How to rock distressed skinnies

Distrissed skinnies are great for summer as they are edgy, cool, and nice to pair with kicks.

Distressed jeans go great with statement t-shirts which is why I’ve made this outfit.

Sweat Shirts are Versatile

Sweat shirts are easy to wear, chilled items that are great when you just want to hang out and relax.

This black sweat shirt is great because it’s mixed with khaki jeans which really make the outfit look cool. Pairing it with a beanie adds an edgy vibe and a choker is optional to step up the outfit.

Reasons to wear a maroon dress

Winter is all about dark, luscious colors that burst in the cold, stark days.

It is great because it is feminine, bold, and very sophisticated.

The style of the dress is classy with a high-neck and it’s flared out bottom. This dress is perfect to be paired with jackets, blazers a pullover.

Since it is a simple style this dress is easy to dress up or down for day or night.

Add a plain clutch and black heels and you are set to go.

How to pull off lace shorts

Lace shorts are sometimes difficult to wear because they can be quite formal, although they can be dressed down. I’m going to speak about dressing up lace shorts in this post.

So in the outfit below these navy blue lace shorts work well with this halter neck black top because it is lacy and delicate paired with the simplistic hatlter top.

The nude heels are perfect as they are feminine and go with everything. The outfit is soft and sophisticated. 7a581d3a545a4509cedb60b778a1d824

Awards

Sisterhood of the World Bloggers Award

screen-shot-2015-05-24-at-10-56-50

I have been so lucky to be nominated for the Sisterhood of the World Bloggers Award by the amazing Julia.

This award is given to those who are great female bloggers who inspire others.

The way the nomination works is:

  • Thank the giver and link their blog to your post.
  • Answer the 10 questions given to you.
  • Pass the award on to 7 other bloggers of their choice and let them know that they have been nominated.
  • Include the logo of the award in a post or on your blog
Here is my answer to Julia’s question: What do you love the most?

I would have to say that the things I love the most is when people respond with kindness to me.ย These past few days have been an incredible journey for me because I have started to surround myself with loving, kind, people who honestly embrace me for who I am. I am extremely grateful for those who are there for me. I have been given a second chance at life by moving out and by living in a different environment. I took some advice I received on my blog earlier saying I should dissociate myself from those who hurt me, and I have done just that.

I would like to thank all the amazing bloggers who have supported my blog. Everyone who has had something to say has really shaped my life and made me appreciate all the kindness those have to offer.

The things that I also love the most is helping people. I have a calling to work in a relief organisation/ human rights organisation, and that is why I am studying gender studies as I want to try make a difference in the world, and help those who cannot help themselves.

I have realised that after I have started surrounding myself with positivity my life has become more positive. It was hard for me to help myself because I realised sometimes the way forward is not the easiest one. I also realized when you lead on others, surprising, amazing things can happen, and I am grateful for all the motivation I have received from fellow bloggers as well as other people in my life who have been there for me.
