minor misdemeanours (like wearing matching overalls to the shopping centre with your best friend). Either way, when I look back over the years of my life in terms of fashion revolutions, there are some epic face-palm moments.
We are all guilty of looking through our wardrobes and thinking, “I have nothing to wear”. I’m trying to do that as little as possible this year (one of many resolutions) and am instead trying to find ways to recycle my favourites. It’s a hard thing to do when you are going through a bit of a style evolution.
One of the best feelings when it comes to fashion is discovering a new combination of old favourites that you didn’t realise could go together. I often find that by about the third time I wear an outfit, I’ve got the accessories down-pat and I’m wearing my favourite version.
There’s a lot to like about summer: the beach, ice cream, longer days, acai bowls, watermelon and summer dresses.
One of my favourite things in the whole world is high tea. I still remember the first time I went to one, and no matter how many times I go, I still get excited beforehand.
