Cold Shoulder

Cold Shoulder

Hey guys, It’s been a bit of a rough few weeks for me at work. Lots, and I mean lots of late nights and working weekends. It’s been a bittersweet experience purely because it’s so rewarding to work hard at something and see it all come together, but I can’t deny that it can get physically, mentally and even emotionally exhausting.

I don’t think varsity prepares you for the reality of the working life. In the working world people are constantly expecting so much of you unlike in varsity where as long as you meet the deadline that’s all that matters. But things are finally looking up, it’s like that rainbow starting to appear after a storm now that my project is about to go live. My first project! 🙂

I love this quote by Robert Collier, it perfectly describes my current outlook on life:

“Success is the sum of small efforts, repeated day in and day out.”

So with that said, I promise to now be more consistent with my blog, no more excuses.

About The Look

I mentioned before that I’m trying to get into making trends wearable for the workplace, so that’s what this look is all about. We all know the cold shoulder look is in and I found this low-key one from MRP. By low-key I mean it’s not too out there or revealing for work. its tricky wearing cut out pieces at work as it can get unprofessional, I believe the trick to achieving it is subtlety. I will admit though I’d rather wear this look as a casual Friday outfit.

xo, Pelo.

    As a newbie in the working environment I couldn’t have said it any better. Varsity does not in any way come close to the working world when coming to delivery. Working and progressing depends soo much more on you and the name/brand you build for yourself.

    I’ve read all your posts! So so relatable! Lol I’m not a fashiony person but i draw so much inspiration. You’re young, beautiful and evidently commited to CHASING AND GROWING yourself. That’s amazing man! If not, then i don’t know what is.

    Wishing you the very best with your already bright future!:)

      Absolutely, no one teaches you about the importance of branding when it comes to the workplace.

      And thank you so much Malebo 🙂 I’m glad you are enjoying it
