Time for a style (r)evolution
Getting stylishly confident.
As both of my children get older, I can see how they changing. They’re getting taller. Their speech and writing skills are developing at a staggering rate. They are generally getting more amazing every single day.
One thing I love is seeing them get more confident in themselves. Both Olivia and William are becoming increasingly vocal and eloquent in the way they express their thoughts and opinions. They are 2 children who certainly know their own minds.
And they’re finding that it’s not the only way that they can express themselves. They’re increasingly reflecting their personalities through the medium that is fashion. Forget a style revolution, there’s a real style evolution going on!
I love how Olivia’s style is growing and developing as she gets older. She’s starting to get her own ideas about the type of clothes she likes and seems to have a natural eye for accessorising and mixing and matching her clothes to make fabulous outfits. I’m rather envious if truth be told!
And as William gets older, he has also started to take an interest in the clothes he wears.
Style is an ever-evolving thing. I know that my own fashion sense has come a long way from the days of baggy t-shirts and multi-coloured dungarees in my pre and early teens (please don’t judge!). I like to think that it continues to develop even now. My own style is much more refined nowadays than it was in my teens or 20s.
But back to my children. I love recording how their individual style is developing and evolving as they get older. This is why I have decided to introduce a new, weekly style feature to this blog. Every Friday, I’ll be publishing a post all about my children’s evolving fashion sense: from clothes and accessories to footwear and even ways that Olivia likes to wear her hair. Who knows, perhaps now and again you may get something about me too.
(Bloggers: if you like the sound of this and would like to write your own ‘style evolution’ posts, let me know. It would be amazing if others wanted to join in and I’d be happy to turn it into a linky.)
