Fluidity & Structure - this is the style direction I started to explore in 2014. At times, there was too much fluidity - and sometimes fluid got confused with volume. Through trial and error and YLF wise feedback, I figured out the level of fluid I enjoy wearing and how I enjoy it even more when combined with a touch of structure. This will be my style direction heading into 2015.
Today's outfit started with my fluid drape front black EF trousers. I paired the trousers with a fluid fit black/blue/purple/light grey blouse and then grounded all that fluidity with the structure of my trusty black leather blazer. I chose my black patent booties for footwear which I am thrilled to say are quite comfortable again thanks to my custom orthotics. And then for one more structured item and a pop of pretty colour, I'm wearing my citron handbag. To say I love this handbag is an understatement and I suspect you're going to get quite sick of seeing it! Red specs, swipe of lipstick and silver wedding band finish off the outfit.
I want to take this opportunity to extend a huge thank you to the YLF members and Angie in particular - 2014 was a year of adjustment for me. Changing jobs after being in my previous position for 16 years was much more difficult than I had bargained for. There was anxiety which every once in a while kicked my self esteem to the curb. Thanks to your wisdom, humour and patience, I seem to have come through the other side and am excited about what 2015 holds for me. I wish all of you a Happy New Year and hope your dreams come true in 2015 :)
