The different hats we wear

Pastel
The art of being so many different things to so many different people is exactly that, an art. It takes time to refine, it gets messy at times and at the end of it all, you’re still not sure if it’s quite right!
In my own life, of course, I am only one person but I fulfil a whole lot of different roles at any given time. This is the same for  everyone who participates in this thing called life. We are parents, sons, daughters, run households, run business, have bosses, have a social life, want to look after our health, be a great partner, be a great employee and still have a smile on our face at the end of it all. PHEW! It’s tiring, but I believe that our hats make us who we are, it’s just a matter of how we wear them!

Over the knee boot courage

boots

I’ve never been one for an over the knee boot. I don’t know if it’s my fear people thinking  I’ve walked straight from a scene of ‘Pretty Woman’, or my conservative Christian upbringing, but I’ve never been brave enough to try it…..till now. Once I summoned up the courage to parade myself down the street, Julia Roberts style, there was no stopping me. Now I can’t take them off! They actually go with everything and can be dressed up, or worn in a more casual way. I’m a convert. Can I get an Amen?

Here are three ways to wear the over the knee boot trend that will be everywhere this winter. If you aren’t seen in a pair this season it will be a ‘big mistake, big, HUGE’ (see what I did there?)

What to wear every day

ETI_4790

Everyday wear. It can be a tricky thing to conquer with all the activities we do in a day. Heels and pencil skirts can be impractical and flat shoes and ripped jeans are inappropriate for some occasions. I am lucky enough to own my own business, so I can set the dress code, but I still have to be comfortable enough to be with my kids, and look good enough to take a meeting. It’s a fine line but I have put together some tips to filling up your wardrobe with basics to nail it every time.

Ebb & Flow: a decline and increase, constant fluctuations.

Life has a way of bringing constant change. I do like the challenge of keeping up with it’s inconsistencies but I’m also honest and realistic that it’s hard to find the balance sometimes.

How to wear tomboy & sports luxe

_DSC4185.lowres

I’ve always been a tomboy. Ever since I was a kid, I thought it was completely acceptable to borrow my brothers clothes. I was always the girl on the BMX, climbing up a tree and playing all kinds of sports. I was one of the boys until my discovery of the eyelash curler and the realisation that there was a way to mix the sporty with the girlie.

The old faithful

Jules Suit 01BW

Here’s a little shoot I did last year with my good pal Zac Poor. I never got around to posting this outfit at the time, but that got me thinking. A white shirt and a black pant-suit is forever.
