Style Explorations

Sometimes when it comes to fashion clothing can be more than what we wear, it can be rather exciting. I love to branch out and wear a variety of styles and if you were to go through my wardrobes it would look like clothing for about 5 different women lol. My style changes with my mood and so I like to have items to pretty much suit every situation. I like to push boundaries at times and challenge my confidence. I often find that when I push myself out of my comfort zone my confidence is majorly boosted!

Hanna and I were on our way to view the latest lingerie and swimwear collections from Elomi a couple of weeks ago. When I attend press events I usually like to wear something from the brand i’m visiting, however I had no intention of walking the streets of London in my underwear! With that in mind I thought why not wear a lace top from Zizzi that I bought about a year ago. Most women have clothes that they have never worn before and this item was one of mine! Underneath I was wearing my Carmen lingerie set featuring plum coloured plunge bra. I figured that as I have no issue wearing dresses that highlight my cleavage what difference would this look make?!

We all have our own set of style rules that we choose to follow. In my case I don’t like to showcase both my legs and cleavage. I figure it’s best to balance everything out by going with one or the other. As it was a chilly November day in London I decided to pair this top with my gold metallic skirt from Lane Bryant (previously seen on the blog about a year ago). The funny thing I find is that when I wear daring items my confidence soars. Some people may find that they feel exposed or on display. For me I think it shows that only a confident woman would put her outfits together the way I do lol.

Coordination is the name of my game and so I decided to select items with gold adornments to finish off my look. Starting with my signature hoop earrings of course, pulling out my vanity boots from Hotter and wearing a black handbag showered in gold studs. The hint of purple in the bra is literally the only colour i’m wearing here other than black and gold lol. I actually got a lot of compliments for this outfit even though it is rather edgy. Of course I was feeling sassy, fierce and quite like the fashionista…

It’s always good when items you’ve had for a while are still very much in fashion and on trend for the season. That doesn’t matter though, I say wear what makes you feel amazing and confident. Don’t get caught up by the so called rules, unless of course you set these rules yourself! Experiment with what you wear, step outside of the box and try something new. You may surprise yourself with how your confidence improves!

Remember whatever you wear, feel fabulous in it and do it with a smile!
