STYLE DIARY: A LOOK BACK AT MY STYLE IN 2018…

styling prints and patterns Happy New Year, Beauties!! Thank God, we’ve made it to 2019 in one piece. Such a blessing! Hope y’all had a lovely holiday with your families and love ones. I’m grateful for the time to relax and sort things out in my life. School is back on next week and I plan on using this week to declutter my closet, iron uniforms and hopefully, paint my kitchen which is really tired. 2018 just flew by, but I’m thankful for both the good and the bad. Lessons have been learnt, but that will be discussed in another post.

As first post of 2019, I thought I share my style diary from last year. Being a minimalist doesn’t mean one has to stick to neutral colours. Not saying it is a bad thing, but personally, colours and prints does something magical to my mood. -And I love it!! I don’t know what crazy style trends are going to surface this year, but you best believe all these pieces will be making a comeback this year too. I’ve been intoΒ graphic tees lately so you’ll see a lot here this year. Yesterday my son said, “Mum I want us to go on a holiday where I can swim this year.” So on that note, there’ll be no unnecessary shopping (help me God), but saving to bring my son’s wish to fruition. One goal in the 2019 bag. Ha!!

On that note, thank you for sticking with this blog.Β What’s your favourite? Have you shared your style diary on your blog? Alongside your thoughts on my style, please leave your blog link and I’ll pay you a visit as well.

Much Love!

    I love that you manage to keep a simple and neutral look but can easily incorporate pops of color. From the eye-catching blue to the moody black you are working it and I am just here eating popcorn and taking it all in!

    Holy wow, you had fun with all these outfits last year. You look great in blue! My favourite ones are the casual. I do love comfort and occasionally colour. Your Son request should be easy to pull off. Depending where you want to go. I can’t wait for your post on the good and bad lessons, you’ve learnt last year. Here is to you and your family having a fantastic year ahead Mavis : ) xo

    I love when you wear red. No denying you look beautiful in this colour. I also love the “feminist” tee and look. Hope 2019 will be magical for you and your family. And hopefully you’ll get to take that much needed break with swimming perks!

    Oh wow so cool to see all these looks together! It is hard to pick just one. Though I love the dress with the angled stripes, and the look with the distressed denim skirt and the gingham dress and black wrap dress look so good on you.

    Wow! You styled and were photographed wearing a lot of very attractive outfits in year 2018!
    Out of the 33 outfits you posted photos of here, my favourite five include the red dress in the centre of the second row, the white dress on the right side of the third row, the floral print and pool ball print skirts on the left and right sides of the fifth row, and the red blouse and stressed black pants on the left side of the last row. You looked fabulous in all 33 outfits. Best wishes for a wonderful year 2019!
