boost: real talk on style

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?

WHO CARES!

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.

Spring Lookbook

The initial plan was to upload this early May, when Spring has just sprung and the weather is actually a bit colder (hence the slightly warmer clothes). It’s really quite hard to get people to film me ((un)fortunately my friends are hermit crabs and it’s so freaking hard to get them out of their HOME) so that’s why there is a one-month delay.

Anyway, in this lookbook, I featured four outfits, hopefully to inspire you on what to wear for what’s left of spring. I personally think spring is quite an awkward season, but it is my favourite. I feel like I always don’t know what to wear (well this happens no matter what season lol) because in the afternoon it’s kinda hot and in the evening it’s freezing. So it’s too hot to wear a jacket in the afternoon, but if you plan to be outside for the whole day, well, you’re kinda doomed without an outerwear. One thing all the outfits in this lookbook have in common are the lightweight outerwear and bottoms. I think they are key to keep yourself looking stylish but also fit for the weather.

I hope you enjoy this lookbook and let me know what you think down in the comments, and I’ll see you in my next one! 😉

Spring has sprung!

The weather is FINALLY getting friendly with Britain! It’s not just the sun that we still meet sometimes in the odd winter’s day, this time the weather is getting much hotter, although still with the occasional breeze. The flowers have bloomed, the leaves are starting to grow on trees, everyone’s mood just seems so much brighter! Spring is definitely my favourite season. We can finally wear less layers!! Oh, and how can I forget the sunglasses? :p

Before you make assumptions – yes, those are trousers, not a skirt 🙂

Another day in the park.

I like spending my time in parks. I find it really relaxing, especially when the park has a beautiful view. My favourite park so far is still Primrose Hill (can you consider this as a park?) but this time I went to Greenwich Park with Tara. It was very grey and gloomy, though. Did not expect it to be THIS grey. But what can you do? That’s British weather for you!

Writing about this post, I just realised something – I don’t dress according to the season. First of all, this was taken when it was still quite cold, hence the jumper and the coat. When you look at this picture, you would probably think this was taken in November because it’s a very autumnal look, this one. Even though it’s supposed to be a transition time to spring. But that’s just me – I don’t really mind about dressing according to the season. I mean obviously I would wear less clothes in summer and more in winter. What I meant is that I don’t care about colours and all that. People seem to think that when it’s spring, you’re supposed to wear brighter colours or pastel colours, and there’s no more of that burgundy and khaki colours anywhere on your body. Aaaaanyway… I’m not trying to be snobby, I just realised something that’s all! Haha. We all have our own views on everything 🙂

From now on I will try to actually link the things I am wearing as well. As long as they’re still available online.
