23 Jan A little bit of foliage in this dreary weather…
I know that this time of year, many of us have the desire to throw out all our clothes and renew our wardrobes for the new seasons. Sales are calling our names through the computer screens and through the store front windows. However, being conscious of our spending and of our consuming is much cooler than getting that new in trend piece. I do love revisiting my wardrobe and adding a few new pieces isn’t wrong but when you already have a lot, then why not try to be more imaginative and creative in reworking the pieces you already have to make new outfits. The possibilities are endless! I promise! Even when you think that certain pieces don’t match, it doesn’t matter, give it a try and you’ll see that things only need to go together.
Today, I revisited my clothes, as they were tucked away in a box because I couldn’t wear them during the pregnancy and this weekend, I was able to get some of it out and I had so much fun creating new outfits and mixing and matching vintage too. As I have a few events coming up…pop-up shops and all, I want to be able to the most of my wardrobe. Even though, I quickly put together my outfit today, I was happy with how it turned out. It’s very 70s business chic but in the most colourful way. As the winter blues continue to kick in, I find it necessary for me to play with color a lot more to feel energized and inspired to take on life. Lacking sleep doesn’t help either… so when I need to adult and get on with my day, I like to dress up!
I got this blazer from chequered blazer from an old friend. She’s 90 years old and she was kind enough to give me a lot of her clothes when she was younger because she knows just how much I appreciate vintage. I instantly thought about clashing prints even though the color palette is the same; the chequered with the leafy print came out quite bold and is certainly statement but it’s still muted.
WHAT I AM WEARING
BLAZER: Vintage • SHIRT: Walmart • PANTS: Zara • BELT: Vintage • SUNNIES: Ray-Ban • BAG: Gift from le hubs • SHOES: Charles & Keith
This belt, vintage, is one I am very much obsessed with and I have worn it non-stop since getting it. I feel like belts add a bit more attitude to any outfit. It adds shape, femininity and grace. This one in particular is very opulent with the gold detailing and worked seamlessly to bring everything together.
For a mom on the go, this outfit might need a little bit more effort than a simple sweater and jeans but it is one that makes me feel very good about myself. A little boost in confidence these days is very much needed. Whoever said girls are easier to raise than boys is a liar and a half, but nonetheless, they’re adorable!
