Sunday Style: Cobalt Blue & Stripes

FMVsundaystyle

Have you ever looked into your wardrobe and felt like you were getting too old to wear something? This has been happening to me every other day as of late because in a few short weeks I will be turning 25. I have realised that my personal style has changed tremendously over the past few months. I find myself nearly every week going through my wardrobe and muttering the words 'too short' or 'what the hell was I thinking?' I never used to be a jeans and blouse person, but somehow without even thinking too much about it, my sense of style is now merging into an older, more mature style and I'm actually preferring it.

Long gone are the days where I would wear six inch heels I could barely walk in, wear dresses that probably my dad wouldn't approve of and where I would go out on Saturday night without a jacket. These days it is all about comfy layers, a good pair of flattering jeans and heeled, sensible booties or court shoes if I need to dress up.  I have transitioned from 'just got out of university girl' to 'young professional' and I think I'm looking better for it.

My current style staples are a pair of figure hugging jeans, a smart versatile blouse that can be dressed up or down and a neutral coloured jacket or bright blazer depending on the occasion. I'm also quite partial to a leather jacket if I feel like 'rocking' things up a bit.  Before my 'style reinvention' I used to be a shoe girl, but I'm all about handbags now. My closet is bursting with handbags in different styles and colours, some high-street, some designer and somehow I cannot stop buying more. I feel like a good handbag completes my outfit. My current favourite is this Carvela bag from the House of Fraser Sale at Love The Sales.  I have teamed this handbag up with my lovely new Zara stripped blouse and jeans and this old blazer that I found at the back of my wardrobe.

Although no-one really looks forward to ageing, I am quite looking forward to my 25th birthday in a few weeks as I feel that I've finally reached my style maturity and I'm looking forward to experimenting with fashion a little bit more and straying away from the clothes a younger me would have once chosen. I feel more confident with the way I look now than I did at 21 and I'm ready for what the future will bring. Am I sad about turning 25? No, bring it on.

  3. It's quite interesting how your style as a fashionable person can change so much as you get older. I've always been one for comfy layers, but then again I'm about as un-fashionable as can be.

  5. Wishing you a very happy birthday for a few weeks time.

    I live your more mature look. I'm not sure I actually have a "style". Dressing up for me seems to be jeans without baby sick on them and socks that actually match.

  6. I know what you mean with the age thing. Sometimes I look at the jeans, t-shirts and vans I wear at 26 and think I dress like a teenager. But that's me and as long as you're happy that's all that counts. Love the look though x

  9. My wardrobe is pretty plain so I love slapping a bright jacket ontop. The cobalt blue colour is amazing - great outfit!

  11. I love the Carvela bag, I didn't realise that the brand did bags as well as shoes.

  12. Personally as a 30 something I find the mid 30's to be harder for fashion. I'm not sure where I fit in, I'm a mum it not mumsy, I'm overweight but fashionable, I don't want to dress like I'm still in my 20's but still want to look cool & funky (or whatever the kids are saying these days lol). Great post!
