Personal Style

When it comes to my personal style, I finally feel like I have figured mine out. I was all over the board throughout high school and college, which is completely understandable as we are constantly changing.  In college, I was in classrooms a lot and trying to fit my teaching wardrobe to my every day wardrobe which were just very different.   I would say my style has transitioned from feminine and classic to more feminine and chic, with a little bit of an edge to it. I am also figuring out what truly works for my body and how to alter pieces to help me feel my personal best while wearing them.

Anthropologie // David Yurman // Kate Spade // Poshlocket c/o

Currently, I love mixing patterns and colors and pairing them with the perfect bag.  Neutral pieces had always filled my closet so I love stepping out of my comfort zone.  I also used to wear my hair the exact same boring way every single day so I am all about exploring new ways to spice up a traditional hair style.  And what would complete an outfit without all of the little details down to the nail polish. How I had never worn red before yesterday {no, I never wore it for 23 years}, I will never know.  

How would you describe your personal style? Has yours continued to evolve as well?

And just in case you didn't see my Design Your Life post over on Jess Lively yesterday, you can check it out here!

I think your style is great, always an inspiration! (And not just the vest, ha). And I love the reminder of trying new things with your hair...that is somewhere I definitely get in a rut.

Love this!! I am definitely in the same boat with not being a fan of red for the longest time, but suddenly I've got an obsession with it. I'd say I'm still defining my personal style, which is such a fun adventure!
