Reflection: Part One (ASOS Dress & Lascivious Harness)

I am, Blog Reader, taking another little writing break this weekend as I head to Charleston for an adventure.  I’ll be back next week with my usual posting of lingerie and outfit posts but right now a little reflective pause is in order.  I’ll have some news on the blog soon about the future of StyleOnTheCouch and some little changes here and there.  My blog is coming up to three years old… what began as a weekend passion has grown into something that has first and foremost given me amazing connections all over the world but secondly allowed me to develop not just my personal style but different aspects of myself in the process.

I think there are some very interesting parallels that can be drawn between style development and psychological development.  These photos were taken by the amazing team of Amber McConnell and Julian Humphries of Red Rogue Studios in Austin, Texas last month and I absolutely love the outfit I am wearing and how I appear in them. I feel more confident and comfortable in my skin than ever before.  I’ve done a lot of growing up with you and the blog – taken on different professional challenges in psychology and fashion; I’ve moved countries, made new friends and connections, met some truly amazing people and lost some along the way… even with the challenges I hope I am evolving into the sort of woman I want to be.  My style too – quite basic at times, classic perhaps, elegant  maybe – I have fun with what I wear too which I love and I take risks for the first time ever, knowing that I’m going to be ok.

This fashion blogging business – it’s not just about the clothes, Blog Reader.  Let’s see if we can’t get another year of evolution in hey?

See you next week! Travel pics will be on my tumblr as always…..

Wearing: ASOS Midi Tank Dress; Aiko waistcoat from Lascivious; Mango Fetish Sandals.

Ps I’m behind on my own blog reading because of my travels – but to all my regular favourites and new finds, I’ll be back very soon I promise x
