Summer feels like it has not been here long enough but somehow we are now firmly in the middle of August. Once August is here,we begin the transition into the fall. The beginning of fall reminds me of new years. As the seasons change, it allows us to have some time to reflect on what we want to achieve in the coming months. It’s a fresh start and our wardrobe can reflect that. I don’t believe that for every new season you have to completely redo your wardrobe. All you need is some new inspiration to rework pieces you already have. There are five different styles that you have experiment with. You might find one that really fits with your style, or maybe you want to try out something new. I hope these styles inspire your fall wardrobes. Please comment what you are looking forward to trying.
In previous blog posts I talked about style and having a personal style. In this post I want to expand on this idea because it can be a daunting task to figure out what you like. Sometimes you can have an idea in your head and when it comes to trying it on, it just doesn’t work or fit right. A great starting point is looking at your body and seeing if it fits into a body type. Now when it comes to body types, I really want to stress that there is absolutely no one “perfect” type. These are merely suggestion on what can feel good and enhance what you already have.
Have you ever walked to your closet, opened it up and all you could think is “I have nothing to wear.” If this thought process is happening daily perhaps you are in a style rut. A style rut occurs when you are no longer inspired or excited to style yourself. If you wear something that makes you feel good, then it can help you feel better. Even if you feel nervous inside, wearing clothes that make you feel confident can help you fake it till you make it. The act of dressing can become a ritual of self-love. It doesn’t have to be stressful or make you feel bad about yourself.
Colour, it can bring nerves to the boldest of dressers. It is pivotal to not only our wardrobe but also to the world we live in. Colour can evoke memories, emotions and even regulate us. The colours we chose can help to express who we are and tell our story. Colours can influence how we dress, with each season magazines claim a colour of the season and even Pantone chooses a colour of the year to be the most popular. There are trendy shades that pop up everywhere and then fade away but for the most part colour is timeless. It is completely up to personal preference and what feel the best for you.
We are now officially in July, which means summer is in full swing. Flowers are in full bloom and kids are gleefully out of school. With the warm weather comes lighter layers, and bathing suit season. There is nothing quite as refreshing as going for a swim on a hot summers’ day. The change in weather can also bring up feelings of insecurity. In this article I want to talk about confidence and embracing our bodies just as they are.
Have you ever found yourself looking at your clothes and feeling like it all lacks cohesion? Creating a wardrobe that is functional and can seamlessly transition you from work to home doesn’t have to be difficult. Whether you are starting from scratch or looking to just tweak your existing closet, here are some ideas that can make it an easier process.
Hello readers. Now I don’t know about you, but I love going to the thrift store and looking for new pieces to add to my wardrobe. When you’re just starting out thrifting for the first time, it can seem quite daunting. There are a lot of sections and looking through it all can feel like looking for a needle in a haystack. It can feel overwhelming but it doesn’t have to be. I have some advice that will hopefully help.
