I Like Fashion... And Shouldn't Apologise For It

It's been months since I've ventured into the previously familiar territory of an outfit post. I use the umbrella term of 'fashion and culture' to describe this blog, but I've ventured beyond those borders over the past few months. And I want to continue to do that, as my interests grow and views on the world develop. However I still really enjoy fashion. I sometimes worry that admitting that may lead some people to take my views on other matters less seriously than I'd like. I was flattered and thrilled while at CNN that my views on social media and millennials were sought after and taken seriously. I want to set a high standard for my content, whether it's fashion or politics or society. So I pose this question to myself, will putting together a 'What's in my bag' video will undermine any views I express on weightier issues? But the truth is I love fashion, I do. I think it's fun, creative and it is linked with so many other things I'm interested in like art and film. So I am going to continue to write fashion posts, alongside other posts, from travel to politics to society to gender issues to art and ethics. I hope I continue to have the confidence to write about the things that interest me, and hopefully interest those who read my blog.

In true Lexi Likes fashion, let's talk about what I'm wearing. Firstly, I have a newfound appreciation for middle partings and french braids. I have yet to master the skill to do them myself, but I've got my dear old pal Lily who I put to work wherever possible. Secondly, I am a big fan of this silk pyjama shirt I stole from my mother. The lingerie as outerwear has become somewhat of a trend, and I am a grand supporter of this. Finally, ever since my trip to Stockholm last October, I've been fully embracing my Scandi roots via fashion, opting for clean silhouettes with a lot of black, white and navy. It contrasts well with the golden locks I've been blessed with.

There you have it. In short, I like fashion, and shouldn't apologise for it.



  1. I love this outfit! Fashion is definitely worth talking about - you have to wear clothes every day, it's important!

  2. I like this outfit. I believe that every girl has to follow the fashion trends in clothing. But even have your own style.

  3. Your styling skills are on point! But if you have spend all your money on outfits and don't have extra bucks for an essay, use Ultius discount for ordering the best research paper you can imagine.
