Reflections

Hi lovelies! Thank you so much for all the love on my previous post.. You are amazing! Do you ever have one of those days where you count your losses more than your blessings? That was me yesterday and how unfortunate it was to start the week on a proper low note. I’ve always been a planner and it doesn’t sit well with me when I’ve planned something a certain way in my head and it doesn’t work out exactly that way. I mean, if you’d told me I wouldn’t have everything figured out by the time I was 24, I would have laughed in your face for 24 hours straight. No joke.

Yesterday morning, I literally sent a message to my BFF listing everything that was ‘wrong’ with my life. She replied me counteracting every single bullet point (yes I sent bullet points because I do the most) with a positive view and perspective. As silly as it seems, all the good things that I did have didn’t seem to matter anymore and I realised how easy it is to slip into that space of negativity. It’s so very important to stay positive (although easier said than done) and I thought I’d share with you something a dear friend shared with me recently. Every morning, she lists 5 things she’s grateful for before stepping out of bed and I think that can quite easily determine the course of your day. I hope this blesses someone 🙂 Now! Enough ranting about me and lets talk about this outfit.

Today’s look is an easy, floaty slay featuring a cropped cape blouse and flared tailored trousers. I’m not one for an all black ensemble, I’d rather white to contrast nicely against my skin but this look is an exception. The sheer, floaty nature of the blouse gives off an elegant vibe, creating tones of black which of course makes it look less stark. I’ve accessorised with gold jewellery and an embellished purse making this look appropriate for a nice evening out.

I hope you like it

Alex

    It’s so easy to sometimes forget all the things that are working fine and throw ourselves a pity party. Glad your friend was able to remind you that you are doing just fine.
    + I love the fit.

      I can definitely relate! Thanks darling xx

    I can totally relate with dwelling on the negatives, in fact that is exactly what I am discussing with my bf right now and he is trying to cheer me up. I would definitely try to focus more on the positives although it can be quite hard because I always want everything planned out, I feel like I have under-achieved at my age (I’m not even old ooo). Although I prefer seeing you in white, this black makes you look really sleek and I can see myself rocking this for a night out.

    Love how easy and elegant you make the outfit look. We always have those days when we think life isn’t going as planned, but hey God gat us x.

    Love the outfit and love the truth of this reflection. I definitely find myself in those days where I wake up feeling defeated. Will have to put to use this strategy of counting my blessings before I rise!

    I really understand how it feels and I constantly have to remind myself that there is so much good in life. Also, I also really enjoy when you open up like this 😊
