I’ve been spending a lot of time lately refining my personal style. My view on style is that it is a form of self-expression—not a tool for comparison or vanity. I honestly do not believe that there is even good style and bad style. It’s truly a matter of opinion, and what we choose to wear should always be a reflection of who we are and how we feel, rather than something to get attention or compliments.
Over the past month I’ve realized there are a lot of clothes I’m hanging onto that I don’t really wear and I don’t really love, and it’s gotten me thinking about what it is I do love and what clothes make me feel most like me.
The answer? Neutrals. Lots and lots of neutrals. I’ll write a lot more on this later (specifically, how to create a small, chic, neutral wardrobe that works), but for now I give you a smidgen of inspiration from my closet—simple, cozy, chic and 100% my style—oh, and of course it includes the most perfect cozy sweater. It’s absolutely one of my new wardrobe staples!
Mossimo Open Sweater // J.Crew Facotry Striped Layering V-Neck Tee or LOFT Striped Puff Sleeve 3/4 Sleeve Top // HOBO Sheila Bag // American Eagle Jeggings or Madewell Skinny Skinny Jeans // Merona Kailey Ankle Boot
