    I grew up in a small town where my “style” was definitely not what every one else wore, and even now living in a city I sometimes feel like my style is outside the box. I am to stylish or under stylish. In my “old” age :p I have stopped caring and just own who I am. Sometimes it is trendy, sometimes it is definitely not, but it is me and I think that is what is important. To own who you are and that extends not just to your style, but also your body.
    Great post as always beauty and your pictures are incredible! I love your outfit and your style! 🙂 <3

      As they say about trends – they come and go, but style is forever. Sometimes I look back at what was cool, and think how lucky I was that I didn’t agree.
      Thank you girl! I took quite a few pics of this outfit. One of those rare occassions I really like what I’ve put together! xx

    Honestly, I still haven’t figured out what my style is, and tend to go to Instagram for inspiration because otherwise, I’m terrible at combining items and dressing correctly for my body type. However, I never feel the need to copy someone just because they’re considered cool or the price of their wardrobe enviable. I naturally gravitate towards a certain type of items and those are the ones I go for. The writing in this post is so elegant and you look beautiful in the photos! Thank you for sharing your thoughts xox

      Thank you Maria!! I understand what you mean. Sometimes people become obsessed with a particular ‘influencers’ look, so they naturally go out and buy what they wear. But I think it’s important to not just copy for the sake of it.
      I’ve always been curious as to how a stylist would dress me. Like would it be similar to what I would choose. xxx

    This was so interesting to me for many reasons. I have a real love hate relationship with Instagram, and was pondering over what I dislike about it. One of the reasons was that, in all honesty, I was bored stiff of scrolling through my feed and seeing countless selfies of countless outfits and nothing creative. Now, this could be because I have never been a follower or been influenced in the way of clothes. I like what I like. So I have been trying to find accounts that offer me more than just outfit posts. I also agree with you on the similarity of how everyone dresses, and if I see one more looking down pose holding the corner of the hair I think I might scream haha! It could be my age but i wan more depth than just cookie cutter humans. (sorry about the long reply) Great post xx

      I can’t agree on the creative front – purely because I don’t think I’m that creative and struggle to think how to stay interesting. But I really wish that the looks and outfits were more diverse! It just seems that so many big accounts, are all the same. If I had a huge following and could work with whoever I wanted, I would go out my way to try and be unique.
      Don’t ever apologise abut the long reply by the way, love reading them!! xxx
