WEAR WHAT MAKES YOU HAPPY WHEN YOU CAN
Everyday is an opportunity to play dress up. Even if we're only getting dressed up for yourselves. In fact, especially then- if you're dressing for yourselves. If you think about it, your free time is the perfect time to play dress up. Too many people wear shabby clothes when they're around their house or when they go out for a walk. Don't wait for a big occasion, wear that pretty dress you have today- or whatever item in your outfit that you are saving for the right occasion. Life is an occasion enough. An occasion to be grateful and to be joyful. Embrace life and joy that it can bring. Wear clothes that make you happy when you can. Obviously, we cannot always wear what we want, sometimes we need to be practical or dress for work. However, only too often do we forget to dress up when we can. People speak about being comfortable, but isn't a fabulous outfit often just as if not more comfortable than the same old 'around the house' look? Why not wear a pretty dress when you go hiking? Why not wear something fun when all you're doing is getting some air (nobody seems to go out these days for any other reason anyway)? Why not dress up when you're at home? Use clothes as a therapeutic tool, as an outlet for your creativity or a fabulous armour that helps you take on the world. Don't be afraid to experiment and have fun with clothes. That's what they're for. That's my message of the day. Wear what you want, when you can. You may not always have the chance.
THE STORY OF THIS OUTFIT
I wore this outfit for a short stroll by the sea. The reason why there isn't anyone around is not just coronavirus. This island isn't densely populated so it is not uncommon to have empty spaces all to yourselves. We often don't see a soul when we go on our daily walks. I lost the habit of daily walks for a while because work was well , let's just say that working from home it took some getting used to, but now that I'm more settled in my routine, I'm trying to go for a quick walk at least once in a day. This outfit took only minutes to put together, but I loved the outcome. I like the contrast between this A line square neck dress and the biker jacket and boots. Knotting my pale blue shirt was a last minute touch, but I feel it added something to this look. Lately, the colours of my outfits have been more neutral. This outfit for example is mostly black with burgundy touches in the form of the faux leather jacket and the bag, but then there is a bit of pale blue with the shirt. It was a comfortable outfit to wear. Most importantly, I felt good wearing it. I'm excited for spring fashion, I have to say. The arrival of spring has been bittersweet, but we have to make the most of things, I reckon.
