Girls in pearls

Girls in pearls.
.
Saturday was a sad day as it was the memorial of a good friend who was such a special person.
.
The dress code was glam and colourful as the lunch party was to celebrate her life.
.
And so it was an orange and pearls day.
.
Everyone turned up wearing wonderfully bright and vibrant colours as she would have liked us to.
.
Life is so short and often so cruelly and abruptly ended, that we should make the most of every day that we are here.

.
Orange silk shirt from Zara 2017 season.
Versace-esque print pleated silk skirt from Zara Summer 2018 
Pearls from when I was 18 years old.
.
The collection of clothes in my eclectic wardrobe go back years and all get mixed and matched each season in brand new ways. .

It is very rewarding doing school talks to pre-teen and teen girls and boys to help them understand how to deal with the impact of social media on their everyday lives and especially how it affects their self-esteem and confidence. 
Also to understand how bullying can be silent and subtle but still devasting. 
How no girl should ever be one of the mean girls. 
Everyone is different, unique and differences of culture and ethnicity and personality should be embraced.
