Becoming a girl

Fashion wise I'm a simple soul. I pretty much live out of jeans, t shirts and hoodies along with Converse. It's comfortable and easy to wear, but I always end up thinking that I'm dressed like a teenager despite the fact that I'm nearly 25 (tomorrow!). I've often browsed through fashion blogs of girls a good five years younger than me but who pocess a fashion sense much greater than mine and who aren't afraid of wearing what they want. I usually end up feeling a bit self concious wearing skirts or dresses, I'm not sure why this is. I don't feel like this if I'm dressed up for a party but wearing dresses or skirts in the day leaves me feeling like I'm sticking out like a sore thumb.

My mother commented last night, quite rightly, that I should be wearing more dresses and skirts. I have a good pair of legs so she tells me and I should be showing them off. She did throw in a comment about Matt wanting me to look more girly but he doesn't mind what I wear, I do wonder if he'd mind if I turned up at our wedding in jeans and a hoodie. Perhaps he wouldn't, but I'm sure everyone else would.

In an attempt to start looking more girly and more grown up I browsed the internet for suitable clothes that would achieve this look for me. This lead me to I've browsed this online shop many times but never bought anything but I decided that last night things would change, so I ended up dropping probably more money than I should have but not a huge amount. The money that bought me six garments on Boohoo would probably have only bought me two in Topshop (my dislike for Topshop is ever growing) so I don't feel too bad about it.

I bought the following:

I'm a sucker for anything with stars on, even my bedroom ceiling is covered in them thanks to Matt. Stars + girly + floaty = winner for me! Hopefully I won't look quite so grumpy when I wear it though...

How cute is this dress?! I need to find a belt similar to go with it so it won't just hang on me. That's also the hair colour I secretly want but don't have the guts to go for.

Another very pretty dress! I can see myself wearing both of these dresses with sandles but I'm not quite sure what else to wear on my feet with them.

Two cute cardigans to go with the dresses and the red one just because I couldn't help myself, I'm not just a sucker for stars, I'm also a sucker for red.
So there we go, a couple of things that will hopefully turn me into a bit more of a girl.
