It’s fun to think back sometimes about how my style has evolved over the years… When I was younger, I didn’t care about clothes or style. A lot of people who are into fashion knew they loved it from the time they could pick out their clothes, but that was definitely not me. I was a dancer growing up but a tomboy at heart so I loved wearing anything that was loose and touched me as little as possible.
In high school the theme somewhat continued but it was all about the sweatshirt. I then started to work for J.Crew and that’s where I began caring about clothes and thinking about what I wanted my style to be and wanted to wear. When I started, I wanted anything and everything colorful and patterned. After my first year I realized that colors changed so much from season to season and that owning only patterns wasn’t practical because I often times didn’t care for it much after its first season. So, I then took the opposite route and tended to wear mainly jeans and a t-shirt (which was most often white). I added pops of color through my love for shoes and jewelry.
As I’ve continued on my fashion journey I have circled back to bright colors and bold patterns, realizing that every outfit can’t consist of a white top. It’s fun for me to incorporate colors and patterns (trying not overdo it) while keeping my look somewhat classic and easy. I’m excited for a year or two from now to be able to look back at this post and many others and see how my style has transformed once again.
