My Style: 22.6.10: Introduction

June 22, 2010

Glamour. Many people comment on my style and say I often look glamours (don’t look at me now peoples).  Style comes effortless to me.  I find pleasure in dressing nice but I don’t place a lot of value on material things;  balance is important. I’m an all or nothing person; either I’m dressing up a storm or wearing a 10-year-old jumper and jeans. 

My Style. My Style is a new series I’ll be doing here at Be A Fun Mum.  My Style is about making the most of your wardrobe without spending a fortune.  It’s about finding the balance between dressing nicely and being obsessed with fashion.  My Style is about finding your own style.

Self-conscious. After my first two pregnancies, I wore my jeans out of hospital; however, during my last two pregnancies, I gained extra weight that I’m still trying to shake. I don’t like my body, and I’m not comfortable with how I look. In saying that, I don’t feel pressure to be thin — I’m totally over that.  I’ve come to terms with my body shape; I’ll never be petite; I’m strong.  What I do need to do is focus on being healthy. I’m working on it.

Memories. I remember Mum visiting my school, and I always felt so proud of her.  I felt proud because she always made an effort to dress beautifully and all my friends would comment, “Your Mum is so beautiful.”  I felt proud because she was so kind and all my friends would say, “Your Mum is so nice.” I too want my children to be proud of me.

This is My Style.  I love dressing up. I love dressing down.  I often wear the same outfit two days running and hope I don’t meet anyone who notices. My style is elegant with dash of edge. It’s pretty meets spunky. It’s simple with a variety of texture. I’m often consertative but am prepared to take risks. I love finding vintage and handmade style pieces. I don’t have a lot of clothes, I just know how to make the most of my wardrobe. My Style says me.

Black Skivvy: Eizbuy

Sleeveless Cardie: Vintage Primrose

Black pants: Target hand-me-downs

Red Boots: Half price from a little store on Main Street Caloundra.

Rose Ring:  Equip

Red Watch: Gift from a friend

Felt Brooch: Handmade item from the  Goombundgee Art Gallery.

[Goombundgee is a gorgeous country town. Put it on your places to visit list.]

What I love most: The boots.  Would have to be the red boots.

You look fabulous! I so want those boots! I too enjoy dressing up, and since I am at home all week, I love to dress up on Sunday for Church (plus, I guess it’s engrained in me from a kid, although I don’t dress up as much as Mum does – no stockings in summer for me, or petticoats!) I am on a tight budget, and also love making my own clothes. I have a few staple pieces that can be mixed and matched with others. Great blog :)

I would love to know how to sew my own clothes… but my talents don’t run in that direction. I too love getting dressed up for church… but no stockings lol

You look gorgeous! This is an area I’ve fallen short on for a while, but I’m just slowly getting my groove back on, now my youngest is two.

Yea, I know what you mean HMR. What is it about the magic 2 that we suddenly remember that we are a person… lol. My son is 2 and a half and I’m just starting to get back into the swing of things… just need to get fit now.

Gorgeous Kelly! You really remind me of both my mother-in-law and my best friend, who can pull off a great outfit based completely on op-shop finds. I don’t have a lot of flair for that sort of thing, but I’m slowly learning a few tips and tricks – looks like I can get some more from you!

I love it! I love that you put so much thought into it! Maybe that’s why I don’t know what my style is… maybe I don’t put enough thought into it… I maybe I’m just no style girl :)
