I’m far too excited about the fact that it’s now bright enough to shoot my outfits with the lovely Christina in the evenings after work. It’s my very favourite part of blogging. I get so excited about putting outfits together & lately, I’ve really rediscovered a love for styling. Of course, I always have an interest in fashion, in general, but as of late I’ve begun to put even more thought into my looks. I’ve started to get very fussy. I’m now focusing my outfits around one or two good, investment pieces and I’m so happy that these Aritzia Leather Leggings are now part of my wardrobe. The fit is just amazing & I’ve been able to style so many outfits around them. For work, I’m wearing a lot of all black looks (love this knit jumper) but then adding a little colour through blazers & boots.
“The harder you work…the luckier you get.”
As usual, things have been crazy busy. I don’t think it will ever be any other way while living in New York. I won’t lie, sometimes it can all get a little too crazy and I can start to feel very overwhelmed & just think that I’m never going to get caught-up on emails, tick everything off my to-do list, make enough time to see friends, see more of New York, exercise more…the list goes on & on. But what I keep trying to remind myself is that genuine hard work never goes unnoticed and always, always pays off in the end. My very favourite quote is, ‘The harder you work…the luckier you get’, and it’s a quote which couldn’t be more true. Things don’t ever just happen. I do believe in fate, but I also believe that you make your own luck. The only way to predict the future is to create it and if you want something bad enough, hard work will get you there. So whether you’re studying for exams, working on a new project or you’re just having one of those days – hopefully this quote will help & motivate you too.
Lots of new outfits to come over the next few weeks!
