Before I started blogging and was researching the entire process, many of my resources were suggesting that I find my signature style and be able to precisely articulate it. This was very difficult for me because I really do not fit into a neat little precisely articulated package in fashion…or in anything really. I like preppy styles. I like vintage fashion. I like current trends. I like bohemian styles. I like throwback hippie clothes. I like chic and sophisticated looks. I like structured pieces. And I like loose flowing items as well. I like shoes. Literally all shoes. I like necklaces and wearing them alone or layered. I only recently started to like stacking bracelets and changing up my earrings. I don’t really like handbags as I don’t have the time to change out bags to match outfits and I need a bag big enough to hold all of my mom essentials. So you will rarely see me with a handbag in photos.
So where does this leave me? An imprecise, unarticulated style enigma? Maybe. But I can say this with certainty…I like jeans. Really like jeans. Jeans are the best article of clothing for this stay at home mom. I can dress them up, down, or anywhere in between. But in the end, I am still just wearing my same old trusty, comfortable, durable jeans.
And scarves. I really love scarves. If I had to have a trademark piece it would have to be a scarf. In the cooler seasons, I wear scarves for warmth. All day. Every day. Inside the house and out. My neck is always chilled. So I always wear a scarf. I’m warm and toasty and they look cute. Scarves have become so much a part of my style over the years (I have accumulated quite a few, to say the least) that I feel something is missing without one. I can’t put them away just because the weather turned warm. I just switch to lighter weight scarves and don’t wrap them as snugly around my neck. So I guess my thing…my true trademark thing…is scarves.
