I’m Ready for the New Chapter

Tomorrow is the 1st of March, a day that’s pretty big on my calendar. It’s our one year anniversary since we got the keys to our first home, it’s also the month I’ll be turning 29, which means my last year under 30’s (no pressure, Andra, no pressure..)
And it’s also the beginning of Spring!
I love that it’s light outside when I wake up, I love driving to work with my sunglasses on, singing out loud. I love that our neighbourhood is full of flowers, neighbours outside with their dogs and my kittens laying in the sun like two mini lions. I just love this feeling, of all sunny and bright, kind of like a new chapter. And I love that I’m almost 30 and I’m totally rocking these cat shoes!
I’m suddenly feeling very refreshed, happy and positive. I know I usually am like that to begin with, but now it’s like the next level! Having 3 coffees a day might have to do something with this too. I have a lot to achieve in these 12 months.. after all, like Monica says in FriendsCompetition with myself is my favourite kind of competition! 
 
So yes, bring it on Year of 29, I’m ready for ya! Cheers to a (hopefully) very proud 30 year old Andra.

Let the outfit do the talking

We’re approaching the festive season, a period where we have at least one reason to dress up. Maybe it’s a work-do, a friends reunion, a Christmas party, fancy dinner or just the NYE, there’s no excuse! I love this time of year for so many reasons, and fashion is one of them. I tend to get overly busy these days, I rely way too much on my dry shampoo, forget what shaving means and let’s just say I’m lucky to be blonde because gosh I do tend to forget about my eyebrows! It’s comfortable don’t get me wrong, but it doesn’t feel that good. I love it when I get to play around with makeup and get to wear a sexy dress. It’s a similar feeling I have after I’ve been eating healthy for a while or I’ve been working out and I can see some results. I think we should all put some effort into our looks sometimes and now is the perfect occasion to do so.

This silky midi dress is a great example of a chic, yet very comfortable choice. I paired it with these pearled kitten heels. It’s quite a regular shirt cut dress, but because of its silky fabric and high leg slit, this piece could not be sexier. It’s also a great alternative for the ladies out there that don’t feel comfortable in a bodycon dress. And let’s face it, most sexy dresses out there tend to be very tight or very revealing.

Have you thought about what you’ll be wearing at your upcoming events? Let me know, and if you’re still after some ideas I’ve prepped a blog post all about it, coming up soon after this.
