Good Enough

Blazer, Top & Trousers: Zara | Heels: River Island

Necklace and Rings: H&M

 

Hi all, hope everyone’s well and have had a great weekend.

Mine was very much productive, yet restful. I had a few client meetings; for one prior to, I was a little uncertain of the outcome, as for a second I questioned what I had done. However following the meeting, not only was I reassured by the perfect fit of the garments, but also by the client’s insist that they pay beyond that which they were billed.

I was then forced to recollect a conversation I’d had with a younger friend earlier in the week, advising him to own his craft and always embrace positive remarks given him in relation to it. “You are good enough!”, I’d told him.

I’m good at what I do – I know that. Why is it then so hard to take one’s own advice at times? How often do we ourselves need encouragement and the gentle reminder that we’re good enough? Well…just in case you need to hear it in order for you to be the fabulous person you are this week – You, yes YOU, are good enough! So go out there, own your skills/craft, be and deliver the best you ever can.

Sermon over. Haha!  😉

 

Onto today’s outfit; simply, I love it! You all know how much I appreciate comfort, and this look has that written all over it. Can I also mention that I’m beginning to generate an attraction for blazers – I’d love some in an array of colours and styles, please! Oh and this floral top; what’s there not to like? It certainly will do well for the autumn season also. This pairing is perfect, if I do say so myself.

I hope you are encouraged, and do like this look.

 

I’ll be right back!

Funmi xx

  8. Possitive attitude and aving someone believing in you is almost half of the success. I was lucky I had jobs where my bosses were really supportive and believed in me before I even did any real performance, and were able to oversee my mistakes for the good that I’ve done. The smallest compliments of your work can really raise your confidance and attitude a lot!

    Love your style, especially that floral top, so beautiful!

    Keep the good vibes and have a great week :*

  13. Hello Funmi, do you make clothes? I admire women doing well and building their empires.
    By the way when doubt sets in, being reassured that you are doing a great job can work wonders to one’s confidence. Continue being the best you!

  27. I love how perfect the jacke tfits you <3 I love the laid back effect of the jeans with the jacket.

    I can definitely relate to sometimes feeling like I'm not good enough and that i could have done things better/a different way with work/life. It can be overwhelming at times. It helps to focus on the positive stuff and surround yourself with ppl who encourage you also.

  31. Happy to hear your clients are happy. I always get a little nervous when dealing with some of my clients but I usually go above and beyond what is asked of me so it all tends to work out well. I need to write “you are good enough” on every mirror I have, I’m confident but starting this business has been challenging. Everyone keeps telling me I’m going to take off and be wildly successful but I’m still a little terrified. Loving today’s outfit! you look beautiful and chic like always.

  32. Love your top! That floral print is amazing.

  33. Ms Funmi Fums! I’m all about your blazer, denims and killer hills combo! and yes you are right- why are we our toughest critic? And for me, I tend to be more willing to let someone’s negative comment stick in my head than a positive one….maybe in some way the former is easier for me to believe….a lot has to do with self confidence and your feelings of self worth…ok, that’s enough food for thought for the day. Have a good week hon. Xx

  34. I love the motivation in this post! We all need to remind ourselves of our strengths each day. Love your girl boss look too!

    Best,
