Everyone has their own way of dressing, styling, and overall fashion. There are so many categories that can be used to identify a personal style that it’s almost confusing and kind of annoying. And then is style innate? Do you learn it? Are you allowed to change it? Can you be boho and also sporty? Can you be influenced by other people’s style? Literally, the answer to all those questions is…YES! Style is so versatile – you can’t always readily define it and it shouldn’t be boxed up. Style should be open-ended and that is why I don’t think I’ll ever be able to define my personal style. People who have read every blog post, follow me on social media, or know me personally know that I wear WHATEVER I feel like. I wear what makes me feel good and what I feel looks good. I do not just follow what other people wear and if I am influenced by someone’s outfit I’ll find a way to make it my own. One day you’ll see me in a sweatsuit and sneakers, the next day in heels and a dress, the next day jeans and a t-shirt, the day after that a romper and some sandals, and then the day after that you might catch me in heels again – balance baby. It all depends on what side of the bed I woke up on and how I’m feeling. I love wearing things that have unique hems or unique sleeves and I’m really not a fan of tight clothing because I utterly despise shapewear. With that being said you will, 9 times out of 10, see me in clothing that is usually a little looser and with more of a flow. Colors don’t play such a big role either, I have a wide range of colors in my wardrobe (but I do love a good black anything). None of this defines my personal style though, it is undefinable. So below, I have 2 outfit examples that will show how my style varies.
“Fashions fades, style is eternal” – Yves Saint Laurent
1st up: If you watched my most recent Youtube Video, you’ll see this army green dress that I purchased from Asos that is now sold out. The dress is a little oversized and very comfortable, featuring buttons all the way down the front and sleeves that you tie. I paired it with some white converses, some silver hoop earrings, and a pair of mirrored sunglasses. Sidenote: you will rarely see me in a ton of jewelry, I am not a fan!
2nd up: This GORGEOUS polka dot black and white flowy jumpsuit, also from ASOS. The lower back is cut-out, which for my ladies with problem areas on their back that they aren’t too comfortable showing, THIS is an awesome jumpsuit. I paired it with black and gold fringe earrings and yellow opened toed, thick heeled sandals from DSW.
