I’ve done quite a few bloggie interviews where I’ve been asked , “What’s your Style?”
To tell you the truth I always draw a bit of a blank because at heart I think I’m a bit of a chameleon and adapt my style to suit different occasions. But I suppose deep down personal style is driven more by what you would most prefer to wear given the chance.
What shall I wear today?
When I ask myself this question my brain often runs into a fog! I fumble through my wardrobe often discarding smart clothes for comfortable clothes.
For me my everday clothes have to be comfy, so too my shoes (I don’t know about you but there’s nothing worse than my toes being pinched) but that’s not to say that I don’t enjoy wearing a colour or accessory to make a bit of a statement to a comfortable but casual outfit, like below. The jeggings are from Millers Fashions, the pink top is from a boutique in England and the boots are from Millers. The pashmina is from a bazaar in Turkey.
When I was looking for inspiration for this post, I came upon a quiz, which if you’re interested you can do here : Style Quiz
Although I take these sorts of quizzes with a pinch of salt, they’re always a bit of fun, and I was quite surprised with the result because it’s probably fairly true.
I’ll be interested to know what your style is – let me know in the comments 🙂
My look came up as: Sporty (Ha!)
“You are a very active person, and it’s likely that you are also quite athletic and fit.
Since you’re often on the go, you prefer clothes that are extremely comfortable and versatile.
You never know when you’re about to take off on a hike or bike ride, so there’s no way you’re wearing shoes that are hard to walk in!”
The next bit I had to giggle at thought, because it’s not true!
“Besides, you work hard for your sporty frame, so you might as well show it off with some form fitting clothing!”
I’m not sure if a daily walk and a few stretches count, and my belly doesn’t allow for ‘form fitting clothing’.
In the past I’ve always thought of my style as a little bit Boho, not thinking that actually I tend to dress ready for action a lot of the time. I like to walk from car to restaurant, I like to take the stairs instead of the escalator, I like to go bicycling, and if there’s a chance to sit on the grass I like to do that too, so my clothes and footwear must work for me all the time.
What about you?
Anyway, I’ve put together a look which I think perfectly suits the idea of sporty, but which would suit the not-so-sporty too. It’s comfortable and casual, but if I had any trouble at all walking in those purdy booties I’d whip them off for a pair of flats! I’ve based the look on H & M who have just opened up in Perth (Yay!) but you could pop over to the online store which I’ve linked to if there isn’t a store near you.
