As I am starting a new week filled with emotional challenges, I have vowed to myself to keep my positivity no matter what and I am somewhat glad that I am only looking at January’s back because that means we’re close to spring, and spring is always a good boost for all of us. Although I don’t mind winter, I am starting to get annoyed carrying the extra layers on my body, I am excited to wear lightweight dresses and overall garments to celebrate the beautiful weather. I really do love layering, don’t get me wrong, because I feel like we get to be more experimental when it comes to different patterns and textures…but commuting on the train daily has got me pooped. I have since then started to wear less layers and today’s outfit, although simple, is all sorts of crazy with the colorful aspects of it. I feel in love with this sweater I got from Zara for the whole texture part of it and my tactile senses are beyond happy. I don’t wear it much because carrying a baby while having this one would be such a shame because not only am I gonna ruin it with milk spit-up and stains, but little monster loves to pick on things lately and she would for sure start pulling at the sequins till they fall of.
It takes guts to wear this sweater, not going to lie and wearing in public is a little bit overwhelming as people’s attention would automatically be on you. I pushed myself out of my comfort zone today and went all out and since I am grabbing people’s attention, why not continue with flashy fuchsia pink trousers and yellow boots? If you gonna go all out, then do it right I say! Colors clashing is a bit of a game for me lately and I have been enjoying mixing and matching different patterns and testing out possibilities is giving me a thrill. Fashion is beyond amazing and even though it might seem mundane to some, to me, it brings me joy and happiness. Fashion and style are positive when done in moderation and excessive can be very disturbing and this is why I no longer shop as much as I used to. You can do many great things with second hand and vintage items, but this idea is not too appealing to many. Anyway, to get back to this sweater, I don’t really care if I am overdressed nowadays when I got out, because I really do it for myself and not anyone else.

I was walking with my sister when we went to shoot these photos and I realized that I was one of a very few people that wore color. Why is it that we automatically associate winter with dreary, dull, grey or black clothes? Why is it that we cant wear bright, bold colors to make our days happier?
