I feel like I’ve changed. I don’t necessarily mean that in a bad way either, but something is definitely different and especially where my wardrobe is concerned. I’m actually really proud of myself for breaking out of my shell with my style this year and experimenting with more print, texture and colour but I have to admit that I do miss my more alternative side and the style that I seemed to have a few years ago.
I’ve mentioned in the past my habit of living in the past and why I need to stop myself fixating on years gone by and look into the future, and yet in typical Lucy fashion, I cannot take my own advice. I’m desperately trying to get my old hairstyle back, my old figure back, and now I am lusting after my 2014 wardrobe. This does not however mean that I am going to morph into Lucy circa 2014 overnight, but I do want to bring back more of those original elements in a more mature way to match my current aesthetic.
I guess what I am trying to say is that I don’t want to lose myself, and after being so concerned with maturing myself and my style I’m losing myself a little along the way.
Nothing made this stand out to me more than my trip to London Edge this weekend where I realised that my style is becoming less alternative by the day – but alternative fashion is still such a huge passion of mine. I don’t think I’ll ever fully embrace the emo look again, but I want to fall in love with my wardrobe again and to do this I think I need to spend longer looking at mixing my two style loves rather than favouring one over the other.
Saying that however, I do want to show you this beaut new outfit that I picked up over the bank holiday. I’m adoring this Prince of Wales check that is hugely in fashion at the moment, and I’ve been wanting to pick something up in this print for the longest time. When I headed into Zara I absolutely couldn’t resist picking up these trousers – they fit like my favourite joggers, have the racer stripe down the side that I have been completely obsessed with in recent months, and are the comfiest things in existence. I decided to pair them with this t-shirt I picked up the same day – completely obsessed with its total Gucci vibes, it’s already become a total favourite for me, I basically don’t ever want to take it off.
