Do you really have to choose?
I'm on a little journey .... sadly, not the type that means flying somewhere exotic, but one that is all about connecting back with me. Don't worry, I'm not going to get deep or anything.
This is more about finding my style in both my fashion, make-up and also our home.
Starting with clothing .... I need a make-over! Its a fact. For little over a year, two puppies have had me in anything that can hold treats and poo bags. Yes, that's exactly how I've shopped, which means I've practically lived in jeans. Now this is from someone that probably up to about 2 years ago, never actually owned a pair of jeans. I've always been more of a dress girl. So its time to reconnect with me. I'm also looking at new make-up ranges, as I've hit that certain age, where things in the past just don't work for me anymore.
Getting back to my title. I'm also a home loving body, who's more than happy to be wandering around a shop looking at cushions or throws, no one really judges you there, do they? But I really don't think you need to be one or another. And there too, our home has become a little stuck in the past, and I need to find what works for us.
So, here you go ... join me, on my little journey to renovate both.
All this too, seems coincidental, as the other evening I was looking through IG, and one of my favorite accounts said she had blogged. So I popped on over, and she had something similar to say, which to be honest gave me an idea for this post. Do have a look at it here.
Ok, a little honesty here. I actually went into TopShop the other day, and bought this gorgeous little jumper, and the store SuperDry and bought a denim skirt. Neither of which are stores I'd ever shop in. They feel a little intimidating to me, but I have no reason not to go in really. So that's my new mantra ... shop where I want, and don't worry if it's not age appropriate.
I'm not silly, I don't want to look like I've stepped out of a magazine, and my lifestyle will still involve sitting on the floor with the bears (or wiping a few messes up). So I don't need anything over the top, but I want to look more like me again. Now, she'll hate me for saying this, but Maria always, always, always looks lovely. She has her own style, she knows whats suits her and she's not trend driven, although she does look always very "now". And it's that sort of style, I need to find ... one that's me. I'm sure I'll be making mistakes, and I'll let you know those too. I'm also one that HATES selfies, but in this instance, I'm going to take them and share them with you. So without much further ado ... here's the first outfit.
I've decided that this mirror in our bedroom, may be the best ... as I don't have an audience
But for now, thank you for sticking with me, and do let me know what you think ... Yes or no to the outfit?
