I know how hard it is to remain fashionable in the workplace when the temperatures drop into the single digits and when the ground is covered in snow. I think the key is to master the art of layering – as briefly explained in my previous post ‘Layered up‘.
It is wise to invest in thick opaque tights that can be worn under your trousers for added warmth and that can also serve as a shield when wearing skirts during the colder months. A warm wool coat is also a fun way to add a polished finish to your look, a bit of color and personality but most of all to stay warm in style.

One awesome thing about my blogging journey is the constant discovery of fashion icons around the world, from whom I can draw inspiration in hopes of inspiring you all in return. For someone such as myself who does not keep up with what’s happenings on TV, Instagram definitely makes discovering new fashionable faces an easy task.
One thing you may not know about me is the fact that I don’t like to watch TV. I feel that it’s such a waste of time and I totally rather be on the computer for hours, multitasking. But on Thursdays, as soon as the clock hits 10 PM, (Do you know where your children are? ) I tune in to ABC to watch what I think is the best show on television. That’s definitely a subjective statement since that’s the only show I watch but you get my drift. Ha! I’m a Scandal addict.
If you’re an avid fashion magazine reader, you would have noticed that the gorgeous Kerry Washington has graced the cover of nearly every magazine lately and on every single one of these covers, she looks absolutely amazing. Here are two of my favorites:
1. Maxim magazine – Australia - July 2013
“It may be hard for an egg to turn into a bird: it would be a jolly sight harder for it to learn to fly while remaining an egg. We are like eggs at present. And you cannot go on indefinitely being just an ordinary, decent egg. We must be hatched or go bad.” - C. S. Lewis
Hello my loves!
My favorite seasons are hands down spring and summer (that’s expected from a Caribbean girl like me I suppose) but if there’s something that I look forward to when the temps get cooler, it’s the stylish booties and fabulous jackets we get to sashay around in.
“Even though you may want to move forward in your life, you may have one foot on the brakes. In order to be free, we must learn how to let go. Release the hurt. Release the fear. Refuse to entertain your old pain. The energy it takes to hang onto the past is holding you back from a new life. What is it you would let go of today?”
