Tell me something… what’s the first thought that comes to your head when you are just cruising along and then you realise that people are staring at you (more than usual)? Thumbs up to you if you have a positive reaction to that. The first thing that usually pops into my mind is ‘oh my! something must be wrong! Maybe a little birdie bird pooped in my hair & I didn’t feel it coz of the size of the mane!’ Yep, little insecurities set in. But the truth is that 99.9% of time, there’s nothing wrong. People just appreciate the effort others invest into looking good.
Like on this day… man, I was working those stairs till a group of passers by stopped to stare. I shrank back into my shy shell. Fortunately for me & my blog I’d already taken enough great photos. Yep it happens to everyone 😉
I really loved this ensemble – quiet but packed with “can’t help but stop & stare” style . My favourite item was the neck piece which I got as birthday present from a friend with exceptional taste (all my friends have great taste :)). It just took this whole outfit to the next level! This is a perfect illustration of how jeans, paired up with the right items can have an incredibly sophisticated result!
It’s all about the image you want to project. My mission was to achieve a very classy, high end look using simple items. Note that I kept earings to a minimum with studs because I needed harmony with the necklace – not competition. Some sunnies, a bracelet and matching belt added something chic too. As for the orange / cream heels… MAJOR! But we all know nothing says sophistication quite like the stylish turban does.
Lately, I have been trying to re-condition my mind. Instead of thinking negatively when people stare, I should take it as a compliment; flick that hair back, Go Forth & Be Fabulous!
Love M, xoxo
