If it’s chilly out there, layering up with the right outerwear is essential.

As you will stay active most of the time ( Carry the bucket, open the oyster), a baggy puffer jacket is the last thing you want.

Instead, go for the hassle-free sleeveless jacket so you can move your arms without any constrict.

If you want to blend in with the crowd and have fun, don’t wear an elegant long lace dress as it will look super weird.

And if you are careless like me, you may also avoid any expensive fabric like silk, cashmere, suede as they are the fabric that needs to be dry-cleaned in case you get some stains on them.

Of course, a white dress can be another dangerous choice. Don’t forget those ketchup!

hey ladies, why not quickly do an affirmation and feel instantly better?

This new year, I’m trying not only to share fashion tips but come up with ways to instill body positivity in all women who are reading my articles – aka YOU!

Instead of just reading it, say it loud or murmur the quotes (if you are in public) to maximize the effect.

Ready? Here we go.

I love my body. She is my forever home and sanctuary.

Sassy isn’t a shape, it’s an attitude.

Work out because I love my body – not because I hate it.

I can love myself and change my body at the same time. No guilt about that.

It is completely normal to have tummy rolls. I come to realize that social media isn’t showing the reality… at all.

My happiest moments in life had nothing to do with the way my body looked.

I don’t have to be pretty like her, I can be pretty like …ME.

I AM perfect imperfection.

What are your thoughts on that? I hope that makes you feel better (as you deserved).

Please help me pass the body positivity message in your community. #womenhelpwomen
