My yoga mantra

Fashion,Health,Outfit,29 April 2018

I overcame my fear by attending my first yoga class in a while this week. Last time I went I had to leave in the middle of the class because I started to feel nauseous. Hot yoga is the toughest form of exercise I know. You have to be and stay strong in every area. Mind and body. Tricky! My problem is usually the mind. To find concentration, peace and calmness in the middle of a hectic day with a to-do list that’s far from done with when I enter the hot and quiet room. It’s easy to get frustrated and irritated if the body doesn’t work with you how you want or expect it to. That frustration is what I find myself having to work on the most. “Stay calm, be kind to yourself and resist impulses” is my mantra I keep repeating. Easier said than done. This time, my practice went so well. I’m happy I went and a little break did me well.

Other than yoga, this week was full of fun events and most importantly, the pr agencies invited for pr days to see the new collections. Unfortunately, I had to prioritize school and my own projects this week, therefore I decided to pretend it’s just a regular week and resist the urge to mingle.

Invigorated

Feeling so clean and fresh in all white or simply just lighter looks! After searching for the perfect pair of culottes for years, I couldn’t wait to wear these white ones, although it started to snow just a few hours after snapping these pictures. Culottes are a bit tricky I think, but somehow, I find them playful and easy to wear in comparison to long wide trousers. Exposing the ankles always gives a more feminine and lighter look, but since it’s still cold I need to wear something underneath to keep me warm.

Even though this outfit is rather dressed up I wear these kinds of outfits quite often. I attend and co-host events almost every week and I want to look put together without being boring. A little black dress paired with heels would be too formal I think, therefore bringing a chunky knit into the look brings it down a notch.

Because I’m wearing white pants I didn’t want to wear black stockings underneath. So, instead I went for Norlyn Premium control stockings (shade Powder). Control stockings might sound a bit “unsexy”, but these are perfect for me and those of you who have standing jobs, like to wear heels or fly! I’ve noticed that flying makes my legs bloated and uncomfortable. Last time I flew I had to squat in the bathroom on a regular basis just because my legs were aching so badly! From now on, I will not enter an airplane without invigorating stockings. Not willing to be uncomfortable or worried and why should I, when I can wear these super sheer and unnoticeable stockings? I guess age doesn’t come alone haha ;).
