Secondhand Style #2 – They Call Me Mellow Yellow

  Secondhand Style #2 Top: F+F (Depop) | Trousers: Zara (Charity Shop) | Handbag: Accessorize (Charity Shop)  Back in 2017 I posted about a feature I was going to introduce called Secondhand Style. A series where I would be showcasing my favourite charity shop finds. At this time I was buying quite a lot of clothing from Depop and charity shops. But as the summer hit, I found myself shopping more and more on the high-street. So the series quickly dwindled. If you saw my last post you’ll know I’ve decided to give up fast fashion completely. So I’m happy…

Saying Goodbye To Fast Fashion and Shopping More Consciously.

Today I’m here to discuss some thoughts on fast fashion. Now I’m the first to admit I love fashion. Clothes are a huge interest of mine and I love experimenting with different styles and trends. I’ve tried in the past to have a ‘minimalistic’ wardrobe with basic colours etc. But that really does not work for me – at all. I love colour, I love prints and I love having fun with my outfits. But that doesn’t mean I can’t shop more consciously. It’s weird but since turning vegetarian a year ago, I’ve become more aware of how my lifestyle…

Feeling Confident With Summer Style.

TOP: MONKI (SIMILAR) | TROUSERS: BOOHOO | SHOES: XYLONDON* | EARRINGS: BOOHOO If you’re anything like me the words ‘summer fashion’ usually generates feelings of horror and panic. When I was younger summer didn’t bother me all that much. I spent 90% of my time outside, had a face full of freckles and tan lines where my socks had been. But the older you get the more self-conscious you get about your body and how it looks. My legs are a huge insecurity for me and have been for years. Previously I think I was more self-conscious of the paleness…

Adult friendships and finding your tribe.

I’ve spoken previously about friendships, introversion and about how I sometimes struggle with finding the confidence to approach people and start friendships. The post in question I wrote back in 2016 when I was really struggling with not feeling like I belonged. Fast forward two years and I’m in a much better much happier place. So what’s changed? I think overall I’ve just become happier in myself. I’ve struggled over the past few years with issues with, self-confidence and generally not feeling comfortable with my body. This can have a huge effect on lots of different things. In the past, I’ve…
