The idea of visiting Camden was the inspiration behind this outfit. People in Camden are always so cool, individual, and usually that little bit more punky and hipster-y, dare I say. I’m honestly so bad at describing fashion styles. I know this outfit might seem a little different for me, but the thing is, this really is just another side of my style. I used to be much more daring with my style, and boots. Boots, boots, and boots. So honestly this outfit is a little bit of a throwback to me to how I used to dress up when I just moved to London.
And you know what?
I felt so good in this outfit. I haven’t felt this way with the outfit that I am wearing in a bloody while. I felt really cool, confident, a bit not myself, but also SO myself. It’s really weird. It’s probably because I have gone through a pretty ‘dramatic’ change in my style, as I consider myself to be more monochromatic now and a little bit more classic and chic. So dressing like this, felt different to me when it actually really isn’t!
So I was thinking – maybe I should dress this ‘style’ more often, because I felt so me. But it’s gonna be pretty hard because my outfits are not all so Urban Outfitters-y like this.
And then it hit me. (Again) you know what?
I can dress however the hell I want, and there is no need to conform to a certain look for the rest of your freaking life! I have a hybrid of all different styles, and that’s okay. That’s what makes you… you.
I guess in the world of social media, it’s pretty hard to find your own style, because you get so inspired every single day with thousands and thousands of people’s outfits. And I have to admit I have been a bit caught and stuck in that bubble. I always considered myself as that girl who “doesn’t care about trends”. But because I’ve been deeply immersed to fashion and social media, I am kind of getting caught in trends.
For the past year, I’ve been trying to stick to a certain look – which I don’t even know what kind of look it is. But now I am trying to be a bit more relaxed about it and just basically wear whatever the hell it is I feel like wearing, even if it’s different to what I usually wear.
Enough with all this preaching and self-assuring sentences. Honestly, I don’t even know what I’m saying. I guess this is more of a note-to-self kind of post. I’m probably not even going to listen to myself and do what I usually do again. But that’s just human nature, right?
The main takeaway here is to wear whatever it is that you want to wear. You do not need to always be consistent with your ‘look’. As long as you feel great and feel like yourself.
