Hiya, friends! Sorry I’ve been missing in action here on the dot. The past two weeks have been a wonderful whirlwind filled with friends, family, my 10 year high school reunion, work, binge watching Orange Is the New Black, and a few happy hours sprinkled in between! But, I am back and I am bloggin’.
I am lucky enough to be a part of an online community of amazing, diverse women. Inevitably we talk a lot about fashion (among other things like what is going on in our lives, current events, music and poop jokes). Recently we got to talking about personal style and how it mirrors our personalities. We all have a style we lean towards and have evolved into, but does it reflect our true selves?
Currently, I feel that I have two very different styles that I connect to and some random pieces from some passing phases in life (I’m lookin’ at you, long boho crocheted vest I never wore). Somedays I channel my inner 90s grunge girl and other days I could pass for a modern-day 50s house wife. Changing up my style has been something that steadily evolved, I’d cling to one look for a few years until it naturally phased into another. As I approach my 30s I am beginning to notice that all the different styles I’ve rocked in the past are still with me.
This of course completely threw off my sense of self for a few days. Nothing I owned felt right. I had a moment where I was blasting Alanis Morissette while digging through my closet ready to part ways with everything I own and start fresh with nothing but denim and plain t-shirts. However, it didn’t take me long to realize that this mess of styles isn’t really a mess at all. It is who I was, who I am, and who I am growing to be…all of these styles are me (all the plaid, torn denim, vintage, and polka dotted pieces of me).
So, tell me, what’s your style?
