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.

Sasha Shantel X Love Leggings #LiveInLove

I hadn’t heard of this brand before they reached out to me for a collaboration. But I can honestly say that I was missing out as I have never worn a pair of jeans so comfortable; and I mean NEVER! I practically shot this look then returned home and wore it at home too. That’s the kind of comfortable I am referring to.

Orange Is The Colour

I’ve never ever purchased an orange blazer before. In fact; I don’t really own much orange clothing. But there is something really amazing about this orange blazer. I have your typical black and blue blazers, I also own yellow and green blazers, but nothing beats my new fave. I had already planned my all white ensemble and knew that the blazer would make it a LOOK. But, I honestly was not ready for this.

Stunting In My Green Shein Suit

Don’t I honestly look like a Jazz musician in this suit? lol; but I absolutely love it! I really wanted to try something a LOT different from my norm. Fashion is about pushing boundaries and not always sticking to your comfort zone. This suit couldn’t be further from my comfort zone. A bright green, not tight fitting suit teamed with big black boots. I never felt so free in this easy and effortless look.
