Something Old, Something New

Chapter 4 - Elevate Style

Hey guys, I am so happy to come back to you with a new blog post.  Just to update you all, I am still living in London.  My styling course is coming to an end soon, so now I must decide which directions my life will take next.   My new motto is to Live Elevated.  I made a vow to myself to elevate everything in my life - personal style, fashion, experiences, and overall quality of life.

I felt quite inspired the day I took these pictures so I took a few RISKS with my outfit and my hair - #ElevateIt.  My outfit wasn't too far fetched from my personal style (as you guys know it), but I did attempt laying my socks with sandals.  This trend is one that I hadn't been able to figure out, but I tried it...and it worked!!!  (In the photos below, you will see that I also wore my trainers as a alternate shoe option).

Now on to my hair.  I freed my 'fro.  I am normally reluctant to wear my hair out. But that is a thing of the past.  I am now more comfortable with my hair, and the many hands that seemed to be drawn to my hair.  lol.  My hair presents a boldness, and it is quickly becoming my favorite accessory.

So how do you elevate your personal style?? I advise you to take risk and step out of the box.  Be bold and confident in yourself, and the thoughts that may seem scary.  Allow yourself to be free and open.  I would even go as far as saying - Run away from the things you usually do.
