Every day we (read: girls) wake up
and face the same dilemma – what to wear. I don’t know about you but I would
sometimes stand and examine my wardrobe carefully for good 5 minutes as
if I see it for the very first time (insert a joke here lol) and then start
coming up with outfits in my mind. I admire people who prepare their outfits
the night before. I would never be able to do that. I make The Decision in the
morning based on the destination/occasion, my mood and the weather (don’t get
me started on the unpredictable English weather). However, here are the
tips I have gathered during my morning “struggles” how not just to
pick your outfit but how to make it always look ‘on point’ (obsessed with this
lovely slang term; thank you whoever came up with it).
It’s in the bag
can’t stress enough how important it is to have that one (or two/or three –
whatever number you can afford) high-quality expensive statement bag. We are
talking real stuff, not a faux version that some pretend to wear proudly. Yes,
you can happily swing around a cheaper bag but making that one big investment
will pay off. Distressed jeans + simple tee + statement bag = l.o.v.e.
My personal number one
choice is my Michael Kors (I am the MK girl through and through).
bags which have their special place on my personal wish list:
Sport Those Sneakers
I’m sure you know
that feeling when your heels are nearly killing you and you secretly wish you
had your favourite sneakers on instead. Don’t be afraid to pair them up with
your favourite dress and run your errands looking fab and blister-free.
A sweater or a
denim jacket tied around the waist would give your outfit that pulled together
look. Yes, you gave it a thought in the morning and yes, you rock. Talk about
the art of layering + having an extra item of clothing for those chilly evenings.
All genius is
simple. Cuff your jeans or pants (skinny or loose, pastel or bright) and you
will feel like a model – experience guaranteed! It will not be a breakthrough
confessing that all my pants (read: trousers if you are British) are either
short or cuffed. Adding those stilettos will make you want to rock the
If Olivia Palermo
does it, so should you. I’m not even kidding. It is all about the cinch! It
takes a second to put it on but it provides you a whole day of fabulous. Fit
your frame and throw a belt over your top and a jacket/coat in a cooler season.
It’s a sealed deal.
not a novelty but not many take the plunge and try it out. The best of us
can occasionally miss the mark with mixing fabrics, cuts, colours, looks.
Practice makes perfect & inspiration is everywhere we look. Take up that
mixology class 😉
Hope you found
these ideas handy and enjoyed reading this post.
