Year of the Dark Horse

Dark horse

Life happens and slowly but surely I find myself deleting all the bright and colourfuls on my Pintrest to make way for my new moody blues (actually black) for what I think is going to hang over me for the rest of the year.  I’m not a big conversationalist and my way of expression is mostly portrayed through what I wear and write.

It’s Friday afternoon, I’m stuck at work ploughing through Pintrest in search of inspiration because my shining light a.k.a fiancé is taking me on a shopping spree for my birthday!

It has been such an emotional struggle these days, I’m not my usual smiley self.  There have been at least 2 topics I could, and have tried to post in the last 2-3 weeks but it’s tough to be passionate enough to post anything while in this downer bubble.  I’m normally quite good at putting on a happy-brave face, trying to be strong for others, and refusing to be a wreck because I know the worst is yet to come (not ready to talk about yet), but this week and the last have been tough.  So for me today I saw the UPSIDE to this new mood and it translates to new clothes.  All I want to be wearing right now are colours conforming to the dark spectrum – black, navy, grey mixed with leathers, stripes and spots.  It will be slow transition so I will probably need some white and leopard thrown in for balance.  Sounds rather trendy but did I mention I live in sunny, beachy Australia where the uniform here is more bright, fluro, cotton candy anything and everything!  Plus my Chinese background sets my default fashion choice to light and bright, as anything dark pretty much symbolises doom…

Anyway enough talk about doom and gloom.  Here are my faves:

Black  tulip skirt Black & White Kim Leopard Pleat Skirt Zebra Stripe

Doesn’t look so dark after all, but as I said still in transition.

  • I rather see it as classic chic and not at all gloomy. #trèschic ! And as the words of Marley go; >>don’t worry, be happy. ‘Cause every little thing, is gonna be alright<< Plus I'm coming home on Thursday and we can go shopping, work out and bake stuff! Xxx
