STYLING NEUTRAL COLOURS
I've always loved earth tones and pretty much anything in nude shades. Now with the Military trend constantly incorporated in the fashion industry it's interesting to note that Khaki was inspired by the military and their uniforms. As an advocate of separate pieces due to their versatility, this beige khaki set right here which has the appearance of a Safari dress is actually a combination of a skater skirt styled here and a shirt. I actually purchased the blouse with the skater skirt in mind and my attraction to both pieces was the button detailing.
Ideally when styling nudes or neutral colours, I love loud bursts of colours or prints. Now while I opted for my nude Zara sandals in styling this nude set, another option would have been olive green booties, brown sandals or perhaps a burst of cameo print for an edgier look.
So Valentine's Day is tomorrow as we all know and the hype is crazy.
As always with our generation, holidays such as this are slowly losing their true meaning.
A day which was supposedly set aside for people to show love and appreciation has become a commercialized day for us to show our materialistic tendencies while growing the pockets of the many compaines out there. It's a shame though, like Christmas, Valentine’s Day is slowly turning into something else.
Now for all my single ladies, this is not a day to feel sad or pathetic.
For all my ladies with that special someone, take advantage of this day to appreciate those special people. However my two cents on this issue, it's not by force, it really isn’t a do or die affair.

And speaking of love, why stress ourselves chasing all these inconsequential things when Jesus Christ paid the ultimate price for us in one of the biggest acts of love in this world. In case you may be feeling a little unloved, never forget that God loves us (John 3:16), Jesus loves you.
Now for those of us looking for last minute V-day outfit inspiration, then this post is for you.
How will you be celebrating Valentine’s Day? What are your thoughts on the whole buzz with Valentine’s Day? How would you style this look differently?
