Are you Fashion-Dreaming?

Seriously? Are you dreaming of getting all dressed up and leaving the house?

Ok ok, so there’s no denying that we have been enjoying the absence of the daily

question! While the recent weeks have seen us play around with a sleepwear meets loungewear integration, I’m finding that now as we hit day 20-odd in lockdown : I can’t wait to go somewhere.. anywhere.. I can’t wait to see people out and about. I can’t wait to get back to work. I can’t wait to get dressed up! Never again will i complain about not wanting to go anywhere (*Scouts honor!*)

While this is a reality we all face and we are no doubt going to be stronger and wiser individuals post this pandemic. For now, all we can do is dream (”Dreeeaaaam, dream, dream, dream, dream, dream, dream, dream” *excuse my little singalong tangent there*), dream about the first couple looks we will be vying for all the attention once this is over. From statement pieces and sparkles shoes to formalwear and a play with accessories. Here are some of the must-have fashion items for the post-lockdown-pre-winter vibes:

A bit of colour

Even for the OCD type (*raises hand*), we cannot wait to go out with a bright and beautiful, neon popping statement piece.

1. It’s on trend

2. After weeks of my neutral closet, I need this (Like the sun need the rain, no no... like the rain needs the grass.. no no.. like the grass needs the rain and the su... oh heck.. you know what I’m saying).

A fun shoulder

Yeah a little puff shoulder will take you a long way from lockdown loungewear to ‘i’ve been here all along’-style-ready. Add a frill if you want, or a print, or a little embellishment. Just have fun!

A cute heel

Yes, cute could mean your typical 3 inch heel or whatever height suits you. My very potentially real reality, is that my ability to do daily walkabouts in anything higher than a 3 inch heel post lockdown is going to be challenging to say the least. I’m talking 3-inch, block or wedge - that’s it.

After weeks in slippers and sneakers - I’m going to need to ease into that department. HOWEVER, trust me, i will still make it cute and it will be totally satisfying.
