Last time I was here, I was turning 29 and sailing on the Mediterranean sea on a cargo ship and starting my career from scratch as a cadet.
Now, I’ll be turning 32, I’ve joined the cruise industry, recently promoted to 2nd officer and went on an all-female bridge officer cruise, became an IMO campaign ambassador, rebranded against the tide, lost a job, quit a job, became overwhelmed by anxiety, fell into depression, lost love, found love, suffered loss, let’s just say It’s just been a roller coaster of emotions. But guess what! I’m here to fill you in with the return of Penning my story, Every Friday where we will start from my 29th to date.
That doesn’t mean Fashion reviews won’t happen, I still love, fashion and if you are new to the blog, I hope to retire in fashion after my life at sea. Hence my tagline, Fashion is my soul but the sea stole my heart. This we shall hopefully do every Monday and a video review of either hauls or trends every fortnight. I know consistency is key, but when I’m back at sea, the story will be different.
Until then, since I’m currently in London due to travel restrictions, and we all know how confused the seasons can get. It’s meant to be summer yet it’s been pouring all week! This has made me take advantage of winter/autumn fashion.
Burgundy is a color I love. Something exquisite and rich about this color that makes me have all types of feels every time I don it. It was a no brainer when I spent some coins on these Salvatore boots with the ultimate goal of pairing them up with this skirt. I chose a black turtleneck to accentuate the burgundy color. The golden heel on the boot is my favorite.
I went for simple gold jewelry, to keep the focus on the outfit.
