As we are well and truly into the swing of summer my style has had a shakeup. I’m more worried about the chub at the top of my thighs because chaff sucks. I think about my boobs being the appropriate amount ‘on show’ (ie. appropriate as in I feel comfy) and how I can avoid not getting into a bikini because I can’t be bothered with taming my lady garden to that extent on the reg. Shit gets real. My mind goes into overdrive. I hate being hot but I hate feeling hot in my clothes. Temp wise.
So with keeping all those things in my mind finding my personal style for the warmer months can be a little tricky. I don’t have something I would label my ‘uniform’ yet but I am playing around with a few things with the hope I will find things that I feel confident wearing.
HATS & EARRINGS
You guys know I’m a hat gal. I love hats. I wear a hat pretty much every single day. I feel confident, sassy and like me when I have a fedora on the back of my head. It’s an easy way to hide dirty hair and also make a basic outfit a bit spesh. For the summer I am planning to swap out my fedoras for some boater or straw hats and play around with my usual everyday uniform to make things a little more season appropriate. You guys may have noticed over on Instagram I have become next level addicted to earrings for jazzing up outfits. There are so many amazing finds out there and they add a fun element to your style without it being a physical layer on your back.

I have an overflowing inspo folder on Insta for just summer style. I save photos from mega bloggers and from my friends that are total babes and have it going on. It doesn’t even have to mean anything. What I mean by that is you don’t have to go buy every item like the ones you’ve saved but it does help identify some things you may be into. I just like looking through and getting a feel for layering ideas or even just colours I may want to try on!
ELEMENTS FROM MY WINTER STYLE
In winter I love hats and layers. On repeat. Everyday. I’m obviously able to still wear hats (yay!) however the layering thing can be a little trickier now it’s super hot. I’m trying to think of ways to layer like the above outfit that will still be cool enough for everyday. Now I know when it’s like 40 degrees that may not be a viable option but I think it’s important to stick with some elements that make you feel best and me that is layering.
One of the ace things that comes from shooting so many outfits is the reflection element. I can look over an outfit and be like damn girl you look good or maybe I should try that out this way. It’s been a really helpful process. I know not everyone is going to want to take photos and share them online but even if you snap a photo of every outfit you wear for a week then go back through them and do the same thing. It really helps trust me! I’ve even started taking photos when I buy something new and I’m trying it on with existing things in my wardrobe. It makes you consciously think do I love it etc etc.
Do you feel more confident in summer or winter with your style?
