PARTY SEASON WAITS FOR NO GAL?

Party season is fast approaching, in fact it’s practically here, I can smell it in the air!  Only question is, will you stay in, or will you be slayin’?

You will more than likely be able to tell what I’ll be doing by just looking at this outfit!  Actually I’ll probably be doing a bit of both; either way – I slay, I slay, all day!!  You know it…*clicks fingers, breaks into Formation choreography*! (more…)

TRANSITION

I have made a decision for the next year to totally reduce my spending.  I’ve come to realise I waste a lot of money, and barely save any, so I’m making a conscious effort to stop spending and start saving.  I’ve said this many times and gone back on it – but I don’t think I really ever meant it, otherwise, well, I would have done it.  I have bought a lot of stuff over the last year, and I’ve noticed that I repeat things.  I mean, why wouldn’t I, my style is my style; I like what I like.  However, I don’t need to!

BASKETBALL

So I have this jacket, I found it while vintage shopping with my aunt; and I believe it is the single most complemented thing I own, or have ever owned!  It’s a Spalding NBA bomber jacket, the idea is that the jacket looks like the Spalding basketball; and it really does, the leather has been perfectly textured.  Dressed up and dressed down, it is everything!!!

GREY MATTER

Gotta start kicking layering up a notch as the cold has started to set in!

Layering matters!  One – because it looks good, and two – because it’s Autumn and the chill is well and truly kicking in!  I decided to do the whole tee under a slip dress thing, and throw a thick cardigan over the top; the denim jacket was added to break up the greyness, the extra layer didn’t hurt either.

As short as this outfit is, I was surprisingly warm!  Layering is definitely key, regardless of length.

DUSTERS AND SNEAKERS AND KNITS (OH MY)!

Various combos of dusters, sneakers and knits will for sure be my Autumn 16 uniform!

Well, Autumn is well and truly here!  We felt that as soon as we stepped of the plane at 5am on Saturday morning.  After spending a week in Turkey (a birthday treat from my honey) with temperatures reaching 32ºC at the end of September, I ain’t mad at a little crisp weather; it means I get to throw on my new knits that I bought during my recent trip to Paris.
