Growing Into Your Style
I’ve had a pretty consistent grasp of what is “me” and what isn’t “me”–the reason why I managed to avoid the statement necklace trend of the 2010s–but, until recently, some of what felt like “me” wasn’t quite “me” yet. Now that I’m in my thirties, it’s been so great to feel like I’m finally there. I feel much more settled in myself, my style, my life, and I feel a lot more confident personally. I’m in “my prime,” as Jean Brodie would say.
It’s nice to feel more confident in myself and it’s really nice to finally feel like I’m in the right place in my life to wear things that I’ve cherished but haven’t yet worn as an adult–my mother’s scarves, Belgian Shoes, my mother’s overcoat… the list goes on.
Now that I’m “in my prime,” I’m working on truly defining my style. As you all know, starting this blog was a way to document this process–to invest in fewer and better pieces, to get rid of impulse purchasing and past impulse purchases, and to narrow down “my list.” It’s been such a fun journey, and I’m truly enjoying every minute of it.
When did you hit your “prime”? And what things in your closet did you wait years for?
