Teddy Boy

Fluffy jumper - Primark
Waxed trousers - COS (gift)
Converse - Office

Firstly, HAPPY NEW YEAR!! It's 2014 and it's going to be amazing!

My main resolution for this year is to make myself happy. It sounds simple but with the impending doom of turning 25 fast approaching (August...still a little while...phew!) I'm not afraid to admit I've been going through a bit of a quarter life crisis. I've obsessed over how unhappy I am in my job, how empty my savings account is and how boring my eulogy would be if I got hit by a bus tomorrow...

Although it is a pretty depressing situation when all laid bare in front of you, it does also bring the realisation that YOU CAN do something about it and change all those things you're not totally satisfied with.

To cut to the relevant bit re blogging, this year I am 100% dressing for myself. Simples. I will no longer ignore that perfect kooky outfit that I've formed in my head for the same Primark skater dress and chunky boots that I wore 2 weeks ago, because I think my imaginary outfit might be a bit "out there"...bothered?

Coat - Charity Shop

 This casual outfit is something I would definitely have opted out of wearing a year or so ago.

There's a definite chance of a camel toe incident, my stomach is dangerously close to escaping through my jumper/jeans gap and frankly rolled trousers with converse make me feel like a boy...but I lurve it!

These Primark fluffy jumpers were the must-haves of last season and I got given this one for Christmas along with these amaaaaaaaaaaazing high waisted trousers from COS.

These trousers are the dream. They have a shine to them and almost look like leather but are made of a canvas style material coated with a waxy layer. I love the combination of the two textures together, one very girlie and soft and the other fitted and modern.

It's only baby steps outside of my comfort zone but it's a start.

What do you think of this boyish look?
