As I’ve gotten older I’ve sort of find my own style now. I no longer go for what’s in fashion but instead things I like the look of. I sometimes go out of my comfort zone and buy something wild i would never wear. For years I’ve avoided dresses and skirts and retreated to my comfy leggings and jeans a little too tight that still do up.
This year I’ve really enjoyed buying clothes. I’ve tried thrift shopping a lot more and have been buying from new shops and treating myself. I’ve found a new love of joules and Laura ashley clothing. It’s soft, hard wearing and stylish. The patterns are a bit more sophisticated but timeless so there is no time stamp on whatever you buy there. I’ve experimented with shoes and brought my first pair of knee high boots at the expense of my poor feet. Who knew a high boot would hurt as much as high heels on a night out!
I’ve been experimenting with skirts and dresses having been so hot and I’ve signally found dresses and skirts I like that are both cosy and stylish. I have found George’s jeans and skirts to be the best sizing to my size with comfort. I’ve brought lots of new bags and accessories to my outfit because just because I have to be prepared as a mum doesn’t mean I can’t have a nice bag! But most of all I think I’ve found me. I’ve been wearing clothes I honestly love and don’t second guess myself in. Even if that does mean my wardrobe is full of my ever growing collection of navy striped tops.
