WHAT I’M WEARING

The constant reinvention of trends amazes me. Who knew I’d ever wear ruffles again?!
I try not to follow trends too much, as I’ve got a fairly strong idea of what I like, what suits me and what I’ll actually continue to wear, but I always revisit old photographs and re-evaluate trends that myself (or others) have tried. Sometimes I’ll swear to never repeat certain looks, or try new ones already in circulation, and then all it seems to take is one person to pull it off so well for you to join the bandwagon.
Like that time in 2014 when I swore I hated Birkenstocks and any like sandals – look at me now. I just hope this cycle doesn’t apply to those tie-dye sarong skirts I wore on holiday back in the early 2000s… 😂
Speaking of knowing one’s style, I’ve slowly been doing a purge of my wardrobe and honing in on a set colour palette to help me dress quickly and cohesively, and eliminate the possibility of those dreaded impulse buys. So far so good. 🙌 Once I feel like I’ve nailed it, I’ll take you on a tour of my wardrobe and give back some tips!
P.S. I was burnt the day that these photos were taken… can you tell? Hahaha.
