As part of my new routine (“new year, new me”… ugh), I have decided to go outside for walks once a day for at least 10-15 minutes. I don’t mean walk to work, or walk to the post office. I mean the kind of walks in the park where you do nothing, but walk. No rushing, or scuttling off in a hurry. Either in the morning or during lunch hour. Ten to fifteen minutes every day.
Working indoors, you get far too comfortable and when it’s cold, the last thing you want to do is venture outside, but that kind of attitude has made me become really lazy. Most often than not, after work I would end up ordering a pizza delivery instead of getting myself out to the do the food shop, or I’d prefer stay in rather than meet up with friends and family (“It’s too cold, I’m hibernating.”). It’s a small thing to other people but it’s a big deal to me, the fresh air will do me a whole lot of good in terms of mentally and physically – it will do wonders to your skin, beauty lovers!
I live about 2 minutes from a park and it’s not the best place in the world. In fact, it is known for being really dodgy (like most parks!) and I’ve seen spotted a few dubious characters, but it’s ok during broad daylight! I decided to go casual and wore a top, jeans and converse. My stripy top is actually a dark blue but it’s not showing up that well on screen but along with my wooly red hat (which kept falling off my head) and my lovely mustard yellow scarf, I’ve created an colour block outfit from the primary colours! I find myself reaching for yellow accessories this Winter! My mum knitted the scarf for me, so it’s a special piece for me and I love the colour of it!
These days, you don’t often see me in trainers or plimsolls but I did used to wear them a lot when I was college and University (aint nobody got time for heels!). My new pair of Converse
are burgundy, I decided to tone it down since my other Converse trainers are bright pink! I bought the pink pair ten years ago when I was still at college. They’re a bit dirty but have actually managed to keep in good shape considering how long I’ve had them for! It was probably time for a new pair. Niki
has gone through about ten pairs, all of which have ended up in shoe heaven with gross food stain, torn fabric or broken soles!
There seems to be a lot going on here in this outfit (stripes, colour block, black/gold accessories!) but I hope you guys like my casual attire!
