You might’ve noticed in my last few posts that I’ve been doing something a little different. Usually, every post will have a title or a purpose of some sort. Showcasing clothes and how I style them is one thing. But having the words to go with the visual content is another. And that’s where I’ve struggled endlessly for the last few months. Real talk: I find it kind of impossible to churn out written content that’s always relevant, relatable or shareable. If you can manage to pull it off, then I tip my hat to you. Sometimes, the words of “wisdom” or whatever just aren’t there.
SHOP THE LOOK (or similar)
So for the next while, I’m stripping it back and just talking about the clothes in the photos. I say just as if it’s a bad thing, don’t worry, I know that it’s not. It’s kind of the point of a blog, right? To express ourselves however we choose, and discuss topics that mean something to us. I’m not one to go super crazy for material goods. But clothes are a form of self-expression for me, and I really value them for that. They allow me to be myself without a shred of self-doubt or ambiguity, and I really love that. Self-expression is incredibly important, and I’m so happy that my confidence has grown enough in order to allow me to do that through clothes.
French Mime With A Dash Of Emo Kid
This outfit is… I’d say a cross between a French mime (blame the beret) and the emo silhouette of my teenage dreams. And I fricking dig it. It’s versatile, easy to wear and so simple to put together with staple pieces in anyone’s wardrobe. Once you’ve got a stripy tee and skinny jeans, you’re pretty much sorted. The mesh t-shirt and Converse put my typical emo twist on the look, alongside the red eye make-up that I couldn’t be more obsessed with. You can thank Kat Von D for that one! It was meant to be a lightning bolt, but maybe it will in the future with more practice…
