PREPPING MY SUMMER WARDROBE.

ITEMS IN THIS POST WERE GIFTED BY TOBI *

PREPPING MY SUMMER WARDROBE.


It's been miserable all week and I'm fairly certain it's forecast to snow in the foreseeable future but today, today we're going to talk about working towards my summer wardrobe.

The day I moved out of my parents house my friends helped me built my new wardrobe and I suddenly had all this potential space to fill with new clothes and those first few months of living away from home I ordered as much as I could and quickly filled it up, filled it so much it's over flowing and I'm beginning to think it's time to get things sorted. Items may soon find themselves on DEPOP and I've bagged plenty for the charity shops. 

So obviously whilst I'm low-key panicking that I've stuffed my wardrobe full to the brim, it makes sense for me to be spending hours online wishing I had the space and money for the items online, but in true blogger fashion instead of dwelling on that fact; I'm going to share with you *potentially* my first #fashionblogger post that hasn't involved me standing in front of my mirror and whilst I'm actually a nervous wreck about this, I'm also a little excited because I'm in love with the pictures my best friend LAURA snapped for me...who btw you can read her blog, here


I've been staring at this page for days and day, wondering how I could write this post and each time my mind would go back to my body confidence, it wasn't until recently where I felt comfortable standing in front of another person and let them take a photograph of me - let alone consider doing that for a blog post. But here we are. 

I'm fairly certain you can see that fear in my eyes but *fuck it*

That being said; I've always struggled with my body confidence and it's become more intense, I feel uncomfortable everyday and shopping is less and less enjoyable, I'm beginning to see this other person in the mirror and it's someone I'm not happy with and all I know is I want to do something about it and be happy in my body again - I've considered what changes can be made but whether I'll manage to make those changes by summer will be a huge challenge - but even the smaller change in my confidence/body will be a win for me. The crazy thing is on the good days - I can wear the tightest of tops, high waisted skinny jeans and stick it to the man. I'm comfortable yet uncomfortable and I'm forever waiting for the day when I don't feel it anymore. 

To the unknown eye the outfit I'm sharing today is completely *normal* and there's nothing to fear here but those CULOTTES are new to my wardrobe and even attempting to wear them with pride feels a little bit awkward right now and the OFF THE SHOULDER BODYSUIT; I've never worn a bodysuit until TOBI sent this over, it's comfortable, it's breathable and I can honestly see this becoming a staple piece of my wardrobe, especially for those minimal effort evening outfits [because I don't have enough of those, seriously] but the off the shoulder thing; I don't know why but I'm so nervous when it comes to showing off my skin, so that's going to take some convincing.

When Tobi contacted me for this collaboration; all emotions flew through me.

COULD I REALLY DO THIS? 
WOULD MY STYLE FIT? 
WOULD I BE MAKING A COUPLE TIT OF MYSELF? 
AM I EVEN A FASHION BLOGGER? 
WHAT IF NOTHING FITS? 

And you know what? I'm glad I did this, it's taken me out of my comfort zone. It's made me take a couple risks and it's gotten me excited to try new things, I'm ready to experiment with my summer wardrobe, mixing my old pieces and saving towards some new. I've always been a huge fan of colour, patterns and prints but I've always reverted back to black to keep things simple - and whilst I'm completely comfortable with my *sometimes* jumbled style; I'm going to keep at it. I'm going to take those risks from time to time - because they can pay off BUT I'm not going to get myself beat up if I don't feel comfortable in something, I've come to the decision that body confidence isn't just about making changes to a body I'm unhappy in but it's working on ways to make myself happy in the body I have.

It's quite ironic that Demi Lovato - Confident is blasting through my speakers and I'm writing the last of this post. Demi has always been an idol of mine; since I was 15. I've wanted to resemble her style, her hair, her personality and most of all her confidence. Imma take this crazy coincidence and wear the clothes that make me happy, even if that means I'm awkwardly worrying for the first hour of being in public or that I pick that t-shirt that should've been thrown out 5 years ago, I'm going to go with the flow, look out for new summer pieces to add to my wardrobe but overall focus on the clothes that make me happy. 

What your favourite clothing item? What fashion risk do you want me to make?
