What I wore…..
Yesterday was a very grey, rainy morning when I jumped out of bed because I had overslept and almost missed a bank appointment. Usually for early, important appointment mornings like these I am well prepared, with my clothes for the day and hand bag with essentials neatly placed in one corner of the room. However, yesterday wasnt one of those days. I was lost when I woke up, quickly went through emails and instagram (sneaky) and hurried for a shower.
Shower is a place where I make most of my important life decisions and thats when I mentally started going through my wardrobe. Little dramatic, but this day when I was running late was the day I decide to face my biggest styling fear- Mixing prints! I absolutely love this trend of mixing prints and contrasting fabrics, but it isnt my strongest virtue.
I knew I wanted to wear my brand new maroon and white striped box crop top (Forever 21); the challenge was to figure the bottoms. The air was a bit nippy so I was sure it had to be some kind of pants. I first tried my black and white polka dot pajama pants with cuffed ankles (Forever 21), but that made me look like I was going back to bed. Next up, I tried black n white treggings with zip details (H&M), still wasn’t happy with the look.
Teaming it with black and white floral satin pajamas, cuffed at the bottom (River Island)gave me exactly what I was looking for. All this left no time for me to do hair/make up, so I quickly grabbed my metallic silver Michael Kors hand bag, silver bracelets, silver anklet and silver arrow detail neck ring. Finished the look with a high pony tail.
This little exercise made me realise no matter how big or small, face one challenge each day. Nothing is more uplifting than conquering and smiling!
