A girl should be two things; who and what she wants

Be yourself

1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8 | 9 | 10

Coco Chanel never really got it wrong did she, even when it came down to her words. Being a fashion blogger I look at new trends constantly and take inspiration from other bloggers who do a much better job of keeping up with current styles. I think when it comes down to it I just like being myself. I'm not going to buy a pair of Jeffrey Campbells just because they're a blogger favourite and I'm definitely not going to wear Nike Air Max Trainers because they're 'cool' because lets face it they're fucking horrible. Obviously that's my opinion and my intention isn't to upset anyone that likes these things; my only point is that regardless of what fashion dictates I will always stay true to what makes me feel comfortable and to being myself.
 
The above outfit is 'me'. I own pretty much everything here with the exception of a few things I would like to add to my wardrobe - hello new vans and tres tres expensive sunglasses. I'm a shorts and tee kinda girl and I literally live in trainers. I dare you to try and put me in a dress and heels, if my mum is yet to do it I'm pretty sure nobody else will. I'm simple and I like it. What's your true style like?

  1. Love a good Coco Chanel reference & definitely agree on the nike air max trainers, they're hideous! Should've stayed a "chav" thing. xx

  4. Love this post! I hate "sheep" people who forever copy others just because it's become popular and it's "fashion". Don't get me wrong, I'm constantly trying to keep up with the trends and love getting inspiration from others. But I only wear things if it's 'me' and I like it. Not because everyone else is wearing it. You have to have your own stamp on things otherwise you'll just blend in with the rest. You go sister! I agree air Max's are for chavs! Lol sorry for the long winded message! Love the outfit choice, and love those Old Skool vans. Nice!

    1. I know it really is annoying! I'm the same - it's nice to keep up with current trends but only if it suits me and only if I genuinely like it! Not because fashion dictates that I should wear it. Don't worry I like these long comments haha :) urgh Nike Air Max are truly the most awful shoes on the planet, especially these friggin' neon ones :|! xx

  10. Amazing outfit! I agree with you! We shouldnt buy things just because the top blogger use it! We should buy what we like and wear it with other things that are more trendy, creating out own style! :)

    1. I totally agree. I think it's much more interesting when I read peoples blogs who do have their own individual style - I get so much more inspiration from that! Thank you so much, this has made my day hehe! I will check out yours now :) xx

  11. I'm not a very 'trendy person' at all, I just go for what I like! I tend to like things when they are just going out of fashion, rather than when they are just starting - oops!

  13. I absolutely agree! I love this post - I think people should dress how ever they want and not just wear something because they've seen someone else wearing it.

    1. Definitely. I think people need to be more confident with standing out about what makes them feel comfortable however out there/untrendy it might be. Hahaha oh god they're so awful aren't they!? xx

  19. THIS. I would rather eat my own head than wear disco pants haha! That backpack is really cute, it reminds me of travelling in South America. I don't know if I have a true style, I like to mix it up a bit. I could never live without denim and leather!
