I'm all about being self-confident. I'm constantly trying my hardest to be confident in the way I look (an on-going battle with the treadmill), in my blog, in my work, in my relationships and just in general. I believe that most of our issues are to do with a lack of self-confidence.

Sometimes, all we need is a good dose of confidence instilled in us by someone who believes in us and some people just don't get that. There are some other people who have an incredible amount of self-confidence that sometimes seems to border on delusion and I really do wish I was just like that. Especially in this internet age where self-promotion is extremely pivotal to success (see: my constant updates on social media directing traffic to my blog). It's just become almost impossible to really do anything in a big way without being really proud of yourself and your work.

I get a good dose of self-confidence when I'm wearing a suit, especially when it's of the burgundy variety. This is the third burgundy suit in my closet but I absolutely love the texture. As you can see, it's not just another burgundy suit.

P.S The flats I was wearing in the instagram picture are from Russell and Bromley. Follow me on Instagram for constant updates, things tend to happen there first. (I told you, self-promotion!).

Have you started thinking about your Christmas shopping yet? I’ve put together a Christmas Room which will constantly be updated (access it in the top menu of the blog) with various gift suggestions at every price point. Start wrapping up your presents to go under the tree and filling those stockings! No need to run around like a headless turkey this time around (Yup,my jokes suck. Sue me).

    wow wow the suit is gorgeous and to be honest so are you, new follower here just found your blog through fb on bgki and am so happy i clicked on the link because you style is on point. And i know what you mean about self confidence in this era, but i find that people don’t brag about how successful they are it more how weird and out of the ordinary there life is.
