When I was a girl, my mom would say how easy I was to dress. I'd wear just about anything she brought home to me. I liked it all. Color, print, trend, etc - I didn't have a very defined style then, and when I think hard about it, I'd say that I don't have a terribly defined style now. I can tell you with something close to certainty what I won't wear (body-conscious skirts and tops not really my thing, for instance), but I'll also dabble in all the various "style profiles" that exist out there. I remember flipping through a book on style once (was it the Lucky book? Or the Instyle guide? Can't remember...) and it gave me all these profiles I should try to identify with - "gamine," and "classic," and "bohemian," and "runway," etc. I sort of liked them all. I like my cinched waists and full skirts. I love my skinny jeans and asymmetrical hems. I love ruffles and bows but I love clean minimalism too.
It's the variety that makes getting up and getting dressed in the morning so fun - and for me, this sort of reflects the many hats I wear in life, from day to day. Researcher, mother, blogger, wife, educator, friend, daughter, bibliophile, fashion-fiend, geek, etc, etc, etc...
What stories are your clothes telling the world about you, today?
Necklace: Miss November Studio Ladybug Necklace
There's something I really love about asymmetrical handkerchief hems on shirts. I'm not sure what it is, but maybe it has something to do with the fact that they give me explicit permission to keep my top untucked? Sometimes, less really can be more.
