In my pursuit towards developing a personal style and a wardrobe that reflects the completely Instagram untrendy, 30-something woman that I am, I often come across trends that I so wish I could buy in to but worry that I’m just not cool enough.
Big Buttons is one of them. The high-street is awash with small camis and huge buttons that look perfect draped over bronzed, highlighted and chiselled modelesque shoulders. And paper-bag waisted skirts cinching in the waist of our favourite Insta-babes.
But what if, like me, you’re perpetually untrendy, unfashionable and wouldn’t know an apartment pant if it’s legs threw themselves around your neck and tried to strangle you?
How do you navigate picking up pieces from the stores, or online and seamlessly integrate them into a wardrobe that is just that bit too try hard but never quite tried on?
Well, I’m going to attempt to help. This might end up as a monthly thang, it might not, but I’d love to share with you a trend that I’m currently dying to be able to pull off, with just a few pieces I have my eye on to help me dip my toe in, without going full Rihanna at the Met Ball.
No this post isn’t my usual meat and 2 veg of grief, sadness, sex and blogger frustration, but it’s a bit of fun and took me twenty minutes to sling together so

Are you as obsessed with big buttons as me? Would love to see how you’re styling them so please Insta DM me or Tweet me with your finds.
You can also read a post I wrote on discovering my own style (even though I clearly haven’t, still struggle every day and now hate everything I was wearing in those photos) here.
