Perks of cleaning out your closet include finding old pieces that you can bring back to life! This kimono has been with me for years & while I typically wear it casual, I love the idea of dressing it up for work with a classic pencil skirt! Recreate this look through the items I’ve linked on the LTK app! Happy Tuesday!

Figured it was about time to take out my baby blue bag. 💙
You can have anything you want in life if you dress for it.
Mix and match. A scarf isn’t just a scarf. Different shapes and sizes can creat a very dramatic and stylish effect so easily. Here I styled the teal blue long gallop with the black and white small square as a top and the green twilly brings it all together. Clash of patterns can be very effective. The twilly is very versatile as a belt, scarf or headwear. Tap to see products. Photographer credit to the incredibly talented @bowetography.ie

"Keep your friends close, but your enemies closer". So what should you do about frenemies? Those people who sometimes support you or sometimes undermine you.⠀
Research shows that ambivalent relationship (frenemies) are literally unhealthier than negative relationships (enemies). Relationships with frenemies lead to higher rates of stress, depression and dissatisfaction. The main reason is due to the unpredictability of these people - one day they support you, the other they stab you in the back...can be very confusing right? At least you know your enemy is always against you. That's easy to work with.⠀
Most people usually try to server relationships with enemies and salvage the relationships with frenemies. However, evidence suggests we should do the opposite - cut out the frenemies and attempt to convert our enemies to our way of the thinking.⠀
The rationale is that an enemy converted to your side can be one of the biggest advocates of your cause. I concur with this because I have seen this play out so many times at work.⠀
I had a colleague (lets call him Femi) who was quite opposed to the new direction the boss wanted the team to follow. It was very new, very radical, very different from the way we had done things in the past. Over time we gradually started seeing the results of the new approach and Femi became the biggest advocate. He always told the story of how he was an unbeliever at first but has now seen the error of his ways. Through his story, he was able to get other unbelievers on board.⠀
What are your thoughts on this approach?⠀
