Did my mum predict my 2018 style?

Monday, 3 September 2018


Who would of thought that something my mum bought me back in 2012 would be a big staple in my wardrobe now in 2018. Wild. 

I'm wearing two items that came into my wardrobe such a long time ago when I was in the habit of buying interesting pieces but not daring to wear them out. Well, I don't think daring is the right word because really I just never had the right occasion to wear them too. I bought this witchy leotard many years ago because it had this cross over feature on the front which I'm pretty sure can be made into a pentagram. It's so interesting and has made me feel like the bad with I deserve to feel like, but it's so low and shows alot of my chest which is an area of my body I hate. I must of had a confidence boost this year because I've been wearing it non stop! This same goes with this floral tassel kimono - who'd of thought something my mum bought for me (lets get one thing straight, I rarely used to like what my momma chose) would be the love of my life many years later! It does go to show how your style can change later down the line...but that also scares me because now I regret giving away items I never though I'd suit or wear. Is this the beginning of clothes hoarding? Possibly. 


The summer before I headed off to university I really found my sense of style that's formed into 2018, I always wore black high waist skinnies, a little crop top with lots of witchy jewellery and I had my hair cut into a cute bob! I loved that look and one thing to come out of it was this kimono, which at the type I just didn't have the confidence to style something like it. I always struggle with those 'second layers' - how to wear them casually because I don't see myself going to festivals or fancier places to step my style up a notch. It's something I never reach for to be honest, but something in me this past summer to took the challenge to bring back the kimono trend!

I always loved this one because it's quote gothic with a feminine twist - black tassel fringing all round the hems and sleeves, with a cute pink floral pattern. But how do you style this? I wanted an all black outfit underneath but it's just not in me to go for a plain vest t-shirt, so I added a more alternative piece and a floaty skirt to get those witchy feels brewing whilst the season changes over.


I never really know how to transition into autumn but for the cooler evenings I've been pairing long skirts with layers like this outfit and it's been doing the trick! If it's warm in the day it soon changes once it gets to 5pm here in the UK, so I'm definitely going to be wearing this kimono till we gravitate more towards jumper weather. I feel like I struggle so much to put together an outfit in summer but my wardrobe just flourishes when it comes to this season. I'm excited to see how alternative I can style a bunch of items, new and old here on heartshapedbones!

  1. All of the outfit pieces you styled together in this layered outfit look very pretty. I love the floral print on your New Look kimono, the delicate lace of your Killstar leotard and the drape and the bow on your floaty Primark skirt. You outfit photos are lovely, and you look extremely pretty in all of them.
    Best wishes for success with your shop Witch Crafts !!!
