Happy February Beauties!
How was your January?
Thank God I’m still here but, I’ve to say that my January has been a roller coaster of hospitals. I pictured entering 2018 on full gas but, somehow I’ve been ill twice, picked up by ambulance and ended up in hospital. One of the incident was caused by food poisoning. This experience (or should I say incident) has definitely shook me up. Henceforth I am watching what goes in my mouth and whom/where I eat at. -Not that I wasn’t before but, I am going to be extra careful now.
Lets talk about keeping it classic in the cold.
Winter in the UK this season is on another level. The cold is no joke at all and as if that isn’t enough, it rains constantly. Don’t let no sunshine fool you in the UK during winter. Its only out to gossip! The weather basically makes dressing up so frustrating. Of course layering is the answer to keeping the behind warm. Having said that, one has to find the balance in layering. You don’t want to be layered to the extent of toasting yourself. Some of the things I do are;
- Undergarment is your best friend: Be it a shapewear, leggings, camisole, vest or slip, these garments help tremendously. If the cold is unbearable, I take it up a notch by wearing lightweight shirts or turtlenecks underneath my outfits. I wear these under tops and dresses.
- Chunky isn’t bad: I find chunky sweaters very sexy. There’s something about em that screams edgy and chic. -And that’s why I invest in a couple almost every winter. They’re winter perfection in my opinion. The chunky’ness can sometimes mean you only have to wear a blazer or a stylish gilet on top which balances everything nicely. I’ve already touched on the subject of investing in great coats here so lets move on.
So I wore this outfit to church. Black, white and red are colours that I believe make threesome look so damn classy. They blend well together. The striped tailored pant is from Primark (got that seven years ago) and how freakin awesome that it still fits me. Ha!! I love the size of the chunky sweater. Great balance with the pants. While this was worn to church, I love how it has boss lady written all over it. This can easily be an office look as well. Belt your coats and chunky ensemble to add class to your winter outfits. Don’t forget to accessorize but, keep it on the minimum. You don’t want to look like you’re trying too hard. Don’t be scared to play with proportions too. Works wonders!
Hope your week is going on well.
Keep Warm! Wishing you a blessed February full of laughter and good health.
