These pants!!!

I went crazy a few weeks back and got myself some Irish green leggings type pants. At the store, they seem toned down enough hidden in a myriad of other colorful items. However once I got them home, I became worried. How can I wear Irish green pants? How will I style them?
I do not own anything Irish green. I like my greens to be olive and a little bit khaki, in other words I like my green subtle. So why on earth I went and got Irish green pants? Maybe because I wanted a change? Maybe because I was influenced? Whatever the reason, there I was stuck with green pants I had no idea how to wear.
I decided to google the pants to have an idea of how other people were wearing them. Soon enough I found two pictures of bloggers who rocked the pants with trench coats. They look good but I wanted more. I wrote a fave blogger who loves green about how to style the pants and she said that she was going to get back to me soon.
Anyway, I did not want to wait any longer because those pants are thick, hence suitable for colder weathers. And Spring is already here. So I went and wore the pants with a long shirt, trench coat and my military boots.

Knit hat - H&M
Scarf - gift from Mother in law
Shirt - Thrifted
Trench coat - Thrifted
Bag - Walmart
Pants - H&M
Boots - Shimamura

The pants were perfect for they were as comfy as sweat pants. I could move in them but I was still bothered by the brightness of the color. Maybe the beige green combo was not working as well as I thought it would.
Never wanting to give up, I wore the pants again to run some errands like this:

Blue scarf with beadings - gift from Mother in law
Grey cardigan - Ross
White tee - Walmart
Denim Jumper - Thrifted Don Don Down
Green pants - H&M
Shoes - Random shoe store in Ishikawacho

I loved how I styled these pants here. My jumper dress is so great even if it makes me look pregnant. Actually I am sure it is a maternity dress but I do not care. I think I maybe the only person on earth who purchases maternity dresses only when she is not pregnant. Anyway I felt good in this outfit; the dark blue of the denim dress toned down the green of the pants. They were barely noticeable I think. As I was going to drop my kid off at school, his teacher asked me if I had my colors done for I always know what colors suit me. I was flattered but had to answer no for I have not done it yet. Another mom at the school is doing everyone colors and I have to say that all the ladies who did it look better. Maybe I should jut forget my inhibitions and get styled. Why do I have to loose? At best, I will learn to stay away from pastels and use bright colors and at worst, she will just confirmed the colors I already favor.
Anyway, I am happy with my styling. I just wish I could find something other than my denim dress to match the pants....

Remember when I said that I was never going to change my style, because I like what I like (which is to be comfortable)?

Well I lied! My style is slowly changing. As my love life is in shambles at the moment ( I will get to that in a future post, I promise), I feel the need to go for a drastic change. I have contemplated the idea of cutting my hair (been there, done that!), dying it blond/ red or just forget this Hijabi thing all together. But as always, it is in the clothing department that I get to transform myself.

Truth be told, I am sure that even when things were perfectly normal at home, I would still go with a style change. The reason being that I am influenced at work. Women at my job are very simple and casual but they can turn the heat up from time to time. My favorite day is Friday when almost every one get to dress up in Traditional Attire. As someone who does not have many traditional attires, I am amazed at all the designs and styles out there. My eyes are feasting and …

When after work turns into a Fashion shoot

I went to my first "After work" the other day. For those who do not know what that is, "After work" is when colleagues get together for drinks or diner after work. Oups! I forgot to tell you! I started working for an international aid agency recently. I finally found myself a job that I also happen to like. Praise the Lord! I have been working for the last few months. It is challenging but I get to learn so many new things. And the best part are the people I get to work with particulalry the ladies. I enjoy them, every single one of them for they all have interesting personalities. They are also hilarious. I spend my days laughing. And I could not be more grateful to God for that!
Since two of my co workers were leaving (sad part of my job: people do not tend to work there for a long time), we decided to surprise them with an "After work"/ farewell party. We went to Marina Bay, which is a seaside hotel with a fabulous pool located in a hip area called …

All dressed up to say goodbye to 2017!

2017 is coming to an end.

What a whilrwind this year has been! Everything I knew and valued has been shattered. Everything I ever wanted came true but with a huge price. Yet, I am hoping that it was for the best.

I started doing adult things, some things I never thought I would do or ever want to do again. But so is life. I lost a lot but I gained a lot as well. I learned every single day about life in general, love, family, work ethics, myself. I am getting to know who I am and what I am capable of. I know I am strong, I am resilient. I also know I am older (found out two gray hairs this year) and not as pretty as I used to be. But that is alright. I now think that it is okay to be selfish, to put myself first, to love myself before anyone else. I …
