Rule Breaker

"Fashion should be a form of escapism, and not a form of imprisonment."
- Alexander McQueen

I couldn't agree more with Alexander McQueen, it's true; fashion should be a form of escapism and not a form of imprisonment. We should all have the ability to think for ourselves and therefore decide within ourselves what is best for us in every aspect of life, including, what it is we wear and how we portray ourselves to others. I'm all for expressing yourself in your fashion choices and that is exactly what I done with this outfit.

To be honest, and if you have been following my journey for a while, you'll realise I don't have a particular style. I'm always changing things up, whether it be my hair or the clothes and shoes I wear. I guess I just get bored easily and hate to appear predictable. I like to leave people wondering what I'm going to wear and how I'm going to style it. With me there are no rules, and if someone tries to promote or encourage rules, I always break them.

Hey, what's the fun in following fashion rules anyway. I see beauty in the unexpected. I'm the one who would like the dress that everyone would think is ugly or unflattering. I'm the one who would wear yellow with green, although they should apparently never be seen together. And yes, like with this outfit; I'm the one who would wear sexy black gold studded ankle boots, with simple laid back, overly basic jogging bottoms, or sweat pants (to my followers who live outside of the UK). I'm a rule breaker.

I decided I wanted a cool laid back but edgy look this time round. So I paired the unusual jogging bottoms and ankle boots combo with a cropped sweat top from Pretty Little Thing. I added a trendy camouflage anorak from Forever 21 and my oldie but goodie faux-leather clutch bag from Zara. The finishing touches, which I think brought the outfit together well, was black lipstick from Kiko Cosmetics, gold layered necklace from Pretty Little Thing and black and gold sunglasses from Topshop. 

Now if this outfit isn't breaking the rules, I don't know what is.
