Do you ever walk down the street and see somebody so immaculately styled your jaw can’t help but drop open? Your intrigued by the way there outfit has so effortlessly been put together.

Style has always been a difficult one for me. I don’t know, I think growing up, I was so engrossed in it all, I got a little lost. There was a part of me that wanted to scream individuality, yet the other part of me that wanted to look right on trend. I studied my Elles and Vogues like a text book, yet now I wonder if it was all just a blurry dream.

I think sometimes, not just with clothes, you can try so hard, get too caught up in the whole affair that it takes the actual goodness out of it. I think things definatly change when you get older, you realise you have a whole different set of priority’s and spending money on clothes that can only be worn on one ‘set occasion’ is slightly ridiculous even by Carrie Bradshaw standards.

People always say to appreciate something; you have to miss it first. So I guess you could say my break from fashion should ultimately make me more inclined to jump right back in. The thing is I feel more relaxed now. I’m not saying I dress in a scruffy way, I’m just saying what I do wear, isn’t styled for hours on end, and I don’t seem to worry about what people think as much anymore.

I think that was one of my biggest problems, what I often thought looked great, would result in me either feeling unconfident later on in the day or I’d simply regret putting those ‘argyle’ trousers on.

Don’t get me wrong there will always be a place in my life for fashion, I love reading fashion magazines, I love browsing the net, just so I can analyse where fashion is these days. But I just think for me personally, I just can wear what I feel like wearing and be happy.


  1. gosh thats such a great way of looking at it! i think it's great that your comfortable with yourself as you are now :)

  2. Hi, I'm leaving a comment for you because you have a wonderfully beautiful blog. I've really enjoyed reading your posts and got really absorbed by them ! You have fabulous pictures too. Thanks for sharing them all and best wishes....

  3. I tagged you :)

  4. Great post! My views are exactly the same as yours.
    It's difficult for me, living in a hot country, to be fashionable. Simply because it's too hot to wear anything other than a tank top & skirt/shorts. I can't wait 'till winter when I can style my clothes more.
    Thanks for posting! :) x

  5. i dress for comfort more often than i dress for style. most mornings (especially during the mid of the school year) i jsut get up and pull on my jeans/sweats.

  6. I think that people look most stylish when they're not even trying. Fashion is supposed to be fun so if you take it too seriously, it takes the enjoyment out of it. The most fashionable thing is to just be yourself coz there's no one else like you, that's what I say!

  7. I don't have a good eye for putting things together. I wish I did!

    I love fashion mags and seeing what celebs are wearing, and I occasionally recreate things I like but most of the time I just throw things on and my comfy Uggs and I'm good to go!


  8. Just discovered your blog and I think it's lovely!
    It's hard to keep up with the tornado that is fashion, I think it's so much better to feel comfortable as you are :)
