That 70s chic

Personal style is such that it is a reflection of the individual’s taste, experiences, and perhaps even aspirations. It is a form of self expression. Adventurous, elegant, sprinkled with a high dosage of quirkiness, I like to think of my style as an expression of the modern woman with an edge- classy but not afraid to be quirky either. She stands out from the crowd, for the right reasons.I love that fashion can transcends eras and cultures. Add personal style and the options are limitless.Today’s look is inspired by the 70s era. The double plaid look was one well played (see what I did there!šŸ˜‚) with the clever juxtaposition of colors.Think Farrah Fawcett. Think plaids. Think wide legs. Think vibrant colorsI bought each of these items separately not knowing what I would pair with what. As soon as I got the jumper, I thought of the plaid pants and thus; like a puzzle, piece after piece, it all came together. That for me, is the most exciting and possibly fulfilling part of creating a look. Starting with a blank canvas and creating something you are proud of, can relate to, and and hopefully, one that others can connect with. Hope you like the look.

Happy new month. December, be good to us all.

Love,

The Emerald lass.xox

Back to School

So school/uni is back in session and the fashion aspect is certainly not in recess either.

With autumn mode activated, it’s sweater weather and this slogan sweatshirt from River Island comes in handy for that casj chic, I-just-threw-this-on look. It’s the perfect combo of chic and comfort and of course, with the slogan Feminism emblazoned across the chest, it was a no brainer. Power to the Sisters!šŸ˜€

To balance things out, I matched the bright orange with a pair of white distressed skinny jeans with some floral embroidery. The result: certainly more than A for effort!šŸ˜œšŸ’ŖšŸ¾

This look is not just for students but is also perfect for that off-duty look. Whatever you get up to this weekend, hope you get some weekend style inspo from this. Have a fantastic weekend.

Love,

Your favourite lass.xox

Hi lovelies, happy hump day. It’s been a minute. This was meant to be a short post but I’ll just go with the flow. I actually had this post ready a week ago but was feeling all shades of down; mainly due to how I felt I was doing with the blog and how IĀ felt I should be doing. The thing about running a blog or any other outlet of creativity is that, you pour yourself into it, all of you- itĀ represents you as a person and the thingsĀ that drive you. So it’s more than just sharingĀ some outfits or keepingĀ up with trends.Ā It’s a reflection of some parts of you to a large extent which meansĀ you want to see itĀ thrive as much as possible.Ā At some point in your journey to where you believe your destination should be, you let that famous thief- comparison sneak in and try to rob you of your joy.
