At the ripe old age of 21, I'm finding myself in a style rut. I'm finding myself leaning towards more classic feminine floaty pieces with just a subtle amount of edge. I feel like i'm too old for studs and 'soft grunge' trends, whilst they look amazing on you guys, I feel i look like a lost 14 year old I wear my levi shorts and creepers! And at 21 I don't really enjoy being mistaken for a teen.
So what does this mean? Heaven's no, I am not throwing out my entire wardrobe in a bid to be as babely as the ever so wonderful June Ambrose or Karla Derass.
But I am going to turn a blind eye towards trends, I feel like in some ways it's just better to wear what feels the most comfortable for you style wise, rather than just buying things because they look good in the magazine.
Anyway before I write an essay... Here are two items i nabbed at my local Barnados the other day, they were have a £1.99 clearout and the stuff on offer was pretty darn good! The skirt is unfortunately a bit big but i've used my favourite belt to somewhat hoist it up. Cue me chanelling serious Librarian Chic...
ALSO! What do you think about the smaller images? I upload through my flickr account and I don't know, I just feel like this size is a bit easier to deal with. I'm going to try and find some spare time this week to re-size everything i've uploaded through Flickr *cries*
