Hey guys, summer is finally here! Woo hoo! Lately my style is becoming a bit more clean, refined and polished. I’m striving to create a uniform for myself by having key pieces that I wear frequently which are the foundation of my wardrobe. While at the same time mixing in fun and dramatic pieces too. At the end of the day it’s always important to remain true to yourself. I’ve definitely come a long way in figuring out my style and I’ve come to the conclusion that my style will be a mix between classy, sexy and loosely fitted. Some days I want to wear looser fits, but then other days I do want to wear something that hugs me in the right places. It’s all about the mood and vibe for me, as well as the occasion, that will determine my look for the day. Only few are lucky enough to get their style right early on, but once you do you feel like a brand new person. With that said, get style inspired and shop this look below.
I’m a sucker for mini dresses and skirts. With my height they’re a great way to make your legs look longer. For a sexy feminine look I would pair mines with some sandal heels to show off the legs. In this look I decided to go with the over-the-knee boots to give the dress a more stylish edge. This shirt dress actually doubles as both a top and a dress, so very versatile. There’s just something about over-the-knee boots paired with wide brim hats that just works. Topping it off with the hat was a no-brainer. Even though this look is a ‘fashion’ look, it is actually sexy too. Showing just the right amount of skin between my knee and thigh leaves a lot to the imagination. Shop the look below!
The warm weather is upon us and what better way to kick-start it than in a little black dress. I paired my LBD with some black on black casual sneakers because I didn’t want to do the obvious and wear black pumps. Topped off the look with some cat ears just to add some fun to the look. Side note: Animal ears are a cute alternative to wearing a tiara. It’s fun and playful, yet you’re letting the world know that you’re still an adult.
For the past couple of years I’ve learnt that fashion rules are great and they should be used as a guide to help us polish and refine our own personal style. They shouldn’t be used as your end and be all on how you dress on a daily basis because sometimes mixing it up is so refreshing. The dress is from Sirens Fashion I purchased a couple of years ago and the sneakers are from a sportswear store in an outlet mall. The cat ears were purchased online from one of my go to places to purchase affordable items, Aliexpress. Ever since my closest girlfriend told me about this site, I’ve been hooked! I literally check this site regularly just to see which items I can purchase at a much cheaper price.
As the clock ticks down to the day I turn 30 (not fretting or anything) I’m becoming more of the woman I want to be. Not only emotionally and intellectually, but also when it comes to my personal style. I’m taking more risks, but also being mindful of what is appropriate for every part of my life. Knowing what works for me and what does not work for me. What I should splurge on versus what I can save on. Where and when to buy certain items. Over the past year and half I’ve really been sticking to the ‘less is more’ mindset when it comes to my wardrobe. If I purchase something new I remove something from my closet so that it’s not cluttered with pieces I no longer wear anymore. Editing and maintaining your wardrobe should not be something you do only at the start of Spring, but on a regular basis. Along with editing your wardrobe, you should also have key pieces that are considered your ‘go-to’ timeless items that will help build any look you want. These are the pieces that will help create your style uniform. The ones that will come in handy for that very important meeting, interview, first date or dinner party. I’ve rounded up my top 10 pieces every woman (and me) should own before 30.
