My Style Post Evolution

This year I hope you’ve notice a change in my style posts, it was one of my goals for 2015 to make this section feel more editorial, glossy, and inspirational – so I’ve been trying new things, finding great locations, as well as try and inject my personality over into the pictures, instead of being a nervous wreck. I have to be honest it is something I still find difficult, I still get nervous posing, I’m over critical in editing, lots of photos don’t make the cut, and I still need a confidence boost to press publish so you guys can see. 

I mention on Instagram that my style posts have been on a journey this year, and thank you all for your lovely comments, it really has made me realised that I am on the right track. I think it has helped that I am doing them more regularly, something that you guys asked for and I hope that you’re enjoying seeing more of my style, it really has helped me step away from wearing jeans every day. I actually think it has been a while since jeans were the focus of a style post, and I’m quite proud that I keep pushing myself to try something new.

Lavender Dreams In A Floral Maxi

Lavender Dreams In A Floral Maxi

If smell-o-vision existed, I’d insist you turn it on, as you’d be able to smell the gorgeous aromas of lavender just by looking at these images. As soon as I saw this Fearne Cotton for Very maxi dress, I knew instantly that I wanted to shoot in a field of purple, and I’m so glad that Hitchin Lavender Farm is so close to me as it was such a fun afternoon prancing around in this gorgeous dress.

Day Tripping

Day Tripping

The summer has a lot of perks, the best of which has to be going on day trips, especially when that includes seeing lots of adorable animals, pretty gardens, and historical houses, so you can imagine my excitement at taking a day trip to Longleat as it literally has it all. I can’t believe this was my first visit, I do love an animal park, especially one that has rhinos and penguins, as I said a day trip to Longleat is one full on day.

A fun day out needs an equally fun outfit, which is why it was only fitting that this beauty of a fringed bag from Karen Millen had to come out to play, isn’t it so beautiful. I know the 70’s has been a key theme this summer but I’m really surprised by how I have become full-on obsessed, we’ve had off-the-shoulders tops, the denim pinafore, and the giant flares, so it felt right to try the denim midi, probably the only denim skirt style I didn’t own.

Floating Through Summer

Floating Through Summer

Have you ever bought an outfit that you loved in store and then instantly disliked as soon as you’ve got it out of the bag? This look, which I picked up in Primark, stood out in the store and then as soon as I tried it on together I just thought I looked fat. I was going to take them back, life got in the way, I forgot, and as you do I fell in love with the pieces again. It’s weird when that happens, I just chalk it down to the craziness of being a woman, we all have body confidence wobbles.

Also do you find that your mood can change the way you think about a look? My opinions can change with the weather, who I’m with, and with my mood whether I’m happy, sad or stressed. Last weekend was seriously fun as I got to spend time with my besties Jim and Sarah, who had fun photobombing their silly friend posing away in the name of fashion blogging, and I think the fact I was happy made me see this look in a new light.
