Hello everyone! It feels like forever since I’ve taken outfit photos or written a proper chatty post. Well today’s the day that I not only apologize, but I’ll also be letting you know where I’m at. I feel like life is literally rushing past me despite the fact that I haven’t been up to anything major. Work’s hectic as always, with numerous 4AM starts over the last few and coming weeks. Needless to say, they’re freaking killing me, and I didn’t really feel like inflicting my absolute mushy lump of a brain on you all.
I’ve been more inspired than ever lately to up my career into something I want to do for the long haul. I’ve had some exciting things happen on that subject in the last week or so, so I’ll speak more about that in the coming few weeks if all goes to plan, which I’m crossing absolutely EVERYTHING that it does!
Anyway, back to the outfit. This is a go-to for me, my wardrobe essentially consists of a capsule of all monochrome now which is AWESOME. It’s what I like, suits me (fiery locks are hard to style with colour, know this in advance if you plan on doing it), and everything goes together in the most chic way. I don’t have to overthink how to style outfits now that I know everything matches, which is a relief on mornings where I stay in bed too long (AKA every damn day) and have 0.5 seconds to get dressed!
I think this outfit is a great balance of grunge and classic, which are my favourites. Still so obsessed with this coat, I can’t wait to style it different ways over the coming year. I have a day off from work today, so I plan to get as much work done as early as possible, then spend the afternoon listening to Babymetal (You can listen to their first album here, I promise it’s a good one) chilling with old reliable movies. I’m thinking vintage Linsday Lohan! What’re your plans for today? Hope everyone’s having a great week so far!
