I can't say dear reader that I have ever been a dedicated follower of fashion. And apart from a brief period in my yoof when I dressed as a skin head, think Prince of Wales check dresses, Crombie coats and Sta Press. I have never really thought about dressing in a particular style.
In my twenties I 'discovered' vintage clothes and would often hoof it to Portobello Market for a little weekend number. I still do have a penchant for the odd vintage piece, but it's not a 'look' I feel I could go with on a daily basis.
Just recently though, and partly due to my visit to Reykjavik, I have become drawn to all things Scandinavian. Take a squiz at my Scandi/Norse board on Pinterest and you will see where I'm coming from. My Mother's maiden name is a Viking one so I do have some deep connections to that part of the globe.
I'm thinking of adopting a new style, a Scandi one. It will need to evolve, not least because I will have to grow my blonde hair long enough to feature some plaiting. But also because I'm not about to go out and spend thousands on a new wardrobe of clothes.
Don't worry I won't be seen wearing a winged Norse helmet. Although I do love a bit of eccentricity as you know.
