2017 has been a funny old year for me style-wise. On the one hand, I feel like my style has massively evolved and matured and I’ve had the confidence to experiment a little more than I ever have before – and yet I feel myself returning slowly but surely to my old more sports-luxe days but with a slightly more grown up/classy edge, and the thing is, I’m not even slightly sorry for that.
See, by experimenting more and trying so hard to grow and be more blogger and really push myself and my content, I’ve slowly lost myself and my sense of identity along the way. Gone have been the days of blogging for the fun of it and instead I’ve found myself in a downward spiral of comparison and frustration at lack of growth. I’ve also been hugely regretting chopping all my hair off last year which is something I touched upon recently in this post.
Basically, I haven’t been feeling myself.
At the weekend, I styled up this outfit and I have to say, it felt like a massive step in the right direction for me. While I’m not 100% happy with how it photographed (read: I was having an off day and don’t like my face), I felt more myself than in anything I’ve worn for a while. I felt my confidence soar and I felt like the Lucy who started this space three years ago again, rather than the Lucy who has been battling with herself and her mind for the past 11 months. And if that ain’t a good thing then, well, what is eh?
