I felt very brave wearing this outfit yesterday; despite the recent and overwhelming popularity of colour blocking, I still don’t think everyone would have the confidence to pull off this much colour. I certainly received a few stares from strangers while wearing this outfit (but whose to say they were negative rather than positive; maybe they all really liked my outfit!). It’s interesting how I have absolutely no confidence in most areas of life but when it comes to fashion I would pretty much have the confidence to wear anything. I’m overall very happy with my style and my look but I’m not happy with much else in my life. Similarly, I frequently stand out in ‘real life’ by wearing bolder pieces than the average person but I always frustratingly fade into the background in most other ways. I guess you could say that fashion reflects the way I wish I was in all other areas of my life; I would love to be more confident, happy, exciting and colourful.
This week I was able to post one extra outfit than usual; I thought I was an excellent blogger until I realised that my last two outfits are ridiculously similar. The Guess cardigan paired with a green/teal dress or skirt means I didn’t provide as much outfit inspiration or versatility as I would have liked. I even featured the exact same bag! Oh well. It’s funny how I didn’t realise at the time. For once I am not wearing a hair bow! How miraculous!
