It’s Saturday night and I can’t believe I’m writing this but… I am staying in! You read right! I am staying in the comfort of my condo, on my couch, in my pyjamas, under a soft blanket and planning a chick flick kind of night! And, I couldn’t be happier about it :) I haven’t had an evening like this in ages and tonight I’m allowing myself this rare treat! I actually cancelled a night out with my best friend for this. But if one person can understand, it’s her! And I love her for it! I am almost never home in the evening. I am either working, at a social event or enjoying life with friends. I am not complaining and it is totally by choice that I have this hectic but oh so vibrant life! And, I wouldn’t have it any other way :) But tonight, I need to recharge my battery and have some quality alone time with my thoughts. We have a few things to figure out… Then, I’ll be ready to attack the world by storm on Monday :)
But before I do, let’s discuss an issue I think every woman encounters! Do you have those days when you tried everything in your wardrobe and nothing seems to fit well? A day when you feel uncomfortable in your own skin… You feel fat, bloated or just plain blah! I know I do! Ahhh… the joys of being a woman! When that happens, my go-to piece of clothing is the tunic! It’s a loose shirt that reaches below the hips and acts as a dress. Believe me ladies; it’s a life saviour! The loose fabric is perfect to conceal any bumps and lumps that you consider unsightly! Let’s be honest here, we all have imperfections that make us self-conscious. But wearing an outfit that makes us feel better is all it takes to bring our confidence back! This tunic in particular is very versatile. I find that the silky fabric gives it enough refinement to wear it in various ways. You can wear it down with pointy flats and a belt for an on-the-go style, with stilettos, a black blazer and a sleek bun for a sophisticated look or with stylish wedges for an urban vibe. I think you guessed which one I went for :) I paired it with the lace-up leather sandals to jazz it up! I have a thing for lace-ups, I know… It’s my touch of sexy to a simple piece :) I also went all out with the purse! Because you have to have fun when sporting a black tunic like this one! And, the bright yellow faux-crocodile clutch couldn’t be bolder! Remember girls, it is not what you wear that makes you assertive but how you rock it!
I hope you enjoyed your Saturday, whether it was in or out!
