A Major Discovery I've Made About My Personal Style

I'm someone who has never just stuck with one particular style. I sometimes have black ripped jeans, with a band tee and leather jacket, other times I have a pretty little tea dress on with delicate sandals. I'm unpredictable what can I say. However, recently I have discovered a side of my style that I never thought I had. Now it's not to stay that I've had a style epiphany and I'm going to be looking a certain way from now on. It just means have figured out what I have considered the missing piece from my style.

I can only describe this missing piece as basically Urban Outfitters. Their clothing - but a lot cheaper. Brands like Pull and Bear, and Bershka. I have always loved these brands but have regularly gone for the "safe" options and nothing really out there. I'm talking about forgetting designer clothing and going for trainers because they look cool. Or exploring sports wear as regular clothing. Wearing jeans that don't cut off my circulation, and t-shirts with writing on because they are making an opinionated statement rather than just "I love unicorns" or "heartbreaker".

I was born in the 90s, yes the end of 1999, but it still counts. And as usual fashion is making a full circle once again and 90s fashion is so, totally, in rn. It's an area of fashion which I LOVE and this is another factor which has inspired me to delve deeper into my own persona style.

Where I live I feel like their is immense pressure to look and act a certain way. Essex girl basically. It's a confidence thing for me, if I'm going to break away from my usual attire and wear this new revelation of clothing I have discovered then I need the confidence to do it. I don't want to look like every other girl. There is nothing wrong with that don't get me wrong, and yeah I will still be slapping on my fake tan and caking my makeup to the nines, but it also means that I won't be wearing an outfit because I want to fit in. I'm going to start wearing more of what I want to wear and not giving a toss as to what anyone else has to say about it.

When I was 14 I went out on a limb and created this blog. I had a tonne of slack and hateful comments about it but I stuck to it, and now it's one of the things I'm most proud of. This is something I want to do for myself. It may seem a bit dramatic that I'm declaring I'm going to be wearing mom jeans instead of skinny ones 24/7 but it's much more than that. It's about my self identity and not allowing other people to dictate what I wear or how I look,  not necessary directly but through the underlying peer pressure which I can't help but feel.

So, I guess it's time to do some shopping.
