Over the top

Am I, have i been or should i be over the top. Questions i ask myself these days when things start feeling a bit excessive. 

I've probably got this minimalist thing skewed and maybe it's the highly ambitious in me that truly believes one does not need to wear too much when considering the colder conditions i've anticipated for when December comes and less is more favourable.
Wearing a crop top as one of my latest attempts at a fall sense of dressing is on the up and overdoing it is the key ingredient for a season that requires you to layer up like a sandwich. My Jaeger blazer is thick and the colour is a bagel-beige so i need to beef up the standards. The Cognac belt & Burgundy boots evenly spread and trim away the excess crust my cluster rings and fur stole add as filler to the tasty combination. 

A food for comfort recipe i'm likened to that warms up the sentiments of a cold winter. Amidst the leftovers that leave me feeling gluttonous and pensive, with reference to my thoughts before, maybe i am overdoing it just a little bit. 
I talked about honing my power and sense of control back in Feb. Fast-forward six months plus, my efforts have slimmed down and i've started to let things go which suddenly meant that my clothes, or lack of, went with it too. I need to go and exercise restraint in attempts to savour the remaining bulk of outfits i have. So, i can copy & paste bits of my life back and still throw a little something extra on top with hope that i look put together when i'm not. Even if that means certain items won't make the cut.

Dubai Diaries


 Stuffed & Satisfied with the sun giving me the clearest skin and the best tan my body has experienced for the longest in my latest travels to Dubai. Its safe to say I'm in no hurry to return soon as its great to arrive back to sunniest autumnal weather, but it was definitely money well spent!

Hot Tropics

August is here and i've been feeling hot, hot, hot and not always in a good way. Summer is the least of my favourite season and the tropical mix concoction plastered on me is the only cocktail i'm willing to take to get me high. 

I might as well do so whilst indulging in a cool breeze of the palm trees designated at Barbican Jungle to embrace the botanical havens and the floral bomb celebrations my carnival camaraderies (in both outfit & location) had to offer as my last hurrah to the end of summer. 

Wearing: Jones of New York Vintage Blazer, Topshop Tropical Mix Tea Dress (sold out), Zara Gold Heels (sold out) and Jewellery (Topshop, Bex Rox)

Coming to America

I jump for joy at the thought of making my mark on a new territory, even if it is temporary when i decided to slumber for the entire week in the city that never sleeps, New York. 

I think back to when i started planning for my trip especially with what to pack on my trip abroad. The ultimate goal with packing, is not to give yourself a "I don't know what to wear" moment for the entire duration of your stay, if up to par with your wardrobe and planning isn’t your thing, then flirt with the idea of spontaneity by bringing the quality of fun into the simple pieces that you bring with you.

Planning for a holiday, especially for a beach trip or a city excursion requires a level of fantasy that your wardrobe has to commit too. Allowing you to be the best version of yourself in unfamiliar grounds.

Bearing in mind I’m in a state of transition with my wardrobe undergoing a huge clearout I could not gather the correct pieces. I felt plagued with too much choice, thus taking flight in my Bill Blass Trench with a basic crop & jeans by American Apparel to swoop in and save the day(s) I was out & about during my #Selfie trip to New York.  A state of narcism as a result by documenting this post with the help of EmmaJane Keply  to captivate this moment beautifully.
The best part about going in May during a season when ease and wearability are prime fashion targets, the uncomplicated urban dressing of New York has lost all overtones of executive aggression and everything is now so simple for a look of effortless assurance in #Me, Myselfie & I
