I feel like my style has evolved from what it once was. If I think back to the early days of my blog there were a lot of combos I’d be pretty cringed out at if I were to wear them now. I guess as you get older your style refines more but I also think a big part is played by the styles of the people you follow on social media. Let’s be honest, Instagram is where it’s all happening in terms of brand advertisement and outfit inspiration. My style definitely wouldn’t be where it is now if it wasn’t for some of the babes I follow on Instagram. And no, it’s not about copying someone’s look. It’s about taking inspiration from all the things you come across and making them into your own individual style.
I started a new series on the blog yesterday where I’m ‘stealing’ the style of some of my personal fashion icons. You can check that out here.
I’ve never been afraid of colour. In fact, I’d be inclined to say that colour is your bff. I’ve never been one of those girls who only wears neutrals – although I did go through a phase of wanting to have an all-monochrome wardrobe. That didn’t last for long…it’s actually a lot harder than I thought it would be to wear neutrals and only neutrals. A capsule wardrobe? Heck no, I’d never manage it. I guess I just don’t like feeling restricted when it comes to style. After all, isn’t fashion about freedom?
Sticking with the subject of neutrals for a minute…I think there always comes a time of year when I appreciate them way more. Isn’t that basically what autumn and winter are about? (Besides crunchy leaves, log-burning fires, and hot chocolates, of course.) Having said that, I can’t place my whole fashion focus on neutrals at this time of year. Every now and then, I need a splash of pink, a drop of blue, and a fluffy, sequinned ice cream appliqué to brighten up my days.
And no, my style isn’t always this funky, but you know what? Sometimes I just wanna wear polka dot socks with blue velvet shoes and that’s OK.
Sometimes I wanna be all biker boots and frowny faces on my blog and that’s OK too.
You know, it’s basically just the way the mood takes me on shooting day. And I for one love the freedom of fashion.
