I was going to say okay Monday let’s do this, but it’s Thursday ... sooo well, still feels like a Monday! ♻️ one of my current favorite thrifted shoes, cause comfy as hell and exactly the right amount of old school for my taste.
Today’s outfit is inspired by and dedicated to the single mum, first daughter, divorcee, widow, to the woman playing the role of a man in her family whether by choice or circumstance.
To the woman who has to be ‘the son’ her parents never had. To the woman who has to work extra and overtime at work just to prove she is more than a pretty face.
To the woman who has to worry about fixing the generator, the leak on the roof, the car battery and still have her hair done, nails polished so she doesn’t look like her world is falling apart.
To the woman paying tuition for siblings, cousins, spiritual children. To the woman paying utility bills and clearing debts for uncles and aunties that have never given her a dime.
To the woman giving jobs to and funding the entrepreneurial skills of nieces and nephews that may or may not be there for her tomorrow.
To the woman whose husband is not in the best place financially, emotionally or physically and so she’s forced to be strong enough for two, to fill the gap but do it in a way that does not take respect of his children or society away from him.
You are strong, you are beautiful, you are ENOUGH❤️❤️❤️
Outfit- Male suit.

we're in family holiday mode so I'm spending minimal time here and only properly posting my outfit from Leo's Christening.
I had something else planned but it looked and felt completely flat and pale so I put this together, and felt great 😊
It's one of those with pieces I'd never thought would work together but they did. Wearing my #wowcolours
always give me a little #confidence
ps- apart from the necklace (hand me down) the whole outfit is thrifted 🤙😉💃

One of my favorite things to find, a Dutch scouting uniform. Love all the details and patches! 🧙🏻♂️
This outfit was so fun to wear, it had to go up on the blog with a lengthy ramble about whether choosing clothes that remind you of the yesteryear of ladies is, or is not, feminist. Kinda. I’m still working through my thoughts on this one but I can tell you that I got a lot of Being A Boss done in this dress. Can’t wait to wear it layered up through winter and beyond!
One more Day and I can put One Year under my “Gucci” Belt
Happy Earth Day! It was always my favorite day in school, because we got to talk about my cherished trees, animals and the green world. We got to go outside and plant seeds, it always made me happy. I still love this green earth. It provides for us in so many ways from material benefits to spiritual and emotional restoration. For that reason, throughout my life, I have tried to make an effort to live sustainably as I can. I have not always succeeded as much as I wanted to. Pressures of life and financial hardships make it more challenging for people to make choices in their diet and lifestyle. But I believe that no matter who you are you can make small choices. I thrift and buy vintage. Not only for the style, but for the chance to treat what we have responsibly and thoughtfully. Almost 90% of my closet is used clothing. Everything I have on here is vintage. What I wore today was thrifted vintage. It's the easiest way to help out with our consumption levels and our pollution issues. Buy used, reduce what you buy, pass on that you don't wear. I know this was long thank you for reading if you did.
