“Leather details & bold accessories”

“I am in competition with no one. I run my own race. I have no desire to be better than anyone in any way, shape or form. I just aim to improve, to be better than I was before. That’s me and I’m free.” – Unknown

Hi guys,

I’m happy to be back with a new post – the last for this month. Summer’s end is fast approaching so I’m on a mission to enjoy what’s left of it in style.

I wore this outfit to dinner yesterday which was at a cozy Italian restaurant in Manhattan. The food was great and it’s always fun to be in the company of my loved ones.

The outfit is pretty simple but by accessorizing with statement pieces, I spiced up the look a bit more. Statement earrings (featured on my post yesterday) and necklaces along with plated belts and other bold accessories don’t only amp up casual attires but also help to transition from day to night when changing isn’t an option. I’ve particularly been lusting over these statement earrings which I posted on my Instagram and I cannot wait til they’re delivered at my doorstep.

PS: My curls were achieved using the Remington curling wand which I previously reviewed. Click here to read my opinions about it. Highly recommended!

Feel free to comment below and share your thoughts on this look. I appreciate you all for stopping by and as the quote above so eloquently suggests, be unapologetically you and compete with no one. You should simply strive to be a better version of who you were yesterday.

Chin up,

Edwina
