I don’t know what has come over me. I love Pinterest, I love Tumblr & Instagram. I am obsessed with anything jazzy and pink/sparkly and am always rocking some sort of luminous nail colour, I’d go as far as to call myself a magpie for clothes…. lately I just flipped a switch.
I literally sent 2 thirds of my clothes to a charity shop and on my last 2 nail appointments I got grey….and beige!! I know that this isn’t exactly shocking news to a lot of people and also makes sense being that these are actually very current trends but I wanted to write a blog about it because it feels so great to step out or rather back from my usual style routine and try something which may be simple but totally new.
Also it has become really less time consuming and lot easier to choose my clothes for the day as I have everything in order i.e all crop tops together, all shorts ,skirts, dresses. I even organised my socks and got rid of any pairs which didn’t go with anything I own and generally just organised everything as much as it can humanly be.
I am also going to make a super conscious effort not to buy anything I don’t need anymore. After reading so much lately about sweat shops and how poor the conditions can often be I’d much rather save up to buy a more expensive and ethical item then a quick fix, I have always thought this but now more then ever…
Check out some of the items I decided to keep and some of my nail and hair choices below….
I will also share the sad fact that I have discovered ironing water and ironed all the clothes I decided to keep…they smell amazing. I’m not sure if my style got better or if my OCD just got worse :/.
