Defining your style is a weird one isn’t it? Some people fit nicely into a box, ‘Scandi- chic’ or distinctly ‘boho’ but me, i’m all over the place. With the rise of fast fashion and the rapid turn around of trends and seasons, no two outfits are ever the same.
If you’ve read my blog for a little while now, you’ll know that I regularly upload a series named ‘Four days, four outfits’ – if you fancy a nosey you can find a few here, here and here. The series documents four of my outfits that i’ve sported over a week. I often get comments telling me i’m brave with colour and interesting in the way I clash prints. But the truth is, I don’t do it for any particular ‘hey, look at me’ way I just wear whatever catches my eye at 6am when I fling my wardrobe open. If that happens to be a bright pink sweater and leopard print leggings, then so be it.
This is not to say that I don’t take inspiration from certain people and eras. I’m very much inspired by the witchy, boho style of Stevie Nicks, the band boy girlfriend vibe of Kate Moss and the kookiness of Fearne Cotton. I guess all of those people have in common a love for the classic rock chick look paired with a hippy vibe.
I love faux fur, leather and sparkle. If you were to raid my wardrobe you’d find a whole host of cheap, vintage and expensive stuff but most of all you’ll find colour! I really feel style erupts around your hair colour. When I was blonde, my style was very classic with lots of floral and pastel toned pieces that i’m back redhead it’s more about darker, moodier shades and patterns.
