Welcome to 'The outfit of the week' (OOTW).
But first the inspiration for this week...
Do you know yourself? I mean, do you really, really know yourself?
Peel back the layers, look at your soul, find your essence and love every bit of you..because you are just perfect!
Then you can share who you are with the world in an authentic and joyful way!
Let's get to the outfit of this week!
Beige and black, such a classic combination. It gives the outfit an elegant feel.
I am doing it in a super casual way though. I had a day full of clients when I wore this.
I have had this top for ages and the truth is I don't wear it often at all. I like the idea of it but pastel colours don't look the best on me. So I needed to create a medium contrast level close to my face so it would work better.
By putting it together with black I make it work for me. The natural contrast in my face is medium (my face, eyes and hair contrast), and generally speaking you will look great in contrast levels that follow your natural complexion.
I have also been sun baking a bit so the beige pops out more at the moment ;)
I teamed it up with shoes that have a similar shade as the top, to create balance from bottom to top. And it stops it from looking too dark, as would be the case if I was wearing black shoes.
If I wanted to add a pop of colour, I could have done it by wearing shoes in a colour, or with a handbag.
As I have had this top in my wardrobe for a while, it actually felt like shopping inside my own wardrobe. Putting outfits together in a way you have never done before can be as exciting as buying something new. Have you cleaned out your wardrobe lately? Have you allocated a few hours to sort it out and look at different possibilities to mix and match what you already own?
It's a great time of the year to organise and let go of things that don't make you feel awesome. Make sure you finish this year by clearing the old energy of your wardrobe. You will be surprised at how light and happy you will feel ;)
Are you ready to make some changes to the way you see yourself and how you are showing up in the world?
You know that having a strong and positive self-image will affect EVERYTHING you do, your levels of success and your enjoyment of life! There is no better time to do something just for you, the end of the year is fast approaching!
HIT COMMENT and let's start a conversation about how I can help you start showing up fully in life and how this new level of confidence will lead to great success.
I would love to connect with you.
Have an amazing week!
