It's Still Not a Phase Mum


Pretty Disturbia




Recently I've found myself gravitating towards how I used to dress my early teens, I'm talking about when I was in my full blown emo phase. lol, who am I kidding, at the age of 27 I'm still exactly the same. I totally feel like I'm justified in contacting my mother and gloating that all of this, defiantly wasn't a phase after dressing the same way for 13+ years ;) It's funny isn't how style is supposed to evolve, I guess mine has changed but only in subtle differences from back when I was 16, nearly 10 years ago [eek!] to how I dress now, mostly my style has stayed the same but matured to suit my age.  Fewer piercings, minor backcombing, smaller fringe and more tattoos. The whole emo thing just a little less intense. 

Even my music taste has is the same, I'm still in love with NFG, Paramore, The Starting Line etc and very much the pop-punk enthusiast I claim to be. I still hang out with the same bunch of people I did 10+ years ago. We still hang out and even though being an adult sometimes means that ~ lyf ~ gets in the way, be it clashing work hours, running your house and all the adult commitments means we can't hang out as much as we used to, however, true friendship means that when we do, it's like no time at all has passed.I'm incredibly fortunate to have such a friendship group. We have created some incredible memories together that I'll cherish forever.

I decided to go full blown nostalgia the weekend these were shot, totally inspired by the weirdly wonderful shirt from Pretty Disturbia, a clothing company based out in Manchester specialising in alternative clothing inspired by oddity [as they put it] stocking vintage pieces as well as their own creations. In my early teens is when I developed a penchant for unusual items to wear, I would suitably start to include a statement piece into my outfit, testing the waters before I went full on experimental. Paired with shorts whatever the weather [srsly] and my trusty vans, this kind of outfit styling is what saw me through my teens and then well into my early 20's. 

How has your style changed if at all? I'd love to know in the comments below <33

  4. I love this top! It looks so cool!

    I think there are some things that people will never grow out of and it's not a bad thing!

  6. Oh I really love that top! That's so cool that you've had the same style all this time. My style barely stays the same from year to year never mind from when I was a teenager ha
