30 chic days: day 7

At the end of my 1st week, following Fiona Ferris's blog: howtobechic.com. Fiona has invited people to join onto her 30 days of chic, to commemorate the launch of her new booK; 30 Chic Days.

How have I fared? I am certainly feeling & looking more chic. And I have had some realisations too: a lot of my life is not chic. My home is messy 2 days a week what with tiredness & work & errands, so I want to change that. My diet: I have sincerely worked at being more organised & tried not to snack. Most days I did this, other days....I think that I may have had some snack amnesia. I don't eat enough fruit nor salads. I shall keep working on it & keep trying out this & that for more improvement...... chic improvement. I wear too much black. So I shall gradually work in, over a period of time, some navy. Navy & blues suit me. On the plus side, I have been dressing more chicly. And, working at being chic: it's fun!!! Another realisation, was that dressing chic......it's all in the little details. Little things like rolling my cardi sleeves back, just enough to show the colour of the tee or jumper underneath. I also have been walking very briskly, with longer strides, & just generally moving about more. I also realised that I am too reclusive so I have deliberately been getting out & about more. I haven't read much, due to being so busy.

Today I was doing readings, selling posters & kawakawa balms & oils, smudge sticks, & some really chic clothes that my youngest daughter was throwing out. At a market in a seaside village in West Auckland, Little Huia. I did some yoga poses, breathing & meditation before I left, as well as having a smoothie with spirulina, & an oil made up of 3 types of omegas. It was too rich, & I had a bad reaction with a headache & nausea, which lasted all day. So eating chic went out the window for the whole day.

I wore black jeggings; black leather-look, ankle boots like Converse, black cardi, red tee, & crystal necklaces & bracelets....looking the part of a stall holder. It was not the place to be overdressed so I hope that I wasn't. But I did want to look chic. I saw 1 woman there who was chic. In her late 40s, she oozed casual chic, yet somewhat elegant. And I thought how ironic that I was selling my chic daughter's clothes. And I wondered who to give my expensive spirulina & oil to.

I read some of Tish Jett's facebook & website. Tish is the author of Forever Chic, & I was pleased to see that she had some clothes combos with navy.

And whenever I wasn't selling, which was most of the time....I thought about ways to be more chic.

  1. I love chic sightings and often note down details of the person that I noticed, so that I can be inspired later on. I have them all in one Word document and when I read through it there is a thread of what I admire and I know it is what I want more of in my life.

    I'm sure you were very chic at the market!
