Who’s ready for spring? To me, February has always been an odd month! I’m still trying to hold on to those resolutions I made in January, the weather is strange & I find myself wanting to wear bright colors and sandals all the time. My body is craving warm weather & sun. (I swear I’m Vitamin D deficient, sometimes!) When everything feels just a little out of whack, the one thing I can count on in my closet are transitional pieces. The tried & true, never-let-me-down kind of clothes.
October is just around the corner, and it’s hot as you-know-what in Baton Rouge! I thought this chic look would still be appropriate for the early fall weather here. I’m dreaming of scarves and boots, but instead I’m wearing a chunky cardigan to work, and then tying it around my waist as I leave for my lunch break to go buy a pumpkin spice latte. And yeah, I’m sweating. *sigh* Oh well, fall will come soon enough! A girl can dream.
Today, it’s all about discovering your personal style. So far, we’ve covered how to begin your wardrobe basics journey and how to match your wardrobe to your current lifestyle. Make sure to catch up by reading parts one and two. Because personal style is a big talking point, I’m going to to discuss your color palette in the next post!
On the first day of spring, I couldn’t wait to pull out my white dresses, tops and pants. Especially white denim. My favorite spring outfit by far are these crisp, white pair of cropped jeans and a relaxed button-down blouse.
This week, it’s all about connecting your wardrobe to your lifestyle. Your basics are the foundation of your wardrobe, so they should reflect what you do most often, whether it be at the office, at home with the kids or traveling every weekend.
The first thing to do is a lifestyle breakdown. Think about your daily/weekly activities. Check your planner if that helps too. Where do you spend most of your time?
