Girls, help, I am having a style crisis. Since moving to London it has opened my eyes to the ridiculous amount of clothes that I own and don't wear. This is not only a total waste of money its taking up space in my lovely room. Rather than a tranquil space to unwind after a days work it's more a walk in wardrobe with a bed. I feel totally cluttered and have come to the conclusion that a serious sort out, de-clutter session and style evaluation is needed. Gone are the days of buying something because it was a few quid, the future will see me making wise outfit shopping decisions purchasing solid staples that albeit might come with a higher price tag but will last and ooze a bit more class.
I also think age is another factor to this style mid life crisis type feeling that I am having as Tuesday brings my 28th birthday. Yes 28. I honestly thought I would be married with 4 kids by this age, rather thankfully I am not. Although one day that would be a dream I'm not quite ready for all that just yet, I mean that's pretty hard to do when your still flying the single flag eh ;-) Getting back to my age, I feel hitting 28 should bring a small style update in the form of more stylish classic pieces, less flesh flashing numbers (yes gone are the days of the mini body con dress, mainly because my diet plan seems to have gone AWOL) and savvy shopping tactics. Here is some style inspiration, accessory wise I can't completely ditch the gold as it's sort of in my DNA but I have picked out some of my fave looks that could fit in with the wardrobe update...

Wish me luck on the savvy shopping front, it's going to be hard considering I LOVE a bargain. But seriously I really don't need any more vintage shirts.
