As a style blogger, this is probably the most vague post I will ever write about style. Style is so personal and expressive and that’s why I think about it as often as I do, but lately I’ve felt like I’ve been in a style rut. I’ve experienced some confusion and I blame Florida and my work and blogging. At 25 years old, I should have my own established look right? Some may say that I do, but I still feel like it’s constantly evolving. Then throw a tropical climate and a brand that is very 70’s boho in the mix and as a midwest girl, I’m bound to get a little turbulence on my style journey. And as nice as it would be to frolic around in resort wear all year, that doesn’t feel very me (and would be nice to reserve specifically for vacations). For a while I had forgotten what it felt like to buy something and know with certainty that it’s the right fit for my wardrobe. More recently, I’m remembering this feeling and staying true to what feels right, not just what’s at my disposal. Which is why today, I’m sharing this outfit. A striped top and ripped denim for a look I could wear a million times over and never tire of. A look that I’ve also relentlessly told myself is “too boring” for the blog. I may be a style blogger, but I'm still a jeans and a tee shirt girl at my core.
