I did mention a few blog posts back that I have really stepped up my style lately. In my opinion; I’ve always known how to dress but when I stepped into my 30’s I started to REALLY work on my personal style. I think this has come out a lot more this year from the shoots I did with Katie Ryan Creations and some of the earlier shoots I did with my mum. What I realised however is that I hadn’t shot many formal outfits. One’s where I show how I dress up smart!

I have always had a thing for blazers and own a fair few, but what I realised is that I don’t own any suits. This is actually pretty bizarre to me, but I think it comes down to the fact that within the work I do (I am a Career Consultant by occupation) I have always worked for organisations that have allowed me to not have to wear them so there really hasn’t been a need to.

However, suits are never out of fashion and really help you to level up your style. As I didn’t have suits in my closet I decided to experiment and teamed two different shades of Yellow together. The result is a beautiful, show-stopping head-turning number that I am now planning to wear out to my next event.

None of the items I styled in this look are brand new and come directly from my closet. I honestly cannot tell you how difficult it is to be a shopaholic but one who is trying to shop less. It’s actually a living hell! However, for the sake of this look, I also found the fun in exploring my existing closet and seeing what I could create.

When it came to accessorising this look I had the option of choosing various different colours and had originally opted for a canary yellow. However, red then stood out to me and I am so happy that I made the switch because the finished look was just what I imagined and more.

Fashion Blogging Is Saving Me…

What’s it like functioning in a depressive space? I know that this way of being is a REAL thing as I function in this state daily. Trauma and dealing with numerous hurts that I have suppressed for a long time has been the main cause. Moving from one day to another and not really having a chance to work through things has heightened the state. It’s become quite a comfortable space for me because somehow, so much action take place here. I am always busy, always pro-active, always coaching, developing and creating and yet, I know I am not completely okay.
