A Wallflower at Heart

....growing up I truly did prefer to blend in, it always felt safer, free from criticism. As I've gotten older (LOL, I know what you're thinking but I'm not as young as you think...seriously), I've embraced who I am, what I like, and what I stand for. I've accepted that I won't always be accepted, neither will my likes, dislikes, opinions or even sense of style.

<- Do excuse the arm in motion...apparently I'm incapable of standing still for more than a second :)


It helps that my husband S is quite the extrovert and over the years he's worked me out of my shell but every now and then, he reminds me I have to creep out just a little more...

Last week S and I saw the movie UP, which I
absolutely adored. You've got to see it if you haven't already, it's sooo good!

Feeling a little retro that day, I decided to wear my favourite flower top, which reminds me a little bit of 70s wallpaper, regardless I love it! I love the versatility the tie allows.

Flower top - Free People
Jeans - Hudson
Navy Handbag - Katherine Kwei, I love her designs, do check her out!
Sunglasses - Ungaro
Shoes - Hilary Radley
Belt - Kenneth Cole


Wishing you a wonderful weekend!
I'm out of town so this is a scheduled post, see you on your blogs next week :)

  4. Hi Ela!
    I know exactly what you mean about gettng older and accepting your own self rather than trying to be somebody else for easier blending. :) Really like your outfit and love the third photo of you (not like I don't like the first two :) , but the last one is my favourite). xxx

    As for your outfit it's really beautiful! The belt adds that little something that makes it so unique!

  6. Love the top! I've always had a weakness for retro prints. I think as you get older, you automatically feel more comfortable with yourself and what you want to wear... just because you know yourself better. I think most of the teenager and 20-something years are spent still trying to figure out who you are. Lovely outfit!
