Optional (and recommended) prep work before reading this monthâ€™s post: go around your house and make a little mental (or physical, Iâ€™m easy) note of what you can see in the following hiding places: your wardrobe; your shoe collection; your fridge/pantry, and your cosmetics cupboard/dressing table. No matter how bare or brimming these areas of your nest are, I hope that youâ€™ll begin to notice certain themes lurking in each. For example, although Iâ€™m a bird who doesnâ€™t subscribe to wearing a lot of makeup, I do have a penchant for fabulous nail varnishes. My collection isnâ€™t vast, but thereâ€™s an obvious trend; namely understated nudes, pastel pinks, and darker, cold hues with a hint of shimmer. There is no hint of neon to be found. Moving to my overly extensive wardrobe (which I am always ungratefully bored of) I see lots of natural tones â€“ tans, browns, greys (the odd plum sweater, maybe) â€“ splashes of velvet, cheeky peeks of Breton stripe, trimmings of lace and a few impractical â€śstatementâ€ť pieces. Similarly with my shoes, I find cherry red (faux) snakeskin ankle boots nuzzling up next to my Vans Old Skools, who in turn drape a shoelace around my Melissa Lovefoxx sandals.Â When asked to describe my style, I say itâ€™s â€śWhateverâ€ť. Itâ€™s whatever I feel like, whatever the weather, whatever I want. In turn, I try to live my life by the mantra of my wardrobe, which becomes glaringly apparent when you look in our kitchen cupboards: scotch pancake ingredients, stuffing mix, cloudy lemonade, cinema sweet popcorn, potatoes, and tomato soup (we havenâ€™t done our weekly shop yet, can you tell?).
To surmise, Iâ€™m not massively fond of abiding by things that are just supposed to be; when I eat a steak I like to lavish it in mayonnaise and I donâ€™t care who sees, and if I want to wear Dr Martens with a tea dress then I will, because why should it matter? Some things are the way they are for a reason, but some things are the way they are because weâ€™re told that theyâ€™re supposed to be.
If youâ€™re a bride to-be and youâ€™re reading this, then you and I are in very similar, very lucky positions. Youâ€™re at a fork in the road of your pre-married life where you could either get lost in a world of meringue corset dresses, organ music and â€śBoring Bride
