Outfit Post – Fashion Bloggers Please Dress Warm

It is my birthday in a few days and I am looking forward to celebrating the new year in my own way. Being a January baby means I get to start the new year with a birthday and align my goals to suit my new stage in life. I am still in the process of styling my birthday outfit in my head (it has to be perfect since I am a fashion blogger right?), not really decided what I would wear or what I would do on the day. But I am sure ideas would crop up closer to the date, so look out for a birthday outfit post soon.

I wore this outfit some weeks ago. The Silver Grey Long Oversized Coat With Faux Fur Hood is a new wardrobe addition. I am so in love with it. It is the right length and it feels so warm and comfy. The faux fur trim hood is an added touch of beauty and the puffy fit is great for layering this winter.

Dressing warm is so important in the winter and we fashion bloggers need to promote that a lot more. I remember when I initially started blogging, I came across a few fashion blogs that would show off outfit posts wearing summery pieces in the middle of winter, and I thought it was so unrealistic and misleading. 9 times out of 10, these bloggers would pose outside for a few minutes to get the photos taken and get back inside to wear something more sensible. Like who walks around in a mini skirt and crop top in the winter months?

I don’t play with the cold weather. I dress warm and make sure the kids are dressed warm too. So I find it crazy to see many fashion bloggers still doing this. Fashion should be stylish and comfy. You should not have to choose one over the other, when you can have both. So my fellow fashion bloggers, please think twice before you step outside to be photographed in yet another revealing outfit in the middle of winter. It looks very silly and dangerous. Health is wealth, remember that.

OOTD: My Love for Backpacks

Since becoming a mother, my fashion life has taken a back seat as expected. I am unable to wear sky-high shoes when out and about with the twins. I only started going out with my handbags. In the early days, I used to share the baby bag with them. I couldn’t see the point in taking 2/3 bags out at the same time.

During those days, I began to appreciate backpacks and shoulder bags. The fact that I could pop everything I needed in a backpack and still have my hands free to push the buggy or grab a child felt amazing. These days, you can easily spot me with a backpack. I find them very comfy and handy to have around. So when the opportunity to feature a Zatchel bag landed on my doorstep, I knew the style I was going for instantly.

I went for the Belgrave Cream Backpack. I really like the design and colour. This beauty is handmade in England from the finest quality soft leather. I adore the quick open clasp concealed behind the buckle and two front pockets with magnetic closures. I think it is a cute and stylish backpack.

The green top is also a new wardrobe  addition. I got it in the sale some weeks ago. It has been worn a few times now because I find it dead comfy and easy to layer with a blazer.

I am still in the process of sorting out my autumn/winter wardrobe. I am hoping to finish up this week. So look out for loads of autumn/winter outfit posts. I have a few lined up already.

OOTD: One Spring Day

I am loving the cool spring weather at the moment. The weather is no longer painfully cold, so my bare legs are out for as long as possible. How are you enjoying spring? Has spring sprung where you are at?

 

 

I love wearing dresses in the spring/summer months, I guess that is due to the fact that I have been stuck in heavy coats, jeans and tights all through winter. I find dresses comfortable and easy to style.

Take this black dress I have on for example; all I had to do was to throw on a few accessories and I was good to go. That is the beauty of a little black dress, it never goes out of style, and it is dead easy to dress up.

 

 

This black embroidery smock dress is a new wardrobe addition; I got it some few weeks ago. I love the floral embroidery detail a lot. It is a perfect piece, and it is great for transitioning from winter to spring (just pop on a blazer and a pair of tights if you need one), and from day-to-night (with a change of accessories).

 

 

“I’ve always thought of accessories as the exclamation point of a woman’s outfit.” -Michael Kors.

I saw this quote online some days ago and it hit the nail on the head, with regards to the major role accessories play in an overall look. I think accessories are very important; they determine how good or bad an outfit would turn out, so I like to pay my accessories special attention, even more than my pieces.
