Touching back on this post I wrote earlier in the month, my relationship with fashion is changing. Gone are the days where I wouldn’t consider a piece of clothing unless it was black, ripped, mesh or sheer. Gone are the days where my wardrobe was exclusively sports luxe, and gone are the days where the possibility of wearing colour or print left me gasping for breath with mild palpitations.
Nope, my style is definitely changing.
Lately I’ve found myself considering colour and print a lot more often than I would have done ordinarily – I like the idea of clashing prints, of contrasting colours and textures adding a little more interest to my outfits. I like the idea of layering, and I also really like the idea of one statement piece being able to inform a huge quantity of other outfits.
Admittedly some things will never change – for example my love for oversized t-shirts and slogans, high necked sweaters, band t-shirts, and all the mesh known to mankind however 2017 is for me the year in which I teach myself how to incorporate my long term loves with newfound wardrobe crushes. In celebration of this, I thought I would put together a little overview of the pieces I’m coveting for my wardrobe this spring – I’ve split it into sections and linked back to each of the pieces, but I didn’t include photos because I didn’t want this to become too image heavy, so I’m sorry if it looks a little bland!
(Also, putting this together has totally satisfied my online shopping cravings for the time being via the power of extended window shopping – my bank account thanks you, blogging gods)
