Outfit Post: Shopping the winter sales

Hey fashion lovers. I took these outfit photos on my birthday, earlier this week. It was a fun shoot and I am grateful to see another year. I have been shopping the winter sales. There were a few gaps in my wardrobe that needing feeling, so I went all out and spoilt myself a little. I have not shopped properly for myself in ages. I buy bits here and there that I need, but this month being my birthday month, I decided to spoil myself a little and it felt amazing. It is so easy to spend money and time shopping for others, and forget yourself in the process. Going forward, I aim to remember to put myself on that shopping list!

I got this jumper along with others some weeks ago from Next Clothing  and I really like it. The colour and the simple design are right up my style alley. It also feels so cozy and warm. Perfect piece for a Cozy Foggy Day! How is the weather where you are?

The weather here this week has been cold and very foggy. There has also been a bit of rain here and there. So dressing warm is so important especially when doing the school run in the morning. Having comfy footwear is also important. I really love the boots I have on here. The black boots are some of the new wardrobe additions and they keep my feet really warm and toasty. The floors are super slippery at the moment, so having the right footwear on is crucial especially when doing the school run in a rush. The last thing anyone needs is to slip and fall.

I also love having a warm hat on to keep my head covered. It helps me stay on. These days, I never leave the house without a warm hat on my head. They are lifesavers.

The history of Gucci Bamboo Bag highlights the creativity behind the success of this famous brand. At the time of its initial production, finding leather was quite a challenge.

The creativity behind the Gucci Bamboo Bag yielded a stylish handbag that looks elegant and exotic. The bag remains stylish today as it was decades ago.

Outfit Post – My Birthday Look

It was my birthday some days ago, and I am super thankful for another year. I always look forward to birthdays, mine and my loved ones. It allows me reflect on how far I have come and plan the road ahead. I enjoying celebrating life and that is really what birthdays are about. Recently, I have been thinking of how we spend time and energy and things that do not matter.

We chase friendships/relationships that are dead and buried, we seek validation from everyone both online(especially online) and in real life, and it sucks. I have chosen to not be bothered with certain things anymore and instead focus my energy and time and those that truly matter. And it has made me very happy and satisfied with my life and those in it.

Which is why I switched off my birthday notification on my personal Facebook page. That way my birthday stays private and no one gets notified. If you remember, then it means you are special. That way, I don’t have to worry about who wishes me happy birthday and who doesn’t. It felt so good. I also took myself out of a certain Whatsapp group that wasn’t doing anything for me or anyone to be honest. That felt great. I have come to understand what really matters, and that quality always supersedes quantity.

 

Outfit Post – My Birthday Look

This was my birthday look. I got this red turtleneck dress last year. This is my second time of wearing the dress. I love the way it looks. The bright colour makes me feel a lot happier. I think it is great for the current weather. I have had the black sleeveless waistcoat for a few years now. It always works well as a light outerwear, more for fashion than function. The tights came into my wardrobe last year. I reviewed on Fashion and Style Police. The tights are advertised as magic tights that do not rip, and they are yet to rip. Loving the pair.

My black boots, sunglasses and cross body bag are some of my go-to black accessories. I love them.
