Your Personal Style


Last year, was my year of fashion. I spent pretty much the whole year getting a sense of my style. I spent a lot of time reading blogs, scrolling through Pinterest, flipping through magazines, so you kinda know. Of course it's never gonna stay exactly the same but for now I think I got it. 

I think defining your style can either be the easiest or hardest fashion choice, depending on how true you are to what you like, what looks good on you and what you want to say about yourself.

The most important thing to know...you are never too young or too old to define your style. Don't feel stuck or afraid to suddenly change it up.

Here are my 4 tips for defining your personal style:

1-Realize
There's a difference between defining your style and labeling it. All you're doing when you define your style, is honing in what you like.

2-Pick and choose trends
I can't stress this enough. There's nothing wrong with wearing trends as long as you're not wearing them for the wrong reasons. Think about how a trend would suit you and your wardrobe. If it's not something you absolutely love, don't wear it.

3-Signatures and basics
They will be the foundation of your wardrobe. Invest in those lifelong piece that you can wear with anything and everything.

4-Pinterest
Your board will physically be able to show you what you like, rather than just having an idea in your head. Remember not just to pin clothes, you can draw inspiration from anything. Pinterest is where I find my most inspiration as well as Tumblr (above is a screenshot from my blog).

A few favorites and things I've been loving for the month of November...

1. Love - don't ask me why or how but before this month I'd never had a black and white striped tee in my wardrobe. Now it's a staple and my #1 go to piece this month.

2. Desire - the fact that an item is "trendy" usually makes me hesitate when buying shoes. For these Free People flats, that was not the case. They're definitely on the top of my wish list.

3. Home - I love this space because the first thing you're drawn to is the floor but once you take a second to look more closely, you see the simple beauty in everything else.

4. Inspire - "live simply"

5. Listen - Prey by The Neighborhood has been on constant repeat.

6. Read - I'd been wanting the book How to Be Parisian Wherever You Are for a while, so when I got it for my birthday I was thrilled.

7. Pin & Post- my obsession with Pinterest and Tumblr only grows. More can be found on my pages: Pinterest / Tumblr

8. Miscellaneous - I've always loved beautiful fonts but recently I've been interested in learning calligraphy.

Outerwear 101


   

"It's your finishing touch, your very own candy wrapper."-Jenna Lyons

In my opinion, a coat is the most important investment piece a woman can own. I think a common misconception of people who don't like fashion, is that a coat should only provide warmth. While it should, a coat can also add another dimension to any winter look. As Jenna Lyons said it's a finishing touch. 

Over the last couple weeks, I myself have been on the search to find the perfect one. It's important to know what you want. It's not like a top, where you can let it live in the back of your closet. 

Ask yourself...
What colors do I wear most often?
How often will I wear the coat?
Where will I wear the coat?

Shop a few coats I've had my eye on lately!
