Style Isn’t Just Something You Put On In The Morning

I love reading blogs. I also love when bloggers link the items online so you can simultaniously shop and be informed.
Sadly my outfits will not always have such links, mainly down to my inability to pass up a sale rack or throw anything away.
I would not say I had a particular style but that I have my own style and for this I thank my Mam (My Mum – for anyone not living in the North of England).

I remember watching my Mam getting ready for nights out and thinking (as I still think) that she was the most beautiful woman in the world and that when I was older I wanted to look and dress just like her (even with the 80’s hair and super sized shoulder pads).
To me she was so stylish and her opinion of me mattered the most.
She encouraged my velvet hat ‘blossom’ stage and even allowed me to get a Dani from Neighbours undercut
At times when I had “nothing to wear” or I did not feel like the belle of the ball she
told me that style isn’t just something you put on in the morning.

Now I’m a role model. I’m the one encouraging my little girl to have her own style. To have the confidence to wear whatever she wants and wear what makes her happy
I’m delighted that she clashes prints, colours, seasonal pieces and random accessories
She has a closet full of clothing yet repeatedly wears the same few things – her favourites
She has the right idea

So my advice…
Don’t keep a favourite dress only for special occasions, wear it as often as you can.
Feel confortable in what you are wearing, if you are pulling it up or down all day it’s not worth the fuss.
Don’t buy things just to have something new (or to provide links)
People will think you look nice if you look nice, not depending on what season you are wearing
When you look in the mirror try to see what your loved ones see, no-one will think you are as beautiful as your Mum/Dad/Daughter/Son does and
Have your own style
