I should say that this is the last week till I turn 22, that feeling? that feeling is bitter sweet. I get excited at the fact that I am turning a year older, but also I’m stressed at the fact that there are times that I will need to adult with no excuses. I know someone who is older than me reading this is just like ‘are you kidding me?’ but well, these things do happen and it is okay to have a fright, don’t we all have that though?
Today being the exact week before my 22nd, there was snow. It snowed so bad that college was shut. A part of me was happy, especially because I have been having these bad migraines over the past couple of days and so this is my chance to relax, but the focused A student (not) part of me really wanted us to have a whole day in school, reason? I needed to have so much done. which I eventually will do by the end of the night, only problem is that I tend to overwork myself trying to balance between all these things that life throws at us.
I got inspired by the snow and immediately thought of a snow date. You know me… I take myself on dates in January; yeah I know I’m bad, but if you do not treat yourself who will? I know my best friend is somewhere reading this and saying ‘uhm … Me?’ but that is not the point. I digress
What came to mind was a nice dinner, mostly featuring myself but location should be the city centre, or shopping… isn’t that a date too? I know I have a great time shopping and what better way to boost your shopping mood than looking good while at it?
So I went for an outfit that is so me (pink shades) but quite classy and cosy all at once. do you ever get that nowadays though? It always either or. What I did is I got this jumper dress that I got from Primark in a size XL so that it fits well as a dress without having to hug any part of me and then went for a blush coat that looks so beautiful when paired with any other outfit, and topped it all with the over the knee boots from river island (will do a January sales haul soon) that are the most comfortable and practical shoes you’ll ever see. I also added a rose gold necklace which isn’t quite visible and the scarf over it which is quite light but cosy as well. I put on a waist belt to Synch in my waist because the dress without the coat needed a bit of form for this look.
The outfit altogether brought me so much joy and good mood because, that is one thing I must admit I get from my outfit choice.
I hope you loved this loo and tell me what are your thoughts on this. Also do you have snow where you are? What do you wear for such seasons?
