WHERE IS ALL THE PERSONALITY? IN A BOX, THATS WHERE…

Have you ever created something from scratch and then looked at it, a huge part of your identity, and TOTALLY stopped relating to it anymore?

Well that’s exactly what’s happened with this here blog. For a long time I was scared to post this because I felt like my blog has changed and aged with me and I look at it now trying to be all minimalistic and blah blah those clean lines of a blog post and I JUST DONT RELATE ANYMORE.

I WOULDN’T EVEN READ MY OWN BLOG. So here’s the question on everyone’s lips…

Why would you?!

So from here on out I pledge to be the colourful and weird and (urgh I hate this word) quirky kid I was ages ago and not get sucked into minimalism or monochrome or capsule wardrobe or all those other fashion words and worlds that are oh so important in the blogger world but are completely not my bag of oranges. Are you with me? Dealio.

Here is to me, writing SHIT I’D ACTUALLY READ. INCLUDING THE WORD SHIT.

So In turn, I’m having a whole new rebrand (picture me singing “A whole new world” as I whipped up a real EMMA SNOWDON STYLE blog design and its coming to my YouTube page too.

Does anyone else feel a bit lost in all these fashion blogger trends? I mean, I work in fashion and I love clothes, but come on! Where is all the personality? like everything in life, does it always have to be boxed up?

Pink and sassy…

This whole look was devised because I REALLY LOVE these earrings that were on a superb deal from Topshop on sale Jewelry (£5 for 5 can you believe!!) (Excuse cat bum ears plz)

I love this one and I feel pink and black work almost as well as black and gold. Well for me anyways.

If we were talking about what suits me (skin tone, hair colour, eye colour) not that it matters as you know me, I’ll break the rules anyways… but if we were sticking to the rules, this dusty pink is one of my “colours.”

Instead of living by the rules, strictly speaking, I like to think of those colours that really highlight my features as my “signature” colours, and everything else is a playful messy bonus. E.g I love yellow. Probably don’t suit most yellow tones, but some I probably do. Not my signature colour though but hey ho and who cares and I’ll wear it anyways. Insert that girl doing hand ‘whatever’ pose here….

Moral of the story is, if you wear anything with enough confidence, you’ll rock it. More on that later…

As a stylist, I suppose I’ve got some tricks of the trade, some optical illusional wizardry that could help with bits and bobs here and there, and I’m formulating a plan to include these giblets of wisdom into my YouTube channel (shameless plug) so stay tuned.

Just call me emsnow and the giblets of wisdom. Who needs potter eh!

But for now, I leave you with my bargain earrings, my whistles dungarees and my Kin from John Lewis jumper and I wish you a lovely day, whatever it is you’re doing 😁

Darling, it’s never just another Instagram…

Just wanted to present my own public Instagram account to the world! As a stylist I’ve made an Instagram to run alongside my old blogger account, but 3 accounts running is just too much! (I have a personal one for photos for family and friends..trust me you’re not missing much, just pictures of pandas and such. I love pandas.)

But anyways, I’ve merged my style worky type account (it’s never work is it when you love photography and fashion) and my blogger account to make it more streamlined. So here it is, in all its glory,

@emmaisastylist

Feel free to follow me if you like OOTDS and general stylist bantz. I post very regularly (much more than any other social media, mainly cause I love it!)

And obviously I’ve thrown in a little OOTD. I promise a YouTube haul video is coming this week, and it’ll be up for Thursday. So much excite! STAY TUNED! I’ll be good, I promise!!

My feelings on “Summer” and “Winter” dressing

So I’m actually writing this, waiting for a bus, standing in the snow, and inspiration just struck me on how I honestly feel about “winter dressing” right now, in the new year of 2018. So it’s Janurary and it’s snowing, and I love snow. I have loved “winter dressing I.e all the good stuff of layering, wrapping up, hats, scarves, the lot for years. Seriously bring all the layers on, the turtleneck, the denim, the shirt as a jacket, the coat, tights, hats and big chunky knit scarves. For years I’ve always been more comfortable in my style and the whole winter vibes. The aesthetics of it all pleases me greatly.

Proof of standing in a bus stop in the midst of a snowfall.

But right now, standing in the snow, I’ve completely lost my love of dressing for winter, and I really want my summer garms.

Now I’m not saying I’ll feel like this forever, or even until tomorrow, but right now I’m hella bored of my winter wardrobe, the cold, and my frozen hands.

It doesn’t help that this year was the year I felt most confident in my summer wardrobe.

Some personal highlights here:

I felt my style evolve into something a little more laid back, minimalist but adventurous.

My favourite outfit of 2017 was without a doubt my pink jumpsuit I wore on my 29th birthday in Thailand. I felt completely confident and it was such a simple piece, just a jumpsuit but full of pattern and flavour, personality without being too complex. I also ADORE those tie up sandles from Matalan that I pretty much wore every day on holiday. I hope they bring them back this year because I destroyed them!

Biggest fashion regret of 2017 was that I didn’t get that striped jumpsuit that, looking back, was pretty bloody awesome.

So the snow is getting even heavier now and I’m going to rethink my wardrobe. Here’s to me injecting a slice of summer into my winter wardrobe, and just maybe I’ll get my flavour back.

Peace.

And just in case you didn’t believe that I’m out in the snow.. here I am on my way home
