Another factor was my poor attitude and mindset these past few weeks, where it got to the point where I almost had a panic attack and found it hard to breathe, over a number of things that accumulated and made me feel so stressed, anxious and out of control. A lot of these things were trivial now in hindsight, but I completely lost the ability to see the bigger picture and muster the strength to face the challenges with confidence. So by doing a series of blog posts on a weekly basis, where I blog about the things I have felt happy about, could be a great personal exercise. It's important to never forget the things that bring joy to your life, no matter how silly or simple they are! I hope this series of posts can inspire you guys as well! :)
1. My new favourite colour: periwinkle.
Crochet top: c/o Lookbookstore (link here)
Periwinkle flutter shorts: c/o Steal her Look (link here currently sold out)
Scalloped satchel: ASOS
New nail polishes by Essie - currently obsessed with the periwinkle polish second from the left 'Bikini So Teeny'
So every weekly Happiness post will include something fashion-related, as this is a fashion blog and fashion genuinely does make me happy! Haha periwinkle is a colour that I have been obsessed with as of late, and it's proven to be a great topic of conversation when people observe my nails (in Essie's 'Bikini So Teeny') and are unsure of what shade you would call it.
This colour has been making me super happy this week and besides the periwinkle coat on my nails, I've acquired a number of periwinkle-coloured clothing items for my wardrobe.
One of them is these shorts gifted to me from Steal Her Look, aptly titled the 'flutter' shorts because of the cute ruffles at the hem, making it resemble more of a flirty mini skirt. The shade is so pretty and the shorts themselves are ultra comfy.
Periwinkle silk tee: Forever New
I also bought this 100% silk tee from Forever New, which is sort of two things to be happy about rolled in one- the luxuriously comfy feeling of silk against your skin and of course my new favourite colour! It was a bit pricey at $80 but I got a 20% discount making it $64...and to me it's a staple item that I can wear both on the weekends, and to work. I wore it over black jeggings to the doctor's, for a really, really comfy yet decent-looking ensemble.
2. My sickness.
3. Comedy shows.
Hope you guys enjoyed the first post of my weekly Happiness blog series!
