YOU NEED A TWO-PIECE SETS IN YOUR CLOSET…

Today’s outfit is a look I wore to church. I’ve had this two-piece set for over four years, but only worn it once, so I thought why not. I fell in love with it all over again. I don’t know about you, but when I wear something from my closet that hasn’t been worn for a long time and it fits, I feel so proud. Like gurllll….you’re taking care of yourself. Lol!

Two-piece sets have been trending and still going strong in the style world. From classic tailored suits to comfortable lounging sets to sexy mini skirt sets, they’re everywhere. They come in varieties of colours, prints and style. This is a trend that everyone should give it a try because they’re easy to style and versatile. Its like buy one, get several ways to wear it for free. Nothing better than that right?

Are you keen on the two-piece sets trend?

The weather this week has been amazing, -Cold in the morning, but sunny (felt like summer) from afternoon going into five o’clock. The flowers have started blooming beautifully as well and I couldn’t be happier. Signs of new beginning. After a knee pain, I’m back working hard on myself in the gym. I haven’t got the diet bit down hundred percent, but I’m definitely making better choices than before. I haven’t mentioned on the blog, but I took a break from teaching last year September. I’m currently working in the kitchen which I’m enjoying much, but not good for someone watching her diet. I find myself munching everything and anything. Cakes, pizza, brownies, chips and the list go on.

A lil bit of background of me as some of you might ask, “how do you go from teaching to the kitchen?” Once upon a time there lives a girl called Mavis. It was her dream to become a broadcaster. Fast forward, she migrated to Austria in her teens, fell in love with the food and decided to be a chef. She went to a culinary school and did an apprenticeship in Renaissance Hotel as a cook. Fast forward again, she moved to the UK to further her education. She gained her chef’s diploma and worked a bit in the kitchen, but got bored. She went back to studies to study her first love which was to be a broadcaster. Gained her bachelor’s degree, but unfortunately became pregnant and couldn’t continue that career journey as a single mother. Working in a school inspired her to become a teacher (SEN) so she went back to studies and that is how she ended up in the education field. One thing about Mavis is that she gets bored easily so she likes to switch things up. Being in the same working environment for awhile feels claustrophobic. She’ll probably return to teaching this academic year (September) if God permits. Ha!!

    The coordinated blouse and skirt set you’re wearing in the lovely outfit photos above looks very pretty – I love the colour, the design and the look. The diverse experiences in your brief auto-biographical history sound interesting. I hope your broadcasting dream comes true if you still want it, and if not I hope you can still enjoy the fantasies. Best wishes for the rest of your year 2019!

Maybe life didn’t go as you planned, but what a beautiful life you have. 🙂 I love two-piece outfits too because they are so effortless. And this one looks fabulous on you! I love purple and you look so gorgeous in purple print. Love the contrast of the heel color too. Simply a stunning look! Hope you have a great week, my beautiful Mavis! 🙂

    Yes, I love twin sets, and I have a vintage one I wear often. This one looks great on you.

    BTW I had no idea you went to the cooking school. So cool you are chef (among other things) and now work in a kitchen. It is great to try different things and pursue separate careers. I had a few different jobs myself. Not much of a kitchen experience, though. I worked as a dish washer in restaurants and that’s the only restaurant job I ever had. I have never cooked professionally and I often wonder what it would be like. I even had an idea for a restaurant that would serve ethnic meals.

    Last Friday was my last working day in a state school where I have been teaching since September last year. They hired someone else and said they were required by law because she had more work experience. I don’t know is that actually the reason, but well…It was hard to leave the kiddos, I grew attached to them but I can’t let it depressed me. Now I’m interviewing for jobs. Who knows what the future brings? I think every job can teach us something. So far I have worked as airport personal, a flight attendant, an art seller, a receptionist, a waiter/bartender, a dish washer and a teacher. Quite a few jobs!

      Sorry to hear about losing your teaching job. You will find another great one. You’re such a talent and every school will be lucky to have you.

    Wow, sis, that is such a cool story about you going to culinary school!!! Hey, if you don’t go back to the education field maybe you should try the broadcaster and chef combo. Make a a Netflix series about your cooking adventures. You have the personality … and style for it. I know all of us would watch! You are slaying in this two piece set. Love the color too.

Love hearing about your background and it’s fair to say that getting bored easy isn’t always a bad thing. I think it gives us the opportunity to grow and learn more about ourselves because it causes us to make the necessary changes to not be stagnant. Thanks for sharing and being inspirational.
