Dress, Belt and Clutch: And Other Stories
Shoes: Zara | Earrings: Stradivarius
Hey lovelies, hope you all are well and have had a great week thus far. I can only but hope the same momentum that has brought us to this day will see us through the rest of the week. Although it’s rather unfortunate the lads won’t be bringing football home (I had to revise this post to share my disappointment, haha 🙁 ). Nonetheless, they did play amazingly well, so they deserve utmost commendation.
My word for you today:
Show love, extend grace and encourage peace.
This life we live is far too short to not make the most of. Live your best life, hunny. Live your best life!
Onto today’s post shall we!?
As we currently are in the wedding and celebratory season, there seems to be some level of social appraisal for what is and isn’t appropriate. Such ideas of the ideal guest, most appropriate seasonal colours, abstinence from colours that might not appear celebratory or seem ambiguous; all these, I choose to remain aloof of. I’m not to be misunderstood here, I still will look suitably dressed for the occasion, although subjectively.
Over the weekend, a friend made a passing comment on how she loves me in black, and understands why it is my favourite colour. To this particular friend, I’ve never expressed such to; her judgement was based on observation and assumption. Was she wrong? No, I do like the colour black (amongst other colours). In contrast to the negative connotations attributed to the colour, it equally speaks highly of elegance, sophistication and strength. If you are still wondering where I’m headed with this, yes I would wear an all black outfit to any ceremony; wedding included. I very much appreciate its volatility when it comes to styling. Selecting the right structured garment, right textures for the occasion, flattering accessories and maybe a complimentary pop of colour to achieve balance, you are well on your way.
Am I alone on this? Can we agree to disagree? Please share your thoughts below on whether there are colours you deem inappropriate for occasions. Your thoughts sure will be enlightening.
Be Right Back,
