How time flies. Okay I am only 24 and by no means old, but sometimes I look back at the outfits I wore a mere year ago and cringe a little. As I have grown wiser (sounds better then older), my tastes have changed, especially my taste in fashion. 
Currently, I am in the process of moving to a new apartment and during this rather boring process my friend and I came across some pictures from university. Lets just say, they were hidden in a box at the back my wardrobe for a very good reason. But nevertheless, it provided us with a good laugh. Although we had a good laugh at my expense I will never regret what I wore, I just find myself thinking how much my tastes have changed and how I wouldn't wear it now. 
The term 'peacocking' (google it) springs to mind when I look back at these pictures. Being younger and less confident both with my appearance and opinions I can definitely say clothes were a way of expressing myself, especially as I had not developed a confidence to voice my opinion. Fashion in this instance gave me the courage and I definitely credit it amongst other things in building my self esteem. Don't get me wrong, I have never been a shrinking violet, but that doesn't mean I don't have insecurities. As I grow up I feel I have become more self assured and find I don't dress to gain a reaction or attention as much any more. 
Although, some of the outfits I wear now maybe described by others as 'peacocking', I feel they best reflect my confidence. With age I also find myself appreciating the cut of a trouser or the statement a simple outfit can make. I think I just want to become Parisian... Well some days I do, other days I enjoy the eccentricity of English street style. I also find an increase in how I am using my heels, for example; they used to be saved for evenings out with girlfriends, now I have no fear in wearing them with a simple outfit. Today was such a day. 
Has your style changed or adapted with age? Or are you still rocking the same look?
