We all remember those girls in the early ’00s (or maybe we were those girls) who piled on the makeup, pulled their hair up into the highest ponytail possible, and swanned into non-uniform days at school in their brightest and boldest Juicy Couture velour tracksuit. At the time, that really wasn’t my bag, now however…
A few weeks ago I was thrilled to receive a package from Hidden in the post with a gorgeous pair of Gucci-esque boots (that are actually so Gucci that about 8 people on Friday thought I was wearing Gucci. I may or may not have just rolled with it) and they also sent me the most incredible gold lounge set. I mean it’s tacky as hell and I should find it absolutely hideous and that, that reason right there, is why I love it so damn much.
I decided to throw it on this weekend teamed with fishnets, a cropped tee and my new favourite ugly trainers from Topshop and even Joe told me how cool it was as an outfit. I honestly felt so badass and was swanning around the house for ages feeling like some sort of queen and that right there is how good clothes should truly make you feel. No matter how far away from what you typically like, if you wanna experiment and it makes you feel good then damn girl (or boy!) you go for it!
I’m slowly learning that this year, rather than pigeon-holing myself into trying too hard to experiment, or trying to hard to be Lucy circa 2014, or Lucy who doesn’t wear any colour I’m basically going to be Lucy who wears and buys and tries what she wants. I feel like this new mindset has been brought along by my recent foray into hypnotherapy (more about that coming up in a video soon) which is changing my perspective on a lot of things in my life at the moment. I think it’s teaching me to not overthink so much, to just enjoy whatever comes my way whether that be clothes or opportunities or adventures. And that my friends is one hell of a lesson for a Monday morning.
I hope you all have a beyond glorious week, see you on Wednesday.
