A couple weeks ago Merrick wrote a post about finding your personal style. As I read through I was like, "Whoa, I REALLY needed this!" Picking out my top 10 items was super eye-opening.
(You: Wait! That's only 9 items! Me: Number 10 is my moccs, may they rest in peace. I'll get another pair when they become available again in the fall.)
Apparently I like black, gray and an occasional splash of red. I have a thing for pieces that are either menswear-inspired (boyfriend shorts, moto jacket, track tee) or actual menswear (plaid button down). I like things that are loose around my midsection (I'm a middle figure
so that's where I gain and carry weight) but highlight my thinner arms
and legs. I love a little bit of edgy hardware, like the exposed zippers on the moto jacket and black tank.
Honestly, looking at those 9 items makes me go, "Yup, I could live with just those." That right there is my comfort zone.
Merrick also talks about picking things that work for your lifestyle and where you live. I used to LOVE heels but now I couldn't tell you the last time I wore a pair. They were fun when I only left my house on occasion but now I'm totally the taxi driver mom carting kids from A to B to C to... and I just want to wear flats and sandals. They're practical for where I'm at in my life!
Also, I own a strangely winter-friendly wardrobe considering Mesa's winter lasts for 30 seconds. I need more tank tops and tees and I should probably stop buying jackets.
Have you assessed YOUR style lately? How would you define it? What are your top 10 items?
