I thought it would be fun to spend the last four days of the year looking back at what I wore and how my style has evolved. I feel like I’ve really grown a lot this year, both in my sense of style and as a person. I’m going to be looking back three months at a time. This post will look at the first three months of the year.
Wow, a lot has changed. This is my favorite outfit from January, because it’s one of my first experiments with color combinations and textures. The hair looks awful here, but it was right before I got this hair cut. At this point, I remember feeling a lot of frustration at the fact that I really didn’t like much of my winter wardrobe. I think I’ve improved this a bit, but I still need to knit some pullovers.
It was so easy to choose a favorite outfit for February, because it was so pivotal. That was when I purchased my first pair of Fluevogs, my goldenrod Malibrans. That was the most I had ever spent on one item of clothing/ accessory at the time ($150, on sale). It was a real stretch in my color spectrum for me too. I can’t begin to measure how much of an impact these shoes have had on my personal style.
March was the first month where I really began to experiment with layering. I began reading Academichic around this time, and was inspired by those lovely ladies to try belting cardigans over dresses. Layering has been a key element of my style ever since.
Stay tuned for the rest of the year in review!
