An evening stroll...

I look forward to going for walks so much, whether it is first thing in the morning, when I am alone with my thoughts, or in the evening with my partner when we watch the sailing boats bobbing along the lake. I love the way water changes constantly; sometimes it is placid and at other times it is tumultuous and full of raw power. I suppose in one sense, the ever changing nature of water reflects the transience of life itself.
Walks are an integral part of my day and they have become especially important to me lately because I work mainly alone and too much time staring at a computer screen gets to me after a while, so walks are my way of balancing my day out a little more. This simple outfit is what I wore one evening this week, for a stroll close to where we live. 

I love the classic design of a quilted black handbag with a chain handle, which I feel always adds a touch of elegance to an outfit. This bag was actually from Zara and I have used it so much recently, it just about fits all of my essentials in it, but I use a bigger bag during the day when I carry my laptop with me for work.

This black blazer with gold detail buttons is an item I wear practically every day lately; I am a big fan of sophisticated and minimal style and I think several good basics such as blazers, jeans and t-shirts are the staples of a great everyday wardrobe. 

Ripped jeans are not always formal enough for me to wear at work events, but I love to wear them on days when I can go for a more relaxed look and I think the darker wash denim makes them look a little more refined. I love these basic black sandals I got recently too, they are comfortable and easy to slip on. I prefer flat shoes for daily running around and heels to wear out to dinner or events. Even though I am tall, I find wearing heels still gives me a feeling of confidence. 

I wore this look with a white vest and my favourite Balmain sunglasses. There is a pretty garden near our home and there were so many flowers in bloom, bursting with colour and fragrance. Little moments like looking at flowers or watching a beautiful sunset can so often be forgotten amidst the pressure of day to day life, but it is important to take some time for yourself every day and to put your own needs first now and again.

The delicate and fleeting beauty of this rose served to remind me that time passes us by so quickly and that we should treasure each and every moment of it. 

After strolling through the garden we went to the lake to watch the sunset. The muted colours and tranquility of the reflections were the perfect conclusion to the day. I love the way water takes on a completely different character dependent on the weather.
