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.

Hey peeps. If you follow me on Instagram, you would have known that yesterday was my birthday, yayyy. I took the day off blogging and just focused on having a good time, and I did. I had a lovely spa day, and a delicious Chinese dinner, with my favourite people. I am extremely grateful for another year and looking forward to greater things ahead.

If you remember, I featured an outfit post on leather leggings some days ago and I got mixed reviews. Many liked it, but some did not think it was something they could wear. So I decided to feature the leather leggings again, but in a completely different way, and I hope it changes the mind of those who think leather pants are not for them, because leather leggings like any other leggings is a wardrobe staple

To refresh your mind, this is how I wore my leather leggings last week:

I went for a chic casual look by pairing the black leather leggings with a blue crop top sweater, chelsea boots, sunnies and a faux fur coat.

This week I went for a more dressy look. The tall black shimmer high neck tunic top  complements the leggings beautifully. I am petite but I went for ‘tall’ because I wanted it longer than my regular tops. The top hides all the bulges and bumps anyone would be concerned about, and it changes the look completely. Yea, leather leggings are versatile like that.

I hope this post inspires someone out there. That is the whole idea behind the Outfit Post series, to give you ideas on how to match pieces you already own, and what pieces you could add to your collection. Leave me a comment with your thoughts on the outfit.
