Here's a few days of WIW. My computer's been acting up - I think I'm going to have to start image editing on my husband's computer....
I've been enjoying my summer wardrobe lately! Not that I think I'm dressing super fabulously, but my wardrobe is feeling more "me". I actually like most of the pieces, and I want to wear them, and if anything, I feel like summer is becoming too short - I won't have time to wear all the combinations I could.
This is coupled with a new style realization - or a set of them. I'm not sure how to put it into words - but I like to read the blog Into Mind, and she did an interview with Kali of The Nife en l'air. Kali's descriptions of her style really resonated with me, and have, at least this week, given me a bit of a definition to my current style. She described hers as "androgynous and gamine". Through reading her thoughts, I realized that I feel most "me" when I'm in clothes with fairly simple lines, and at least one bright color. Kali linked to another blog, Lost in a spotless mind, who has a series on finding your style. It doesn't say anything that you all haven't already told me, but it's making some sense to me now, and I think I'm seeing trends in what style expresses who I am well.
If you're still reading, I hope I didn't bore you to death.
Here's three recent outfits:
#1 print top with white jeans. It finally occurred to me what's wrong with this top: The straps are too long. I like the print though, so in to the mending box it goes.
#2 pink top with cobalt capris. Hmm.. I think this pink is too close to my skin tone, and will find a new home.
#4 A happy outfit - spring green shorts and a chambray sleevless top. This may be one of my favorite summer combos so far. (Though I had no idea what shoes to wear with it). I felt super comfy and very much like me).
Oddly enough, as much as I like bright colors, to me blue isn't bright. It's almost a neutral. I don't understand why.
Suggestions for improvement on my outfits? Thoughts on my naval gazing?
