I don't know about you, but I am always questioning how I would define my personal style. I generally classify it as what I refer to as 'cute girl style' which is just another way of saying that I wear a wide array of things that I think are cute.
Lately, with the creation of more content for the blog, I have had to hone in and actively think about what I'm going for aesthetically. The problem is that somedays I get dressed and I feel like a straight up skater boy (holler at me avril lavigne.) Other days, I walk out the door feeling fem as helllll. But!!! These looks are total opposites. So I'm left standing in front of the mirror likeeee ???!!??? WHO AM I RLLLYYYY ???????
Ever since I stopped working at Anthro, I've been trying out the chill girl vibe. Jeans, high tops, t-shirts, less lipstick... it's been nice, but the other day I put on a chill-girl-go-to, and I didn't feel like myself.
Here's the thing, my whole life I have looked up to women like Audrey Hepburn, Jackie Kennedy, Jane Birkin, and Bridget Bardot. When my mom started teaching me about style these are the ladies that she pointed to for reference. Each one of these women brought something unique to the table, and had a personal sense of style that was congruent and easy to identify. I've always admired them for that.
Anyway, after my skater boy outfit change, I realized that I'm more of a happy medium type of lady. Leaning too far one way or the other is not for me. I love my levis, but I also neeeeeeeed my fem elements. I'm working on what that means in terms of furthering the congruence of my personal style.
All this to say, if you're going through a style rut, it's okay and it's normal. Especially in the winter months when you're forced to ruin every look with a jacket. The trick is to be brutally honest with yourself about who you are, and forget who you're trying to be. Do you. Always, always, always. No matter what.
Below are some photos of the ladies that inspire me. *Notice: they're all wearing pants and making them look gorgeously feminine by pairing them with at least one fem element. UGH. I love them all so much!!! They're everything I aspire to be!!! I'm going to start getting emotional if I don't stop typing now.
