This is probably the longest I've gone without writing a single thing ever since I began blogging some 5-6 years ago.
When I get into random conversations with people and they mention how difficult it is to maintain a blog and find the time to write something everyday, I always tell them no - that it just takes getting used to.
Part of that is true and part of that is also very false as I'm slowly beginning to learn recently.
I've been doing this so long that I guess it's become part of my daily schedule. Point is: you absolutely need to set aside quite a bit of time to blog.
Which brings us to this ootd and an apology.

However, of all the months to choose, they chose May (now better known as hell month in our household :P). This was the thick of our renovation process and as you can well tell, I hardly found the time to blog anything, much less go anywhere else other than the hardware store and shoot an ootd.
So from the bottom of my heart, I'm sorry Maldita, nothing personal, just really no time.

Another thing I realized during this process is how difficult it can be to climb out of a rut. I pretty much lived with a pair of sneakers and espadrilles plus a couple of tshirts and shorts during construction because the rest of my clothes (and makeup) were stored in boxes.
When you're haggard and tired everyday for an extended period of time, it's difficult to snap out of it and just take a shower, dress up, apply some make-up and expect to feel pretty or presentable.
No, no, no. I felt as if I've had a thick layer of construction debris coat me and I'm still in the process of shedding those layers.
It takes a makeover! A head to toe overhaul similar to those seen in TV shows.
It took a trip to Browhaus + a hair and nail salon visit to give me that extra push I needed to dress up again.
And that's just the bare minimum. I think I need at least a week of not doing anything + a body scrub to feel totally normal again.
That is a big problem because I can't exactly put my life on hold any longer. I have events I need to go to and important meetings I need to attend.
This is where this tux dress comes in handy.
It was so easy. I didn't really have to think hard on how to style it. I just put it on, grabbed some heels, a sensible clutch (in this case my bespoke niqua clutch with my initials on it) and voila! Instant power dressing.
It's true what they say, nothing else can make you feel more powerful than a good suit!
