I’ve been off the radar lately as I’ve been caught up with so much. Hope everyone had a great long Weekend. Something that has caught my attention lately is God’s timing! There’s a phase one goes through sometimes where they think they just can’t seem to get anything right or nothing seems to be elevating in their lives, but as time goes by and you find yourself in an amazing situation you’ll be pleased it took you a while to get there. This is when you come to the realization that the other phases were just part of the journey and the learning process. The key is to always focus on your goals, be positive and believe in yourself. If you a Pisces like me, you would know that it takes a journey to get to the “believing in yourself” place but when you get there its lit! In this world where social media has taken over everything it’s very easy for one to lose track of their goals simply because social media makes everything and other people’s lives seem so perfect and this leads you to go into the “FOMO/ depression” mode. Baby girl take note that at the end of the day everyone is striving to be great and so should you. Again, stay in your lane, social media is great and it should be there to motivate you and not put you down.
Anyways, I’ve been taking this time to really reflect on what I really want do in my life and it has done me some good. White is my happy color that’s why I opted to incorporate it in my look today. I got this knitted stripe top from Cotton on a few weeks ago and it was love at first sight. I even got it in two different colors (Girls and shopping! No shame at all).One thing I like about Yellow stripes is that they are not that defined so they bring that simplicity to a look. I got this top in a size bigger so that I could wear it as a dress.
I wore a white shirt underneath to give it an even more simplified look which made up the perfect combination. Statement sleeves are big right one, it’s my current obsession! However, staying in a small town like mine, shops are not always stocked up so I prefer online shopping or incorporating shopping sprees only when I travel. I got this shirt from Legit, I didn’t even try it on in the shop but I knew it would work with a lot of items in my closet plus the details on the sleeves are exquisite!
Tip: If you are going to wear stripes; pair them with something in a plain colour if you are going for a simplified look.
But if you want to do an all stripes assemble then make sure that’s the stripes types are different for the items you are pairing together. E.g. horizontal vs vertical stripes
What do you guys think? Next time I am going to attempted stripe on stripe attire .
