OOTD: Rockabilly Rocker



Outfit Details:
Scarf - Op-shopped
Yesterday was my first exam for this session, and because I am a mega procrastinator, instead of cramming in my final hours, I decided to do my hair and make up so I'd feel good going in there. I've always really loved the rockabilly scene, but struggled to get up the self-confidence to really try anything too out there. The closest I've ever gotten is buying a couple of seldom-worn 50s style dresses and wearing a cat eye and a red lip, but yesterday was the day I finally tried something rockabilly with my hair. 

I've been wearing this skirt/shirt combo to death since the weather started warming up, swapping out the Docs for thongs on particularly warm days. It's very casual and comfortable, but I feel really confident in it, and confidence is sexy, so what better time to pop on some vintage inspired make up and try out a bold new hairstyle? I think the combination of the 50's style make up, bumper bangs and head scarf with the 90s vibe band shirt, a-line skirt and Doc Martens is really cute and interesting. It adds a bit of flair to an otherwise casual outfit and I felt a lot more dressed up than I actually was all day.

Even though its far from perfect, I'm proud of the way my hair turned out. I certainly gleaned a lot of compliments all day, and think I'll definitely be popping to the op shop for some more cute scarves to make this hairstyle a part of my regular rotation.




I've been really stuck in a rut in the last few years trying to figure out what "my style" is. My sister has a set style, and many of my friends seem to have a set style, but I've always seemed to float between vague semblances of different styles - vintage, kitschy, punk rock, boho. I think I've finally come to a point where I feel confident enough to say "fuck it!" and just follow my gut and wear what I want, when I want. My style is clearly fluid and depends on the weather, what mood I'm in, where I'm going and what's inspiring me at a given time, and I'm okay with that. I'm also a lot more confident to mix styles like I did here, and maybe I'll get up the confidence to go out in full rockabilly regalia when my new petticoat arrives off ebay in the next couple of weeks. 

Look out for more rockabilly hairstyles on the blog soon!
 
 This was an outtake but I actually really love it!
