How to Look Chic
I love weekends but sometimes I prefer the solitude of weekdays (I work independently). I'm grateful for my husband to take over the entertaining and socializing side of life when I'm stuck with endless readings and research. He has organized a little steamboat dinner tonight at our house with some friends, I can't wait!
Did I tell you that I've recently done another wardrobe edit? I like to do them whenever I feel like my life is getting cluttered. Even if it has nothing to do with clothes. I like getting rid of too many - I find that peaceful and therapeutic. Though that doesn't mean I don't struggle with parting with stuff!
Anyhow, in re-organizing my wardrobe, I've figured since I've moved to a tropical country, I don't need all my jackets and boots - it's hot all year round. Some of my favourite dresses are made with materials too thick - so I can only wear them in the evenings.
My lifestyle has changed too - it is different to the ones in Australia and the United States. There is a greater need for casual outfits in hot and humid countries, but then I didn't want to compromise on elegance, so I started to pay attention on how to do chic.
Many people use that word to describe stylish, in all sorts of interpretations.
Personally, I interpret chic as to be casually elegant, but with a bit of an attitude. You can read about my latest addition on elegantwoman here: How to look Chic.
