Going To Bootcamp – A Yours Clothing Review

Sometimes life can present many challenges. I know I’m not the only one who can find things pretty tough sometimes. Work may be stressful, the love life could be in the toilet, money is sometimes tight… whatever the case may be you could feel like it’s just too much! Ever feel like you need to just set some goals and reevaluate the situation? We’ve all been there in some way, shape or form. I personally have been trying to give myself a bit of a kick up the bum. I’m 30 years old now and although life is pretty good things can always get better. Metaphorically speaking you could say I’m putting myself through bootcamp! I’m working on my health and fitness, career is going well and i’m doing what I can to be a better friend and daughter. Dressing for the occasion khaki camouflage was my style choice.

I like my clothing to represent my mood. As i’m going through my personal changes I figured why not pick a transitional outfit that is not only perfect for the season, but for my life also. Yours Clothing got in touch with me recently and asked if I’d like to select some items. I’m a jeans girl, always have been always will be! These khaki camouflage skinny jeans caught my eye when I had first seen them. Usually I wear some sort of plain coloured jean, the most adventurous being some sort of acid wash. Opting to have a little more colour in my wardrobe I picked these in size 24. I have to say the fit is really good, these are high waisted with plenty of stretch.

Walking is something I do a lot of and so, good shoes are required. I love a pair of Chelsea boots and figured these would make for a fun bootcamp style look. As much as I like to dress to my mood, it’s fun to be on trend too. For the past few years cold shoulder items have been hugely popular and they still are! With that being said we all need to be prepared for the colder weather and so I figured this sweater would be a nice addition to the outfit. I decided I wanted an oversized fit and so I picked this one in size 26/28. I should note it’s also available in Dusky Pink.

We all have those essential items that we take everywhere! A water bottle, wallet, phone charger, makeup etc. I like a bag that can fit it all in that is easy to wear. Black bags suit almost every outfit. A backpack is both comfortable and practical and is a great item for the autumn and winter months. This medium size one can fit quite a few items and has an internal compartment also, perfect for your keys!

It was fun putting this outfit together. For me it’s a lot more casual than my day to day style allows for but sometimes that’s needed. Of course I had to include a little femininity where possible so I have my pinup style eye makeup as usual, hoop earrings and a purple lipstick. I’m wearing the aptly named Berry Bossy shade 886 from Maybelline New York.

I think if I was actually being sent off to bootcamp I would be ready and dressed for the task! I find that with life’s changes and challenges the important thing is to keep an open mind, embrace the change and make the most of the situation. Hopefully in the next few weeks and months I’ll be reporting on some really positive things that are happening but for now I’m gonna buckle up and work hard. After all the best things are worth working hard for!

    I love the jumper but I am a huge fan of the cold shoulder, I am also looking for some chelsea boots, I saw some a few weeks back and ever since I have been wanting to go back and buy them x

    • Mayah says: 14th October 2017 6:09 pm

      It’s a really popular look at the moment. You can’t go wrong with Chelsea boots as they work all year round and for so many outfits.
