Hello! I am back on this blogging bandwagon and I am determined to stay on it. Ok so jumping right in with it, I spent A LOT of time on my phone in 2020. (as I’m sure a lot of you have!) and with that endless hours of scrolling came the inevitable overthinking and comparing myself to others and in turn feeling bad about myself. In doing so I feel like both my confidence and my style kind of got a little ‘lost’ towards the end of last year as looking back I could see I started wearing and trying to shoot photos I thought would ‘do well’ instead of being true to me, and trying trends that weren’t really my style. I’ve decided that this year I think maybe we should stop starting resolutions at the start of the year when it’s cold and miserable haha (or at all let’s not be too hard on ourselves this year for heavens sakes we don’t need any unnecessary pressure in 2021 it’s bad enough as it is!) but I do think one thing I want to stick to this year is being true to myself and my style.
So I wanted to share with you some colours that make me feel happy and outfits I feel good in, I’ve been drawn to lots of colour (and gingham) recently and they are really brightening up these moody miserable lockdown months. My style has definitely evolved and changed since last year, and these are my favourites.
Pink on pink. My name is Sara and I am obsessed with pink. There I said it. If you follow me on Instagram then you’ll know ! So I finally got my hands on a La Veste gingham shirt when it came back in stock briefly after lusting after it for the majority of last year (however I sadly got stung with the new Brexit customs charges as I waited to long) but honestly, this shirt is definitely worth it. Worn with my beloved baby pink Zara flares I found second hand on eBay and with my gold Gucci shoes, I can’t wait to wear this when we are allowed out. And minus 4567 layers of course.
Baby blue. I’ve gone from avoiding blue at all costs to wanting a wardrobe filled with baby blue pieces. What can I say, maybe it’s because it reminds me of the summer blue skies I’m craving? This Ganni horse print on baby blue maxi dress was THE dress I was lusting after-and I finally managed to find one on Depop. Worth checking religiously as both the mini and maxi are sold out everywhere now. Cannot WAIT to wear this without the polo neck and with some chunky sandals when the weather gets warmer.
Lilac ! My love for lilac knows no bounds. Haha. It’s another colour that makes me feel happy and it’s an instant mood boaster for me. I’m just loving the tonal outfits too ! This outfit is from ethical brand Vjera V and all the beads on the jumper are hand sewn on-it’s like a work of art! I’ve linked the jumper here, and the lilac gingham (oh yes double points for this skirt being BOTH lilac and gingham) here.
Green (and Lilac. Preferably together.) There’s just something about this combination I just cannot get enough of ! This green vintage cardigan is absolutely amazing, I’ve never come across a vintage knit like it, I could not resist keeping it when we went vintage buying last year. And the collar is from Delphi Eva, she actually named it after me too so I’m just over the moon about that as it’s so me !
So there we have it, the colours and outfits that are making me happy so far this year, I’ve decided no more dark colours and I’m filling my wardrobe with colour !
