Today Mum and I went into the city to do some shopping – I’d got a voucher for New Look which I was really looking forward to spending. As we wandered round the shop looking at things I couldn’t see that much I really liked, where as in the past I’ve seen lots of things. Mum made a general comment that the clothes I was now looking for, weren’t really the styles on sale here and I realised she was right. I’m not sure when it happened; but gone are the days when I wanted to find cute t-shirts and hooded sweatshirts, now I want more tailored classic pieces.
I think I’m going to have to start shopping in different places. When I pop into Monsoon there’s normally lots of things I like the look of – if only to have the budget for it! My priorities are shifting though, now I’d rather invest in items I love, than get lots I only like.
It was a shock to realise that I have changed and I’m growing up, changing everyday. I feel different in myself, even from a few months ago and that seems really strange. I like it, who I feel I am becoming. For years I’ve felt younger than I am, because I missed so much growing up; but now I start to feel like I’m catching up and I like it.
