OOTD: Winter Jacket

When it comes my outerwear, especially a winter jacket, I like to spend a bit extra to ensure I get a quality piece. There is nothing more annoying, than discovering you need a new winter jacket, months after getting a new one. I like my outerwear to last for as long as possible, so I don’t go for the cheap brands. I rather spend a bit more on a quality jacket, that will last for some years. And this beauty right here looks the part!

I got this stunning winter jacket some days ago and I adore it. In this jacket, I am ready for whatever the weather brings in this beauty. This W Blume Jacket comes in 4 shades – black, white, blue and green. I went for black because my old winter jacket is blue, and I wanted 1 in a different colour. Plus black can be worn with anything, which is great!

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.

How Fashion Influences Interior Design

Fashion is a world of colour, styles and creativity. The fashion pieces and accessories designed every season makes me feel so grateful that innovation never dies.

For as long as I can remember, I have had an interest in fashion and interior design. I am so enthralled by the beauty and creativity in interior design. As I flipped through fashion and home magazines, I noticed something phenomenal:  The fashion trends and the trends of interior design were almost the same.

It’s so fascinating how fashion and interior design have so much in common in terms of what’s trending and what’s not. They meet at a tangent on several occasions.

It’s hard to believe how fashion can influence interior design. Here are some reasons to explain the relationship between fashion and interior design.

 

The seasons dictate the trends

Just the way we divide the year into seasons, in the fashion industry the year is divided into 4 different seasons: winter, spring, summer and autumn or fall. Fashion designers draw their inspiration from these seasons. They get ideas from the changes in weather, the colours outside and how people behave during those seasons.

Fashion designers pour their ideas into their sketches which then come to life on the runway. In the same way, interior decorators also get inspired by what they see around them. As the season changes so do their design ideas to suit the changes they see outside. They recreate what they see outside in the rooms they decorate.

Inspiration from social media

Everything is on social media these days. People generally engage with pictures better than they do with written content. That’s why you see more people upload all sorts of pictures, most especially what they or other people wear, for everyone to consume.

What this means is that as you or any other person uploads pictures of outfits on social media, you are showcasing a fashion designer’s creation. In fact, many fashion designers upload their creations on social media for their fans to appreciate.

Just the same way you’re on social media there are thousands of interior designers there as well. These interior designers get inspired by what people wear and what’s trending in fashion and try to recreate this in their work.

 

Style personified

I can confidently say that the first source of inspiration for many creatives is people. When you observe people, you notice the way they dress and the way they live their lives. We express ourselves in the way we dress. This is how we speak our mood or how our activities will be like.

Fashion designers try to capture the possible moods, our beliefs and concerns in the outfits they design. Consequently, when interior designers watch us express ourselves in our outfits, they pick up what we try to communicate and mirror them in the homes. with the furniture and in the arrangements.
