EDGY

Hello lovely

If you are reading my blog for the first time, I am proud to make mention that I haven’t purchased a single item of clothing for Moi since 1 January this year. Everything I’ve worn this year thus far are items I already own. There are clothes I have had for years and some that I purchased and just never bothered to touch. Now each day I become more fond of what I have and less of a need to indulge in compulsive consumerism. I am completely amazed at how I have managed to kick such an addictive habit.

So what’s new on the blog?! My hair! Truth be told, I made an attempt last week to do it myself and it didn’t turn out so well. So I have waited a week for it to grow out and slipped in to the hair salon today to get it done properly. When I arrived home and showed my husband, he got the shock of his life and then figured he would eventually get used to it.

In terms of styling, this hairstyle does come with a price. The cut is edgy and not so feminine therefore the clothes I have chosen to wear today are fine however, I am unsure how I would look in pretty floral dress or my work wear for instance. Speaking of work wear, fingers crossed my colleagues do not find this cut too inappropriate for the work place.

In the coming weeks, days and months, I am looking forward to all the new looks I can bring with this new hairstyle. Its the new me and I hope you will enjoy what’s to come.

Thanks for reading and hope you all have an ah-mazing weekend.

COMFORTABLE IN FLATS

Most of the time I am in heels for work. I feel it suits my general work  attire and helps that fact that I am vertically challenged.

I didn’t feel like wearing heels today though and a pair of pumps may have been more suitable for this outfit but these brogues are just as stylish and so very comfortable.

Thanks for reading and have a wonderful day.

DRESS = TOP

Good morning gorgeous people!!

I wanted to blog about one of my favourite mini jersey dresses that I frequently wear as a top. Thats right. Since having a baby, there are just some mini’s that I wouldn’t get caught dead in. However, rather than discount or not wear it, I now pair most of my mini dresses with suitable bottoms.

It’s a fantastic way to maximise your wardrobe items and allow yourself to be more creative with your pairings. Hope this inspires you to have a good look at your clothes and see what you can do the same with.

Thanks for reading and have a lovely day.

PREPPED UP

Day 84 – All prepped up!

I first fell in love with the preppy look when I started watching Gossip Girl and saw how perfectly preppy Blair Waldorf looked.

This week I have decided to use Blair Waldorf as my style inspiration and show you my take on looking preppy for work rather than school. It’s also a great excuse to make use of my neglected glasses.

This is the first of a few outfits that I have put together for this week. Hope you love.
