WELCOME BACK to my blog! If you are visiting for the first time then thank you for taking the time to visit. If there is anything I have learnt about fashion and style, especially since I have started blogging is that you HAVE to feel comfortable in whatever you are wearing. It will help if you purchase items that will provide you with longevity and not just a quick injection of what the latest trends are. Mostly you will find that you purchase items when it is in ‘style’ and then you wear it once and it ends up gathering dust in the back of your closet because after some time, it is no longer relevant right? I have found that most of my pieces that I have recycled from season to season are the most basic items. You can never go wrong with basics, especially if you are an indecisive shopper.

In the very beginning stages on starting my blog, I believed that you had to be so extravagantly different to stand out in this industry which is why that in most cases, the clothes I would wear on my blog, I wouldn’t really wear on the odd day. This made me so dependent on how others perceived me instead of how I perceived myself and most of it had to do with what I was wearing. Instead of my clothes making me more confident, It actually made me more self conscious. You don’t always have to be noticed or receive compliments to feel confident, you just have to know internally that you are beautiful.

Let’s take this outfit for example – This fluffy jersey, I purchased at Woolworths 2 years ago and it’s still relevant because it’s beautifully simplistic and it really does make me feel confident and girly. I paired it with a maroon pleather skirt that I had recently purchased from The Fix. I chose it because I could see myself wearing it in seasons to come and changing it up. In the Summertime, it could be worn with a basic tee and sneakers. I also purchased this rose gold backpack from The Fix because I always love to throw a backpack on when I am feeling playful and it instantly adds some childish charm to my look. Also, rose gold as a colour in general pretty much goes with everything so I don’t think you can really go wrong.

I decided to pair this look in this way because I just wanted to showcase how older items could make a ‘comeback’ and still be relevant. We often have this misconception that because something was bought last season, it is no longer relevant but it is what YOU make of it after all.

Can you believe that the year is almost at its end again? It’s that time of year where we can regret or rejoice as we reflect back on all the decisions we’ve made thus far but for now, let us not regret the fashion choices we make. This shoot was so much fun and quite far from the typical locations I choose. What do you think of the change in scenery? I like to keep it fresh for ya’ll.

About this Look:

I am so in-love with the newly purchased Palazzo trousers from River Island and what I love the most is that you can either dress it up or down. It’s perfect for a day at the beach or for that girls night you’ve been looking forward to. Either way, its practical and definitely an investment for the upcoming sunny season. Paired with my Strada Chic one-piece and Steve Madden strap-heels, it really gives the overall look a polished elegance. I then threw the denim jacket on just to add a bit of edge. I always love finishing off an elegant look with something edgy.

Note:

If you would like to order the Strada Chic one-piece as seen in the pictures then please pop me an email as my online store will be available shortly.

GOLDEN TREND

Woolworths hat and sandals, Strada Chic top and skirt

I decided to showcase two of my ultimate favourite Strada Chic items because 1-A-line skirts are my life right now and 2- comfort is key. With Summer slowly approaching, I find myself slowly transgressing into wearing lighter and ‘earthier’ colours instead of opting for brighter colours which I usually do this time of year. I’ve discovered that it’s best to buy neutral-colour items as it’s easier to pair as opposed to bright colours and I find that I can make so much more diverse outfits and in the long run save money.

I’ve also have a fascination with pairing same-coloured items because it leaves me to accessories and accentuate other elements of my outfit as a whole. Speaking of, I decided to pair the From Turkey with Love Hamsa hand bracelet and necklace that adds a effortlessly chic and delicate look to my outfit.

A bit of history:

The Hamsa hand is seen as the universal sign of protection as well as blessings, power and strength. It originated in the Middle East and was seen as a symbol of holiness, healing and miracles which would ultimately protect against evil doers. Alternative names for the Hamsa hand are the Hand of Fatima in Islam and the Hand of Miriam in Judaism. Although different cultures have different names for the Hamsa Hand, it reflects the same purpose in all cultures and that has to mean something right?

Aside from its symbolic meaning, this is definitely a golden trend this season. Its delicacy compliments almost every outfit with its subtle elegance. If you would love to get your hands on these items then simply visit the From Turkey with Love website and get ordering.

On that note, if you would like to order any of my Strada Chic items seen in this post then feel free to pop me an email and I will send you all the relevant information.  My online store will be available soon.
