Have you ever looked at all of the clothes in your closet and still felt like you had nothing to wear? Same. That doesn’t mean that its time to go on a shopping spree though, sometimes you have to shop your own closet to create the looks you’re trying to serve. I can’t tell you how many items in my closet I forget I have and when I come across them I instantly start creating new looks in my head. My number one rule for shopping your closet is to SWITCH IT UP! If the last time you wore that dress it was for a fancy occasion switch it up and make it casual.
When spring is in the air everyone including myself wants to revamp their wardrobe, I don’t know if its the nice weather, the new trends, or both that inspire the change but something sets us off. However in the midst of fanny packs, dad sneakers, berets and more I think it is important that we remember the power of our basic items.
I never thought I would see the day that fanny packs came back into style, I also should have known better because EVERYTHING comes back into style. Whether you call it a fanny pack, a belt bag or a “bum bag” the trend has been revived and is all over the runways and in these streets. Even though I love to experiment I was going to pass on this trend to be honest. I like the look on other people but I wasn’t sure how I would feel about it on myself and I try to stay away from anything that feels too trendy and overdone.
November is Diabetes Awareness Month so expect to see me wearing a lot of blue in my upcoming blog posts. Today I am getting a little personal about my diabetes which is rare but necessary for me at this point in my life.
These days everyone is a self proclaimed “fashionista” and what you wear is often the topic of discussion. There are those who dress effortlessly, those who dress like Kardashian clones and those who have no clue how to put an outfit together. Fashion and personal style are two totally different things in my opinion, you can wear an outfit that’s straight off of the mannequin and that’s fashion. But personal style is a feeling, a vibe, a mood, or whatever you want to call it. It shows off our personality and let’s people know who we are without saying a word.
