Today I’m going to talk about my style. Or what it is that I’ve come to define as my style. I think if you’ve followed along with this blog for a little while a really clear idea of what I like and don’t like has formed. What can I say, I found my happily ever after (for now) and I’m sticking to it.
To continue to metaphor, as far as what I wear I’ve kissed a lot of style frogs. And I was making out with them hard before I found the one. The look that suits you, that you love and that expresses who you are. Casual, slouchy, comfortable and a little bit sporty are the things I love. You can’t get me out of ankle boots and I almost entirely refuse to wear floral. I’m a girl who knows what she likes.
And that’s it.
That’s the key to your personal style.
Wear what you like, find things that you love to wear, are happy and confident wearing, and wear them. When people say that you shouldn’t wear ankle boots with your chunky calves, you can nod and smile and politely tell ask them “who says?” if you’re confident. If you’re happy, the need to make someone else happy lessens. You know, unless that person actually matters.
And to think, all I really wanted to do in this post is point out how much I love this dress, the print the style, all the things, and I’ve gone off in a style based ‘this is how you do it’ type lecture. Haha. Sorry about that. Back to the outfit. Cool, right?

the dress is ok > the model is supercute and so are her shoes
Thanks JJ. Love these shoes.
oh – you’re the model – ok, well, quite nice
Not model, blogger. But yes, that’s me in the pics.
That is such a great colour on you, love it! And I couldn’t agree more with what you’re saying, if you know what you like and what works best for you, it’s all good. Much love, Kirsten xx
Thank you Kirsten. Blues, what can I say, we love we love each other. Haha. And style really is as simple and as hard as that. x
We are the same about florals. I don’t like it on myself.
I haven’t gotten the hang of wearing ankle boots, though. My one and only pair is still in its box, while I decide if I should send them back to ASOS!
By ankle boots, I’m not counting my Dr. Martens 1460s, although they’re also ankle boots (or are they?)
Haha. Doc Martens are a category ALL of their own. 😉
It took me a while to find ankle boots that worked for me, look for something with a wider ankle opening or a dip at the front that exposes more ankle. That can help. And if you’re not happy, return them. Keep looking.
Ummmmmm the colour of those boots is soooooooooooo cool! Goes perfectly with the dress.
Hahaha my style is eclectic, dark colours or jewel tones, BIG prints if prints come to the party, with LOTS of boots and leggings. And tight. I like tight fitting clothes. Bodycon dresses are my favourite! I like to show off my bum hahahahaha
Amazing, right? SO GOOD. I’ve been looking for blue boots for a year or two now. So excited to find these and they were like $45! Win.
Haha. Love a good bodycon too! Alas, no real bum here!
