When I first started my blog at the age of seventeen, my style was very simple - black, grey and muted tones were my go-to colours, and I often shied away from statement pieces. The idea of bright colours, patterns and experimenting with trends really appealed to me, so I dabbled occasionally, but as I wasn't the most confident person, I really didn't want to stand out from the crowd. I wasn't happy with my body shape or general appearance, so the last thing I wanted was to draw unnecessary attention to myself with eye-catching outfits.
Confidence is something I often talk about - I feel that there's a clear correlation between my age and self esteem. As I get older and become more confident, I'm making bolder fashion choices - what I wear now reflects my personality and favourite things... hello William Morris prints and pops of colour! Take this outfit, clashing prints aren't everyone's cup of tea, but I couldn't resist doubling up on florals, and tryin' out a pair of jeans different from my favoured high waisted variety. Sometimes I long for a really strong, signature style and a 'capsule wardrobe', but right now I'm still finding my feet with my personal style, and I'm happy that I finally have the confidence to experiment with clothes and wear things that truly make me smile.
