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.

Fashion and Style – Best Looks of 2018

Fashion and Style Police was created as a result of my obsession with fashion. I am a lot better now that I am a mother and I have other things to worry about. But I still make out tome for fashion and style and I can help writing about fashion. Last year was a busy year in the fashion category on the blog. I made sure I took as many outfit photos unlike previous years.

Here are some of my best looks from last year.

 

A Slice of Lemon

A Jumpsuit of Many Colours

I am a jumpsuit lover and Femme Luxe came through with this colourful jumpsuit. It is such a beauty, perfect for the summer months. I love the fact that it is super easy to style. It is definitely my favourite jumpsuit at the moment.

This look screams chic. The orange and black look great paired together. I think the highlight of this look has to be the Miss Selfridge black leather jacket. It looks so stylish and chic. Love it.

Style tips for when you are on the job

When it comes to an office environment, it is very important to get your outfit right. I remember how I dressed back in the day when I had an office based job. It is important to look smart and professional on all days, even on dress down days. You need to get the balance right – looking smart and comfortable while doing your job.

Here are some style tips you may find useful when you are on the job –

 

Add a touch of your company

At my last office based job, we had printed work shirts and silicone wristbands we wore to work regularly. They helped raise brand awareness and they looked really stylish. Clothing and accessories with your company information is a great way to support the business and it also creates a form of togetherness.

You can implement a touch of your company into your work attire. The easiest way to do this successfully is to add accessories with the company information in your outfit. For example, Lancaster Printing’s silicone wristbands are customisable and are a great way to get this right.

 

Dress to impress

When it comes an office setting, it is very important for you to dress to impress. Dress down days are no exceptions. My last office job was in a call centre in Manchester, and we had a very relaxed way of dressing. I always ensured I looked smart every day. I didn’t go into work in heels everyday but I made sure my clothes and accessories were clean, smart and well put together. It amazes how I see many people dressing to work. Some come in wearing very tight miniskirts and cropped tops, which I think is just trashy. I have also seen many workers wearing ripped jeans or sky-high heels and being unable to walk in them.

Dressing to impress is a very important style tip for every office setting. We should all ensure we dress the way we want to be addressed.

Let your personality shine through

When it comes to fashion and style, I always advise anyone to stick to trends they like but you also need to remember you are in an office setting. So the trends you do like must be appropriate for the office. The fact that you are digging the ripped denim trend does that mean it is acceptable to wear them to the office.

When you wear pieces you are drawn to and style them in your own way, your personality would shine right through and it makes you stand out even more.

 

Invest in your pieces

You should spend a little bit more to ensure your office pieces stand the test of time. A classic skirt or trouser suit is worth investing a bit of money in. You would be spending more money on a great quality suit than you would spend on a great pair of jeans, so get your wallet ready. The better the fabric and lining of your piece, the more expensive it would be.
