WEARING: Zara Sweater, C/MEO Skirt, Aska booties, Quay Australia Sunnies & Prada Saffiano Leather Bag. I've started 2017 in a positive manner, I used this past week to break some old habits; my goal is to allow growth and to be a better version of myself. Needless to say, this wasn't easy but I am committed to breaking these habits, one at a time. I stand by the mantra "mind over matter", using willpower to do things you may not think you're capable of. Here is a rare occasion of me braving the cold without a jacket, to show this double dose of femininity & texture. In fashion whether you're you are a maximalist or a minimalist, my tip to you is to build your outfit around one striking element. An accessory, a colour, a cut or material - you can have more than one element but keep in mind that "less is more" and more is actually more. My striking element here is colour. I wanted to start the year with bright whites, white is the epitome of Summer but it works in Winter too. The entire outfit is feminine which is a divergence from my usual - surprising but nice. My 2017 is all about breaking habits and trying new things. I hope you all had a fantastic first week of the new year! Photos by Jeff Nicholls
