I’m not trying to blow my own trumpet here but I do think it takes balls to wear an entire look that’s oversized. Even though I feel very comfortable and confident in baggy clothes, (though I prefer the term “oversized” sounds chicer to me) sometimes I do have to psych myself up a little and remind myself that I dress for me and not anyone else. I guess because I’m aware that pretty much any guy out there would NOT be sexually attracted to me wearing this, to them it has zero sex appeal, which is fine I’m not trying to impress anyone other then myself. But like any woman, I like to still appear attractive in what I wear to my guy and especially after ten years and so that’s why I get a little self conscious and like I said, have to psych myself up. This may sound like the ramblings of a crazy person but these are the little moments that are real to me. Dressing should always be fun but there are still underlying issues that date back to my upbringing that cause these small moments of insecurity from time to time. I want to talk about this at length sometime but not today.
So its to the big day tomorrow, yep the royal wedding is upon us and I’m rather excited. My mum, my sister and I will literally take any opportunity we can and turn it into a reason to get festive in one way or another! So tomorrow we are going to be watching the anticipated event with some yummy treats and things. I don’t think the boyfriend gets it but he can go tinker in his shed or something, ha!
PORTER Magazine is still one of my favourites, the proof is in the fact that I still pretty much own every issue I ever bought! Judge me, I don’t care, I simple love the editorials, the photography is always so dreamy and inspiring to me. Though I’m not thrilled that they’ve cheekily upped the price to and extortionate £6.00 which isn’t exactly encouraging and especially when print is so often up for debate in a time where online is queen! But like a hopeless romantic, I’m not giving up on print any time soon and whilst I may have a little moan about the price, like a fool I’ll still pay it because flipping through a magazine brings forth a feeling that not even the great and powerful World Wide Web can replace!
Whatever it is you’re doing this week, may it be filled with love, light and laughter.
