Cool Culture

"Pure, intense emotions. It's not about design. It's about feelings."
- Alber Elbaz 

Life can be hard sometimes. Things are not always how you'd hope they'd be, they don't always turn out the way you planned. But on other days things can feel so rosy and so good, it's like you can't believe how blessed you are. Right now I'm stuck in the middle, things are not the worst but the could be better... I'm still on my journey to achieving my goals, it's been hard and I've faced many a stumbling block... but I've kept going, because I know it'll all be worth it in the end. This is the mentality I'm taking for all aspects of my life; work, family, love and of course the blog. 

Whilst I may not be as 'big' as many other bloggers out there, I feel truly blessed and happy to be able to do this, run my own little fashion blog. I've always been into fashion, I've always had my own distinctive style; so sometimes when other things may feel out of my control, when I'm not at my happiest, I remember that there is at least one thing I can control, one thing that I can go to to express myself; get my creative juices flowing; my blog. 

I love playing dress up; putting together colour popping outfits, sexy little numbers and casual but cool looks. I wake up some mornings feeling like dressing a bit edgy, other days I want to dress cool, but as you know most of the time I like to dress somewhat sexy. With this outfit I couldn't quite make up my mind, so I thought why not just combine the three and throw a bit of culture into the mix. So, that's exactly what I done. 

I wore these trousers a couple of weeks ago with the matching shirt, from Zara (as my friends and family tend to believe I only wear my purchases a couple of times, I decided from now on I'm going to wear things as much as possible and show the different ways they can be styled). I dumped the matching blouse and went for a red crop top from Boohoo (which you may have spotted I wore recently too), a longline denim jacket from Misspap and a denim clutch bag from Forever 21. I wrapped my denim look scarf around my head, put on cool red flat sandals from Zara and finished off the look with these funky but cool sunglasses from Pretty Little Thing. 

Yes life can be hard, but one thing I've learnt is that it won't always be and there are things that we can do to make things better for ourselves, even if just a little bit better. We are in control of our own happiness, no one else. We decide what makes and breaks us, by our actions and attitude. I decided a while ago to let go of what is not making me happy, accept what I can not control and focus on what uplifts my mood, my spirit, my happiness. A positive attitude, determination, hard work and a good outfit can take you further than you ever thought possible.
