A Day In My Office Wear 1: Tribal Print Skirt

February 25, 2016

Those that have been blogging for years can attest that being the creative behind your blog is not easy. I have only been doing it for a couple of weeks, well just over 10 weeks and I can say that is has not been as a smooth ride as I thought it would be. Having thought provoking and engaging content comes with a lot of research, practice and time. One needs to have a vested interest in their own work, the readers will hopefully feel the passion and enjoy the output as much as you do. You cannot produce mediocre work and expect people to embrace it. This is a lesson to me. 
I have come to realize that we are judged on the delivery of our work, be it good or not. I remember during the conceptualization stage of thid blog where I asked myself how and what do I want Sindiso's Lifestyle Diary readers to categorize this blog? What words would they use to define it? Is it fashion, lifestyle, or what? I remember writing that I want it to be more than just pictures. It must tell a story with only words or pictures or a combination of the two.Never did I write that it is a fashion, food or lifestyle site. 
Whilst trying to come up with "big and very creative" content ideas, I thought why not do series posts on the things that I live everyday; hence the birth of "A day in my work office wear"  which is another series similar to "Some of the things I collect". In this way I can never run out of ideas on what to write about because this is what I enjoy and live on a daily. I can even use my previous work as a benchmark to my upcoming posts . I have been and still guilty of comparing my work to that of my peers forgetting that there can only be one Sindy. Hence with this series, I will be posting about the outfit I wore to work which stood out for me amongst all others for that week/month. I hope you welcome this series!
When I originally pulled this outfit it did not look like this. I remember a navy blue shirt and brown jacket. For some reason I thought let me play around with this peach jacket and see how it will look. I instantly fell inlove but the navy shirt was still too much so I swapped it for a long sleeved white shirt. Almost everyone I came across complimented the combination asked me about it; that is when I knew it was a winner. The skirt has Ndebele prints on it and it is a standout piece on its own.
