Wishing for warm weather

So, here I am stuck in a 15cm downpour of snow, while my husband is out in Florida basting in the sun! …Ok, he’s actually there for work and is super busy and most likely hardly enjoying the sun, but I can still be envious, right? ;) Watching him pack all his t-shirts, shorts, shoes, made me long even more for the days of heat and sun. Today I decided an acceptable way to cheer me up, and hopefully all of you as well, was to put together a collage of summer clothing and accessories I can’t wait to get my hands on.
…Now that I think of it, this is not satisfying at all! Just makes me yearn the sun even more! *sigh* Oh well, this is the best we’re going to get for now, right?? Enjoy! ;)

An outfit fit for a winter Saturday

Yes, I realize that it’s Tuesday and not Saturday, but I thought that the cardigan I wore in these photos fit perfectly with my stripe post from yesterday. Additionally, I wanted to show you an outfit I would put together for a Saturday with the fam.

As I mentioned in yesterdays post, I fancy me some nautical wear, and I feel this cardigan is a pleasing way of showing that, without being too literal. The stripes give the outfit a little punch against the overall simple outfit. In lieu of wearing a simple pair of blue jeans, I opted for these greyish-blue pair which makes the navy on the cardigan stand out more, rather than just blending in. Originally, I was wearing a black tee, but felt something was off. Asked the hubby to throw me my white v-neck, and voila! An outfit was made! Comfortable and easy. Now, looking at these pictures, you may be thinking “Heels? With kids?? Really??” Ah, my friends, you see, unlike stiletto’s, wedges not only give you the height that you are looking for, but also the balance and comfort. Moreover, they’re much easier to walk with in the snow than a tall, sexy, stiletto. Those will have to just wait for warmer weather ;) Until then, enjoy the pictures and be sure to check in tomorrow!

Bye for now!

First Impressions

My First post!! Here we go ;)

First impressions. Whether we like it or not, they matter. The world’s a judgemental place. This is why I like to live by my rule of never selling yourself short. You want to be that person who’s walking on the street, have someone look at you and remember you. We like to think that as long as you got the right clothes on, that’s all you need, but that’s not the case. You need the confidence to go with it. You don’t need expensive, brand-name clothing, you just need to know how to dress to impress, and how to carry it all together.

My goal here is to get my readers to feel the way I feel when I leave the house. I’m not saying that I always walk out in a ball gown with full-on make-up and accessories. You’d be surprised how one person decked out in the latest trends, can stand next to someone in just a plain white tee and skinny jeans, and have the more casual one stand out more. Its all in your persona. How you carry yourself. Whatever you have on, you have to make it work! Lounging around at home? Hanging in some pajamas? Make THOSE work! It’s a start! Make. It. Work. Three simple, yet oh so powerful words you should tell yourself every day before stepping out of the house. As mentioned, don’t ever sell yourself short. You never know who you’ll run in to, and you want to make sure that you’re comfortable with yourself and whatever you’re in. Now, I’m not saying to walk around with your nose in the air, snubbing everyone who crosses your path. Play it cool. You may think it’s silly, but trust me, it’ll don a new light on how you feel and how much more productive you can be.

As the great Oscar Wilde once mentioned;

“You can never be overdressed or overeducated”
