Hello everyone and welcome back to another Sunday Saves! If you’ve never been here before, this is the time of the week where I choose five posts that I have read and loved, relating to a chosen topic, and talk about them. This week I’m talking about personal style, and I have a blog post coming up soon on my own personal style struggle and how at twenty six, I’m still trying to find my own style.
1) Katy Belle (On Discovering Your Personal Style)
There’s always one woman you know who kills it every time with style and fashion and makes it seem so effortless; Katy is this woman and if you just look at her blog, you’ll see very fast why I think this. This post of Katy’s is about two years old but for me, it’s still very relevant. She talks about being in a similar position to myself but also realising that she wants to set herself free from buying clothes that she only likes and doesn’t love. It’s really important when buying new clothes that you genuinely love them, or else, why do you want to spend your money on something that you either don’t feel confident in or you “think” it will grow on you.
2) Thred Up (How To Wear One Pair Of Jeans All Weekend Long)
Hilary is my type of woman. I live in jeans; if I’m not in my workout leggings, I’m in jeans. I went through a stage in college when all I would wear was jeggings but I’m a jeans woman through and through. From the office, to a date night right through to Sunday brunch, we can see how one pair of jeans can do quite a few occasions and that’s what I really loved about this post. With my personal style in particular, I want to move from a plain jumper and a pair of jeans to dressing it up a little more so I’ve found some real style inspiration from this.
3) Life Unexpected (What Mama Wore #1)
Chloe’s idea behind her new weekly series “What Mama Wore” is lovely. She talks about her blog has primarily been focused around her daughter (who is so adorable!) but now that she’s starting school, she’s wanting to bring the focus back to herself and developing her style is one way that she’s planning to do this. I can’t wait to see how this series developed with Chloe; her first post talks more in detail about her style fears and her reasons for wanting to develop into more of a personal style. I also love the pink jumper she mentions (even though I have just said above that I want to move away from wearing jumpers all the time), I might need to see if I can find a similar one (and she gives you recommends on ones that are similar to the one she’s picked). I just really love the idea behind it!
4) Style & Life by Susana (Basic Wardrobe Winter Essentials For Style)
If you’re not sure about the winter essentials that you need to look good but keep warm, Susana has you covered. I already have a statement coat and while I feel like I’m too short to pull off over the knee boots, I feel like a turtleneck jumper is next on my winter essential wish list. Absolutely loved this must have list by Susana and I would even say this would be a good list if you were trying to structure your wardrobe by a capsule wardrobe theme or a seasonal minimalism view, this would be perfect.
5) Colours and Carousels (Finding Your Own Style Comfort Zone – And Going Beyond It)
Charlotte and I think on the same wave length. She talks about her metallic dress and on the rare time I wear a daytime dress, my first thought also is “How can I dress this down?” because I know for me, if I were to wear a dress and no-one is used to seeing me in a dress, I feel like I stand out like a sore thumb and everyone is looking at me. I get very anxious and because I’m not someone who loves attention on myself (This is one of the reasons why I don’t have birthday parties and it’s the main reason I dread when I get married; everyone looking at me? Aah!) dressing it down would be my go-to thought. Charlotte’s main point of her post is to find your comfort zone and just push past it with little baby steps. For me, I don’t want to dress down that dress, I want to dress my jeans up with a fancy pair of heels or wear a statement necklace to bring out a neutral outfit. It’s just about taking those baby steps first.
Well that’s all from my Sunday Saves today, thank you so much for taking the time to read and make sure to take a read of the other blogs mentioned too. Have a great week!
