on finding me. part 2.
So back to this "finding me" topic. I've noticed over the last few years that my style has slowly evolved to something of stylish comfort. Although it is safe to say, I do love some of the trends happening. Color skinnies. Polka dots. And mixing patterns. But it is pretty accurate to define that my wardrobe is a reflection of seeking a comfortable laid back look. I gravitate towards a good pair of skinny denim and a well cut tee. Even as the weather cools and the days become short, I only have to throw on a few layers to transition from summer, to fall, to winter and then once again, back to spring.
To some this my seem lack luster and boring and it may be, because it is not who they are. Over the last year, I've really come to embrace this style of mine. I always feel good when I slip into my clothes, never uncomfortable or awkward. And I like that.
I can see, now that my personal style is settling, my spending is less. I don't feel the urge to keep up with what's hot now. I buy pieces that will be used over and over and over, even if that means I have six gray tees lurking in my closet. They are all loved and are worn time and time again. I put thought into every piece I buy, whether expensive or not, they have to pass the test. Do I love it? Would I wear it every single day if I could?
I may never be a trendsetter but I'm okay with that.
