If you asked my best friend to describe my style she couldn't define it in one word. Whenever we go shopping, I'll point out a dress and she would say: "That's very Rosie". She's not being rude, but it roughly translates as "You would wear that, but most people probably wouldn't"
I never thought I had a style. I sometimes like to go with fashion, but prefer to pick up the style the year afterwards when everyone else is moving on. I go from loving wearing greys/silvers all the way through to bright, bold patterns.
Whenever I go on holiday it's a bit of a nightmare; there is no 'capsule' in my wardrobe. Instead it's stuffed with massively different patterns and colours, my suitcase left busting at the seams.
Now this may shock you, but I am not very cool. I was in the geek 'brigade' at school. I learnt quite quickly that I didn't really care what other people thought of me. I'm still a massive geek, a ginormous proud one. I don't mind that I am not 'in fashion' or of the moment. I just wear what I like, when I like no matter how ridiculous others may think I look.
Here is a small selection of the items I have rocked in the last week or so:
See, there's no pattern. If you add in the fact I love wearing shorts (yes, even in winter), have about 30 different dresses (all patterned) and translate my love of bright colours all the way down to my shoes....well....it becomes even more confusing.
So to define my style, I guess its "Very Rosie" and do you know what? That's just about fine with me.
How would you define your style? Heck, how would you define mine?
Would love to hear from you.
