I for one am thrilled that today is Friday! Although it’s been a great week, I’m looking forward to a weekend of relaxation. For the 1st time in I don’t know how long, I am NOTHING to do this weekend. Hallelujah !
Moving onto today’s post, I thought it’d be fun to look back at some of my favorite outfits and see what those outfits said about me. Personal style is, well, very personal to me lol. I think it’s great to embrace trends but I’m all about being unique and comfortable when it comes to clothes.
- African Inspired Tunic - This outfit says quite a bit about my personality. I’m a very free spirited person and I love wearing clothes that express that side. Clothing items that are loose fitting and non-restricting make me feel comfortable and free. As a no-fuss kind of gal, this easy breezy outfit is basically what you’ll catch me in 80% of the time.
- Button Down & Jeans - This outfit is yet another standard look for me. I’m a huge fan of men’s button down shirts – I purchase most, if not all of mine, form the thrift store or Goodwill. They’re easy to pair with denim, leggings, or jeggings and since I wear all three most days, I have several. When it comes to my personal style, I feel that I can never go wrong with classic pieces and simple, clean lines. This outfit has a little bit of all three.
- Stripes & Prints – I guess this outfit shows that although I’m laid back and chill, I do have a fun/crazy. I may not act crazy all the time, but some of my outfits, like the one above, do the acting for me LOL! I LOVE prints and stripes, especially leopard print. I think I wear some type of leopard print everyday, lol. My mom laughs and tells me that I remind her of my great-grandmother, Grandma Mary. She always wore some type of pattern, sequin or sparkle. I guess I see the resemblance.
- Color & Floral - I don’t wear heels that often but when I do, it’s usually to church or a day when I feel like dressing up for work. As you can probably tell by now, comfort is key when I get dressed. I’m not a fan of skirts, so I often buy lots of fun, colorful dresses. I also like floral, yet another pattern, because again it brings out my feminine and girly side. I have fun “dressing up” and I always tend to play with bright colors whenever I do.
So I guess in a nutshell my clothes say that I’m a laid-back, classic, no-fuss kind of girl who enjoys playing with patterns and colors and may “dress up” and from time to time. As much as I love fashion, I’m not a slave to it. I do what works for me and I make sure that I’m always comfortable in whatever I wear. If I want to wear a tight dress and a red lip for date night with the hubby, I’ll do that. If I want to bum around in leggings and an over-sized mens shirt, I’ll do that too. It’s all about balance and knowing where and when to wear certain outfits.
What do your clothes say about you? How do you define your personal style? Let me know! Until next time, be blessed and have a great weekend!
P.S. All of these outfits have 1, or more, thrifted pieces – I guess thrifty and frugal are 2 more words to add to my personal style description, huh?
