Yes. This picture is blurry. But there is a reason I decided to use it anyway. I think it perfectly sums up where I’m at with finding my personal style. You remember I did a style coaching session right? And while I came away with an end goal of how I want to dress, there is a definite transitional phase as you really get the hang of what fits in your style profile. This photo was taken when I went to a blog networking event. This was a real risk for me. Although I LOVE the dress (my friend Carole gave it to me and it fit me like a glove) I haven’t worn a dress that short in years. I know, it’s not even that short. But it was out of my comfort zone. But I paired it with my favorite pair of black booties and felt like I looked pretty cute. I paired it with a black leather jacket of my husbands that has a black sweat material hood. I felt like it perfectly fit the look that I love: a little rock, a little tough, casual, put together. So while this outfit worked it is still not super easy for me to put outfits together.
I still find things in my closet that do not belong. I really need to do another round of cleaning out. Every time I walk in, I see things, that while they are cute, they don’t belong in my closet. This will continue to be an ongoing process. And I find it really exciting! It is such a great way to learn more about myself. And while before I assessed my style, I loved fashion, it is almost more fun now when I see something that I just KNOW is my style. So I’ll keep plugging away. Do you have a clearly defined sense of style for yourself?
