Simple Sophistication

Apologies! I know it’s been a while.

I had a last-minute leaving do for a friend at a cocktail bar and decided to wear this dress:

As usual, I looked at my stuffed closet and thought “I have nothing to wear!!” (Why do we do that?!, it’s like a default mechanism!). Then I told myself off and had a good look through my clothes and picked this dress out. I’ve had it for a while now but haven’t yet been able to wear it. I got it in the sales over Christmas and this is exactly the kind of event I wanted it for.

I can wear it plain if I want to go for a serious look (I’d pair it with a statement watch and colourful large clutch bag) or jazz it up with accessories and today I decided to get one of my minimalist heels out but I can’t wait until my hair has grown and I can wear it with a slicked back bun and killer courts!

It’s been difficult knowing what to do with my hair. I am still determined to wear as little extensions in as possible, but it is still at that awkward stage – to short to do anything with and too long to be short and cool. I accidentally made this style after washing it and thought it looked ok…an asymmetric puff of sorts. I’ll probably do this style for a while until I (hopefully) “accidentally” come across another – I hope it grows quick!

Off to get my Mojito!
