Every now and then, we crave adventure. The urge to do something out of the ordinary. And in the same way, we have the tendency to equally thrive on the feeling of comfort. As I sit pondering over which one I prefer more, my mind is blank. I’d have to say I’m torn between the choices. This look for me is about expressing that dilemma.

When it comes to fashion, it’s no secret that I emphasize on comfort dressing. Because let’s face it, as much as we’d like to pretend that we stroll around in grand outfits all day, nothing brings more joy than to fall back on a pair of boyfriend jeans and sneakers. Those of you who follow me on Instagram know how obsessed I am with being comfortable with my style. The most important thing to remember though? Being comfortable is not synonymous to dressing boring. Anyone can pull off a dressy look, but relaxed fashion is where you can really express your true self is what I feel. And there's definitely adventure in that. There are risks to take and plenty of new things to experiment with, all in the realm of finding comfort as well.

When I ordered this Imagine T-shirt from The Souled Store, I was pretty sure how I wanted to style it. (Also, with my undying love for The Beatles and John Lennon, I couldn’t not get this one!) At home, I’m perpetually wandering around in a t-shirt that’s three sizes too big for me and with a current favourite playlist on repeat. With all this talk about comfort fashion, it got me thinking about heading for a party in a way that I’m most comfortable. So out came my pencil skirt and with it came the classic black stilettos! But instead of going with a typical crop top or dressy blouse, it was time to break the convention. With ‘Give Peace A Chance’ playing faintly in the background and while reminiscing about old times, I surely couldn’t forego my round sunnies and vintage denim jacket for this look!

The lovely people at The Souled Store also sent in a pair of extremely comfy boxers and a graphic notebook. You’ll be sure to find some super rad stuff on their online store!

The adventure of going with a pencil skirt and stilettos, a style not too common for me and to go back to the comfort of an oversized t-shirt and John Lennon music, turned out to be the perfect juxtaposition.
