HOW I CHANGED THE WAY I APPROACH FASHION

I am no different to anyone else in the sense that I love hanging around in my trackies and hoodies at home, but there is no chance that you would ever see me leave the house wearing them. I know leather pants might not be as comfy but honestly, they are still pretty good. My leather jogger pants speak ultimate laid back comfort with the stylish factor as well. I’ve been obsessed with my leather jogger pants for so long now and they are not leaving my wardrobe anytime soon.

Leather is something I can try and say goodbye to but during the winter, I find myself wearing it every single day. Not only does it keep me extra warm and allows my skin to breathe, it will actually last in my wardrobe for a while. I recently watched a documentary called ‘The True Cost’ about fast fashion and how it is ruining the planet. I was fascinated how little I knew about the Fashion market being the second bigger killer of earth after oil mining. You don’t think about the clothes you wear and the effect they have on the environment.
All those $5 t-shirts and $15 jeans are ruining Earth one day at a time. Watching this documentary was a little bit of a reality check – as they always are!
I’m going to stick by the thoughts I have always had with fashion and stick to good quality items that will last in my wardrobe.
I don’t want to be wearing something a couple of times and then just throwing it out the next week! I want items that will last for years and years and not end up in the landfill emitting awful toxins into the atmosphere. I will always appreciate leather pieces and fashion, there’s no chance that that will change anytime soon. I can’t replace my leather with vegan leather as the polyurethane (which is really just plastic) is not good to wear on your body nor for the atmosphere. However, I will change my approach by putting more thought into the items I buy and how long they will actually last. The less I throw out, the less chemicals that will be emitted into the atmosphere when my clothing eventually reaches the tip. It’s the little things you do that count.

How does this make you feel? Who would have thought that your clothes had such a big impact on our Earth?

THE HOTTEST SHOE RIGHT NOW

Who would have thought that I would be obsessing over tassels on shoes… Just like fringing and studs – tassels are the new ‘IT’ thing and I’m really not complaining.

Heels are always questioned by everyone as so many say “I don’t get how you can wear them”, but fashion is pain and sometimes I have to accept that. Other times, I have Skin Shoes who solve all my comfort pains. ‘Calypso’ by Skin Shoes is set to drop in the next couple of months and it features a mini platform that takes away from the usual burning sensation on the ball of the foot. When I’m heading out, I always opt for a platform because it means I can dance that little bit longer but there are also times when I’m not in the mood for a platform. This is where the mini platform comes in and it’s an absolute saviour! There’s no doubt that your feet are going to hurt at some point but this mini platform is 100x better than a single sole!

I’m so excited for this shoe to drop in October and it will come in black, vanilla, lilac and turquoise – we will be set!

What do you think of the hottest shoe this season?

MY COUNTDOWN TO SPRING HAS BEGUN

What better way to start the countdown to Spring than with a fresh white & denim look!

I could be typical and talk about florals with spring but for the first spring in a long time – florals have faded away. It’s almost as though every brand takes the Spring season literally and tries to include florals in their range. For me, there’s nothing worse. I like to welcome the Spring season in a little differently…

I find myself wearing a lot of black lately so it’s great to freshen things up a little for Spring with an all white look. It’s always handy to find a pair of white ripped jeans for the Spring/Summer season as they can be useful all year round – same goes for every other piece here! These are all incredibly trans-seasonal pieces that I find I’ll wear all year long but together they combine to a beautiful Spring look.

How hot are these peep-toe booties as well? Dropping very soon to @skinshoes

What’s your favourite spring look?
