Welcome to 'The outfit of the week' (OOTW).
But first the inspiration for this week...
I think we all strive to become the best we can be.
The more we get to know who we are and what we desire, we can make sure we are living our lives in alignment.
What is the best version of you? Are you living it?
Let's get to the outfit of this week!
The truth is I have had this dress for a while, but this is the first time I have worn it.
I love the style and fit, even the details on the waist. However it felt a bit plain for me. Maybe because it's black... I know. I am different to most women ;)
Anyway! I had a busy day with meetings and I wanted to be comfortable. The fabric on this dress is super stretchy.
I love fabrics that feel really comfortable. This is one of the first things I ask myself when buying clothes: Is this comfortable to wear?
Back to the dress: I loved the fact that it has different details including the little pearl detail on the side of the waist. I love the neckline and sleeves as well. So I added a statement necklace to add some interest to the V neckline.
I picked a pair of black shoes that have some extra detail at the back. And to finish a bright eyeliner!
For me wearing all black is something I do carefully. I am adding interest to the outfit through the accessories I wear, as the colour is too plain for me. Remember above all I am staying true to who I am. A bold dresser ;) I want my image to be in total alignment with who I am. To tell a real story about me.
I want to ask you today, are you sharing who you are with the world through your image, or are you feeling a disconnection there?
Remember clothes are so much more than pieces to cover your body. Have fun with how you dress and create an image that will have you standing tall and proud!
I am wearing: Dress: Lipsy, Shoes: Charles and Keith, Necklace: I have 2 and can't remember where I got them from.
Have an amazing week!
