hello august…it is my birthday month and although i dont really celebrate, i am definitely looking forward to a lot of great things – it is another year in my life and super grateful for it of course. will do a more personal post about le birthday soon. for now, here is a brand new look, for a brand new month.
my personal style has always been more inclined to comfort. i am not one of those who will slave to wear skimpy outfits to look sexy (while uncomfortably pushing everything in place) or walk around in sky high heels (while holding for dear life coz you are scared to lose your balance). i always try to be in between and mix it up without compromising my comfort. after all, confidence will always be key and you wont get there if you are not comfortable.
when the trend “sleepwear” and “activewear” came about, i was crazy happy. im sure it raised a few eyebrows when it was first introduced but given that so many have embraced it in the past couple of seasons, i am pretty sure it will one of those trends that will last. after all, you will always have a great pair of PJs and sneakers in your closet.
for today though, i figured a good slipdress would be a great choice (the one you wear underneath your actual dress or the silky ones you probably wear in bed – i got my inspiration from my mama coz she used to wear them for bed when i was a kid). obviously i dont want to walk around in it out in public coz you know i live in the middle east, so i threw on an oversized silk coat to tone down the look. wore my current favourite sneakers (i seriously cannot have enough white sneakers) and voila. i am good to go. it is the perfect errand or weekend outfit and well, i love the fact that people think you literally rolled out of bed.
in my case though, its true. ha!
so tell me, do you dare walk out in public in your PJs or slipdress?!
