It's monday again and its time for a new outfit post. I've been looking for a good pair of jumper shorts since forever but could not find any in my size, so when I accidentally saw this piece in my news feeds, I fought for it! Haha! (Girls will get what I mean). They aren't jumper shorts but pants aren't so bad. In fact, they're a a little less casual. Plus, this one from The Coterie is detachable, so it's double purpose! Cool, right? It is pretty risky sporting a jumper without getting stares but daring yourself to stand the stares and pulling off a boyish look (I like to call this the plumber look sans the tools in the pocket and the hard hat) and giving it just a slightly sexy feminine touch is part of the fun. The key tool to this is an understated top, a chic pair of heels, and some attitude. Accessorizing will just defeat the purpose and take away the basic beauty of the whole ensemble, atleast for the look I'm going for. What could be more beautifully basic than denim and white. I would love to try and pair this with a rolled up muscle tee sometime.
This was last2 weekend's outfit and while that was about 9 days ago, somehow the photos convey my current mood at the moment. Weak smiles, tiny frowns, little smirks, sunsets, cloudy head, hair down, denim, my less chatty self and all things laid back if you get my drift. I just came from a 3-day bazaar/ exhibit called Eskina! where Blind Clothing participated and I'm either unable to get over it or still beat up from surviving the most exhausting (but exhilirating) weekend of my 2014, physically and emotionally I'd say.
I was thinking about the title of this post, but more than a title what came to me was a rhema.
When you're afraid to try something outside your comfort zone and convenience.. Man up.
When you feel like you've made yourself emotionally vulnerable to someone you trust and they end up using it against you to feed their newly found ego.. Man up.
When you find it hard to get up in the morning to train or stay up late to work some more.. Man up.
I could go on and on.. but that would be ranting and I like to keep my sunset chill vibe.
Man up, girls. And Man up with poise.
Cheers in advance to an awesome week?
