A sweet but tough decision:

About a week ago I was sitting on a sofa in my home, flicking through a fashion magazine.  Two trend spreads jumped out at me. The first titled “Ice cream dream”, showing off the latest in pastel colours that are set to be huge. The second “wild child”, channelling the rock star inside us all through some rough and rugged style. No matter how I tried I couldn’t seem to decide on which spread I preferred, which is unusual for me as I’m used to having a very strong opinion on whether a style is my favourite at the time or not.  This led to the creation of two separate outfits, based on the two very different trends, in the hopes that I could then make a final choice on my favourite. Here's the outcome.

May contain rock:

 I'm sweet like sugar: 

I’ll admit even after creating the outfits I was no closer to making a choice, so I did what I thought was best in this situation. Enter outfit number three a mix of cute pastel and rock star style. I call it “A stick of rock.” (You see what I did there? It’s sweet and rocky?)

Anyway, hope you all enjoyed experiencing my fashion obsessed brain first hand and liked the outfits.

Thanks for reading guys,
