Topshop Taffeta Midi Skirt: £95

I cannot even begin to tell you how many outfits I’ve built around this skirt in my head. It’s rare that such a statement piece has me infatuated, but let me tell you, this has truly stolen my heart. And whether it falls under a current trend or not, I feel like it’s something I’d be pulling out from Narnia* for years to come.

To Trend Or Not to Trend

I know I go on and on and on and on  and on and on *about my feelings about fashion trends. Style over fashion blah blah blah, but I’ve been trying to work out why exactly I’m quite so adverse to buying into trends for a while. Until I got my hair cut.

I feel like my hair is the salon equivalent of the crop top: In the shop it looks great styled well, you’re posing showing your best self, breathing in. As soon as you leave the store/salon/whatever, the wind blows, you breathe out and let loose and suddenly it don’t look so good no more. Your hair is limp and you’ve got a muffin top.

Back in January I decided to partake in a trend I’d been envying on other bloggers and contemplating for myself for a while: mid-length. It’s still longish I mused. I can still let it air dry. I used to really suit short hair! And so the inner monologue for mid length hair continued until I booked myself in with my hairdresser and literally went for the chop.

So what went wrong? Nothing really. My hairdresser was a little reluctant (I should have seen that as a sign… ah, hindsight) but we were both happy with the final result. I had a party that night and as it was styled to perfection I relished in the unusual compliments on my hair** and consequently lulled myself into a false sense of security.

That was, until I washed it the next day. Oh shampoo, how you tease me. I don’t know about you guys but usually the first wash after getting my hair cut is the best thing that happens to my hair; I style it myself and all is good in the world again. Not this time. Apparently mid-length hair doesn’t respond well to minimal styling (or lack of) and it seemed that no matter what I did I could not make my hair look acceptable. Even the straighteners came out (gasp). To cut a long story slightly short (mwahahaha, another ‘chop’ pun, sorry), I’ve been wearing my hair in a bun for the past 5 months, in the hope that my hair will pull a rapunzel and come down past my derriere in the near future.

So where am I now? Well my mane is growing back, I’ve found a way to style it though it’s still in a bun 90% of the time, and I still haven’t braved  a crop top. Having said that, I did buy a pair of Birkenstock-a-likes from H&M. So maybe I’m slowly starting to embrace the odd trend.

What do you guys think? To trend or not to trend?

*and on and on and on and on and on and on. Okay, I’ll stop now.

**Usually I just don’t bother making much of an effort: blow dry, then wave by putting it in a bun or two.

Just in case you missed this on Instagram (check out my profile for additional pics!) he weekend before last I took a trip down to South Wales with my family, to celebrate the Wedding of my Uncle! To say it was stunning would be an understatement; I spent most of the day in awe of the surroundings. They got married in a turret! A TURRET! So feast your eyes on a select few highlights of my weekend, which involved great food, great drink and even more amazing weather & company.

Downton Loafer - Russell & Bromley

Sneaking back into blogging with a S’il Vous Plait post which incorporates 3 of my favourite features into one shoe: flat, loafer & sparkly. Thanks, Russell & Bromley. You’ve made my heart quiver with excitement, and my bank account quiver with nerves.

I’m also a big fan of these Guything loafers, also from Russell & Bromley.
