Valentine’s Is Coming, Where’s Your Outfit?

Whether you celebrate the international LOVE day or not, whether you’re loved up in a relationship, celebrating Galentine’s instead or just using it as an excuse to have an ultimate pamper day and celebrate self-care. It’s also the perfect excuse to dress up and slay! I’ve not got any plans as such, but for those of you who do; I thought that the fashionista in me would step in and choose some of my favourite outfits just in case you need to do some last minute outfit shopping….. check out my top picks from some of my fast fashion favourites.

Having a Green Day

I’m having too much fun with these titles, but more so; I am really enjoying experimenting with different looks. Much like the yellow look before. I opted for pieces in my wardrobes that were not a co-ord and were instead separate pieces; all purchased from different places. I love colour blocking and I particularly enjoy doing this with bright colours as opposed ro light shades and pastels.

Blaze It Up in Yellow

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!

In Bloom In Nasty Gal

It’s become quite apparent that I don’t see myself as a fashion blogger now because to be quite honest with you guys, I don’t have to the money to invest in buying clothing to promote other people’s brands for free! LOL. Guys, honestly, on top of that fact I also don’t have the time to shoot fashion content regularly so moving into the realms of being a lifestyle blogger and penning content around all the areas of a modern woman’s lifestyle suits me perfectly.

Dressed like a Queen in Chi Chi clothing

I have been holding onto these images for a while guys because as you can see, after a brief hiatus is shooting any looks, Syianne and I stepped out a took a few pics on what was one of the most windy days ever! we persisted and managed to grab a few shots for the gram (because let’s be honest, you only need 1 or 2) But, it wouldn’t be right if I didn’t share this beautiful dress on sashashantel.com too.

Bossing It Up In BoutiqueFeel

I know my lovelies are rather impressed with how regularly I turn up on sashashantel.com right now. It’s been a very long time coming but I am really enjoying hanging out here and I have endless new content coming.

A Pinterest Inspired Look

As I am getting older, I am getting that more experimental with my look. I’ve found that my style of dress has changed quite dramatically and clothing that I loved even up to a year ago, I have come to find I no longer reach for. I’ve also become open to researching looks online; getting inspiration from websites like SheerLuxe and Pinterest to influence the looks I put together to wear day to day, as well as for evening events and blog shoots.

As a micro blogger it’s not always easy to get quality brands to work with you. As much as I work very hard on my content and take a lot of time to ensure the images are just right, if you are not a massive influencer you can often get overlooked. For the most part, many brands will try and offer you a collaboration but then say that you need to pay for the shipping. My instagram DM’s are filled with these requests. However, one brand than respects my work ethic and choose to work with me again and again and I honestly love their brand and the quality of their footwear.

#MyLookMyWay | Back At It in Nasty Gal

And to think I decided to quit fashion blogging in 2019.

I know it’s crazy but I had this notion that I was passed my sell by date! Imagine me, confident Sasha, transformation and mindset coach Sasha and yet, the fashion blogging scene just felt so ageist to me. Fast forward to 2021, when Covid ripped up the world and my FUCK IT hat came back on. My mind has CHANGED! Life is for living guys, who wants to have regrets that could have easily been avoided. I love fashion and I love dressing up and putting affordable looks together. As much as I love coaching and am committed to making it my full time gig. I also recognise how much my blog can open up my world to. I am a brand in myself and at 35, I am no where past my sell by date, in fact; I’ve only just started and what a time to come alive.
