If you said to 16y/o me, that I’d be spending a morning modelling, I would have laughed.
I say this, but meeting the Trinity Retail team was something else.
Trinity provide free, skilled, compassionate care and support to people with progressive life-limiting illnesses and those close to them.
Knowing this, when I was invited to try on some of their menswear to raise awareness of their online boutique, I couldn’t say no and now I’ve met the incredible team, I’m certainly intending on going back.
This is a completely different style of blog for today, but I’ve learned to take on new challenges and the moment I stepped inside their Head Office to leaving a few hours later, I was constantly smiling and this is the effect volunteering and the charity sector has on me.
Add in a few stylish items and I’m set for life…
I chose 2 outfits before turning up on Monday; both with a hint of my day to day style. Style…me? It just shows how helping others can boost your confidence.
The casual shirt acted like other shirts I already have in my wardrobe, with the stylish Diesel jeans complimenting my top half. I’m certainly a fan of a booty pair of jeans and these Diesel jeans certainly brought out my assets.
Then came the Hugo Boss Suede boots and boy they were a treat.
What do you think? Does ‘Outfit 1’ get a thumbs up?
I’m not a pouter, I’m not a model and I’m certainly not the stereotypical fashion blogger, but I felt at ease in these photos and was this down to Trinity? Yes, but the items looked and felt incredible. This is how I buy my clothing. Why wouldn’t you buy something you like or feel good in?
It’s this confidence ‘Outfit 2’ was decided. I’m in a lot of meetings these days, meaning smart wear is becoming more relevant in my styling.
Both pairs of shoes felt amazing with a space for comfort, with every item of clothing, providing the confidence clothing should bring.
Next, I put the staff under designer pressure, choosing a few more additions to my already chosen looks.
I’m not normally a go-to blazer fan, nor a vintage lover, but the next few items have changed my mind.
What do you think?
It what a fantastic morning with a group of fantastic individuals and thank you once again Trinity Retail for inviting me along and I look forward to seeing you again very shortly.
