Every now and then we all require a bit of change. A change of city, a change in weather, a change in your usual morning coffee or even a change of hairstyle. The joy is new, exciting and leaves you feeling refreshed and that is exactly what this post is all about. I now present to you a new website for MLC Diaries and with it an edgier, ready-to-experiment me!

I drifted from the usual feminine style of dressing to something a bit more bold one afternoon and I couldn’t be happier that I took the leap. Sometimes it is the basics that work better while dressing up than pieces that are over the top. While it is often painless to look put-together with a statement piece, I believe that styling completely simple elements and still making it stand out is a lot harder. This is where change comes in. Do one thing differently than you would usually do, be it a new hairdo or a different colour pallette, trust me, you’ll feel brand new!

That's exactly what I tried to achieve by teaming an olive blouse with simple black leggings. Tassels are all the rage right now and I love the subtle tassel tie up on the top. I threw on some brown accessories running along the same earthy tone to complete the look. A simple gold bracelet and my favourite cat-eye sunnies was I all I needed after! Pulling my hair into a slick ponytail is my new found love on bad hair days! I added a middle part so as to avoid the hair looking flat and was thrilled to see that it actually worked!

This outfit has exposed me to a new side of myself and a look I never thought I could pull off. And what better day to put this post up than with the launch of my new website! After almost two years, I felt like the blog needed a new look so here it is. I would love to receive your feedback on my work and the new site!

There are so many fresh ventures for the blog that will soon unfold. I can’t wait to see what little treasures this change has in store for me!
