Boots: Doc Martens
When looking at these photos the first thing that sprung to my mind was 'granny-meets-military-chic'. My favourite trend this season is by far pastels, so I thought I'd embrace it in full swing with this pink ensemble. I had originally styled the outfit without the coat, boots and bag; however I eventually decided to give it more of a grungy edge. It's funny how accessories can change the entire aesthetic of an outfit, and take it from drab to fab with no effort whatsoever. Despite this, I did get a few odd looks and sniggers wearing this into my local town. If I'm honest, I couldn't give two hoots! I'm all for promoting individuality and uniqueness when it comes to personal style, and if somebody dislikes that then I try not to let it get to me. I always think that you should dress for yourself and nobody else; that way you can explore different styles and feel confident with what you wear. You should never try to change yourself in an attempt to fit in- just stay true to yourself! There are an abundance of facts that come with life, and one of them is that you can never please everyone; so you should give up trying and just focus on pleasing yourself.
Despite this weekend's arrival of sunshine, I picked up a terrible cold which has resulted in me feeling and looking like the living dead. Walking around with watering eyes and a red nose is never a good look, regardless of how good looking you may be. I'm sure even Alexa Chung would struggle to pull it off! I'm keeping my fingers crossed that my cold will be gone within the next few days. I don't think I can tolerate another outburst of sneezes!
Hopefully you're all feeling much better than I am!
Hugs and kisses, Sarah xo
