#OOTD – Real Street Style + LINKUP

Happy Tuesday friends!

I’m currently writing this with an incredibly sore throat and a cold that just won’t quit. This damn thing has been hitting me on and off for the past 5 days only sticking around for a few hours or so. I’ve decided, i’m not going to let this get me down and get this post out for you guys regardless of how shiz I am currently feeling. I wanted to dress up and this look became more street style then I could of imagined. I am in love with this look.

Plus I cannot wait to show you this look from a few days ago.

This look was inspired from a fellow blogger/stylist that I think is just amazing. If you don’t follow Agnes from Wardrobe Fever – you are missing out! Her style is so on point yet unique to her personality as well. I bought this belt from Vinnies because of her belt-inspired looks. Thanks Agnes for the inspiration!

Lately in life I’ve been questioning happiness and how much of a state of mind it really is. As some of you may be aware I have had some personal issues and a decline in hours at work. But through it all I’ve managed to stay as positive as possible. I think what’s important to always remember through a negative period (because that’s all it is – a period!) is you’ll be able to get through the rain and be back to the sunshine.

I realised was to be grateful and happy for the little things – like enough money to feed myself (and occasionally buy Pokemon Cards🙊) and the fact that I do have a job and a second job on call to fall back on. I have some one who I love and loves me back and I have a pet who needs me. In the bigger scheme of things – I am a pretty lucky person and shouldn’t be letting my whole world tumble due to a few mishaps that I know can be solved. 

I can’t believe everything but the sunnies (which are newly prescribed btw!) are thrifted! I felt like a rockstar with some serious street style in this get-up and it was all affordable as fuck!

I tried another trend atm which was sheer socks. I don’t have any fishnet ones, but will invest as I think they are pretty fly. I don’t know if i’ll try the sheer socks again, but I did think they added a little something to the look.

I understand that it’s not always easy to open up about these things – but I am always here if you need me internet fam. When I took these photos, I wasn’t in the the best mood. But after getting out in the sunshine and feeling grateful for a lot of things (including you guys!) I got this smile at the very end of the 30 minute shoot. 🙂
