Printed Trousers And A Little Bit Of Honesty

Wow I can't believe how long it has been since my last post.  I decided to take a little blogging break and it ended up lasting a little longer than I intended.  I just needed a bit of time to clear my head and do a bit of soul searching.  It's not something I talk about much here on the blog but for the past 8 or 9 years I have been battling depression and anxiety on and off, when I started this blog it was my escape from that and I could appear to be the happy and confident person I always wanted to be.  The last month my anxiety has been really bad and I have really been having a crisis of confidence, so posting pictures of myself has been the last thing I wanted to do.  I have spent a lot of time thinking and have decided that being more open and honest here on the blog about my issues may leave me feeling happier and motivated than trying to pretend that I'm something I'm not.  I have recently started seeing a therapist who has helped me to realise that anxiety and depression is not something to be ashamed of and being able to stop trying to hide this part of myself may help me to overcome it.  I don't want this blog in any way to become about my anxiety and depression but I'm hoping being able to admit when I'm having a bad day and share how I'm really feeling on here may lead to me feeling a lot happier with my blog and leave me feeling a lot more motivated to post more regularly again.

So in a bid to become more confident I decided to update my wardrobe with these printed trousers from the Zara sale.  I was determined to add a bit of colour to my wardrobe this summer and stop living in my black skinnies, so I decided to take the plunge and order these lovely colourful floral and paisley print trousers.  I actually really love them and they are great for adding a bit of sunshine to my outfit seeing as the sun hasn't been doing much shining recently, typical British summer!

What do you think of printed trousers?  Are you brave enough to wear them?

  2. Hope you're doing better Sadie, I went through depression few years a go, and it was some of the saddest, loneliest time of my life and I can't believe how much different my life is now than it was seven years a go. The key is to always look at the bright side and keep yourself busy ;) You look absolutely stunning, you have such a lovely figure and I love those shoes and pants on you! I probably wouldn't be able to pull them off! ;)

  12. Ahh Sadie, I'm so very sorry you've been having such a tough time. My heart goes out to you. Not only does this post show how brave and courageous you are, it also shows you've done three amazing things; opening up and being so frank and honest, seeing a therapist and posting some bloody gorgeous pictures of yourself! If that doesn't show the world you're a fighter I don't know what does babe. Serious respect and love for you sweet :)

    I have some issues re anxiety and I recently started CBT which has been a great help. Sometimes it can be the most frightening thing to face, and I'm so happy your therapist has helped you and been such a support, it's such a strong step to take and I'm really proud of you <3 <3

    You are an absolutely beautiful girl with a stunning fashion sense, a wonderful blog and a kind hearted spirit. You so deserve the best in life, and you've always got a friend in me if you ever need one. You can always email me at if you ever feel the need. Much love to you Sadie <3
